Without a doubt the R6 is the 600cc class sportbike to have.
- The Ultimate 600cc Supersport Platform
Light, powerful, and equipped with the features and technology gained from winning multiple Supersport racing championships, the YZF-R6 is the most advanced production 600cc motorcycle Yamaha—or anybody else—has ever built.
- Advanced Ride-by-Wire Control
The YZF-R6 was the first production motorcycle with YCC-T®, Yamaha Chip Controlled Throttle system, for flawless response under all conditions.
- Variable Length Intake System
YCC-I®, Yamaha Chip Controlled Intake, is used on the R6 to vary intake tract length for excellent cylinder filling and a broader powerband.
- Racing-derived Slipper Clutch and Transmission
Back torque-limiting slipper-type clutch greatly facilitates braking/downshifting from high speed. Close-ratio 6-speed transmission delivers seamless power and maximum acceleration.
- Legendary Racetrack Success
The Yamaha YZF-R6 has won more AMA middleweight races and championships than any other 600cc sportbike.
