Among the 600cc segment, Yamaha R6 is one of the best, it has loud exhaust screaming up to 11000 rpm. It moves fast and some says it's easy in handling and looks pretty smart and sexy, the fairing is one that caught the eye of a person. So,i too want one piece of R6, but can't find in India.. Why isn't it imported in India for Sale?? So please, am requesting the Yamaha dealer in India to import R6 too..
