YZF-R6 Stop Production

 Yamaha R6 Stop Production

Yamaha has announced that the venerable YZF-R6 will be phased out after the 2020 model year, after 21 years. This follows the announcement today that the V Star 250, Bolt R-Spec, XSR700 and XSR900, Super Ténéré ES, FJR1300ES, Star Venture, and XMAX will all be renewed for 2021 with what we call – Bold New Graphics in the moto-journo biz (BNG).

However, considering looming Euro5 restrictions and the languishing status of sportbike sales, particularly in the 600cc supersport category, the shock revelation of the R6's demise may not be so shocking after all. Yamaha executives apparently did not believe it was worthwhile to update and/or enhance the Euro4 R6 to satisfy the more demanding Euro5 specifications.

Why did Yamaha Discontinue the R6

The news originally came from Europe, where Yamaha announced that it would no longer produce the Yamaha YZF-R6 for the European market due to the high expenses of Euro5 homologation and the declining number of supersport models sold in the region each year. Then, as a concluding thought in a much larger press statement from Yamaha Motor USA, the news arrived. The Yamaha YZF-R6 will be discontinued in the United States in 2020, according to the company.

The YZF-R6 will be available in a track-only variant in Europe, which is a silver lining for our European readers. The model, which will be released in January 2021, will be a stripped-down YZF-R6 with a GYTR track kit.

It is unclear whether a similar offering will be offered for the American market at this time. Today's news about the Yamaha YZF-R6 comes as a surprise because it comes at a time when new models are usually unveiled rather than old ones being retired.

Yamaha's newest supersport is a return to form, with specs that aren't really shocking but are nonetheless pleasant. This new R7 features the same 689cc liquid-cooled parallel twin engine as the current MT-07. When compared to a V-twin, this CP2 motor is efficient, compact, and minimizes mass without sacrificing power. It's been around for a while, but it's proven to be such a popular design that Yamaha decided to create a few bikes based on it.
