2020 Yamaha YZF-R6

The Yamaha YZF-R6 was introduced in the 1999 model year, passing through many generations until reaching today’s 2020 model. Historically, it has been one of the best selling and most recognizable sub-1000cc supersport bikes, and we also think it’s one of the best looking as well.

The R6 has a history of being “the first motorcycle to…” including the first over 100 HP at 600cc when it launched in 1999, and it continues to be one of the most powerful of the 600’s with 117 HP in 2020. It also continues to be one of the lightest inline 4 bikes at full wet weight of just 419 lbs.

Pricing for the 2020 YZF-R6 starts at $12,199 US/$14,599 CA
