    MCN Road Tester Michael Neeves recently tested the all-new 2009 Yamaha R1 in Australia - and he was impressed.

    Neevesy says the new 1000cc R1 engine with crossplane crank gives the engine all the top-end rush of an inline-four, with the low down grunt of a twin.

    For a full review of the new Yamaha R1, including a technical explaination of the bike's radical new engine, pick up this week's copy of MCN, on sale Wednesday 21 January.
