Yamaha YZF-R6 is UK favourite

Published: 02 August 2007

Latest figures released by Bennetts motorcycle insurance show the Yamaha R6 is the most quoted motorcycle of the year so far.

Eleven per cent of all the insurance company’s quotes have been for the middleweight Japanese sportsbike, marginally beating Suzuki’s GSX-R600.

Bennetts’ Marketing Director, Mark Fellis, said: “The Yamaha YZF-R6 and Suzuki GSX-R600 are clear favourites for motorcyclists across the UK. With 22 per cent of the total quotes shared between these individual two motorcycles, Japanese engineering currently appears to be the preferred choice of British motorcyclists.”

The Kawasaki ZX-6R took third spot in front of the Yamaha R1 and Suzuki SV650.
