What Is It?

The Yamaha XJ600 is a mid-range semi-faired bike and is powered by an air-cooled forward inclined 598 cc inline four engine, producing 61 bhp at 8,500 rpm and maximum torque at 7,000 rpm.

Features include:

  • Steel tubular frame
  • Dual 320 mm discs up front with single piston calipers
  • 245 mm disc at the rear with single piston caliper

  • Shock with pre-load adjustment and 110 mm travel

It's available as the naked XJ600N and the more common semi-faired XJ600S, but the fairing adds 3 kg to the weight. The 3-spoke 17" front wheel takes a 110/80 tyre and the rear 18" a 130/70.

Colours: Red, green, blue, yellow

1998: Front calipers are now two piston and the gearbox is now a 6 speed design.
