The YZF R6 isn’t a race replica; it’s a racer, developed at racetracks, honed to perfection. For 2006, the R6 is light, powerful and bristling with knowledge gained from years of racing. As a result is one of the most advanced motorcycles ever built by Yamaha. Is also the first production motorcycle with a fly-by-wire throttle system-for flawless response under all conditions.
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.
