Yamaha brings also for 2022 the R6 as a race track version on the market, besides also again a GYTR version is offered.
The R6 as a street version has disappeared from the European market, as it could no longer meet the necessary Euro homologation. However, it is still available for sale as a pure racetrack version without road approval.
Yamaha R6 RACE
At the heart of the R6 RACE is still the familiar 599cc four-cylinder, which is equipped with lightweight forged pistons and titanium valves. Yamaha does not give power figures, so it can be assumed that it will continue to deliver the 118 PS at 14,500 rpm and 65.7 Nm at 10,500 rpm.
The R6 Race is equipped with Yamaha Chip Controlled Intake (YCC-I), Yamaha Chip Controlled Throlle (YCC-T), anti-hopping clutch, close-ratio 6-speed transmission and quickshifter. At the front, a 43 mm KYB upside-down fork damps and at the rear the KYB shock absorber, both fully adjustable.
The R6 Race is offered exclusively in Tech Black with gold fork.
Yamaha R6 GYTR
The Genuine Yamaha Technology Racing version of the R6 is sold exclusively through GYTR Pro Shops. It is aimed at hobby racers to licensed riders and has been upgraded with numerous racing components.
The Racing wiring harness saves weight, the Superstock ECU is programmable via an interface, the Akrapovic titanium racing exhaust system produces a maximum of 100 dB, otherwise there are covers for the air intake system to remove various hoses and components in the intake area, Racing sprockets with a special 520 chain, steel braided brake lines and a GYTR ABS emulator that allows the removal of the ABS system.
The carbon fiber reinforced GRP racing fairing comes with a white primer.
