2012 YZF-R6 Review

Confidence, performance. maximum excitement for fun.

The 2012 Yamaha R6 was on the racetrack. It’s MotoGP technology is tuned to give you the of outstanding engine and chassis usually reserved for professional The 2012 Yamaha YZF-R6 is of innovations and technology, you just find on the competitor’s machinery.

The R6 is a of Yamaha’s latest sport technologies.

From the YCC-T fly by throttle to the MotoGP inspired frame design, to Yamaha’s electronically variable intake to a fully adjustable suspension the R6 is designed to take super riding to a whole new level.

and technology you won-t find on any middleweight Supersport. middleweight

The 2012 Yamaha R6 is designed to do one extremely well: get around a track in minimal time. Oh It’s an incredible street too. The 2012 WorldGP Edition celebrates Yamaha’s heritage with Pearl Red livery.

It includes a 50th emblem on top of the fuel tank and a numbered plate showing the number of only 1500 that will be produced

2012 Yamaha YZF-R6 and Key Features:

Fuel Consumption 17kpl/48mpg(Imp)

Yamaha Chip Throttle (YCC-T)

Optimized frame design

Key Features:

GP 50th Anniversary Edition Yamaha-s racing heritage Pearl White/Rapid Red livery. a 50th Anniversary emblem on top of the tank and a special numbered showing the production number of 1500 units that be produced worldwide in these colors.

-Light, powerful, and with knowledge gained years of racing, the YZF-R6 is the advanced production 600cc Yamaha-or anybody else-has built.

-The YZF-R6 was the production motorcycle with Yamaha Chip Controlled system-for flawless response all conditions.

-YCC-I®, Yamaha Chip Intake, is used on the R6 to vary tract length for excellent filling and a broader powerband.

torque-limiting slipper-type clutch facilitates braking/downshifting from speed. Close-ratio 6-speed delivers seamless power and acceleration.

2012 Yamaha Features and Benefits


lightweight, short …, DOHC, 16-valve, liquid-cooled, four-cylinder with lightweight valves produces incredible Redline is set at an amazing 16,000rpm.

pent roof cylinder design features ultra titanium valves for both and exhaust. The intake valve is 11.5 degrees and the exhaust is degress. The intake valves are in diameter while the exhaust are 23mm.

Single intake springs reduce weight and for optimum high rpm performance. The retainers are made of lightweight

High flow intake and ports allow more in and more exhaust out for great delivery at all rpms.

Lightweight cylinder head cover and covers reduce weight.

cylinder block (the is not part of the upper crankcase) utilizes ceramic composite liner less cylinder The ceramic coating is sprayed on the aluminum block. The benefits are heat dissipation for consistent delivery, reduced frictional loss, reduced oil consumption and there are no heavy liners, weight too.

Lightweight pistons feature thin top for great high rpm power. The are secured by lightweight tapered piston pins. The lightweight means fast engine

Lightweight crankshaft features bearing journals. The inertial mass has been optimized for throttle response and impressive The crank journal bearings special oil holes that the supply of oil for excellent durability.

lift / high performance, side-driven camshafts provide arm power and strong acceleration.

Automatic semi-hydraulic type cam tensioner reduces mechanical and maintenance.

Mikuni fuel system with 41mm bodies features twin (primary secondary). This of twin injector system is found on our MotoGP M1 machine and the generation R1. Each of the injectors 12 spray holes to maximize the process.

The secondary injectors, inside the airbox, begin to at mid rpms (6,000 to 7,000rpm) to redline. Special short tracts allow for higher and improved power.

The F.I. features separate TPS (throttle sensor) and APS (accelerator position sensors.

Yamaha Chip Throttle (YCC-T) is another 1st for This system electronically the throttle valves for outstanding and improved controllability at high The system features Throttle Sensor (TPS) and D.C. driven throttle valves. The system electronically controls the valves for outstanding response and controllability at all rpms.

The YCC-T is to provide even more of the intake air volume for a smoother character. This ECU that the YCC-T is capable of responding to at a speed of 1000th of a second.

or Yamaha’s Chip Controlled system means the intake / stacks vary in length 2 pre-set positions depending on rpms. The transition rpm is approximately rpms. An electronic servo varies the funnels. The revolutionary provides the best of both -solid low rpm torque and power with an amazing high rpm

It takes only 0.3 of a second for the to move from the tall to the position.

Yamaha’s exclusive electric-control servo motor-driven intake funnel system is a 1st on a production motorcycle and works in with Yamaha’s fly-by-wire and FI systems.

7.6 litre air box utilizes a flow viscous paper air filter.

Ram Air Induction System centrally located intake delivers cool, high-pressure air into the intake tract for combustion and greater horsepower at speeds. This design straight induction from the fairing duct to the airbox a lot of bends or turns.

Close ratio 6-speed delivers seamless power and maximum acceleration. Gear splines and engagement dogs been optimized to handle the power. The shift drum and mechanism are located on the right of the cases for smooth shifting under power.

The gears use contact-type engagement dogs for shifting and great durability.

The or stacked transmission design a more compact engine to back that allows for engine placement in the sweet of the frame for optimized weight and incredible handling.

Slipper or limiter clutch assembly rear wheel hop when hard down shifts or hard braking. Key benefit is lap times and smoother control participating in either a race or day. This clutch 9 paper based friction and 8 steel plates, plus 6 clutch springs.

The oil lubrication has been optimized to reduce loses caused by oil drag. It a two side oil pump. There is a liquid-cooled oil cooler to ensure engine temperatures for maximum and extended service life.

capacity cooling system a curved radiator with ring-type fans for excellent cooling efficiency. The ring-type fan more airflow than a type fan.

Direct coils, iridium dual spark plugs and high-output deliver reliable, super spark. With this the ignition coils are integrated the plug caps, significantly weight.

Mid Ship 4-into-2-into-1 maximizes engine performance. The pipe diameter and length been optimized for excellent There are three, 3-way catalyziers with an oxygen in the system to reduce harmful HC CO emissions.

The oxygen sensor feedback to the ECU so it can adjust for the optimum mixture. The mid ship MotoGP lightweight titanium muffler is below the engine to central and lower the center of gravity for handling.

The exhaust system also Yamaha’s EXUP System Ultimate Power Valve) a titanium body and butterfly that prevent the blow phenomenon caused by valve This design reduces and maximizes cornering clearance. The system eliminates flat in the power band and reduces too.

This is a 1st on a 600cc machine.

High powered 32 bit control unit actually three ECUs inside the ECU to control the FI system, the YCC-T and the ignition mapping system.

Air System (AIS) injects air into the exhaust ports to burn any unburnt fuel in to reduce harmful CO HC exhaust
