Zero's latest electric dual sport motorcycle makes its case for space in the garage.
Honda redesigns its Gold Wing from the ground up for 2018
Light, powerful and bristling with knowledge gained from years of racing, the YZF R6 is the most advanced production 600cc motorcycle Yamaha - or anybody else - has ever built.
The YZF-R6 was the first production motorcycle with a fly-by-wire throttle system for flawless response under all conditions.
YCC-I, Yamaha Chip Controlled Intake, is used on the R6 to vary intake tract length for excellent cylinder filling and a broader powerband. On the higher revving R6, its benefits are even more pronounced.
Slipper-type back torque-limiting clutch greatly facilitates braking/downshifting from high speed.
The YZF-R6 achieves fuel economy up to an estimated 40 mpg with a fuel tank that holds 4.6 gallons of gas.Features & Benefits
- New For 2009
The Engine Control Unit (ECU) has remapped YCC-T settings to optimize power output in each gear, to achieve smooth, linear power delivery out of the turn, with excellent overall drivability.
Compact, lightweight 67 x 42.5mm 599cc DOHC 16-valveliquid-cooled titanium-valved four-cylinder has a compression ratio of 13.1:1, for great response. Domed pistons with valve cutouts produce a compact combustion chamber.
Fuel injection mapping for the YCC-T—Yamaha Chip ControlledThrottle dual-injector system complements the high compression ratio for great throttle response and reduced engine braking.
YCC-I—Yamaha Chip Controlled Intake electronically variesintake funnel length for an amazinglyf broad, smooth powerband.
A magnesium subframe removes weight from the rear of themotorcycle for increased mass centralization.
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 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 contains EXUP® for a broad powerband, spot-on injection and emissions compliance.
Linerless, direct-plated ceramic-composite cylinder boresmean greater heat dissipation for consistent power delivery and reduced friction.
Cool magnesium valve and engine covers are light and stylish.
Direct-ignition coils, dual-electrode spark plugs and high-output magneto deliver extremely accurate, reliable firing.
Deltabox aluminum frame incorporates GP thinking in terms of engine positioning and rigidity for the ultimate in 600-class handling.
A die-cast swingarm pivots high in the frame, for increased antisquat 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; soak up the bumps and resist bottoming when braking.
Four-way adjustable (preload, high-speed compression, low-speed compression and rebound damping) piggyback rear shock 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.
