– 2006 Yamaha YZF-R6 50th Anniversary Edition
YZF-R6 50th Anniversary Edition – 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.
An all new titanium valved four cylinder engine capable of an amazing 17,500rpm and controlled by the first fly by wire system on a production bike powers it. 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. In celebration of Yamaha’s 50 years in the motorsports business, we have dressed this limited availability 50Th anniversary model in our famous yellow & black paint scheme.
The R6 is not intended for novice or inexperienced riders.
