Spotlight: Yamaha R6

First introduced in 98’/99′, the Yamaha R6 took the middleweight world by storm with its high-horsepower engine and aggressive handling. The Japanese inline-four was an instant hit, and 1999 was the year the R6 took the World Supersport crown. One of the first updates came in the year 2001 with a newer fork and fully-adjustable shock. Of course, there were some other minor changes and small updates. The major re-vamp of the R6 followed in 2003 with all new styling highlighted looks and internally receiving fuel injection to have a slightly longer stroke for a full 600cc. With the chassis, the update came an inverted fork, more aggressive steering geometry, and piggyback rear shock. 2006 saw another revision with the new (previous) 599cc engine for higher rpms. Today’s R Series are built with the highest power, lowest weight and unrivaled agility. Everything about the R6 is built towards ultimate cornering for the rider and the machine to work as a single unit in operation. Light on it’s tires but a killer ride for sure.
