Yamaha has launched the updated Yamaha YZF-R6 at the American International Motorcycle Expo in Florida, USA.
Yamaha have boldly committed to the sector with this heavily revised and redesigned 2017 yamaha YZF-R6. The yamaha YZF- R6 has got itself new fairings with all-LED lighting, integrated turn signals and new aluminium fuel tank. Powering Yamaha’s latest motorcycle is a 599 cc liquid-cooled DOHC inline 4-cylinder engine that comes mated to a 6-speed transmission supported by a slipper clutch. A Quickshifter can be added to the bike as an accessory. Yamaha launched a something new in the market for better updates in the previous one R6 bike.

Also, Quickshifter for faster full throttle clutchless upshifts with 43mm YZF-R1 type fork with YZF-R6 specific settings and 320mm diameter YZF-R1 type front brakes with radial 4-pot calipers ,Slimline magnesium rear sub frame.

Lightweight aluminium fuel tank Enhanced riding position ABS Euro4 compliant with the good D-Mode system with 3 riding modes and an optional quick-shifter that works only while upshifting.
In this, there’s also a new instrument cluster that features an analogue style tachometer and digital speedometer with a multi function display that includes TCS and ABS status. While it’s well laid out and pleasant enough, it, again, feels like a bit of an afterthought, and looks immediately dated by comparison with the YZF-R1’s TFT dash.
The 599cc parallel twin engine is unchanged and we tried hard to get the specific power and torque output, but Yamaha does not want to divulge that information. Rumours are that the R6 produces anything between 100 -120 bhp at the rear wheel. It is unlike that Yamaha will be launching in April 2017 R6 in India as well.
