The R6 made its debut way back in 1999. Since then, it has managed to redefine the bike racing genre with its amazing functionalities and super cool designs. Some signature features include ABS brakes with large 320 mm front rotors, 43 mm fully adjustable inverted forks and a design that borrows heavily from the head-turning R1. The latest in the line, the YZF R6 is super compact and lightweight at the same time, and features a 599 cc engine with DOHC, 16-valves, liquid-cooling and in-line four-cylinders.

With the power of 16,000 RPM, you can be sure that you will feel the thrill of the chase while riding this one. Also, with aerodynamic front fairing and an aerodynamically designed and focused windshield, wind resistance will now be a thing of the past and you will be able to zoom past high speeds without any discomfort. The front end comes with easy-adjust KYB 43 mm inverted forks and large 320 mm discs with radial mount 4-piston calipers.

Due to all this, handling the YZF R6 is as easy as you have always wanted it to be with smooth controls and an interface that bends superbly to your will. Also, in case you are planning to go on a lot of rides with a partner on this bike, you would be pleased to know that it sports Fully adjustable KYB piggyback rear shockers that will easily save the person sitting at the back from all kinds of jerks or jolts.

There is an R1 style aluminum fuel tank with a capacity of 17 litres along with a 6 – setting traction control system so that you find it comfortable to ride in all sorts of terrains and never have to stop and check for compatibility with your bike.
