Moto-Spotlight: Yamaha R6

The Yamaha R6 continues to be one of the most popular choices in the 600cc class for good reason. It’s ascetics remain one of the sleekest sportbike designs to date, and underneath Yamaha continues to fine tune every aspect of the R6 from the chassis up. As one of the most technically advanced sport bike on the market, the R6 is an icon of cutting edge design from the track to the street. The Deltabox chassis features a stiffer front end along with stronger swingarm bracing in the back to enhance response under braking. Yamaha introduced YCCT/YCCI chip controlled throttle and variable intake to the market with the R6 in 2006, and has continued to refine these systems into the industry standard for racing level performance. The electronically controlled valves result in extremely precise response at high rpm, capable of responding to speed variation at 1000th of a second. Handling on the R6 has been improved with redesigned suspension internals, allowing for more precise adjustments. The 41mm front suspension features five way adjustable preload, damping, and rebound allowing the R6 to adapt to any condition from the perfect track day to your daily commute. If you are a rider seeking the pinnacle of technical race design, look no further than the Yamaha R6.
