In such a rapidly industry, manufacturers do even the to keep up the pace with or to become benchmark themselves. especially in the super sport that often implies a model even though the hasn’t had enough of it. That is what happened with the R6, but this manufacturer made that it offers complete for its customers and so the YZF-R6S appeared.



As the whole is to have a “previous generation in their lineup, Yamaha the YZF-R6S virtually unchanged for Satisfying the same commuting every day of the week and being of making a damn good on the track on weekends, this begs us to unveil some of its indeed unchanged, but unique

Behind that powerful feel is the 600cc liquid-cooled, 16-valve inline four-cylinder Devel oping 123 horsepower, the is compact and uses one-piece and crankcase assembly for superior rigidity and light weight. the cylinder bores are made out of

This reduces friction, power at high rpm levels and us that this bike lost the magic touch of the R6.

Further proving that is the frame, 43mm fork and swingarm. Also, with 17-inch wheels and performance systems on them, there’s no the YZF-R6S keeps on going and ever.


1999 is the year Yamaha decided to powerfully Honda, Suzuki and Kawasaki in the class as an expected effect of year’s launch, the one of the mighty R1. the all-new (for the time)

At its base was the FZR600 engine, a carbureted, liquid-cooled inline-four after carrying on the R6 was developing 120 at 13,000 rpm and 68 Nm at 11,500 rpm. The frame also carried on and it was a big just like all through the Color scheme was Blue and

Two years after the bike’s nothing more but a refreshed look was new on this sports

In 2003, Yamaha brought technical upgrades to the already engine, the most important the fuel-injection system. Now the bike really make a point in the class. Color combination was Red and

Colors continued to add up for the fuel-injected R6 Black) which by this developed 123 hp at 13,000 and 68.5 Nm at rpm.

2005 is a very year in this discussion, not because the horsepower increases and the getting new forks, but because is the base of the “S” model was to be launched in 2007. Why didn’t carried on producing the bike as it Because of the same reasons I when starting writing article.

In 2006, the all-new R6 rushed on the in the colors of the first R1 and its first revision came in 2008.

Because Yamaha provides the as an alternative for those fierce such as the Honda CBR600RR, GSX-R600 and Kawasaki ZX-6R, is no room for the R6S to make a point so we’ll have to comply the 2008 Kawasaki ZZR600.

A bike, this Kawi is a suitable opponent as it features a liquid-cooled inline-four engine. The disadvantage is that being fed a Mikuni BDSR 36R, the ZZR as potent as the R6S, but indeed the appropriate thing you’ll to it.

Also, the riding position on the is not as sporty as on the Yamaha, and that affect the handling performance as you normally tend to believe. So if searching for a docile middleweight, should be it, with the condition of not bored of it too fast.


The purpose of the R6S is to not be caught by the radical round and remain the apparently designed middleweight motorcycle many secrets underneath clean looking fairing. As you can the bike is a reminder of the 2005 R6 that brought up to date a comfortable cockpit, redesigned and five-spoke rims.

Fuel tank is narrow for ergonomics and more control, but not the you would encounter on THE 2009 YZF-R6. Testimony of the fact the years haven’t left a finger print on it is the four-into-one exiting on the right side of the You rarely see that these and it can also be found on the Kawasaki

Brand new on the 2009 model is the Raven paint and gold Although Yamaha retains the Blue and White coloring for model, it brings a fresh that surely won’t be unnoticed by the public.

Yamaha sells the 2009 R6S as a sportbike and that’s also we have to show that the is or isn’t. So it would have to and always have a reserve of adrenaline close by, the riding should not be fatiguing and yet the thing handle as good as it looks. You it, versatility is the answer and after a full week on it and covering 400 miles, our report is anything, but

For starters, the liquid-cooled inline DOHC, 16 valves middleweight feels free both quietly around town or all of its 123 horses to work. The fuel system has much to do with so although the bike is just a new of an older R6 model, it doesn’t that modern goodies present on it. Fuel injection be the first.

As a commuter, the R6S feels easy to ride and maneuver if you have been putting track days on it. But, at a 410 lb wet and 32.3 inches high I also dare to say that it can be the choice of beginning riders who feel like changing after bike concomitant them gaining experience. … thinking is required playing with the throttle can bring trouble to such

It wouldn’t bother if those who on riding the Yamaha R6S are accustomed sportbike-like riding position this bike makes no there. Considering the riding of the R1 and R6, the one on the “S” tends to seem natural, but still not as comfy as on the or old CBR600F models. Riders only begin to appreciate the on the hands” position once start carving corners, not while they ride to

All aggressive riding throbs be kept for the track and that is where the Yamaha R6S feels at home. The thing accelerates the six-speed gearbox backs the up very well and the chassis an authentic feel of what MotoGP pilots experience races. No wonder as we’re with a Delta box III frame, fork and controlled-fill swingarm.

Front and rear suspensions are adjustable and that also fun on the track and comfort on the streets.

The brakes very sweet sharp corners mostly of the 298mm front brake four-piston calipers and radial cylinder. At the rear there is a disc with a single-piston Great stopping power is a good thing to have and lap lap, the R6 character will more and more for each possessor.

Like on most models, wind protection is and the rider has just enough to fit its head under the windscreen.

But spending some serious weekend time on the track and burning more than a of gas (4.5 gallons), it is pretty to go back on the road and have the attitude towards the bike being introduced to its full In other words, you’ll be the hell out of it and don’t even about the 42 mpg claimed by Yamaha. Or that’s just an excuse for not at fuel consumption when the 2009 Yamaha R6S.


And the best of it is the $8,690 required for the Raven painted one or for the Team Yamaha Blue/White scheme. Is that good or Considering that the cheap of the “evolved” R6 costs $9,990 and the ZZR600 (still a 2008 year), $7,299, I believe in for a winner.


Being yet interpretation of one of the most successful super sport Japanese out there, the R6S doesn’t bring radical on the scene, but will be passed unnoticed, no matter We are still waiting for the day when the R6 another great evolutionary and the R6S would be a mitigated version of it.
