R6 outrunning superbikes! - February 15, 2006, 05:23 PM

This is a quote from Superbikeplanet's soup section about the new R6.

Uh, before you do that, those enthusiasts capable of independent thought might want to consider that the R6 is unquestionably the star 600 of the new year—redline issues or not.

Honestly we here at Soup were skeptical of the 17.5k redline all along, or at least we were after we heard DiSalvo's R6 on the banking at Daytona last December during the Dunlop test. Because it didn't sound like the R6 was red-lining at 17,500 rpm—it sounded like it was red-lining at 280,000,000,000 rpm. And I only stopped at that number because I grew tired of pushing the zero key on my keyboard. The sound that R6 made on the banking was unlike any bike's howl I've heard in fifteen years of going to Daytona. At speed the Yamaha R6 FX bike sounded unholy, like the opening scream on Led Zeppelin's Immigrant Song. It stopped you in your tracks, made your head whip around like it was mounted on a turret. It sounded "too real" like my kids said after they watched 1999's The Mummy.

Another bit of info that seemingly disgruntled 2006 R6 owners may want to consider before they roll the bike back to the dealership is that last week at the Fontana test, DiSalvo's FX-spec R6 wasn't "almost as fast a Superbike" or "a few ticks slower on the stop watch than the Superbikes" as FX bikes have been for years; it was, in fact, faster than several factory Superbikes. A 600. Faster than Superbikes. Pretty landmark motorcycle in stock or modified form, I'd say.

Never thought I'd see the day that a 600 was outrunning a Superbike! DAYUM!


"Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, cigar in one hand, a beer in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally warn out and screaming WHOO HOO! WHAT A RIDE!"

When everything is coming your way, you're in the wrong lane!

Every time we hold our tongues instead of returning the sharp retort, show patience with another's faults, show a little more love and kindness, we are helping to stock-pile more of these peace-bringing qualities in the world instead of armaments for war. -- Constance Foster
