The new low drag front fairing has been developed using some of the key elements from the YZF-R1, and the latest design gives a significant improvement of 8% in aerodynamic efficiency. As well as the redesigned front cowl and screen, the bike’s new LED flashers are incorporated within the rear view mirrors to reduce turbulence and drag.
Sophisticated Electric Control Technology
The YZF-R6 was one of the first motorcycles to adopt advanced electronics that ensure precision control, including the Yamaha Chip Controlled Throttle (YCC-T) and Yamaha Chip Controlled Intake (YCC-I). To give an even higher degree of controllability in a wide range of conditions, the YZF-R6 is now equipped with an advanced Traction Control System (TCS) that is adjusted by a switch on the handlebars.
Slimline Magnesium Rear Subframe
Rider mobility is a key factor in achieving a high level of handling agility and precision, and the YZF-R6 is fitted with a newly designed seat and rear subframe that allow the rider to shift their body weight quickly and easily. Manufactured from strong and light CF die-cast magnesium, the subframe is 20mm narrower at the front, allowing the rider to tuck in more closely to the tank for improved aerodynamics.
Quick Shift System
The YZF-R6 also comes equipped with a new Quick Shift System (QSS) that gives faster gear changing. This system is similar to the design used on the YZF-R1, and instantly cancels drive torque when an upshift is detected – enabling full throttle clutchless upshifts for outstanding acceleration through the close ratio 6-speed transmission.
YZF-R1 Type 43mm Front Forks
The YZF-R6 is equipped with new KYB upside down forks from the YZF-R1. This high specification front suspension features large diameter 43mm tubes to give a more planted feel, particularly during braking and cornering. The forks also offer a full range of adjustability that allows the rider to dial in their suspension – and together with the newly designed adjustable KYB rear shock, the YZF-R6 chassis can be set up to achieve precise and responsive handling performance to match different conditions.
320mm Diameter YZF-R1 Type Front Brakes
The new YZF-R6 also benefits from the use of a YZF-R1 type radial front brake system that is one of the most advanced systems fitted to any production Yamaha. Dual 320mm discs are equipped with aluminium 4-pot opposed piston calipers to give outstanding feel together with remarkable stopping power.
Lightweight Aluminium Fuel Tank
Another significant change is the fitment of a beautifully designed fuel tank that offers a number of important advantages over the previous model’s design. Manufactured from aluminium, this lightweight streamlined tank features deep knee recesses that enable the rider to grip the bike firmly and find an ideal position to match their physique and riding style.
