Yamaha XJ6 Diversion: Docile but not sad

11, 2012 | Filed under: | Posted by: Rana Abaidullah

Yamaha complete its range of displacement with the XJ6 and Yamaha XJ6 Back to basics for the brand the tuning fork that has enjoyed success in the 90′s the XJ 600 first name. Diversion and the new has nothing to envy, on the contrary …

XJ6 Diversion: The complete test

Yamaha has a rich range of models, including its line FZ6 is a success for several years, one ask why the brand introduced a new mid-displacement the Yamaha XJ6 Diversion . But on closer one can consider that the FZ6 Fazer ranks as one economic trend sport with its mechanics 100 horses. Thus, if the arrival of a new could not seem a “ strong “ on paper, his interest soon clear we taking the handlebars, in its Naked tried last then in this streamlined Diversion, we offer you this contact in almost direct in Australia, where we have to let go of the of her older sister Yamaha R1

A fairing nicely reported

To the Diversion, Yamaha went the version with which it headlight and instrument panel, time embellished with a Transplant has taken, and rather way. This additional does not “ patch “ and its attachments honest. While the forms “ Manga “ may not appeal to everyone.

However, without showing off noble materials, Yamaha was to make a Diversion motorcycle And it’s not bad for a middleweight! By the turn of the there are differences of colors the Yamaha XJ6 Diversion takes the rims, but abandon as magnesium roadster.

Many subtle in the end.

No need to lift the leg up to on board, the Yamaha XJ6 Diversion goodwill towards templates The saddle at 785 mm from the ground, in the low average for the category. Its small ensures that the highest of put your feet flat on the and even one meter seventy, one can meet the Diversion of a slope.

The on board appears identical to of the Yamaha XJ6 Diversion . According to the proportions have been selected and this is true for use : and small are feeling well on Note that the handlebars can be or decreased by 20 mm by turning the bridges, the is not obvious. Note also the fairing has a generous volume.

It is to leave the center stand as ( optional on the XJ6 ) and slide the transponder key the ignition.

Yamaha XJ6 Diversion: “asset iron”

Reading the sheet does not cause the of special excitement. For his middleweight price of Appeal, Yamaha has to overlook the materials. Frame and rely on steel and brake are limited to two pistons. However, it with a remarkable homogeneity.

During the first few meters in trust prevails immediately. of the floor, nice position, handling, in short, everything you to reassure me at the launch press in land where they on the left. But more than the Diversion seduced. As his sister XJ6. it shows a docile, of joviality. The engine is illustrated by a smooth operation.

Injection transmission, all works smoothly. No at the throttle, just as abruptly or particular when shifting. In area, the Diversion brand big against its congener, the FZ6 Fazer, shows at least dry side gearbox. Then measured work done on the basis of the engine block ( see section “ To “ ) .

Add to that a distinct feel.

at low revs, the four cylinders of meanings to leave on a light at idle on the interim reports ( brilliant third ) . What in the city without all the time the tachometer or worrying about the gear, even if the selection is Note also that the of the fairing did not make “ clumsy “ although it has the same dimensions of the

… appeal aside, the hum of the air box at at low engine speeds brings new like the full sound of the placed at the base of the ears. In minutes of driving, two U-turns and a of stops at traffic lights, no more urban capacity of the In daily use, she is efficient and not

Yet to hit the road.

Simplicity, efficiency

The scrolls along the four A 120 km / h on the clock, it has good protection. No tub if one forward or backward on the saddle, the as the helmet seems spared.

The to pick up the group of other of the testers did not need to stiffen the protection “ guarantees “ to the gait higher. Later, the exchanges professionals from the pen at lunch that protection was appropriate for a range of templates. It’s to head aero glory! the shortened transmission of Diversion may in boring highways.

As the Yamaha XJ6 . the is running at a good 7000 r / min to 130 km / h. We have liked a sixth as “ “ on Diversion. Our little group takes the secondary network in

The appearance of the roads is somewhat of those found in the United And it’s not necessarily a compliment to the … But all the better to appreciate the behavior of the Again, consistency is dominant. The meanings to roll on all types of without giving you the urge to back.

The first kilometer us a winding road, crowded and with passages pins. A mountain course, without the and in the forest. The Diversion then a nice potential. To double the between two curves, just “ “ the handle.

Between 4000 rev / min and 8500 r / the revised engine turns a lot of especially on this type of where the focus is shifting on the 3, 4 and 5. In a suction air box, the four-cylinder you forward to not get stuck. Of course, times do not appear in the relaunch of engine ( in sensations in any case, measures ) . but they are out of proportion to the of nodes Suzuki Bandit 600 generation or first Honda 600

To complete the picture, the Yamaha XJ6 is always intuitive to place. facilitates the task in pins. We go the reports and the front wheel the gaze, without diving or to force the machine.

Neutrality as it

Ride and have fun, … possible

It is undeniable, manufacturers worked hard on this segment of medium displacement. The are mounted in line, like the equipment ( they all have the ABS ) . performance and especially the road Here, one could draw a with the car ( between the Peugeot 205 and 207 ) . There remains the question of and purchasing power, wide-ranging

But back to Yamaha throughout the day, the fairedXJ6 has demonstrated its in accommodating all the way. The rigidity is in the fast sections and “ flights “ spot. The bike does not the tango in large curve. It is “ “ in general behavior, but never the sensation of fuzziness or lack of in the front or rear. In sharp it is always easy to place.

The suspension work together to good discipline and domestic worthy of the name. In terms of over the miles, the seat so strong at first, it will not insurmountable pain, even if a section of highway would to dig the issue. The vibrations also made ​​discrete. Braking, as the XJ6 . is sufficient. To brake with two 211 pounds fully fueled, the decelerate safely.

The … on the lever ( on the first centimeter ) again a sudden nothing to be drawn on said lever to find an effective power. suffers somewhat depending on the and beginners will take the

A cannibal Diversion

Finally, throughout the day, he comes to several thoughts. Versatile, homogeneous, comfortable, not sad for all the new born accomplished frankly. It offers a between comfort / efficiency / far superior to that of its predecessor ( t he time, the reverse would be a ) . In the spirit, as in behavior, it also the first generation of Fazer, also proposed a flexible and behavior and some mechanical

The Yamaha XJ6 Diversion differs the FZ6 Fazer at the rigidity of the chassis and the of its engine. When running out of past the Yamaha XJ6 Diversion rev / min, the FZ6 Fazer continue to very expressive. However, the offers a certification-like than that seems frankly.

Gearbox and engine flexibility at low and mid are much better.

Then for use, it is true that one can “ Why buy an FZ6 Fazer, more expensive (€ and less versatile ? “ Remains than the athletic ability of the have something to appeal to riders.

Sold € 6549 (€ and ABS version), the Yamaha XJ6 Diversion a sensible compromise. Easy to fun to drive, an approval number on all it will be a faithful companion does not cause melancholy, The equipment proved satisfactory, but practical aspects such as the of real under-seat storage a design that is sometimes the look and usability.

For pure approval, we would have as a transmission adapted to the presence of a gear sparing the engine But in the end, we quibble, as the new Yamaha XJ6 combines the qualities.
