Light weight, big horsepower, razor-sharp handling and a comfortable cockpit make the R6S an outstanding do-it-all sportbike.
Competition-bred suction-piston-type fuel injection with 38mm throttle bodies features short intake ports and a special vacuum-controlled intake system to ensure instant throttle response all the way up to the 15,500-rpm redline.
The YZF-R6S achieves fuel economy up to an estimated 42 mpg** with a fuel tank that holds 4.5 gallons of gas.
Large-capacity water pump, liquid-cooled oil cooler and twin ring-type radiator fans ensure optimal engine cooling efficiency.
Four-into-two-into-one aluminum exhaust optimizes engine performance, reduces overall weight and tucks in high for maximum lean angle.
Light and carefully tuned Deltabox III frame and Controlled-Fill swingarm are key to the R6S’s class-leading handling performance and feel.
Fully adjustable 43mm fork reinforces R6S’s main strength: precise handling. Forged lower triple clamp also increases rigidity.
Fully adjustable (preload, compression and rebound damping) piggyback rear shock with 4.7 inches of travel delivers exceptional rear wheel tracking and stability.
Removable CF die cast rear subframe is light and strong.
Super-light five-spoke 17-inch wheels reduce unsprung weight; a special casting technique makes the rim section light, not to mention wickedly cool-looking.
Light, 298mm front brake discs, four-piston calipers and radial master cylinder provide unsurpassed braking power and feel.
