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.
In the 1970s, sport riders were modifying their street bikes with some of what they saw being used on the racetrack, including clip-on handlebars, rear set footpegs, and ‘fast’ colours. This was done just as much for the look as for increased performance. The Café Racer style was born.
