The Yamaha ZJR6 Diversion was especially designed for those who love to mix high speeds with two wheels.

It is powered by a liquid cooled, 4 stroke, DOHC, forward inclined parallel 4 cylinder, 4 valves engine with a displacement of 600 cc. The unit is mated on a constant mesh six speed transmission and generates a maximum power of 57.0 KW (77.5PS) at 10,000 rpm and 59.7 Nm (6.1 Kg-M) of torque at 8,000 rpm.

The engine is housed by a tubular frame which is paired with 41 mm front forks and the company’s modern monocross rear suspension system.

Once on board the rider is greeted by a racing-style instrument console which features an easy-to-read analogue tachometer on the right, and a multi-function digital display.

The Yamaha XJ6 Diversion can be yours for no less than €8.165.
