Want to make it hard­core?

Motorcycle News (UK) - - Road Test -

Yamaha have iden­ti­fied a sig­nif­i­cant group of hard­core cus­tomers who want a 600 ma­chine for the track or very oc­ca­sional road use.

To meet their needs Yamaha have pro­duced ‘race only’ parts for the new 2017 R6 which in­clude a ti­ta­nium Akrapovic ex­haust, elec­tron­ics bor­rowed from World Su­per­sport, an up as well as down quick­shifter, plus re­vised fu­elling and race body­work. The lighter body­work and ex­haust re­duces weight by around 10kg, and the power is in­creased by 10bhp to an es­ti­mated 125bhp. The ‘race only’ R6 high­lights what Yamaha could achieve with­out Euro4. Prices are still be­ing con­firmed.
