This is a current mid-range “bullet” bike offered by Yamaha. Ever since its founding as a motorcycle manufacturer on July 1, 1955, Yamaha Motor Company has worked to build products which stand among the very best in the world through its constant pursuit of quality. Following on the success of motorcycles, Yamaha began manu-facturing powerboats and outboard motors in 1960. Since then, they have used their engine technology as a base to actively expand and diversify into other areas of business. Yamaha introduced the YZF R6 in 1999. Following in the footsteps of their earthshaking R1, Yamaha's design goals for the R6 were: highest horsepower in its class, the lightest, fastest, and best-handling--using all of the technological tricks of the R1. This bike has quick steering and has plenty of power for back roads and road circuits.
