Yamaha YZF-R6S



Yamaha that it would be best to variety with a motorcycle can be fast, sporty, and would provide the much needed in order to become the user-friendly ready to take its rider no mater riding style or The introduction of the R6S was a dream come for many and a proof that knows to keep its customers


After the introduction of the R1 in Yamaha decided that Thundercat was next and they had a good idea where to Using the recipe of the now successful R1, the manufacturer came up with an radical motorcycle in 1999. It a 599cc, liquid-cooled, 4-cylinders engine, six-speed transmission and radical design.

This for the bike to be an instant success and it being produced for next without major change.

In the YZF-R6 saw its first big revision brought a new 600cc, liquid-cooled, forward inclined inline 4 DOHC, 16-valves. Also new on the bike was the fuel injection and the digital DC-CDI ignition This model was produced the year 2005 but as the YZF-R6 its ascendance and received its second big in 2006, Yamaha decided it would be better to keep the model year and name it the R6S.

It began life under its new in 2006 when the awesome R6 was launched in the colors of the first YZF R1.

2007 brought a Candy Red apart from the famous Yamaha Blue but the technical were maintained as Yamaha on developing its favorite R6 (which, by the is brand new for 2008).


If gave any clue, the Honda has only just begun to its legacy in the annals of 600-class It claims to win the fight against the R6S by a Dual Stage Fuel Pro-Link rear suspension, electronic steering damper, and new colors for 2008.

The GSX-R of the class, a product of Suzuki’s Integrated Design approach, is new for 2008. Designed and improved by a of talented engineers working to build a motorcycle that Balanced Performance.

A revised, combination of chassis and engine, with advanced electronics, suspension and radial-mount brakes to not make more power and harder but also to handle with the goal being a lap time around a racetrack. with exciting new styling and lighting and aerodynamics, the GSX-R600 you ignore the lights and mirrors and the that this is also the four-cylinder 600cc motorcycle Suzuki has ever built.

Another strong competitor for the R6S is the Kawasaki ZZR600, a superb performer. The benchmark for well-designed performance, the Kawasaki ZZR600 this status with class-leading comfort and cutting-edge With an excellent overall and dazzling performance, this sportbike feels more to compete with the subject of my as the first two are already fighting the strongly improved 2008 R6.

Yamaha made sure the S version of its R6 would still attractive and capable so it kept the 2005 design almost It looks striking similar, but why an already good think? decided that if the engine, chassis, suspension remain there is no need for them to improve the appearance of the R6S.

The tank is the same and the fairing the same design lines it is more modern and implies curves. These are given by the looking headlights and air admission which form an aggressive announcing how the rider’s face look like after it the bike for a ride. This is the identity of the S because people confuse the R6S with the previous which is strongly-related to it.

Wheels are now five-spoke so the R6S shows it only receives improvements needed. For example, the new wheels weight so this positive was taken in consideration. Another is the four-into-two-into-one aluminum exhaust although looks the same, it weight and increases performance.

take it for granted, it is more it looks like!


Riding the Yamaha YZF-R6S is a blast as the motorcycle offers throttle response and positive in virtually any command given by the I was very happy to be riding motorcycle because I’ve admired how Yamaha kept one of evolution and proved it is still after a few years.

My first on the list was the engine so after it up, I took my time and familiarized the throttle and commands. This is how I noticed the permissive riding given by the narrow fuel and especially positioned handlebar.

on the move I choose to test it in the jungle and the R6S’s high-revving motor didn’t disappoint in any aspect. It provides user-friendly through all the rpm range but racing are always present and ready to the best performance in any given Frankly, I didn’t manage to go than third but that was for the Yamaha to convince me of its acceleration and performance taken right out the circuit.

Changing gears is an absolute and that was a very positive for when I rode it between signs and red lights. It doesn’t wide openings of the throttle changing a gear but maybe was just me keeping my ears for the exhaust sound. I admit I preferred keeping it revved that is what sportbikes are all

Another charming aspect was This machine will you as much as it can. That’s you’ll feel like a on the R6S and the curves will pretty be taken by the sharp-handling Yamaha.

opening the throttle after a curve provides the rider great amounts of adrenaline as the injected engine makes to offer the needed power in any situation.

I was now getting used to motorcycle and I decided that a lane won’t hurt so I headed out of town in order to get the out of the 2008 Yamaha YZF-R6S. town I encountered a completely machine, one with tremendous available on twist of the throttle

I noticed that the racy and oriented engine doesn’t shifting up until around rpm, where redline is and that was my goal: bringing the close to redline in every gear in order to really my point on this bike. I myself far away of the long arm of the law but the R6S going and going forever. 6th in top end brought a TopSpeed of 165 mph and I believe it is more than needed a 600cc motorcycle.

Reducing the was no problem as the reliable braking made stopping more of a play but it is more than mentioning this bike is no motorcycle although it can be user-friendly and easy to accommodate with. The aspect that requires care of is the throttle opening. If you are a kind of guy and you look for a fast and mean of transportation, the Yamaha R6S be it.

Overall, the bike was excellent and it me with the best impressions. riding its bigger brother, the R1, I to underestimate 600’s but this one is an opinion changer.


Yamaha’s do-it-all is sold for an MSRP of $8,299 and gives it another big advantage, you it, affordability. With all the R6S’s affordability was the only one needed to the amazing success and target by Yamaha. With this checked and secure, customers are to buy the new product and the sales numbers best.


My conclusion is if you want it, than you should it no doubt about this. By aggressive styling, powerful with a wide powerband, and a riding position, the Yamaha is one of the best sportbikes out there I wonder why. If you are not convinced, I advise you to take a look at it eventually, twist its throttle.
