Yamaha R6 gets power boost for 2010

Yamaha has boosted the midrange power of its dominant YZF-R6 in an attempt to broaden the appeal and performance of its 16,000rpm supersport screamer. The firm, keen to re-emphasise the R6 as the bike which benefits from race-derived technology first, still doesn’t give it a crossplane crank however.

No it's not you Antee, the exhaust is quite a bit longer. Detracts from the looks compared to the current model.

2010 R6

Well I'm sticking with my lovely 08 model. A PC111 sorted out the mid range and dosen't everyone change the can anyway? Was holding out for some major changes but I guess the recession has put this on hold for  a while??

... I was in the market for a new 600cc then this would be the bike for me. Finished in the blue and white.


Good looking machine. If I already had an 07-08 plate R6 then I would be keeping it though... Awesome looking machine and even thought the alterations for the new bike aren't too far from the old one at least Yamaha have managed to do a little more than ONLY changing the paint scheme like all the other manufacturers are doing.

R6 M1 race rep

I'd like it in the James Toesland england scheme or the new Black/yellow.As for the exhaust I agree we usually change the end can-i'd like a road legal Termignoni like the old Yamahas had as standard.

OMG that exhaust and tail are nasty. Why are so many new bikes having the number plate mounted that way? So that everyone goes out and buys a tail tidy?

2011 hitting 2010 sales.

The problem is who is going to buy this? If the new Yamaha R6 coming out in 2011 is as good as it has been made out to be in this weeks MCN, then why would anyone part with their cash and buy an 2009 model. Best to put it in the bank for a year and buy the new more stylish, advanced version in 12 months or so.
