Remapped: 2009 Yamaha YZF-R6


The 2009 Yamaha YZF-R6, with remapped YCC-T. What, you expected more?!

While the 2009 R1 has been blessed with a new engine, new chassis and new electronics, the 2009 R6 gets… new colour schemes! Well, pretty much. Oh, it also gets a remapped engine control unit (ECU), which has revised YCC-T settings for optimized power delivery. Expect smoother, more linear power when exiting medium- to high-speed bends on your R6. And the machine’s brilliant top-end performance has also been kept intact.

Apart from the black, blue/white and red/white paintjobs above, the 2009 YZF-R6 is also available in US-spec orange and white – see below. Prices start at US$9,990. More details on the official Yamaha website here

I don't see how the other makes can even hope to compete with the R6 in 2009...and I mean purely based on looks.

We all know looks can be deceiving, and that obviously just because the R6 looks good, doesn't mean it IS good...but DAMN!

That LOOKS GOOD!

If I was a squid...I'd buy one based on looks alone...
