– 2002 Yamaha YZF-R6 Review
2002 Yamaha YZF-R6
An adrenal gland is a terrible thing to waste…
“Why is the R6 untouchable?” asked the experts at Motorcyclist magazine while crowning our phenomenal middleweight missile its 2001 600cc Shootout winner. “Because it manages a nearly impossible balancing act with its superb all-around balance.”
Take note of that last word: balance. Which, in the vernacular of today’s hyper-competitive 600cc supersport class, means the ability to go, stop and turn better than everybody else — at both street and racetrack pace.
