RoadLoK powersport locking system now distributed by Yamaha Parts & Accessories. RoadLoK Security, developer and manufacturer of model-specific locking systems for powersport vehicles, has produced anti-theft systems for Yamaha’s sportbike and Star motorcycle lineup.
Yamaha’s R6, R1 and FZ6R customers can now secure their motorcycles with RoadLoK’s patented locking system–which, unlike disc locks, padlocks, or chains, completely immobilizes the vehicle without causing vehicular damage or rider injury.
In the stillness of a high desert afternoon, we can hear the Yamaha YZF-R6 clearly as it makes a test run toward us. Considering the bike is still at some distance, the high-pitched wail cuts through the air with amazing clarity, and the gearshifts come in quick succession as the 599cc engine rips through the top end of its rev range in each gear. Close-ratio transmissions make that possible, and they are invariably fitted to high-revving engines, where the power band is comparatively narrow and crowded into the top end of the engine’s usable rev range.
