Yamaha Chip Controlled Throttle (YCC-T) system
The Yamaha Chip Controlled Throttle (YCC-T) system provides you with pinpoint accuracy and an unprecedented level of control to push yourself as you define speed. The precise throttle valve opening is calculated and intake volume is controlled in real time to give you the thrust exactly as you intended.

New Adjustable Traction Control System (TCS)
The new YZF-R6 is equipped with a 6-mode adjustable Traction Control System (TCS) that gives more confidence in various road conditions and provides freedom in a wide range of rider preferences. This state-of-the-art system modulates throttle opening, ignition timing and fuel volume seamlessly with minimal disruption to forward drive which is virtually unnoticeable by the rider.

New Selectable Drive Mode (D-Mode)
The 2017 YZF-R6 users are now given full flexibility to choose the ideal engine character for various riding situations. It is equipped with Yamaha’s D-Mode system which offers three throttle valve control maps (Standard Mode, “A-Mode, and “B-Mode”) with different throttle response settings for absolute adaptability in just one click.

Powerful New Brakes with Anti-Lock Braking System(ABS)
Sheer speed requires remarkable braking power. That’s the reason why the 2017 YZF-R6 inherits the braking prowess of the YZF-R1 with larger 320mm dual front disc brakes, matched to radial-mount four-piston calipers and a Nissin® radial-mount master cylinder. To top it all off, now it is equipped with ABS for maximum control as you decelerate in unfavorable road conditions.

Yamaha’s Chip Controlled Intake (YCC-I)
With a multitude of high-tech electronic systems, the YZF-R6 is the most sophisticated 600 supersport bike Yamaha has ever created. The YZF-R6 features Yamaha’s Chip Controlled Intake (YCC-I) which makes for a broader, more tractable powerband while contributing to optimum efficiency.

Upside Down Front Forks (USD)
The 2017 YZF-R6 is now even closer to YZF-R1 as it shares the same advanced KYB® front telescopic forks which are then specifically tuned. These 43mm Upside Down beasts ensure top of its class front-end feel and experience while offering maximum adjustability.

Quick Shift System (QSS)
The YZF-R6 bears all the characteristics of Yamaha’s thoroughbred R-Series DNA. At its very core is speed and precision control. And to help you push even harder is the Quick Shift System (QSS) which enables clutchless upshifts for your unlimited appetite for speed.
