YZF-R1 specification front brakes
To match the high specification 43mm front forks the YZF-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 YZF-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.
High-tech electronic control systems
Featuring a wide range of high-tech electronic systems, the YZF-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 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 this winning 600 continues to lead the field, it’s equipped with fully adjustable YZF-R1 type 43mm forks with R6-specific settings that deliver excellent handling performance on the street and track.
Radical R-series design
Developed using latest R-series design, the YZF-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 YZF-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.
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 YZF-R6’s ergonomic riding position enables you to move freely about the bike when braking, accelerating or cornering.
