If Yamaha%X92s YZF-R1 is getting on a bit, having not had a major facelift since 2009, its supersport R6 brother is now positively ancient. Its last notable tweak was revealed in 2007 when the %X9208-spec bike was shown, but the basic design dates back to the 2006 model, which was first unveiled to the world in late 2005. So it%X92s not surprising...
Q. I have been running Dunlops on my Yamaha R6 and didn%X92t get on very well with them. I did start looking at Pirelli Diablos or Metzelers, then someone suggested Michelin 2CTs%X85Plumbus, MCN Forums A. The 2CTs are a sound tyre with great wet weather performance. But they were introduced in 2006, and in a market where sports tyres have a...
Q. I have an %X9204 Yamaha R6, and on cold mornings the oil light comes on for about 30 seconds after I have been riding for a couple of minutes. When the bike has done about three or four miles or when engine is warmed up a bit it stays out. This only happens in the winter months. I change the...
Hardcore, know the score. The Yamaha YZF-R6 is a sexy uber-capable track bike that works on the road too. It caught the 600 race rep class napping and nothing came close until Suzuki launched its 2001 GSX-R600 %X96 that%X92s a long time to rule the 600 roost and shows just how good the original Yamaha YZF-R6 was.
Yamaha%X92s designers had one problem with superceding its 2006-07 R6, and that was how to improve a motorcycle that was very good in the first place. But improve it they have with clever attention to details borne from its World Supersport racing program. A designer%X92s touch here and the same effort there, has led to the Yamaha R6 being the...
Wise move or not?
anyone else with an 06 r6 suffer from bad vibration on right hand grip .mine is that bad after 20-25 min i get pins and needles ,mentioned it to dealer they said their demo was the same
The 2006 Yamaha R6 was the most high-tech, track focussed motorcycle you could buy when it was released. Technology to put Yamaha%X92s own R1 of the day to shame, reinforcing that 600cc motorcycles are no longer a budget option but for many, simply the best choice. Rapid, gorgeous and sometimes frustrating on the road but still easy to fall in...
For a supersports machine that%X92s as easy to ride to the shops as it is round Donington Park the 2005 Yamaha YZF-R6 comes close to spot-on. Launched as a rearguard action while the factory prepared their dinky, ride-by-wire %X9206 hottie, this older version of the Yamaha YZF-R6 still comes with toys like radial brakes and is seriously underrated.
