Yamaha is celebrating their 60th anniversary by releasing several of their models in this throwback livery. First, they announced that their 2016 YZF dirtbike line would get the Speed Block livery, and now the 2016 Yamaha R1 is getting the same.

But there’s a catch. For now, the 2016 R1 will only be offered in this gorgeous yellow, white, and black paint scheme in Europe when the bike is released this coming December.

Email your local Congresssman and petition outside your local Yamaha dealership - we have to find a way to bring this bike to our shores. Or just drool a bit on that keyboard while you avoid work some more.
