Firing order : similar to R1

Weight: less than 350 lbs

Looks: complete overhaul - R1 stylings


look for the complete shakedown in IronHorse Magazine when the time comes...

Hrm, I'm willing to bet that it will still be an I4. I guess we'll see in Sept.

time to save $$$$$

YAMAHA'S R6 has been a success since the day it was launched, journalists rated them, racers won on them and they've been selling well every year.
However, in its fourth year, the mighty R6 needs to pull something special out for 2010 to keep one-step ahead of the game. Rumours have floated around that the 2010 Yamaha YZF-R6 will feature a cross-plane crank but this is unlikely. However we have heard that one of the main missions for the 2010 Yamaha YZF-R6 is to shed weight, we're expecting a sub-175kg wet weight.
Yamaha have not officially commented on the 2010 R6 but the R1 project leader, Toyoshi Nishida has all but quashed the cross-plane crank R6 rumours.
The cross-plane engine design was brought in for the litre-class to enable the rider to get the available power down with more feedback. With the 600 class, riders use full throttle more of the time and the counter-balancer necessary with the cross-plane arrangement would sap power, so it wouldn’t be the most efficient way to provide a better connection and rider feel for traction on a 600.
However, Nishida has said that Yamaha have worked on new engine technology that doesn't involve electronics but does aid rear traction under power and it's likely this will be introduced on the 2010 Yamaha YZF-R6.
So no cross-plane crank but it's likely the new R6 won't just be a standard inline-four. Exciting times for supersport fans.

Sweeeeeeeeeeet!




I love when the new bikes come out, the new tech, and advancements, plus how it drives down the cost of previous generations.

the time to buy a 600 will be 2011-12 cuz Moto2 will be replacing 250GP in 2010 and you will see all the tech R&D from those 600's trickle down into the production bonks.......indeed time to start saving

2009 r6's got bad reviews compared to the other 600's if Yamaha steps up its game I will get a 2010

I still consider 2004 to be the best year for a dual duty r6

The dealer convention is suppose to be this month, where they go over the new models for 2010...i wonder if they'll let the cat out of the bag.
