    Yosh pipes on modern Yamahas look all sorts of cheesy.

    Why the disappointment? I believe Yamaha has enough confidence in the Advics monoblock calipers to have them on the YZF R1 and YZF R1M. Only reason for the level of Brembos that would be put on a sub-$10,000 model would be for the name only.
