The features that Yamaha has for the YZF-R6 are done with the riders in mind to make their bikes more functional, better to ride and handle. The Slipper-type back torque-limiting clutch greatly facilitates braking and downshifting from high speed. Also the close-ratio six-speed transmission delivers seamless power and maximum acceleration. The direct-ignition coils, dual-electrode spark plugs and high-output magneto deliver extremely accurate, reliable firing.
