Yamaha YZF-R6 (2008-current)


One ride on the R6 lets you know that this bike was born on the racetrack. Its MotoGP-bred technology is tuned to give you the kind of outstanding engine and chassis performance usually reserved for professional riders.

Its ultra-high-revving short-stroke engine unleashes dazzling power, made even more responsive by the state-of-the-art YCC-I (Yamaha Chip Controlled-Intake) and YCC-T (Yamaha Chip Controlled-Throttle).

Everything about the R6 is geared towards ultimate cornering, and getting rider and machine working as one. The chassis gives you razor sharp, ultra-responsive handling, and adjustable front forks for optimal track performance.
