    Compact engine allows for optimum engine placement in the frame for desired weight distribution and great handling  
 Closed loop, 41 mm Mikuni throttle body fuel injection system with twin injectors  
    Twin injector (primary and secondary) system is used on our motogp M1 race bike and YZF-R1  
    Primary injectors are located in the throttle bodies, secondary injectors located in the air box very near the computer controlled intake funnels  
    Both primary and secondary injectors utilize 12 spray holes to maximize the atomization process  
    Secondary injectors, located inside the air box, begin to function at mid rpms (6,000 to 7,000 rpm) thru to redline  
    Special short intake tracts enhance higher rpm power  
    "Closed loop system" uses an oxygen sensor to "sniff" spent exhaust gases and automatically adjusts the fuel / air ratio for reduced emissions  
    Fuel injection benefits include instant throttle response, choke-free starting, steady idle during warm up and reduced emissions  
 Yamaha Chip Control Throttle (YCC-T) system  
    YCC-T electronically controls throttle valves for outstanding throttle response and controllability  
    System features throttle position sensor (TPS) and D.C. motor driven throttle valves  
    YCC-T system provides precise control of intake air volume for a smoother torque curve  
    ECU that controls YCC-T is capable of responding to changes at a speed of 1,000th of a second  
 Yamaha Chip Controlled Intake (YCC-I) system  
    Intake funnels / stacks move between 2 -preset positions depending on engine rpm  
    Transition rpm is approximately 13,500 rpms; funnel movement takes less than 0.3 of a second  
    Electronic servo motor controls the funnels / stacks  
    YCC-I provides the best of both worlds; solid low rpm torque and power combined with an amazing high rpm rush  
 Yamaha "D-Mode" variable throttle control system... 3 modes available  
    Enables rider to adjust the performance characteristics of the engine based on riding preferences or conditions  
    Standard mode offers throttle response well suited to a variety of riding conditions, emphasizing linear throttle control  
    A-mode enhances throttle response allowing riders to enjoy even sportier engine performance  
    B-mode offers softer, slower throttle response well suited for wet or slippery riding conditions  
 Traction control system... 5 modes available plus off  
    Works in conjunction with the YCC-T system and utilizes same wheel sensors as ABS system  
    System senses when the rear wheel begins to spin and modifies the throttle opening, ignition timing and fuel injection duration to reduce power until wheel spin matches the chosen setting  
    5 modes plus off: minimal to maximum intervention as per rider choice. Maximum intervention is well suited for slippery conditions  
    TCS button is handlebar mounted; status indicator / warning light in meter assembly  
 7.6 litre air box utilizes a high flow viscous paper type air filter  
 Ram air induction system  
    Features centrally located intake duct delivering cool, "force-fed" air which pressures the air box and increases power output at higher speeds  
    Straight shot induction from centrally located fairing duct to air box without bends or turns

 Slipper or back limiter clutch assembly  
    Reduces the effects of engine braking and improves rear wheel control by eliminating rear wheel hop or chatter when down shifting under hard braking  
 Wet sump oil lubrication system with liquid-cooled oil cooler  
    Oil quantity has been optimized to reduce internal frictional loses caused by "oil drag"  
    Liquid-cooled oil cooler ensures consistent engine temperatures for maximum performance and extended service life  
 High capacity cooling system.  
    Curved radiator provides more surface cooling area than a flat rad for excellent cooling efficiency  
    Ring-type fan provides increased airflow (and cooling) versus a standard cooling fan  
 Maintenance-free Transistor Controlled Ignition (TCI)  
    Produces a strong spark for fast starts  
    Provides precise ignition timing / mapping for optimum engine performance at all rpms  
 Direct ignition coils, iridium dual electrode spark plugs and high-output magneto  
    Ignition coils are integrated into plug caps, significantly reducing weight and complexity  
 "Mid ship" 4-into-2-into-1 exhaust system  
    Maximizes engine performance and centralizes mass for light, agile handling  
    Header pipe diameter and length have been optimized for optimum flow  
    System features three, 3-way honeycomb catalyzers to reduce exhaust emissions. The oxygen sensor provides feedback to the ECU so it can adjust for the optimum fuel / air mixture. The "mid ship" titanium muffler is located low in the chassis to central mass and lower the center of gravity for incredible handling  
 Yamaha's EXUP system (Exhaust Ultimate Power Valve)  
    Part of the mid ship exhaust system  
    Utilizes a titanium body and butterfly valves that reduce the "blow back" phenomenon caused by "valve overlap"  
    Design reduces weight and maximizes cornering clearance  
    EXUP system helps eliminates "flat spots" in the power band and reduces emissions  
 High powered 32 bit electronic control unit actually contains three ecus to control the FI system, YCC-T and YCC-I systems and ignition mapping  
 Air injection system (AIS... not ram air) injects fresh air into exhaust ports to fully burn any unburnt fuel, further reducing exhaust emissions  
Chassis / Suspension
 Compact, lightweight aluminum Deltabox frame offers an optimized rigidity balance for incredibly light and agile handling  
    MotoGP inspired innovation that Yamaha calls a "straight frame concept", meaning top spars of the frame lie as close to possible to the frame's torsional axis (the line connecting the head pipe to the swingarm pivot point)  
    Ram air duct passes through the frame at the head pipe for a straight ram air effect  
    Mix of mold castings and pressed aluminum plates make up the frame  
    Engine is a fully stressed chassis member allowing for a super-light main frame design  
 New, slim design detachable CF die cast magnesium rear sub frame  
    Sub-frame is 20 mm narrower at seat - tank junction  
    New narrower sub-frame works in conjunction with new seat for quick, easy rider movements  
    Detachable design allows easier rear shock access and can be replaced in the event of damage  
 Lightweight, aluminum "gull wing" type swingarm  
    Lightweight design reduces unsprung weight for superior suspension performance  
    Mix of castings and pressed plates for optimum rigidity  
    Swingarm pivot position has been optimized to reduce the "squat" tendencies caused by drive chain reaction to hard throttle openings  
    Excellent rear wheel traction and control  
 Key chassis geometry figures:  
    1,380 mm wheelbase, 24 degree caster angle, 97 mm of trail and a 52.5% front and 47.5% rear weight distribution  
    57 degree maximum lean angle

    Incredible suspension performance with excellent "feedback"  
    Inverted design benefits include; reduced "unsprung" weight, reduced fork flex since the larger diameter tubes are gripped in the triple clamps and optimized rigidity  
    Adjustments include: spring preload, high speed compression damping, low speed compression damping and rebound damping. Settings are specific to the R6.  
    All adjusters are located on top of the fork caps for fast, easy access  
    Adjustments allow the rider to tune suspension to match riding style and road or track conditions  
    New, 25 mm front axle  
 Revised, fully adjustable Monocross link rear suspension utilizes a new KYB piggyback shock with 120 mm (4.7 in.) of wheel travel.  
    Adjustments include: spring preload, high and low speed compression damping and rebound damping adjustability  
    Piggyback design allows room for adjusters and helps to keep the shock cooler for consistent damping performance
