Next generation R-Series design

Developed using next generation R-series design, the new YZF-R6 features an aggressive face featuring hidden recessed headlights and dual LED position lights that give a radical new look.

Increased aerodynamic efficiency

We’ve taken the bike that’s won three World Supersport titles in recent years, and made it even more efficient by reducing drag. Developed from the proven YZF-R1 design, the dynamic looking front cowl and redesigned screen underline the strong R-series DNA and contribute towards an 8% increase in aerodynamic efficiency.

High tech electronic control systems

Featuring a wide range of high-tech electronic systems, the YZF-R6 is the most sophisticated 600 supersport bike we’ve ever created. Equipped with a 6-position Traction Control System (TCS) as well as a Quick Shifter System (QSS) for clutchless upshifting, and D-Mode adjustable engine power, the YZF-R6 gives you ultimate control.

YZF-R1 type front forks

From the day that we launched the first R6, this extreme supersport has continued to set the standards for handling agility and lightweight controllability. To ensure that the R6 continues to lead the field we’ve fitted fully adjustable YZF-R1 type 43mm forks with R6 specific settings that deliver excellent handling performance on the street or track

Enhanced riding position

Your body position – and the ability to shift weight quickly and easily – is one of the most influential factors in achieving ultimate handling performance. So we’ve redesigned the seat, subframe and fuel tank to create an enhanced riding position that enables you to move freely about the bike when braking, accelerating or cornering.

Magnesium subframe

Manufactured from CF die cast magnesium, the newly designed rear subframe contributes towards the bike’s light weight – and is 20mm narrower at its front end to accommodate a slimmer seat. By allowing you to mould your body more closely to the chassis, this design improves controllability and contributes towards the improved aerodynamics.

YZF-R1 specification front brakes

To match the bike’s new 43mm front forks we’ve fitted dual 320mm discs that are gripped by radial mount 4-pot opposed piston calipers. Built to the same specification as the system on the YZF-R1, this advanced class leading design gives outstanding stopping power – while the ABS gives you improved control in all conditions.

New lightweight aluminium fuel tank

The R6 is fitted with a lightweight aluminium fuel tank that has been sculpted to give you greater freedom to shift your bodyweight and achieve the best riding position. Featuring deep knee recesses that allow you to tuck in tightly, this beautifully finished handcrafted 17-litre fuel tank highlights the motorcycle’s premium specification
