  • Light, rapid steering and hard to fault on the track – ultimately the Yamaha YZF- R6's pegs will touch down but that takes some doing. The bars.

    Yamaha's feisty little R6 has deservedly gained a cult status and, from , a close affinity to Yamaha's ground breaking R1, the bike that.

    Definite powerband starting around 8. As a relatively new rider I had always fancied an R6, but decided to play it safe and serve a years apprenticeship on a Hornet. The handling is excellent it feels light and flick-able. My bike was horribly unstable at speed and refused to hold a line in corners.

    There is something very satisfying about riding a bike as analogue as the R6. If you want a cheap track hack, a cosmetically tatty carbed R6 would fit the bill perfectly, while those wanting a budget supersport bike with a bit of spirit should also give one a go. Light, rapid steering and hard to fault on the track — ultimately the Yamaha YZF-R6's pegs will touch down but that takes some doing. As with a two-stroke you need to be heavy on the revs and clutch at low rpm to get going. Hit rpm and the R6 wakes up, driving strongly as long as you are hard on the gasbefore the next kick in power at 10,rpm where it really takes off towards its 15,rpm redline.

    Plenty of major parts resist the rigors of rain and salt well. Bolts, brackets and fasteners plus a handful of bigger components fur or rust up far too easily.

    Check for heavy oil consumption and any form of gearbox fault. The Yamaha YZF-R6's instruments are comprehensive for the era and include an extra trip meter triggered by the fuel reserve.

    Above average underseat storgage, good headlights, passable mirrors. Yamaha YZF-R6 gets new swingarm, fuel injection replaces carbs, revised frame, five-spoke wheels. Read what they have to say and what they like and dislike about the bike below. Overall very average for a used cc. Amazing motor but everything else is poor. Prone to gear box and electrical issues. No low range or mid range power. The R6 build quality is shabby, thin low quality fairing yes as standard.

    My Verdict is the Honda CBR F3 98 model is comfier a tad slower but not much, makes every day riding easy, if your wanting this R6 as an everyday bike go for it, I'm only 5ft6 and I didn't find it cramped in any way.

    Infact this is more comfy to ride than a SRAD. Very quick for a pre-injection ! Oh and lets face it the 5EB is the best looking pre cc supersports.

    Bought privately for in red. Average mileage but overall a very clean bike. My first big bike. Handles well, deliveres all the power when you need it. I was still on my restricted 33bhp licence when I purchased this, and the acceleration was good, and overtaking was easy. However, once the restrictor was off this thing turned into a missile! The acceleration is fantastic, and just keeps going and sounds amazing.

    The seat and bars are comfortable enough for a few hours riding. I keep looking at other bikes, but everytime I look at my R6 I can't think of anything better looking in my price range that I'd rather have.

    Hey, I bought my 99 R6 in july and since then i cant get enough, it was my first and the bike is bullet proof, all i can say is amazing!
