– 2003 Yamaha YZF-R6 Review
2003 Yamaha YZF-R6
Is it the Handling? The Horsepower? Or the Looks?
The all-new 2004 Yamaha YZF-R6 begins with a radical new DeltaBox III frame. The first street motorcycle ever to use our new Controlled Filling Die Casting technique, resulting in a lighter aluminum frame that’s stiffer. What once took 16 welds now requires two.
2003 Yamaha YZF-R6 Features and Benefits
Revisions to the steering head give even greater feedback. And a 10mm longer swingarm and repositioned swingarm pivot improve traction.
