If you’re chasing the benchmark ride in Supersport performance – stop looking. Yamaha’s iconic R6 is the most advanced production 600cc motorcycle Yamaha has ever built. The ﬁrst production motorcycle with a ﬂy-by-wire throttle system, the R6 features the same Yamaha Chip Controlled Intake as on the R1, to vary intake tract length for excellent cylinder filling and a broader powerband… benefits even more pronounced on the higher-revving R6.
A back torque-limiting slipper clutch also greatly enhances braking and downshifting from high speed and complements the highly developed and mass centralised chassis and geometry combination for superlative trackday manners. And because life also exists away from the ripple strip, you’ll find the R6 just as immaculately behaved when the adrenalin and the rpm are riding lower in the gauge.
