If you mean the "Brembo" calipers on the GSX-R's, those are utter crap and can assure you that from personal experience (besides have you seen where the bleed screw is located?). Now, the Brembo M50's that come standard on the newest ZX-10R are another story...I mean, if Kawi can do it then why can't Yamaha?

And I heartily agree on the the auto-blipper, or more accurately, lack thereof. Come on Yamaha, why the hell are you pretty much the only ones holding out on a feature that's standard from damn near every other manufacturer?

Add engine brake control to my wish list. Just rode an 1199 Duke and a 2016 RSV4 and both have way less engine braking. The 1199 has 3 settings for EBC. Don't think the RSV4 did but doesn't need it. It would be pretty easy to add I think to the software.

I tried the RSV4 adjustable ABS. Pretty cool. On high setting (3) it was super easy to get it to kick the front lever. Surprised me the first time but it wasn't too bad once I got used to it. After the stint we turned it down. It's a cool adjustment.

I think the R1 doesn't kick at the lever as much as the RSV4 but all in all I was pretty happy with the R1 brakes this time. I had to move the lever out from 4 to 2 as it was growing slightly but after that I was pretty well ok with them. New brembo SC pads seem pretty damn good too.

You can have the engine braking adjusted in an ECU flash.

I started a thread on it a few months back as well. 09 thru 11 had some updates to the 12 thru 14. So, hopefully Yamaha keeps that trend and does minor updates for next year.

Anyone know when they usually announce the next years model?

Autoblipper at most and maybe another color option. Yammy did a damn good job with the new bike and im not sure if im biased but i feel yammy has more of a presence over the kawi and gsxrs so they dont have to include everything to promote sales.

I'm really hoping for white/gold. I LOVED my 2012... if we don't get that scheme soon, I might have to 'make' it.

Good judgement comes from experience, and a lot of that comes from bad judgement.

I'd like to see the brembo m50 along with the Showa forks on the standard r1. Oh and 330mm rotors. Even though I don't have plans on a new model anytime soon I like to see Yamaha at the top of every category. I feel right at home on my 04 r1.

04 R1 Gilles rear sets carbon fiber front fender,chain guard ,dash panels and heel guards. Pirelli supercorsa v2s my baby

I am from showa big piston folks (600cc), and I also have 2016 r1. My experience is showa is a way better one? Correct me if I am wrong. Showa convinced me that it gives me much more feedbacks, so I could push a lot harder, and I was able to tell what tires were doing. KYB from r1 was much more planted , but failed to give me details (vague).

Am I the only one felt that way?

I could brake harder on r1 due to planted feeling, but my showa was trembling lol.

Sneek peek at the new R1 in a new hit TV show pilot. It is going to air after the premier of Animal Instinct starring Sarah Marshall.
