What Is It?

The Yamaha XJ6 is a mid-range naked bike and is powered by a liquid cooled 600cc inline four engine, producing 78bhp at 10,000rpm and maximum torque at 8,500rpm.

Features include:

  • Steel tubular frame and swingarm
  • Dual 298mm discs up front with Nissin 2 piston calipers
  • 245mm disc at the rear with Nissin single piston caliper
  • 41mm fork with 130mm travel
  • Rear shock with pre-load adjustment and 130mm travel
  • Easy action clutch, 4->1 exhaust system
  • 6 speed gearbox
  • Small under seat storage

The engine is from the FZ6 but de-tuned for improved low down torque at the expense of top end power, while the muffler is short and positioned under the engine for better mass centralisation. The 5-spoke 17" wheels takes a 120/70 tyre and the rear a 160/60.

The XJ6N is the basic naked version and is available in black, white, yellow and red. Moving up the £6,500 semi-faired XJ6S Diversion was wider mirrors and more protection but weighs 6kg more. It's swaps the yellow scheme for blue.

From 2010 the fully faired £6,700 XJ6 Diversion F offers the best protection, has ABS as standard and is another 6kg heavier. It's available in black, white or blue.

Accessories include the Aluminium rear rack, 38 or 50 litre top box, centre stand, chain guard and ABS (£350).

2013: Grippier seat, LED backlit dash, new grab rails and transparent indicators.
