2011 Yamaha FZ6 R | Quick Look

2011 Yamaha Motorcycle

We had only one serious complaint about the Yamaha FZ6 that the new FZ6R has replaced – the motor lacked bottom end power, making it difficult to ride the FZ6 at anything but a white-knuckle pace.

The FZ6R fixed that problem, giving the bike a boost on the bottom end and a smooth powerband that is extremely forgiving.

You can still ride the FZ6R hard and have a rewarding experience, but this in-line four can now do so much more. It can be a great commuter or local sport-tourer, and returning riders will love it.
