NEXT GENERATION R-SERIES DNA
The new low drag front fairing has been developed using some of the key elements from the YZF-R1, and the latest design gives a significant improvement of 8% in aerodynamic efficiency.
Sophisticated Electronic Control Technology
The YZF-R6 was one of the first motorcycles to adopt advanced electronics that ensure precision control, including the Yamaha Chip Controlled Throttle (YCC-T) and Yamaha Chip Controlled Intake (YCC-I).
Slimline Magnesium Rear Subframe
Rider mobility is a key factor in achieving a high level of handling agility and precision, and the YZF-R6 is fitted with a newly designed seat and rear subframe that allow the rider to shift their body weight quickly and easily.
Quick Shift System
The YZF-R6 also comes equipped with a new Quick Shift System (QSS) that gives faster gear changing.
YZF-R1 Type 43mm Front Forks
The YZF-R6 is equipped with new KYB upside down forks from the YZF-R1. This high specification front suspension features large diameter 43mm tubes to give a more planted feel, particularly during braking and cornering.
320mm Diameter YZF-R1 Type Front Brakes
The new YZF-R6 also benefits from the use of a YZF-R1 type radial front brake system that is one of the most advanced systems fitted to any production Yamaha.
Lightweight Aluminium Fuel Tank
Another significant change is the fitment of a beautifully designed fuel tank that offers a number of important advantages over the previous model's design.
