About the 2005 Yamaha YZF-R6

Comes with better mid-range than previous models and it spins up more quickly, too, thanks to bigger throttle bodies and an improved engine map. The Yamaha YZF-R6’s 16v, DOHC motor is just as frenetic as ever, but around town there’s loads more flexibility than before.

Thanks to the upside-down forks, stiffer chassis and radial brakes the Yamaha YZF-R6’s handling is better than ever. The Yamaha YZF-R6’s suspension works very well, with plenty of adjustment available to help you dial in your riding style. It’s not too cramped, but anyone over six foot tall is going to struggle to stay comfortable for long on the Yamaha YZF-R6.
