To help reduce the growing number of dropped, damaged, and destroyed new R1's Yamaha has introduced Training Wheels for its younger riders.
A Yamaha Safety spokesman said:
"Since buying a sportbike is the newest trend for male posers age 18-25, Yamaha feels obligated to do something about the problem we've been having with our sportbikes. How are we to retain our repeat-customer base if they keep dying? We tried seatbelts and airbags in some of our prototypes, but we found that the training wheels worked best to keep the bike upright and our riders safe and happy."
