    Default Somewhere under there....

    .....is the most sophisticated inline four cylinder engine in production, made by the company currently leading MotoGP. Can you see it?

    Perhaps more visible is the most sophisticated electronics package ever on a motorcycle.

    All incredibly compact.

    Saw the R1M at my track day 2 weekends ago. Pity it didnt overtake me. Think the guy just went out and did only 1 hot lap. Its seems you can ride them on the street here in Dubai. Thought the M was track only... seems not

    These days, almost more important than the engine. Dorna, in both WSBK and MotoGP racing are now using ECUs to limit performance and cheating.

    No, The R1M is not just a track bike.

    R1 and R1M both road bikes

    H2 road bike. H2R track only (but too loud for the track so not sure where you can ride it.)
