    Product Description
    This is a plastic model kit, which comes unassembled and unpainted. So glue, model paints and other basic modelling tools are additionally required.

    Flying around winding roads high speeds, the Yamaha YZF-R1 super sports motorcycle shattered myths about big-size motorcycles. An abundance of option parts was marketed for this bike to enhance the riding enjoyment. Among these options, one set was supplied by Taira Racing, represented by former All Japan 500cc Champion, Tadahiko Taira. The Taira Racing version features a titanium muffler, a rounded carbon rear fender, and a lightened aluminum sprocket. With the addition of these parts, the power of the YZF-R1 at moderate and high speeds was substantially heightened. Cultivated through the experience of a champion rider, these parts were of both high precision and quality, earning the trust of many fans. We are proud to announce that the YZF-R1, equipped with Taira Racing options, has been transformed into an assembly model.
