It surely is not easy to link, but owing to Torakusu Yamaha, an appliance maker, “Yamaha” is now synonymous with not only musical devices, the guitar among others; but also motorcycles.
Yamaha constructed his original reed organ in 1887 and first upright piano 13 years later – this was exhibited at the St Louis World Fair in 1904. Lets skip to 1955 when the Yamaha Company produced the first motorcycle – the YA1. It was a solo cylinder two-stroke 125cc motor, called the Red Dragonfly. In 1965 Yamaha introduced an automatic oiling system for the 2-stroke thus the rider wouldn’t have had to worry about combining gasoline and oil as they fill up.
The Yamaha YZF -R6 came about in 1968 and was built as a super sport version of the superbike, the R1 as a ‘partner’ to the YZF600R sportbike. The Yamaha R6 featured a totally different engine design able to deliver more than 108 horsepower (81Kw) whilst standing still.
The yamaha r6 has been revised, in truth, numerous times since introduction.
*The model of 2003 grew to be fuel injected- a system of blending gas and air in the combustion engine
* The 2006 model was considerably developed with a pristine engine management system which showcased the YCC -T fly-by-wire throttle as well as a multi-plate glide-on clutch.
* The 2008 model combined the YCC-I variable length intake mechanism which enabled it to optimize power at high engine rpm as well as a greater Delta box frame design.
The Yamaha R6 is specially made to accomplish a single duty exceptionally well: to zip around the track in the shortest time. It is termed as both track-ready and street smart. Its hard chassis allows the rider to move from vertical to absolute slant in no time at all.
Overpriced? No – selling for marginally over $US10, 000. If the new Yamaha R6 model has not already reached the market it will very soon. Your R6 grants you 40mpg and roughly 180 miles with its 4.5 gallon gas tank.
Yamaha did not disappoint with the Yamaha R6.
