Race-ready Specification

The R6 RACE is now supplied from the factory in a race-ready specification with non-essential road components removed. This makes circuit preparation quicker and easier, and confirms the R6 RACE as the ultimate track bike with an outstanding race record that is second to none.

Lightweight high-performance engine

The high-performance R6 engine has achieved legendary status by winning 5 consecutive WorldSSP Championships. Like every R-Series it’s been constructed with advanced race-developed technology from Yamaha’s World Championship machinery. The combination of lightweight forged pistons with a 13.1 : 1 compression ratio and titanium valves give you a thrilling ride along with winning performance.

Sophisticated electronic control technology

The R6 RACE is equipped with various high-tech electronic systems that help you to achieve your best performance. The Quick Shift System (QSS) enables full throttle clutchless upshifting, and the Yamaha Chip Controlled Intake (YCC-I) and Yamaha Chip Controlled Throttle (YCC-T) – as well as a slipper clutch and close ratio 6-speed transmission – give you the highest level of controllability on every circuit.

High-specification R1-type front forks

Coming with an extremely high specification as standard, the R6 RACE is equipped with golden coloured state-of-the-art R1-type fully adjustable 43mm front forks. This high-tech front end gives outstanding roadholding with excellent feedback and contributes significantly towards making this one of the best-handling bikes in the class.

320mm diameter YZF-R1 type front brakes

To match the high-specification golden coloured 43mm front forks the R6 RACE runs with dual 320mm hydraulic discs that are gripped by radial mount 4-pot opposed piston calipers. Built to the same specification as the system on the WSBK race-winning R1, this advanced class leading design gives outstanding stopping power together with precise control.

Lightweight aluminium fuel tank

The R6 RACE is fitted with a lightweight aluminium fuel tank that is sculpted to give you plenty of freedom to shift your bodyweight and achieve the best riding position. Featuring deep knee recesses, that allow you to tuck in tightly and grip the tank, this beautifully finished 17-litre tank design highlights the motorcycle’s premium specification.
