Flat track racing is the home of Harley Davidson XR750s, they’re born and bred for it, so what’s this Yamaha R1 doing winning the race? Wade Boyd did just that this past weekend at the Sacramento Mile in one of the heats, and the video below shows some great racing where the R1 just reels in the Harleys on the straights only to be overtaken in the turns until the next straight until finally, well …, just watch the video.
We saw that Ducati flat tracker a little while back and now this, it looks like the flat track landscape may be changing. Maybe we need a new liter bike class. Pretty cool.
Big thanks to Doug for the tip.
I found the photo above on the R1-forum, the bike is, I believe a 2007 R1, but there doesn’t seem to be many photos, just the videos.
Be sure to click below and watch, it’s neat.
