YZF-R6 Street Bike
« on: October 26, 2016, 03:04:00 PM »
I'm street bike shopping and I'm looking for some real world reviews on the YZF-R6 Yamaha street bike. I'm most likely going to buy a used bike so I'd appreciate any info on the older models more than anything.

Here' what Yamaha writes on their website for the new model:

Quote
Beauty - Technology - Speed - Meet the All-New 2017 YZF-R6
On track or street, the YZF-R6 was already one of the most advanced and successful super-sport machines ever built. For 2017, radical new styling wraps up an even more intelligent racing machine, complete with ABS brakes, new suspension and new electronic rider aids.

Unparalleled Racetrack Success
The Yamaha YZF-R6 has won more AMA middleweight races and championships than any other 600cc sportbike, making it the number one choice for amateur and professional racers alike.

Legendary R6 Handling
Already one of the most nimble machines in the supersport class, 2017 brings additional mass-centralization to the proven R6 package along with updated suspension, for improved front-end feedback and greater cornering confidence.

Thrilling Power and Control
With a class-leading, high-revving four-cylinder power-plant at its heart, the R6 already screams across the start/finish line ahead of the pack, but for 2017, the addition of traction control and D-Modes allow the rider to extract even more performance from the potent engine.

Let me know what you guys think on these bikes.

  • Is the YZF-R6 Reliable?
  • Is the YZF-R6 Seat Comfortable?
