MCN is looking for readers to take part in the first test of the 2010-spec Yamaha R6 against the 2009 model.
The test will take place on Tuesday February 2 at Bruntingthorpe Proving Ground in Leicestershire. You’ll get time on both bikes and your face in MCN, though you’ll also have to spend time waiting around while we ride the bikes, take pictures and shoot video too.
We’re looking for the owner of a 2008/2009 specification R6 who is interested in trading in for the new model, and a rider who doesn’t currently own an R6 but is in the market to buy one soon.
Reliable people are required – you must be 100% confident in your ability to make it. You’ll need to be free for the whole day, and be prepared to ride in the wet if necessary.
You’ll need a full licence and full head-to-toe protective kit. We also want to know about your recent riding experience – you don’t need to have ridden for 20 years, but if you’ve just stepped off a 125 you’re not the person we’re looking for.
The deadline for applying was 1pm Friday 29 January to allow us to organise the test – no more applications are being considered. Thanks to those who applied.
