Refined. Redesigned. Remarkable.
The YZF-R6 is a legend on the street – and with 3 Supersport World titles in recent years it’s also a proven winner on the race track. One ride on this MotoGP-bred racer and you enter the exciting world of Yamaha.
Featuring low-drag bodywork and an aggressive look that bears all the characteristics of Yamaha’s thoroughbred R-series DNA, the new YZF-R6 has arrived.
And to give you the ability to push even harder, the new YZF-R6 comes with a 6-mode Traction Control System, as well as a Quick Shifter System (QSS) and ABS.
AVAILABLE IN THE FOLLOWING COLOURS
We’ve taken the bike that’s won three World Supersport titles in recent years and made it even more efficient by reducing drag. Developed from the proven YZF-R1 design, the dynamic looking front cowl and redesigned screen underline the strong R-series DNA and contribute towards an 8% increase in aerodynamic efficiency.
Developed using next generation R-series design, YZF-R6 features an aggressive face featuring hidden recessed headlights and dual LED position lights that give a radical look. With its sharp bodywork and flowing horizontal lines, this 600 supersport has pure race bred R-series DNA running through its veins.
Featuring a wide range of high-tech electronic systems, the YZF-R6 is the most sophisticated 600 supersport bike we’ve ever created. Equipped with a 6-position Traction Control System (TCS) as well as a Quick Shifter System (QSS) for clutchless upshifting, and D-Mode adjustable engine power, the YZF-R6 gives you ultimate control.
From the day that we launched the first R6, this extreme supersport has continued to set the standards for handling agility and lightweight controllability. To ensure that the R6 continues to lead the field we've fitted fully adjustable YZF-R1 type 43mm forks with R6 specific settings that deliver excellent handling performance on the street or track.
Your body position - and the ability to shift weight quickly and easily - is one of the most influential factors in achieving ultimate handling performance. The seat, subframe and fuel tank are designed to create an enhanced riding position that enables you to move freely about the bike when braking, accelerating or cornering.
Manufactured from CF die cast magnesium, the rear subframe contributes towards the bike’s light weight - and is 20 mm narrower at its front end to accommodate a slimmer seat. By allowing you to mould your body more closely to the chassis, this design improves controllability and contributes towards the improved aerodynamics.
To match the bike’s 43 mm front forks, we’ve fitted dual 320 mm discs that are gripped by radial mount 4-pot opposed piston callipers. Built to the same specification as the system on the YZF-R1, this advanced class leading design gives outstanding stopping power – while the ABS gives you improved control in all conditions.
The R6 is fitted with a lightweight aluminium fuel tank that has been sculpted to give you greater freedom to shift your bodyweight and achieve the best riding position. Featuring deep knee recesses that allow you to tuck in tightly, this beautifully finished handcrafted 17-litre fuel tank highlights the motorcycle's premium specification
With its addictive high-pitched scream and instant throttle response, the 599cc, inline 4-cylinder, 4-valve, DOHC engine makes the YZF-R6 one of the most adrenaline-charged rides you’ll ever experience. With its advanced chip-controlled throttle and adjustable intake, this high-tech engine delivers optimum performance.
