If you’re chasing the benchmark ride in Supersport performance – stop looking. Yamaha’s iconic R6 is the most advanced production 600cc motorcycle Yamaha has ever built. The ﬁrst production motorcycle with a ﬂy-by-wire throttle system, the R6 features the same Yamaha Chip Controlled Intake as on the R1, to vary intake tract length for excellent cylinder filling and a broader powerband… benefits even more pronounced on the higher-revving R6.
A back torque-limiting slipper clutch also greatly enhances braking and downshifting from high speed and complements the highly developed and mass centralised chassis and geometry combination for superlative trackday manners. And because life also exists away from the ripple strip, you’ll find the R6 just as immaculately behaved when the adrenalin and the rpm are riding lower in the gauge.
YCCI - Yamaha Chip Controlled Intake instantly switches the funnel length for super-responsive, smooth, instantaneous power delivery.
Multifunction digital and analogue instruments clearly display all the vital signs and features a lap timer operated by right handlebar switch.
Deltabox aluminium frame incorporates GPinspired engine positioning and rigidity for the ultimate in 600-class handling.
Midship titanium muffler contributes to mass centralisation and contains EXUP for a broad powerband, spot-on injection and emissions compliance.
Fork height adjustability and rear ride-height adjustment accommodates a great range of riders, and tyres.
