Yamaha YZF-R6...

Refined, Redesigned, Remarkable....

What we say…

Needs no introduction from us. The YZF-R6 is a legend!

On the street and with 3 Supersport World titles in recent years also on the race track. One ride on this MotoGP-bred racer and you enter the exciting world of Yamaha.

Featuring newly developed 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.


Next generation R-Series design

Developed using next generation R-series design, the new YZF-R6 features an aggressive face featuring hidden recessed headlights and dual LED position lights that give a radical new look. With its sharp bodywork and flowing horizontal lines, this 600 supersport has pure race bred R-series DNA running through its veins.


Increased aerodynamic efficiency

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.


High tech electronic control systems

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 clutch less upshifting, and D-Mode adjustable engine power, the YZF-R6 gives you ultimate control.


YZF-R1 type front forks

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.


Enhanced riding position

Your body position - and the ability to shift weight quickly and easily - is one of the most influential factors in achieving ultimate handling performance. So we’ve redesigned the seat, subframe and fuel tank to create an enhanced riding position that enables you to move freely about the bike when braking, accelerating or cornering.


Magnesium subframe

Manufactured from CF die cast magnesium, the newly designed rear subframe contributes towards the bike’s light weight - and is 20mm 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.

What Yamaha says…

With its advanced technology and aerodynamic body, the new YZF-R6 takes 600 supersport design
to a new extreme.

Featuring hidden headlights and predatory LED position lights, the aggressive face underlines the bike’s pure R-series DNA. Its beautifully styled aluminium fuel tank and magnesium subframe reduce weight and give a more proactive riding position - while the YZF-R1 type front forks combined with a new rear shock and dual front discs give sharper handling and stronger braking. Finally, to give you the ability 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

Yamaha’s R6 has long been seen as the purest middleweight replica despite its many incarnations since its appearance in 1991.
