    Radical R-series design

    Developed using latest R-series design, the R6 features an aggressive face incorporating hidden recessed headlights and dual LED position lights that reinforce the radical R-series family look. With its sharp bodywork and flowing horizontal lines, Yamaha’s ultimate 600 supersport has pure race-bred DNA running through its veins.

    Aerodynamically efficient bodywork

    The aerodynamically efficient bodywork is one of the key features that’s enabled the R6 to dominate the WorldSSP Championship in recent years. Developed from the proven R-series family design, the dynamic looking front cowl and race-developed screen underline this strong R-series DNA and contribute towards its outstanding performance.

    High-tech electronic control systems

    Featuring a wide range of high-tech electronic systems, the R6 is the most sophisticated 600 supersport bike ever created by Yamaha. Equipped with a 6-position Traction Control System (TCS) as well as a Quick Shifter System (QSS) for clutchless upshifting and D-Mode adjustable engine power, the R6 gives you ultimate control.

    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 this winning 600 continues to lead the field, it’s equipped with fully adjustable R1 type 43mm forks with R6-specific settings that deliver excellent handling performance on the street and track.

    Ergonomic 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. Featuring a slim seat with a low fuel tank and narrow magnesium subframe, the R6’s ergonomic riding position enables you to move freely about the bike when braking, accelerating or cornering.

    Slim magnesium subframe

    Manufactured from CF die cast magnesium, the rear subframe contributes towards the bike’s light weight and enhances mass centralisation – while its narrow dimensions ensure excellent ergonomics. By allowing you to mold your body closely to the chassis, this design gives high levels of controllability and contributes towards aerodynamic efficiency.

    R1 specification front brakes

    To match the high specification 43mm front forks the R6 runs with dual 320mm discs that are gripped by radial mount 4-pot opposed piston calipers. Built to the same specification as the system on the R1, this advanced class leading design gives outstanding stopping power – while the ABS delivers braking control in all conditions.

    Lightweight aluminum fuel tank

    The R6 is fitted with a lightweight aluminum fuel tank that is sculpted to give you plenty of freedom to shift your bodyweight and achieve the best riding position. Featuring deep knee recesses that allow you to tuck in tightly, this beautifully finished handcrafted 17-litre fuel tank highlights the motorcycle's premium specification.
