While the supersport looks have been inspired by the flagship YZF-R1, Yamaha says that the YZF-R6 has its own unique character and profile.
The all New 2017 YZF-R6 is comes with a new front cowl and windscreen which is claimed to be the most efficient aerodynamics ever featured on this model. The front fairing has been developed using some of the key elements from the YZF-R1. The latest design is claimed to deliver a significant improvement of 8% in aerodynamic efficiency. The bike’s new LED flashers are incorporated within the rear view mirrors to reduce turbulence and drag. Behind the cowl is the new instrument panel.

Apart from the Aluminium Deltabox frame, the YZF-R6 is fitted with a newly designed seat and rear subframe that allow the rider to shift their body weight quickly and easily. Manufactured from CF die-cast magnesium, the subframe is 20mm narrower at the front, which is claimed to allow the rider to tuck in more closely to the tank for improved aerodynamics. The seat is the same height as the current model, but has a gentler upwards angle towards the rear which is aimed at giving increased freedom of movement.
The motorcycle draws power from a 599cc, liquid-cooled, 4-valve DOHC, 4-stroke, 4-cylinder engine. The two-wheeler maker, however, has remained tight lipped about the performance numbers. The engine comes mated to a six-speed constant mesh transmission.
