Buyer’s Guide Model Detail

Buyer's Guide > YZF-R6
Colours shown may not be available in Canada.
The R6 is the most recently updated supersport on the market. The engine and chassis are pretty much the same as the older model, but the new model gets a comprehensive electronics package — six-mode traction control, new suspension, ABS,  riding modes, and optional quickshifter. This model goes a long way towards bringing next-generation supersports forward.
