The motorcycle Yamaha’s featured completely latest engine design capable of producing over 108 hp-81 kW while immobile. The R6 was the world’s first 600cc production 4-stroke motorcycle producing over 100 hp (75 kW) in stock procedure.
The Yamaha YZF-R6 has been revised numerous times since its production. Preliminary with the 2003 model, the R6 became fuel-injected. The 2006 model year was a significant upgrade with a new engine management system featuring the YCC-T ride by wire throttle and a multi-plate slipper clutch.
The 2008 model incorporated the YCC-I variable-length intake system to optimize power at high engine rpm and an improved Delta box frame design. The Yamaha R6 was very successful and extremely capable. 2008 saw a host of small changes to give it a bit more mid-range power via higher compression ratio, as well as getting Yamaha’s patented variable intake (YCC-I) and electronically-aided throttle (YCC-T) systems.
Yamaha YFZ R-6 Key Features
Light, powerful, and bristling with knowledge gained from years of racing, the YZF-R6 is the most advanced production 600cc motorcycle Yamaha or anybody else has ever built. The Yamaha YZF-R6 was the first production motorcycle with YCC-T, Yamaha Chip Controlled Throttle system for flawless response under all conditions.
Yamaha Chip Controlled Intake YCC-I, is used on the R6 to vary intake tract length for excellent cylinder filling and a broader power band.
The YZF R-6 has back torque-limiting slipper-type clutch greatly facilitates braking/downshifting from high speed. Close-ratio six-speed transmission delivers seamless power and maximum acceleration.
YFZ R-6 Engine
Yamaha YFZ R6 has cmpact, lightweight 67mm x 42.5mm, 599cc DOHC 16-valve, liquid-cooled titanium-valved 4-cylinder has a compression ratio of 13.1:1, for great response. Domed pistons with valve cutouts produce a compact combustion chamber.
Yamaha Chip Controlled Throttle dual-injector system complements the high compression ratio for great throttle response and reduced engine braking.
Yamaha Chip Controlled Intake electronically varies intake tract length for a broader power band.
Yamaha Chip Controlled Throttle (YCC-T) uses a powerful ECU and multiple sensors to provide perfect, smooth engine response and optimal power whenever the throttle is twisted under all conditions.
In YFZ R-6 shower-type injectors above each intake funnel help achieve optimum fuel atomization at high rpm and slipper-type back torque-limiting clutch greatly facilitates braking and downshifting from high speed. Close-ratio six-speed transmission delivers seamless power and maximum acceleration.
Yamaha YZF R6’s GP-style titanium muffler contributes to mass centralization and contains EXUP for a broad power band, and 02 sensors for spot-on injection and emissions compliance.
Its liner less, direct-plated ceramic-composite cylinder bores mean greater heat debauchery for consistent power delivery and reduced friction.
It’s cool magnesium valve and engine covers are light and stylish make it unique two wheeler.
YFZ R-r direct-ignition coils, dual-electrode spark plugs and high-output magneto deliver extremely accurate, dependable firing.
Yamaha YFZ R-6 Chassis and Suspension
A magnesium sub frame removes weight from the rear of the motorcycle for increased mass centralization.
YFZ R6 Deltabox aluminum frame incorporates GP thinking in terms of engine positioning and rigidity for the ultimate in 600-class handling.
The lightweight swingarm pivots high in the frame, for increased anti-squat effect and mid-corner stability. TZ-type chain adjusters ease rear tire changes.
The 4-way adjustable (preload, high-speed compression, low-speed compression and rebound damping) inverted fork with 41mm tubes increases freedom in setting up for street or track use; soak up the bumps and resist bottoming when braking. And four-way adjustable (preload, high-speed compression, low-speed compression and rebound damping) piggyback rear shock delivers exceptional rear wheel tracking and stability.
YZF R6 has dual 310mm front disc brakes use forged one-piece radial-mount calipers and radial-pump front master cylinder with adjustable lever for astounding braking power and feel.
The casting technique for the 5-spoke 17-inch wheels makes the rims light and strong, not to mention wickedly cool-looking.
Removable rear shock spacer and adjustable fork ride height allows the rider to tailor the ride position for the best fit and comfort.
The Yamaha YZF R6 Additional Features Make the Supper Sports Bike
The latest features built-in lap timer is controlled by a right handlebar switch. Multifunction digital and analog instrumentation features are programmable shift light, digital speedometer, analog tachometer, dual trip meters with miles-on-reserve function, odometer, water temp gauge and lights for neutral, high beam, low fuel and turn signals.
