2017 Yamaha YZF-R6 – Has the 2017 Yamaha YZF-R6 arrived? Unfortunately the photo that we published is a fake. This is an edited photo worked with Photoshop. Although this image is on the web. The image comes from the first who revealed the piggyback exhaust ends on the Honda CBR250RR.
The 600’s line resembles of the previous R6. However, it has a number of solutions used on the current R1. In particular, you can see the aggressive line of led headlamps drawn between fins above and small spherical projectors. If possible, the new model is even more aggressive than the 1000 cc “sister”. Also at the rear, we find something like the R1. The tail appears to have the flare behind the saddle with aerodynamics and corners “sharp” as the extreme end of the coding. A last touch of style is the large slits in sidepods.
2017 Yamaha YZF-R6 vs Yamaha YZF-R1
How to tell if the photo is a fake? We have to face this picture with an image of the Yamaha YZF-R1. Looking good parts of the chassis and engine are clear off the Yamaha YZF-R1. Look at the swing arm and you’ll understand better. The starting point of this fake it is a Yamaha Press Photo. The wheels with five spokes of 2017 Yamaha YZF-R6 is identical to the R1 Press Photo, as the holes on the front brake discs and the true crown.
The current motorcycle does 123bhp @ 14.500 rpm. So, the new bike should rise 130 bhp with the same redline. The compression ratio of 13.1:1 is likely to stay the same and the engine is going to stay to 600cc. The 2017 Yamaha YZF-R6 is not impossible. Maybe we could see it in the future. The debut of a new Yamaha YZF-R6 is it possible, especially now that the R1 platform has been updated. According to various sources, we could see it in production very soon. A great happiness for people who love the brand of Iwata. So, we can expect that Yamaha may borrow ideas and designs from the R1 to R6.
