– 2006 Yamaha YZF-R6

YZF-R6 – Middleweight Supersport Class Reinvented

The all-new R6 is full of Yamaha-exclusive innovations and new technologies that make it the most advanced production motorcycle ever built. The new R6 features an all-new four-cylinder engine capable of amazing acceleration. A MotoGP-derived “straight frame” chassis houses it—and Formula 1 style aerodynamics and a titanium MotoGP-style exhaust are just two of the things that complete it. Yamaha has raised the bar and revolutionized the class—AGAIN.
