2016 Yamaha R6 60th Anniversary Motorcycle Review – Surprisingly I, being a bigger guy, thought the R6 would fit me better than its little brother the R3. I was wrong! The R6 is a purposeful machine, at home on a track with a silky smooth blistering top-end motor and solid transmission. Dont mistake the rocket propelled 16,000 rpm engine as a slough at low speed however. It delivers effortless, natural power delivery from a stop to normal slow speed maneuvers even in top gear without any complaints. Features are sparse and the platform is due for a complete overhaul very soon, likely in the next 1-2 years. Youll find no special electronics or features here – just a cable throttle and clutch, manually adjustable suspension settings and thats about it. The tach is the only gauge youll be looking at when using it aggressively and thankfully its large and clear as a bell complete with shift light to get your attention while looking at the road. The rest of the dash is small but functional. Control felt solid and smooth while the seating and riding position is simply going to come down to each persons individual taste and measurements. Each brand will fit you differently much like helmets, so shop around!
