Yamaha has just released a teaser video of what looks to be the upcoming 2017 Yamaha YZF-R6. The video doesn’t reveal much except for a blurry image of a fully faired bike along with a screaming sound note of the engine. There are also a few other indicators of this motorcycle to be the Yamaha R6. With the Yamaha YZF-R1 soon turning two, the timing suggests it is time for a new Yamaha YZF-R6. Yamaha has gone ahead and posted this teaser video to its website and social media accounts. The video reveals the bare minimum, showing us the rider most of time. However, the race track and the sound of the motorcycle sure are strong giveaways. The R6 sounds like it will continue using an updated version of the inline four flatplane engine.

Impressive Bike ?? ??

The Yamaha R6 is an impressive bike, with a chassis that is a sight to behold. The updated looks, as well as its front end and brakes, make it an incredibly capable middleweight. Despite the reduced peak power due to Euro4 regulations, the R6 still offers a unique experience that is unmatched by any other supersport in the market. Its price tag may be a bit high for a 600, but its performance more than makes up for it. Overall, the Yamaha R6 is an excellent choice for any motorcyclist looking for a powerful, thrilling ride.
