The Yamaha YZF-R6 is an acomplished 600 cc sport bike which was first introduced in 1999. The original R6 was upgraded in 2001, 2003, 2006 and revised in the years in between.

The Yamaha YZF-R6 acted as a much needed replacement sports bike for the YZF600R Thundercat, which was relegated to a touring role on the the R6's introduction.

The engine of the R6 was an all-new inline four cylinder unit which created around 120 horsepower. It was fed by a 'ram air' style intake positioned between the headlights leading to the airbox.

The twin spar aluminium frame of the Yamaha YZF-R6 is light and rigid, and offers impeccable handling.


Review by: Melvin L.
The 1999-2006 Yamaha YZF-R6 is capable of doing more than the top speed of 151 mph stock. I have one, a 2003, and have once hit 172 mph according to the speedometer, but regularly it tops out at about 165, so I'd just like to correct that bit of information listed on the R6 page.
