Fast Bikes - - GEARED UP -

Yamaha’sYamaha’ new R6 is a ter­rific bike, but could do with get­ting back some of those ponies lost via Euro 4, and a lit­tle bit ex­tra would be nice at the same time, too. This stain­less-steel sys­tem from Yoshi’ (with a stain­less/car­bon end can) could be just the ticket. It’s claimed to add about 4 per cent power, 2.3 per cent torque and re­duce the over­all weight by nearly 5kg. The weight sav­ing is great, and while the power gains may not seem huge, it’s just the start and ex­pect more after sort­ing the fu­elling or get­ting it flashed. There is a ti­ta­nium ver­sion too, which weighs in at £2,141, while the can alone is £695.
