It sure is tricky to link, but thanks to Mr. Torakusu Yamaha, an instrument creator, “Yamaha” has now become synonymous with music gadgets such as the guitar among others as well as motorcycles.
Yamaha put together his initial reed organ in 1887 and first upright piano 13 years later – and was displayed at the St Louis World Fair in 1904. Lets fast forward to 1955 when the Yamaha Company created the first motorcycle – the YA1. It was a single cylinder 2 stroke 125cc motor, christened the Red Dragonfly. 1965: Yamaha presented an automated oiling system for the two stroke such that one wouldn’t have had to worry about combining oil and gasoline when filling up.
In 1968, the Yamaha YZF -R6 was introduced and was built as a supersport version of the superbike, the R1 as a ‘buddy’ to the YZF600R sportsbike. The R6 came with a completely different engine design able to supply more than 108 horsepower (81Kw) while it stands still.
It has been redesigned, as a matter of fact, a number of times since its introduction. The model of 2003 grew to be fuel injected- a type of blending air and fuel in an internal combustion engine * 2006 model: it was considerably enhanced with a new engine management system that featured the YCC -T fly-by-wire throttle and a multi-plate glide-on clutch. * 2008it model combined the YCC-I variable length intake system that enabled it to adjust power at greater engine revolutions per minute as well as an advanced Delta box design of the frame.
The R6 now performs one duty exceptionally well and that is to rocket around the track in the shortest time. It has been labelled as both street-smart not to mention track-ready. The taut body enables the rider to shift from erect to complete slant in no time at all.
Pricey? Never – selling for slightly above 10,000 Dollars US. If the new R6 model is not yet reached the market it will be very soon. Your R6 gives you 40mpg roughly 180 miles with its 4.5 gallon gas tank.
Yamaha has not disappointed you with the Yamaha R6.
Bike riding is actually current passion of Dr Nakamuro Iogozaki, although he has quite the practical experience by now, changing motorbikes constantly. Hence his thoughts are generally worth listening to. He liked the Yamaha R6 and primarily his Yamaha R6 2008 so much that he actually started a weblog about them: http://yamahar6info.com
