Yamaha YZF-R6

Pros / Cons

  • Excellent performance without litre insurance, cornering speed, handling
  • Finish quality

What Is It?

Power is provided by a liquid cooled 600cc parallel 4 cylinder engine, producing 124.3bhp at 13,000rpm and maximum torque at 13,000rpm. The engine is a stressed member of the frame.

Features include:

  • Aluminium die-cast Deltabox III frame
  • Dual 298mm discs up front with monobloc 2 piston calipers
  • 220mm disc at the rear with single piston caliper
  • Adjustable 41mm upside down fork with 120mm travel
  • Adjustable rear shock with 120mm travel
  • 4->2->1 Aluminium exhaust system
  • Aluminium clip-on bars
  • Programmable shift light
  • LED tail light
  • 6 speed gearbox

Compared to the previous generation the engine performs better at high revs, 2mm larger injection bodies for more tuning potential and optimised air funnels. The front brake discs are 12mm larger and the front tyre is slightly larger; the 5-spoke 17" wheels take a 120/70 tyre at the front and 180/55 at the rear.

2005 saw Yamaha increase the power by 3bhp with a revised engine map and larger throttle bodies. They also switched to an upside down 12mm Kayaba fork and bought over the larger 310mm discs with radial calipers from the YZF-R1.

  • 2004: red/white, blue/white, grey/white
  • 2005: red/white, blue/white, black, yellow R46 special
