2007 Yamaha YZF600R

Posted on by

Good times are not measured in seconds. Interested in a middle-weight sportbike but not going after any Supersport championships? The YZF-600R has amazing performance - in tune with the everyday needs of the real world.

Features


Key Features:
A ram-air-fed 16-valve DOHC powerplant and fully adjustable suspension see to it that the YZF600R gives up very little performance in exchange for its real-world superiority.
A thick, supportive seat for two behind a fairing designed more for weather protection than maximum aerodynamic penetration at full tuck makes the YZF600R a great sport-tourer too.
 
Engine:
Potent 599cc, liquid-cooled, DOHC inline four-cylinder 16-valve powerplant puts out strong, yet street-friendly power perfectly tuned for both aggressive sport riding and everyday commuting.
Durable, lightweight forged pistons help reduce weight for increased throttle response.
Ram-air-style intake below headlight aspirates high-pressure cool air for maximum performance.
Four 36mm Keihin downdraft carburetors ensure crisp, seamless throttle response throughout the rev range.
Close-ratio six-speed transmission provides optimal power delivery to the asphalt with effortless shifting.
4-into-2-into-1 muffler optimizes engine performance while reducing weight and maximizing lean angle with tucked-in positioning.

Chassis/Suspension:
Legendary Deltabox chassis design is a perfect combination of light weight and rigidity for super-precise handling and cornering.
Fully adjustable (preload, compression and rebound damping) 41mm telescopic front fork with 5.1 inches of travel offers race-inspired suspension performance with ultra-precise rider feedback during aggressive riding conditions.
Fully adjustable (preload, compression and rebound damping) remote-reservoir rear shock with 4.7 inches of travel delivers super-precise handling performance and maximum versatility.
Competition-spec brake system features dual 298mm floating front discs with one-piece four-piston calipers and a 245mm rear disc.
Five-position adjustable front brake lever fits a wide range of hand sizes.
Lightweight, cast-alloy, three-spoke 17-inch wheels front and back reduce unsprung weight and support modern radial tires — 120/60-ZR17 front and 160/60-ZR17 rear — for excellent grip and handling.

Additional Features:
Easy-to-reach clip-on bars, a wide, plush seat for two and slightly rear-set footpegs create an ideal ergonomic balance between hard-edged supersport machine and everyday commuter/sport-tourer.
Big, passenger grabrails and multiple, under-tailsection cargo hooks are great for bringing friends and things.
Five-gallon fuel tank provides excellent range and is shaped for aggressive riding.
An easy-to-read analog speedometer, tachometer, odometer, and tripmeter with indicator lights for neutral, high beam, turn signals, low fuel and oil monitor all systems.
Sleek 60/55-watt multi-reflector resin-lens headlight maximizes visibility and enhances aerodynamics.
Standard toolkit located in convenient storage compartment under passenger seat.
