The Yamaha YZF-R6 received some fine tune and performance tweaks in the new 2010 Yamaha YZF-R1.
In fact, the 600cc Yamaha YZF-R6 received rave reviews from media as well as bike enthusiasts across the world. The MotoGP-inspired cross plane crankshaft technology made the YZF-R6 stand out and given it the edge over its adversaries in the liter-class segment.
The 2010 YZF-R1 got a makeover in the design salon, although a small way. What makes the wait exciting is that the Yamaha YZF-R1 LE which is a limited edition is a Valentino Rossi clone that comes with signature of Valentino Rossi flaunted on the fuel tank. Now who will not want to lay hands on this super bike?
The new Yamaha YZF-R6 will live to the expectations of bikers in the mid range bikes and it features the Yamaha’s chip-controlled throttle (YCC-T) system and a Yamaha chip-controlled intake (YCC-I) system. The ECU or the engine control unit has been readjusted so as to optimize power output in every gear or say deliver enhanced linear power from even lower rpm. Further, the exhaust system has also been readjusted to complement the tweaks. Chassis wise the YZF-R6 has gotten a magnesium subframe and titanium-based exhaust and a aluminum die-cast chassis.
Yamaha says that the readjustments made the 2010 YZF-R1 a low-mid rev-range bike that will not compromise on the power delivery at the higher revs.
All we can do is to wait for the super bike!
