One ride on the R6 lets you know that this bike was born on the race track.

Race-developed slipper clutch

The R6 also features a slipper clutch ensuring a smoother downshift & especially for the entry into corners - by absorbing the back torque forces from the rear wheel during downshifting.

Chip Controlled Throttle (YCC-T) from MotoGP

In addition the YCC-T (Yamaha Chip Controlled-Throttle) controls the throttle-valve for instantly responsive and superbly smooth power. The R6's cutting edge electronics include the YCC-I (Yamaha Chip Controlled-Intake), whch electronically adjust the intake tunnels for perfect performance and torque across the rpm range.

Aluminium die-cast Deltabox

The R6's aluminium Deltabox frame and aluminium swingarm provide MotoGP-inspired rigidity balance, for razor-sharp handling and amazing feedback.

Upside-down front forks for racing suspension

The fully adjustable, upside down forks allow for adjustments and precise feedback from the road or the racing circuit and adjustable ride-height allows for individually tailored chassis behavior.

Aerodynamic and aggressive bodywork

The first time you see an R6, you notice its stick minimalism. It's components are concentrated around the bike's centre of gravity, and this radical look underlines the agile performance of this class-leading middleweight. Combine this with mass-forward set up, and you get a motorcycle that appears to be lunging forward out of every corner.

Titanium Muffler with EXUP System

Ride an R6, and you ride a machine of class-leading technology. The EXUP exhaust improves engine effieciency by adjusting exhaust gas flows with a valve that opens and closes according to engine speed.
