XJ600N
When you're looking for a motorcycle that offers the right balance of performance, reliability, versatility and value, few machines can match the XJ600N.
-Yamaha

Notes:
MR: The Seca II was Yamaha's entry in the 'bargain motorcycles' sector. When it first came out, its competition was the Kawasaki EX500, the Bandit 400, and the GS500E. It had many advantages over all of them. The motor was based on the Diversion 400 motor used elsewhere in the world. It was put in a full size steel tube frame. The Seca was a stylish motorcycle, and performed very well. It was comfortable, simple to work on, and a decent performer. The two valve per cylinder engine was no technological marvel, but it was reliable and easy to live with. The half fairing did a good job of protecting the rider from the elements. The Seca II was a very well rounded package.

Power in 1992 was 49.1bhp, with torque of 35.4ft/lb's. Wet weight was 450lb's.

UMG Says: Neat attempt at a modern retro with well designed motor that finally moves on from the old XJ series. Lack of outright power's the main complaint but reasonable purchase and running costs. Suspension a bit weak for two-up work, and goes off with age; plus usual caliper rot in winter. Also wheel bearings short-lived. Also Jap market 43hp, 385lb, 400cc version.

IGM Says: If a new Seca II's price is a best buy, then buying an old version of the exact same machine for less should earn the buyer a place in the bargain-hunter's hall of fame. Some models have cheap, tacky stickers marring the clean, elegant lines of the bike, but don't worry - they come off easily.

IGM Says (Best buy, Best first bike): This sporty 600cc four-cylinder bike combines good looks, comfort and great handling with adequate power for even experienced riders, making it not just a great beginner's bike, but a great bike for anyone.
