Ben Spies replica R1 from UK dealer, CMC
For those who think a Rossi-rep R1 might be too common, CMC, a Yamaha dealer in the UK, has readied a Ben Spies replica R1. The bike is painted in Ben’s World Superbikes colours and the exhaust system gets Akrapovic carbon end cans. The bike costs £12,499 OTR.
Spies and Rossi replica R1s are all fine but what we’d really love to see from Yamaha is a series of limited-edition 1980s specials – Kenny Roberts, Eddie Lawson and Wayne Rainey replica Yamaha R1s. Now that would be something!
