Yamaha YZF-R6 With Modern Technology
One particularly interesting supersport is the Yamaha YZF-R6. This machine not only impressed by the slightly aggressive-looking design, but also with modern technology. This bike is suitable for all motorcyclists who attach great importance to high performance. The Yamaha YZF-R6 was the first time in 1999 on the market. It was at that time a completely new design and not a further development of an already existing model. The engine has been specially developed for this machine.
The first version of the Yamaha YZF-R6 already impressed by the innovative engine technology. Thus, in this model already forged pistons and connecting rods coated were used. Through these components, the coefficients of friction in the motor can be significantly reduced, which in turn will benefit the performance. The four-cylinder engine with a displacement of 600 cc works with a compression ratio of 12.4: 1 This produces an output of 120 hp at an engine speed of 13,000 revolutions per minute. Since the bike has a weight of only 169 kg, very good performance figures are easily realizable. The construction of the Yamaha YZF R6 is deliberately chosen that slopes at an angle of more than 50 degrees are possible.
Although the first version of the Yamaha YZF-R6 was very impressive, the technology has been constantly improved. In 2002 the weight was reduced to 167.5 kg through various changes. In 2003, various parts of the engine were then modernized. The gasification technology used until then was replaced by a modern multi-point fuel injection. This may not be the engine power was increased, but improves the torque in the lower speed range significantly. The current version of the Yamaha YZF-R6 is equipped with titanium valves and two injectors per cylinder. In addition, there is a so-called anti-hopping clutch available that prevents the stamping of the rear wheel when shifting down. The engine power is 133 hp at an engine speed of 17.500/min.
