When Yamaha's engineers in Japan were developing the first R1 superbike back in 1998, they had visions of world superbike glory in their sights. They probably didn't envisage a crazy man attaching flat bars and knobbly tyres to one and tearing it apart off road.

As it happens the R1 seems to make a decent 'crosser. What it lacks in finesse and agility, it more than makes up for in power.
