– 2006 Yamaha YZF-R6S
YZF-R6S – Middleweight Supersport Class Reinvented
Cycle World magazine’s Best Middleweight Streetbike of 2005 also won the 2003 AMA Supersport championship. That’s a thing we call “balance”—a seemingly impossible combination of cutting-edge sporting prowess and real-world ridability. For 2006 we’ve changed the name but kept the same incredible combination of power, performance and style—at a lower price. The R6S.
