The YZF-R6 was born on the track to take you to extremes. We used our racing know-how to create a supersport bike that delivers the performance and feel you need to explore new limits. Outstanding features include MotoGP-derived YCC-T for ultra-precise throttle control and aluminium Deltabox frame for intense cornering performance.
