Yamaha YZF-R6 2019 Experiences and Expert Review

Dennis

It almost seems as if the Yamaha YZF-R6 was born on the race track. It is easy to see that the R6 is the little sister of the YZF-R1. Whether it's the design, the ergonomics, the braking or the electronic aids - the racing genes are everywhere! The R6 is an outstanding piece of engineering in the 600cc class and, depending on your preferences, is probably the best 600cc bike currently available - at least for the racetrack. The Yamaha gives the rider unbelievably high precision and feedback over the front wheel and the chassis, and is super manageable at the same time! The engine is extremely rev-happy, but also wants to be kept happy. It is a pity that the latest version of the R6 has lost some of its power due to Euro 4... Nevertheless, it will be the faster track bike for most of us. And if there is a need, an open exhaust system (without road homologation) and mapping can tickle a few more horsepower out of the super sports bike. Sharp design meets even sharper components - TOP!
