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.
