Tamiya is producing a Yamaha YZF-R1M that you can get your hands on for under £40. But try not to get too excited, it’s a 1/12 scale model that you’ve got to build yourself.

Japanese model makers Tamiya unveiled its latest model, a super detailed Yamaha YZF-R1M model, scaled down to 1/12. And from what we can see, it looks fantastic – faithfully reproducing the sharp lines and hi-tech equipment that adorns the iconic 1000cc sport bike, which has been developed using MotoGP technology.


At the minute, we’ve only found it for sale on the Japanese Tamiya site – and from there it’ll set you back 4,320 yen, which is around £30. Of course, you’ll need to account for postage too. For more information, click HERE.
