2001 Yamaha R6 Specification

2001 Yamaha YZF-R6

The 2001 Yamaha R6 is an Update from The previous First Gen Of R6. In it's debut season, the YZF-R6 was named 1999's "Best 600cc Streetbike" by Cycle World. Sport Rider awarded it "Bike of the Year."

In an encore performance, it won Motorcyclists' 600 shoot-out in 2000 and captured Sport Rider's middleweight crown. Almost unheard of in this highly competitive category. The R6 received perfect "10's" for engine power delivery, suspension, brakes and the fun-to-ride category. It received 9's and 9.5's in every other.

From the very start the R6 had but one purpose: total domination. Its ultra-compact, ram-air-inducted, short-stroke in-line four makes for one of the most hellacious powerbands in supersport motorcycling. Can you say 15,500 rpm? (14,500 for California models). Its class-shortest wheelbase and featherweight Deltabox II-framed chassis delivers lightning-quick handling and precision that rivals our own TZ250.

To stay atop the 600 Super Sport class, for 2001 the R6 receives numerous refinements to enhance performance and function.

A new, ultra-sleek, R1-like tailsection reduces drag for improved aerodynamics and greater top speed, while a newly designed license plate/rear turn signal bracket provide easy removal for competition.

In the engine department, new lightweight forged pistons and carburized connecting rods provide reduced reciprocating mass and superb strength. Revised carburetor settings deliver greater power output from idle all the way up to redline.

Redesigned, lightweight, aluminum clip-on bars provide improved comfort and superior handling.

Topping it all off are weight-reducing refinements which shed approximately 5 pounds from this already super light package.

For 2001, there's also an R6 Champions Limited Edition model which includes special paint scheme and stamped aluminum authenticity plate signifying the bike's limited production number.

The 2001 YZF-R6. The 600 they'll continue to call "Superbike."
