thank you for sharing, this is gold. I have read somewhere (mototech) that Yamaha is going to discontinue the street version of the Yamaha R6 and replace it with a track-only variant. I hope they don't do this as the current R7 is not a worthy replacement for the R6. Also, Yamaha has launched all the updated versions of bikes from the R series and MT but they did not update the R6 for this year. I hope they don't pull the plug on the Yamaha R6.
