It’s back! The Yamaha R6 enters its third year of production but arrives unchanged this model year. Following its introduction in 2017 this latest version of the R6 has established itself as one of the most popular middleweights on the market, so Yamaha has opted to maintain the status quo until the competition finally catches up.
This latest version of the YZF-R6 still features a laundry list of high-performance components including the high-revving supersport engine, Deltabox aluminum frame, fully adjustable KYB suspension, MotoGP-inspired bodywork derived from the YZF-R1, aluminum fuel tank, traction control, ABS, and the same massive Nissin brake system found on the R1 as well.
For 2020, the most notable news is the R6 will now be offered in a Vivid Orange color combination along with the Raven Black and the popular Team Yamaha Blue, plus its $12,199 MSRP carries over for the third consecutive year.
