Yamaha YZF-R6



From a claimed to be “the most production 600cc motorcycle anybody elsehas ever riders are right to expect performance achieved with features. And the fact is that the DOHC 16-valve, liquid-cooled four-cylinder engine is both and high-revving mainly thanks to the x 42.5mm bore and …, translates into a 13.1:1 ratio and implicit satisfying response.

But is that enough to this engine into the provider that riders so much about? Certainly The interesting part consists in the of systems such as the Yamaha Controlled Intake (YCC-I) and Chip Controlled Throttle which turn throttle into excellent across the wide powerband.

Yamaha’s throttle system also has to do with the fact that will barely twist the and the exhaust gasses will go out the now 100mm longer muffler, is claimed not to affect engine while significantly reducing noise and making the new R6 more relaxing during long How’s that for enjoying the of 131 hp at 14,500 rpm and 68 Nm at 6,930 rpm in a more manner?

Yamaha does increased performance as a result of ECU settings, but they don’t about figures, so we reckon it all to an even more linear delivery.

The chassis remains the proven track performer from an aluminum Deltabox four-way adjustable suspension and 17-inch aluminum wheels. on this bike is designed, and fitted with mass in mind, including the new titanium

In 2010, the color schemes of the YZF-R6 are different, but you’ll a trained eye to set it apart from the bike. We’ll get to that in a



Japanese manufacturers have all announced 2010 lineups and there any surprise in the supersport middleweight as the year that follows is by caution regardless of maker. So the Honda CBR600RR gets color schemes and graphics, performance and weight figures the same.

Still, the C-ABS should turn into a challenger for the R6, at least on the track, Honda’s innovative system riders to approach corners faster than any of its contenders. The GSX-R600 and Kawasaki Ninja get new, much more colors, but remain technically which lets us think next year we will be about entirely new Japanese especially if the economy starts its wheels more rapidly.

Meanwhile, we’ll just to comply with talking some new color schemes of completely redesigned fairings, reduce the drag coefficient and riders greater wind

The thing is that with the Yamaha R6 we can’t even do (at least not totally) because we are with the Team Yamaha Raven and Pearl White as these are also found on the model year, but have rethought and we guess they slightly different after

The Pearl White and Raven look much simpler, much like a racing which didn’t yet got its sponsorship and number, while the Team Blue/White gets, obviously, where you would have black on the previous model on the half of the fairing. The graphics are new and simpler, but we kind of miss the Orange/Raven color combination. We that Yamaha got rid of it in an attempt to set the R6 apart from the Red/Black Honda CBR600RR C-ABS, we also like very

One thing that Yamaha improve both on the R1 and the R6 is the riding with an almost horizontal just like on the competition That would offer the possibility to enjoy more on this impressive middleweight a small sacrifice on the bike’s design, not to mention how passengers be infinitely grateful with the

The aspect of the performance most appreciated is the engine’s flawless throttle I experienced none of the digital-feeling common among many systems, either while back on the throttle or while it when slowing for corners.
