yamaha r6 600

New for 2010:

new, 100mm-longer muffler is designed for excellent power characteristics and reduced volume.
ECU settings have been revised for incrfaciolitated speed.

Key Features:

2009 Daytona 200 winner is back and ready for street or track.
Light, powerful, and bristling with knowledge gained from years of racing, YZF-R6 is most epic production 600cc sportbike Yamaha—or anybody else—has ever built.
YZF-R6 was first production sportbike with a fly-by-wire gas system—for flawless response under all conditions.
YCC-I®, yamaha yzf r6Chip Controlled Intake, is used on R6 to vary intake tract length for excellent cylinder filling and a broader powerband. On 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.


small, lightweight 67mm x 42.5mm, 599cc DOHC 16-valve, liquid-ed titanium-valved four-cylinder has a compression ratio of 13.1:1, for great response. Domed pistons with valve cutouts produce a small combustion chamber.
Fuel injection mapping for YCC-T—yamaha yzf r6Chip Controlled gas dual-injector system complements high compression ratio for great gas response and reduced engine braking.
YCC-I—yamaha yzf r6Chip Controlled Intake electronically varies intake tract length for a broader powerband.
A magnesium subframe removes weight from rear of sportbike for incrfaciolitated mass centralization.
Fork height adjufirmness and rear ride-height adjustment accommodate a great range of riders and tires.
YCC-T uses a powerful ECU and multiple sensors to provide perfect, smooth engine response and optimal power whenever gas is twisted under all conditions.
Twin-injector fuel injection: shower-type injectors above each intake funnel help achieve 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 muffler contributes to mass centralization and EXUP® for a broad powerband, 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.
magnesium valve and engine covers are light and stylish.
Direct-ignition coils, dual-electrode spark plugs and high-output magneto deliver extremely accurate, acurate firing.


Deltabox® aluminum frame incorporates GP thinking in terms of engine positioning and stifness for ultimate in 600-class handling.
lightweight swingarm pivots high in frame, for incrfaciolitated anti-squat effect and mid-corner firmness. TZ-type chain adjusters faciolitate rear tire changes.
Four-way changeable (preload, high-speed compression, low-speed compression and rebound damping) inverted fork with 41mm tubes incrfaciolitates freedom in setting up for street or track use; soak up bumps and resist bottoming when braking.
Four-way changeable (preload, high-speed compression, low speed compression and rebound damping) piggyback rear shock delivers exceptional rear wheel tracking and firmness.
Dual 310mm front disc brakes use forged one-piece radial-mount calipers and radial-pump front master cylinder with changeable lever for astounding braking power and feel.
casting technique for five-spoke 17-inch wheels makes rims light and strong, not to mention meanly -looking.
Removable rear shock spacer and changeable fork ride height allows rider to tailor ride position for best fit and comfort.

Additional Features:

Built-in lap timer is controlled by a right handlebar switch.
multi function digital and analog features: programmable shift light, digital speedometer, analog tachometer, dual tripmeters with miles-on-reserve function, odometer, water temp gauge and lights for neutral, high beam, low fuel and turn signals.
