WTF? 2010 R1 Is a FAT ASS

I have an 04 R1 and its 75 lbs STOCK lighter than the new 2010? What happened to cutting weight in motorcycles. A slipper clutch and some more computer shit is 75 lbs. Why the hell would I want a new one. A few more HP? Shit being abunch lighter the HP is not a match. And its not as good looking! 2010R1---> -<---2004R1

me thinks you got thrown off by the wet weight listed on yamaha's website. 454lbs 2010 wet

traditionally it has always been dry weight listed
dry for the liter bikes is usually listed around 370-390lbs

btw IIRC this generation about 10lbs heavier than the 07

how do you know its the wet weight it is listed by comparison "Dry Weight"? Punch in 2010 r1 le camparo to 04 r1 and see

2010 Yamaha YZF-R1 LE Specifications+Comparison

ok lets say the wet rating is right. A battery weighs 2.2 lbs, oil(4 Quarts) 7.2 lbs, 4.8 gal of gas is 12.9, coolant is 10 pounds. Thats 32.3 pounds. Still not even close. Still 43 lbs heavy!

2010 Yamaha YZF-R1 Specifications, specs, spec

scroll down to wet weight . listed as 454 2010 R1


It appears you have discovered a glitch in their webpage.

I think Yamaha switched to wet weight to throw off the fact that they have gained 10lbs with the new engine design.

when they switched to wet weight the comparo gets set to default
so the number 454 represents wet and it is forced into the dry category .

It was noted by many people that yamaha switched to reporting wet weight , the reason is probably still up for debate. I think they did it to hide their love handles

They are showing a dry weight of 390 lbs for the 09

from 02 through 08 all of the R1's were between 380 - 383 lbs dry.


Ffor the record I removed 11 pounds alone on my 07 just with the exhaust lol it was a heifer on the 07.

When I ordered my titanium Arata exhaust and Power Commander and lifted the box I thought they sent me air because it was so light. I don't know how much weight I saved with the exhaust but I have so say the catalitic converter 7inch peice weighed more than the whole system.

But with the info I posted the 2010 R1 is a FAT Overweight bike. Compared to mine!

It's really only about 12 lbs heavier and the majority of that is the exhaust... the stock system weighs about 24lbs.... while as a replacement ti system about 12.

I'm not a fan of the '09/10 looks or design. It'll probably grow on me in time as the '07 did once I got one. But, IMO, does weight REALLY matter when all you're doing is street riding?

I agree if it's a considerable amount on a street bike. But, when you're talking about 10 pounds, it doesn't make too much difference so long as it's distributed correctly.

ya that's true, 10# on a bike that's already 400 isn't near the difference it is on a bike that's a hair over 200.

Emissions crap adds a lot of weight, lots of bikes have increased in weight in recent years, so that could be some of it too.

2010 LE is a pimp color scheme, but the bike's still ugly
My dealer threw on a set of 2Bros pipes on a blue one and it looks a lot better, but I am still getting used to this chopped off tail craze. Maybe it'll grow on me. The CBR1000 is starting to grow on me a little, especially the Repsol. Anyone seen the '10 CBR's, they have some wild designs coming out
