Buyer’s Guide Model Detail

Colours shown may not be available in Canada.
The FZ6R is Yamaha's smallest naked bike, whose inline-four is derived from an earlier-generation R6, detuned of course. A steel frame and basic suspension help keep the price down. Strangely, there is no ABS, not even as an option.
