Product Description

Yamaha YZF-R6, a two wheel Japanese demon born on the realm of World Super Sport Racing Program. Even if the 2007 version was a nearly perfect motorcycle, Yamaha decided to improve it even more and we’re glad to notice that the result is nothing short of excellent. A few technical tweaks, some design touches and a slightly increase performance help the YZF-R6 stay in front of the 600 cc pack.

Powered by a compact, light-weight 599cc DOHC 16-valve, liquid-cooled titanium-valved four-cylinder engine mated on a magnesium subframe the new Yamaha YZF-R6 is waiting for you to burn some rubber.
