Not exactly what the thread is about but I just bought a 2018 R1 a few months ago with 128 miles on it. I drove about 1,000 miles to pick it up cause it was such a good deal. I paid $11,400 before tax (just lie about the price when you register the bike). I didn't lie, so the actual price was around $12,000. Ive put a few hundred miles on it in the last couple weeks and everything is good. Still has another month of warranty from the dealer i bought it from. IMO you shouldnt buy new. I saved a ton of money, and the bike is mint. Ive owned 8 yamaha motorcycles now and never had a issue with any of them.
