Description

CUTTING EDGE CHAMPION.





Almost anywhere you look on the 2008 R6 you'll find something new, including YCC-I, Yamaha Chip Controlled Intake. It's bristling with loads of refinements and knowledge gained from years of racing. You can confidently say the YZF-R6 is the most advanced production 600cc motorcycle Yamaha - or anybody else - has ever built.

  • Light, powerful and bristling with knowledge gained from years of racing, the YZF-R6 is the most advanced production 600cc motorcycle Yamaha—or anybody else—has ever built.
  • The YZF-R6 was the first production motorcycle with a fly-by-wire throttle system—for flawless response under all conditions.
  • YCC-I, Yamaha Chip Controlled Intake, introduced in 2007 on the R1, is now used on the R6 to vary intake tract length for excellent cylinder filling and a broader powerband. On the higher-revving R6, its benefits are even more pronounced.
  • Slipper-type back torque-limiting clutch greatly facilitates braking/downshifting from high speed.
New for 2008
  • Over 50 friction-reducing strategies have been employed inside the engine, including the use of wider crank bearings.
  • Upgraded fuel injection mapping for the YCC-T dual-injector system complements the higher compression ratio for great throttle response and reduced engine braking.
  • A magnesium subframe removes weight from the rear of the motorcycle for increased mass centralization.
  • All-new frame takes handling to the next level, allowing more precise turn-in, greater corner speed, and tighter exits. Thicker headpipe-headstock and swingarm pivot area walls, and elimination of the frame crossmember, help achieve perfect balance.
  • New swingarm has internal ribs added, and extruded section is now forged to work with the new frame.
  • Revised outer fork tubes, a new lower triple clamp, and increased fork offset provide highly tactile front-end feedback.
  • Moving the rider and bars forward and slightly lower enhances braking and turn-in performance. Clip-ons are also lower and re-angled.
  • Front discs are 310 x 5mm instead of 4.5mm for increased cooling qualities.
  • Increased fork height adjustability and rear ride-height adjustment range accommodate a greater range of riders and tires.
  • Revised bodywork results in even greater aerodynamic efficiency.
Engine
  • YCCT—Yamaha Chip Controlled Throttle—uses a powerful ECU and multiple sensors to provide perfect, smooth engine response and optimal power whenever the throttle is twisted under all conditions.
  • Twin-injector fuel injection: shower-type injectors above each intake funnel help achieve optimum fuel atomization at high rpm.
  • Back torque-limiting slipper clutch greatly facilitates braking and downshifting from high speed. Close-ratio six-speed transmission delivers seamless power and maximum acceleration.
  • GP-style titanium muffler contributes to mass centralization and contains EXUP for a broad powerband, spot-on injection and emissions compliance.
  • Linerless, direct-plated ceramic-composite cylinder bores mean greater heat dissipation for consistent power delivery and reduced friction.
  • Cool magnesium valve and engine covers are light and stylish.
  • Direct-ignition coils, dual-electrode spark plugs and high-output magneto deliver extremely accurate, reliable firing.
Chassis/Suspension
  • Deltabox aluminum frame incorporates GP thinking in terms of engine positioning and rigidity for the ultimate in 600-class handling.
  • Light, Controlled-Fill swingarm pivots high in the frame, for increased anti-squat effect and mid-corner stability. TZ-type chain adjusters ease rear tire changes.
  • Four-way adjustable (preload, high-speed compression, low-speed compression and rebound damping) inverted fork with 41mm tubes increases freedom in setting up for street or track use; soak up the bumps and resist bottoming when braking.
  • Four-way adjustable (preload, high-speed compression, low-speed compression and rebound damping) piggyback rear shock delivers exceptional rear wheel tracking and stability.
  • Dual 310mm front disc brakes use forged one-piece radial-mount calipers and radial-pump front master cylinder with adjustable lever for astounding braking power and feel.
  • The casting technique for the five-spoke 17-inch wheels makes the rims light and strong, not to mention wickedly cool-looking.
Additional Features
  • Quick-detach license plate holder and rear turn signal mount makes prepping for track days or racing a snap.
  • Built-in lap timer is controlled by a right handlebar switch.
  • Multifunction digital and analog instrumentation features: programmable shift light, digital speedometer, analog tachometer, dual tripmeters with miles-on-reserve function, odometer, water temp gauge and lights for neutral, high beam, low fuel and turn signals.
