At the heart of the XJ6, there’s a powerful 600cc inline 4-cylinder engine that develops super-smooth performance. Whether you’re riding around town or enjoying a blast on the open road, this rapid and reliable engine delivers plenty of useable power. And with a lightweight 4-into-1 exhaust and midship muffler, it looks as good as it sounds.

Agile handling performance

One of the most significant features on the XJ6 is its compact tubular chassis, which helps to minimise the bike’s overall weight and dimensions for agile roadholding. And the low seat height of just 785 mm allows riders to get their feet on the ground with ease for improved low-speed manoeuvrability.

Special colour

The XJ6 is already one of the most stylish naked bikes in the popular 600 class – and with its cool new black/grey colour scheme this outstanding all-rounder looks so good from any angle. Running with special carbon-look frame guards and tank panels – as well as jet black wheels and a bold number 6 logo on the sidepanels – the SP model is the ultimate XJ6.

Durable and stylish storage

And for added security, there’s a U-lock storage space under the seat.

Racing-style instrumentation

The XJ6’s racing-style instrument console features an easy-to-read analogue tachometer on the right, and a multi-function digital display—which includes a speedometer—on the left. And for added visibility at night, the console benefits from white LED backlighting and a luminous white tachometer needle.
