2011 Yamaha YZF-R6
The Yamaha YZF-R6 is designed to do one thing extremely well: get around a race track in minimal time. It’s about a screaming, 15,000-rpm-plus fuel-injected four-cylinder engine in a taut chassis that lets it snap from upright to full lean instantly. It’s also a great streetbike too.
Once the weapon of choice in the World Supersport Championship, the Yamaha YZF-R6 will return to the grid in 2011 at the hands of Chaz Davies.
