Video: Yamaha XJ6 Diversion and naked XJ6 tested

Published: 20 January 2009

MCN has just returned from testing the new Yamaha XJ6 Diversion and naked XJ6 in Australia.

The two new models both feature the same de-tuned inline-four engine from the Yamaha R6.

The faired, XJ6 Diversion is smooth and easy-to-use - aimed more at commuters and novices alike.

The naked XJ6 is a completely different animal. With the fairing removed the XJ6 weighs 6kg less making it more agile manic.
