Yamaha YZF-R6 2016 Model Features & Benefits

YZF-R6-60th USA CAN 2016

  • The Ultimate 600cc Supersport Platform
    Light, powerful, and equipped with the features and technology gained from winning multiple Supersport racing championships, the YZF-R6 is the most advanced production 600cc motorcycle Yamaha—or anybody else—has ever built.
  • Advanced Ride-by-Wire Control
    The YZF-R6 was the first production motorcycle with YCC-T®, Yamaha Chip Controlled Throttle system, for flawless response under all conditions.
  • Variable Length Intake System
    YCC-I®, Yamaha Chip Controlled Intake, is used on the R6 to vary intake tract length for excellent cylinder filling and a broader powerband.
  • Racing-derived Slipper Clutch and Transmission
    Back torque-limiting slipper-type clutch greatly facilitates braking/downshifting from high speed. Close-ratio 6-speed transmission delivers seamless power and maximum acceleration.
  • Legendary Racetrack Success
    The Yamaha YZF-R6 has won more AMA middleweight races and championships than any other 600cc sportbike.
  • Cutting Edge Engine Design
    Compact and lightweight 599cc DOHC liquid-cooled four-cylinder engine features 16 titanium valves and a compression ratio of 13.1:1 for great response. Domed pistons with valve cutouts produce a compact combustion chamber.
  • Race-tested Intake System
    Fuel injection mapping for the YCC-T—Yamaha Chip Controlled Throttle dual-injector system complements the high compression ratio for great throttle response and reduced engine braking.
  • Variable Length Intake System
    YCC-I, Yamaha Chip Controlled Intake, electronically varies intake tract length for a broader powerband.
  • Advanced Throttle-by-Wire Control
    YCC-T—Yamaha Chip Controlled Throttle uses a powerful ECU and multiple sensors to provide perfect, smooth engine response and optimal power whenever the throttle is twisted under all conditions.
  • High-Volume Fuel Injection
    Twin-injector fuel injection: shower-type injectors above each intake funnel help achieve optimum fuel atomization at high rpm.
  • Racing-derived Slipper Clutch and Transmission
    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.
  • Compact Titanium Exhaust
    GP-style titanium muffler contributes to mass centralization and contains EXUP®—Exhaust Ultimate Power Valve—for a broad powerband, and O2 sensor for spot-on injection and emissions compliance.
  • Low Friction Cylinder Technology
    Linerless, direct-plated ceramic-composite cylinder bores mean greater heat dissipation for consistent power delivery and reduced friction.
  • Lightweight Engine Covers
    Cool magnesium valve and engine covers are light and stylish.
  • High Output Ignition System
    Direct-ignition coils, dual-electrode spark plugs and high-output magneto deliver extremely accurate, reliable firing.
