Yamaha XJ6 ABS
This funky, naked version of the XJ6 Diversion is pure Yamaha spirit with serious street attitude. Its compact chassis enables easy handling, while the 600cc liquid-cooled, 4-stroke inline 4-cylinder engine delivers good bottom power with plenty of acceleration.
Its low-seat height and low weight help to create a road-hugging, streamlined machine, and the XJ6/ABS’s four-into-one exhaust with midship muffler centralizes mass for enhanced agility.
Digital fuel injection and a three-way catalyzer, with O2 sensor, enable improved fuel consumption, while the adjustable handlebars complete the perfect picture.
Yamaha motorcycles never compromise on quality, and this is reflected in the design and performance of the XJ Series. When you’re comfortable on a motorcycle, that’s when you have fun. Whether leisure riding or commuting that’s what the XJ Series will mean: real riding pleasure.

This combination of cutting-edge technology and attention to detail is paramount to the XJ Series and creates the confidence every rider should experience.
At the heart of the XJ6/ABS lies a 600cc, 4-stroke, 4-cylinder engine that serves up a journey packed with fun but that’s light on your pocket, too, while digital fuel-injection technology and a three-way catalyser with O2 sensor lower emissions.
A four-into-one exhaust with a midship muffler contributes to centralise the mass of the XJ6/ABS and delivers enhanced agility, while a lightweight tubular diamond-type frame and 41 mm front forks, and monocross rear suspension, take road-hugging to the max.

Roadrecord ---- "The XJ6 gets Yamaha’s YZF-R6 engine, but detuned for better low- and mid-range power. This is exactly what you need for whizzing about town and on our stop-start roads; the lack of fairing to protect from windblast makes top speeds redundant anyway"
