“When what you are deeply passionate about, what you can be best in the world at and what drives your economic engine come together, not only does your work move toward greatness, but so does your life. For, in the end, it is impossible to have a great life unless it is a meaningful life. And it is very difficult to have a meaningful life without meaningful work. Perhaps, then, you might gain that rare tranquility that comes from knowing that you’ve had a hand in creating something of intrinsic excellence that makes a contribution. Indeed, you might even gain that deepest of all satisfactions: knowing that your short time here on this earth has been well spent, and that it mattered.”

US: Entry-level Yamaha R1S due in 2016

Before the new-for-2015 YZF-R1 was even unveiled Yamaha dropped a large hint at its intentions to offer more than one version by filing trademarks on the names YZF-R1 and YZF-R1M.
But it also trademarked a third title, that of YZF-R1S, which so far hasn’t emerged as a production model. Now, however, it’s clear that the R1S is to be part of the firm’s 2016 range, at least in America, where it will be sold as a ‘basic’ version with a lower price and less in terms of technology.
The Information comes via the California Air Research Board, a body that must certify that all bikes to be sold in the state comply with its strict emissions regulations. Yamaha’s 2016 certificates include mentions of the existing R1 and R1M but also the R1S, described in the document as a ‘basic model’. The bike’s name also appears in the American EPA certification lists, showing it will be sold all across America rather than just in California.
Information about the bike is limited, but the documents show its engine tune and weight are unchanged compared to the normal R1, so performance will be just as high. Its ‘base’ nature is therefore sure to show up in lower-spec electronics and perhaps cheaper suspension.
