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 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.

2018-R6-FEATURE-001

Next generation R-Series design

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

2018-R6-FEATURE-002

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.

2018-R6-FEATURE-003

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.

2018-R6-FEATURE-004

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.

2018-R6-FEATURE-005

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. The seat, sub frame 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.

2018-R6-FEATURE-006

Magnesium subframe

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.

What Yamaha says…

With its advanced technology and aerodynamic body, 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.

To give you the ability push even harder,the YZF-R6 comes with a 6-mode Traction Control System, as well as a Quick Shift System (QSS) and ABS.
