2006 Yamaha R6.. A Revloution In Speed Bikes
hey folks .. as this is my first post , i wanna let u guys know that this is a great forum and a nice way to share knowledge..u guys have been doin an awesome job .. thumbs up to you all nd keep up the good work..
i would love to share an experience i had during the world launch of the 2006 Yahama R6 in the losail international circuit in Qatar that happened last december..
yamaha has always been known for its creation of cutting edge supersport bikes (r-series range )..but the latest range of the YZF-R6 is a mindblowing piece of machinery with revolutionary technology which you wouldnt find in any other speed bike till date .. this includes yamaha chip controlled throttle (YCC-T), a slipper clutch , a shorter stroke engine which produces a maximum rev limit of around 16,000 rpm .. another aspect that caught my eye is that the exhaust stinger starts from the rear portion of the engine whithout a bent..i believe this is done to increase the bhp..
i was privillaged to meet with the R and D team of yamaha who are the architect of this mind-blowing product .. you can see an aura of confidence and determination in them .. most of them were japanese and trust me ..they were the most sweetest and hadrworking people i have ever come across..i have always been a fan of yamaha just because of the fact that whatever it comes up with in the international market has truly got a class of its own .. no doubt bout that ..
all i could say by the end of the day was .."HATS OFF TO YAMAHA"..

I personaly got a chance to see the New 06 R6, and let me tell the first reaction was this bike is hot. The bike roars and the power is incredible, no matter there is a tacho error, i never felt its lacking the power what those yamaha guys has said about this new R6. The design is ultimate, you need to see it to belive it. The front air suction duct looks as if it is inspired by the look of Predetor. The exhaust is loud, and gives a feeling of raw power on a twist. Me being 85kgs doesnt hurt the beast, and the front end comes up easily. The tail is narrow, feels like you cannot accomadate a pillian like me but practicaly its possible. The bike is small, what can i say, its small !!. The bike is completly different from its older models.

personally the r series by yamaha has been 1 of my favourites ....
the 06 r6 is really ahead of its time if i might say so regardinng the performance and the appearance ...only flaw that i felt looking at the bike was that the exhaust is simply out of sorts for whatever reasons ..but it is ...
like the bike overall ...great machine ...

Yamaha claims that the 06 R6 is the 1st production bike to have fly-by-wire throttle system.
ALso it has Yamaha's specially designed slipper-clutch type rear torque controlling clutch
The sterring head, swing arm and rear axle are the same line to aid better riding and handling.
Also, just the fixing of a 2-5mm damper in the rear has massively bettered handling in test rides.
All these features have been lauded by journalists and riders.
GO!!!!!!!! (OOps sorry...no more Gauloises...now it's CAMEL right?

The 2006 Yam R6 sound like a great bike, waiting to see one in Mumbai ... i bet its already here .... wanna know from the riders thenselves what theyve gotta say abt this one ...
Yamaha had launched the bike with a claim that it revvs upto 17500 rpm ... thats what the tacho reads .... but then some auto journos proved that wrong. Yamaha went ahead and openly accepted the wrong figures and apologised for the mistake. They even agreed to accpet the sold bikes back from their owners if they wnated to, but guess wat, no one did ... hehe
Just drifting away frm the topic here ...
Now my question, Do you or anyone else know that in such a case will the manufaturer eg Yamaha Motorcycles help one in getting a bike of his choice? The person is ready to pay all the necessary duties, taxes, whatever ... So, is it possible or if you guys could suggest any way in which i could inquire abt this.
