Quick Review: 2012 Yamaha YZF-R6June 18, 2012 by: Rituraj Mishra
If you thought last week lacked some innovations and technology, here something to hook you up in the new week. The 2012 Yamaha YZF-R6 is made of innovations and technology all the way and they are nothing you have seen before. They are all new and just with this bike.
The first time feature includes a fly-by-wire throttle system, with this Yamaha performs to the fullest in the worst of the conditions. All the new innovations have been done keeping in mind the riders. Riders want their bike to be more functional, better to ride and have good handling. These traits have been taken care of by the makers of this bike.
The Slipper-type back torque-limiting clutch allows smooth braking and downshifting even at high speeds and reliable firing is delivered by the direct-ignition coils, dual-electrode spark plugs and high-output magneto.
I give you a week and show me one reason why not to go for this bike.
