The new 2010 Yamaha R6 and Stats Functions

The new, longer-100mm damper designed for excellent noise characteristics and lower power.
The ECU settings revised for better performance.
The 2009 Daytona 200 winner is back and ready for street or track.
Light, powerful and bristling with knowledge gained from years of racing, the YZF-R6 is the most advanced production 600cc motorcycle Yamaha-or anyone else has ever built.
The YZF-R6 was the first production motorcycle with a fly-by-wire throttle system for flawless response under all circumstances.
® YCC-I, Yamaha Chip Controlled Intake, is used on the R6 to vary intake tract length for excellent cylinder filling and a broader power band. At the higher revving R6, its benefits are even more pronounced.
Back torque-limiting slipper-type clutch greatly facilitates braking / downshifting from high speed. Close-ratio 6-speed transmission delivers seamless power and maximum acceleration.
Compact, lightweight 67mm x 42.5mm, 599cc DOHC 16-valve, liquid cooled titanium-valve four-cylinder has a compression ratio of 13.1:1 for the great response. Domed pistons with valve cutouts to produce a compact combustion chamber.
Fuel injection mapping for the YCC-T Yamaha Chip Controlled Throttle dual-injector system complements the high compression ratio for great throttle response and reduced engine braking.
YCC-I Yamaha Chip-Controlled Intake electronically varies intake tract length for a wider power band.
A magnesium subframe removes weight from the rear of the motorcycle for increased mass centralization.
Fork height adjustability and rear ride-height adjustable supports a wide range of riders and tires.
YCC-T uses a powerful ECU and multiple sensors to provide perfect, smooth engine response and optimal power whenever the throttle is twisted under all conditions.
Twin-injector fuel injection: shower-type injectors above each intake funnel help an optimum fuel atomization at high rpm.
Slipper-type back torque-limiting clutch greatly facilitates braking and downshifting from high speed. Close-ratio six-speed transmission delivers seamless power and maximum acceleration.
GP-style titanium exhaust contributes to mass centralization and contains EXUP ® for a wide power band, and 02-sensor for spot-on injection and emissions compliance.
Linerless, direct-plated ceramic-composite cylinder bores mean greater heat dissipation for consistent power delivery and reduced friction.
Cool magnesium valve and engine are light and stylish.
Direct ignition coils, dual-electrode spark plugs and high-output magneto deliver extremely accurate, reliable firing.
Deltabox ® aluminum frame contains GP thinking in terms of engine positioning and rigidity for the ultimate 600-class handling.
The lightweight swingarm pivots high in the frame, for increased anti-squat effect and mid-corner stability. TZ-type chain adjusters ease rear tire changes.
Four-way adjustable (preload, high-speed compression, low-speed compression and rebound damping) inverted fork with 41mm tubes increases freedom in setting up for street or track use, enjoy the bumps and resist bottoming when brakes.
Four-way adjustable (preload, high-speed compression, low speed compression and rebound damping) piggyback damper delivers exceptional rear wheel tracking and stability.
Dual 310mm front disc brakes use forged one-piece radial-mount calipers and radial-pump front master cylinder with adjustable lever for astounding braking power and feel.
The casting technique for the five-spoke 17-inch wheels makes the rims light and strong, not to mention wickedly cool-looking.
Removable spacer damper and ride height adjustable fork rider can tailor the ride position for the best fit and comfort.
Built-in lap timer is controlled by a right handlebar switch.
Multifunction digital and analog instrumentation features: programmable shift light, digital speedometer, analog tachometer, dual trip meters with miles on reserve function, odometer, water temp and lighting for measuring neutral, high beam, low fuel and turn signals.
