2017 Yamaha YZF-R6 (HOT LAP)
[Around The Utah Motorsports Campus]
Yamaha R6 was recently unveiled at 2016 American International Motorcycle Expo. The motorcycle went under a strict update, highly inspired from the flagship Yamaha R1 in terms of design and driving dynamics. The fifth generation R6 comes with an impressive exhaust note and this video shows how efficiently it takes on the challenges thrown by the race track to the rider. The high 850 mm of seat height allows much effective lean angles while the updated suspension (43 mm KYB front forks from R1) makes it even more effective on the track.
R6 still uses the same 599 cc, 4-cylinder engine but it would have been definitely tweaked for more performance and compliance to the new design and Euro4 norms. Available in 3 shades namely Matte Black, Team Yamaha Blue and Matt Silver/Intensity White, the motorcycle has been priced at $12,199 (INR 8.25 lakh approx). It will be on sale internationally from March 2017.
