MSRP $9,599

Eight years ago Yamaha's ground breaking YZF-R6 smashed traditional middleweight class rules. Its light, nimble chassis paired with a compact yet powerful, high-revving powerplant wrapped in sharp, aesthetically pleasing bodywork raised the bar and simultaneously transformed what riders have now come to expect from a 600cc Supersport bike.
