2017 Yamaha YZF-R6 Will Be Inspired By Its Flagship Superbike — New Image Revealed

Written By:

Most countries are adopting new emission standards, and Euro 4 emission norms will force several manufacturers to stop selling existing models in several countries.

Now, Yamaha has decided to reinvent its YZF-R6 for 2017. The supersport model will be heavily inspired by its YZF-R1 superbike. An all-new image of the 2017 YZF-R6 has surfaced across the internet, which has sparked some curiosity.

The all-new Yamaha YZF-R6 will be redesigned from the ground up for 2017. No engine specifications are available at this moment. Engineers will focus on making the 2017 YZF-R6 efficient, as well as performance oriented.

The very first YZF-R6 from Yamaha was introduced back in 1999. If the 2017 Yamaha YZF-R6 is launched, it will be the sixth iteration of the supersport/middleweight model. We expect the all-new YZF-R6 to make its first public debut by 2016-end.

Competitors such as Triumph and Honda have also confirmed that they will stop selling their middleweight/ supersport bikes due to dwindling sales and fall in demand. Also, the Daytona 675 and CBR600RR do not meet the new emission norms.
