The new YZF-R6 adopts a radical new look that is clearly inspired by the latest generation YZF-R1.

With its M1-type central forced air intake and recessed LED twin headlights, the bike's aggressive face and glaring looks make sure that it's instantly recognisable as being a member of the R-series family. 

The YZF-R6 was one of the first motorcycles to adopt advanced electronics that ensure precision control, including the Yamaha Chip Controlled Throttle (YCC-T) and Yamaha Chip Controlled Intake (YCC-I). To give an even higher degree of controllability in a wide range of conditions, the YZF-R6 is now equipped with an advanced Traction Control System (TCS), D-Mode and a Quick Shift System (QSS).
