It is a sport bike in no way claim the transcendental, but a bike that will leave you smiling after every ride. Maybe you just started in motorcycling or have been around long enough to recognize that fun is not always determined by engine size or horsepower.

2012 Yamaha FZ6R

Somewhere between cruisers and supersport bikes exists a genre simply known as "sports" bikes.

The FZ6R fits perfectly into the world of sport bike less intense with its easy to use power, low weight and low seat height. A thin and compact chassis to complement the fuel injection engine and very linear acceleration. No lap records here, just a bike rider confidence and is a blast to drive.

Innovative features include adjustable seat height FZ6R it easy for beginners to start.

The 2012 Yamaha FZ6R offers features that make it easy for beginning riders to get started: low seat height, grips that come back to you, and a torquey, 600cc engine, not exceeding in the short term. Add a beautiful diamond steel frame, a sleek fairing, an exhaust Yamaha R6-style and a price that makes it much more affordable than it looks, and everything leads to the latter's first supersport.

2012 Yamaha FZ6R prominent and important features:

Fuel ± 18.1kpl/51.5mpg (Imp)

Fuel injection, 600 cc, DOHC, 4 valves, in line 4 tuned for fun and ease of use

A sporty and low seat height

Key Features:

• A broker in the market for an entry level or 600 cc bike commuter does not have to compromise performance or style to get the value. The FZ6R is a great combination of performance, handling, and exciting sport bike style, but also with a low seat height that is well suited to a wide variety of riders and also narrower where it has to be adjusted even easier to both feet on the ground.

• The engine offers smooth power as today's pilot needs a strong acceleration with plenty of torque that makes it a pleasure to walk around town, with plenty in reserve for when you want more. This is certainly not a "no frills" motor. Derived from the FZ6R engine, fuel injected and tuned for low slope with mid engine performance.

• While your main goal is the movement from school or work, you want to be able to go out and have fun riding some twisty roads. The FZ6R is ready to bring a smile on your face! The diamond-shaped frame made of tubular steel with high resistance to traction by the motor as a structural part of the chassis, is the basis for the treatment of the performance. It is designed to provide the right rigidity balance to contribute to smooth cornering.

• When it comes to introduction of energy in the pavement, the new FZ6R uses nothing less than quality radial tires, 120/70R 17-inch front and 160/60R 17-inch rear. And the performance of this bike excellent stop are two 298 mm front discs and 245 mm rear disc, both with comfortable to use controls.
2012 Yamaha FZ6R Features and Benefits


Ultra-compact, 600 cc, liquid cooled, DOHC, 16 valves, angle block line four engine. This engine is specially designed for the comfort of driving with a very linear power characteristics.

Compact 4-valve per cylinder valve has 22 mm intake valves and exhaust 25mmm. Closely particular input channel results increases the air speed in a more linear throttle response.

Lightweight hollow camshafts provide excellent torque in the midrange and low, and also help to achieve linear accelerator. Fuel consumption has also been optimized.

Hydraulic automatic cam chain tensioner reduces engine noise and maintenance mechanic.

A piece of the cylinder, and the upper assembly of the motor housing and provides superior chassis stiffness and weight reduction.

Ceramic composite cylinder bore silver sleeveless greater heat dissipation for consistent power delivery and reduced friction losses. Sleeveless design also reduces weight.

Lightweight forged pistons connected to carburized connecting rods for superior strength and reduced reciprocating mass for crisp throttle response and reduced vibration.

"Group-Type" Mikuni 32 mm throttle body fuel injection provides outstanding throttle response and excellent fuel economy. Group fuel injection four-cylinder divides into two groups (1 and 4 and 2 and 3) with two injections of fuel per 720 degrees of crankshaft rotation.

Compact "high dynamic range" uses 4 hole injectors / 2-Way spray nozzles for excellent acceleration, lower emissions and great fuel economy.

A powerful and compact 32-bit ECU controls ignition and injection processes.

Compact slant of the engine block using a "Tri-Axis" stacked 6-speed engine design shorter (from front to back), which allows optimum engine placement as part of a balanced weight distribution and great handling created.

"Inner pulse" type clutch clutch release mechanism offers a very light and smooth action.

Shifter design and the design provides smooth shifting and positive.

Compact 4 into 2 into 1 "midship" exhaust system features a stylish 3-way catalyst that reduces harmful exhaust emissions (CO, HC, CO2 and NOx). The result is very clean running engine that easily surpasses strict EPA and EU emission standards in Europe.

This "midship" style exhaust mass is concentrated in the center of the bike and keep the center of gravity low for light agile handling at any speed.

High-capacity radiator with ring-type fan ensures maximum cooling.

Liquid cooled oil cooler maintains a constant temperature of engine oil and extended oil life.

Useful for spin-on type oil filter.

Maintenance-free transistor-controlled ignition ensures fast starts and optimum engine performance.

Air induction system (AIS) reduces harmful hydrocarbons and carbon monoxide (HC & CO).

Chassis / Suspension

2012 Yamaha FZ6R

"Diamond-like", a tubular frame of high tensile steel is used. Main frame tubes of diameter 31.5 and equipped with a minimum of bends and welding. Rigidity around the steering head and swingarm pivot is optimized for excellent handling and stability.

This design helps keep the framework of the lower seat height (785 mm / 30.1 ") in the 600 class sports.

The motor is mounted on the seat frame 4 so that a tension frame support and improve the handling characteristics.

A box-section steel swingarm complements the structure and helps provide a sense of light management.

Removable rear subframe steel reduces costs in the case of a "walk-out".

41mm conventional cartridge-type fork provides great handling and excellent ride comfort. Plastic protectors help prevent tube damage from stone chips. Wheel travel is 130 mm (5.1 ").

"Link less" means that the wheel suspension damper is connected directly to the rear frame and the rear, without the use of compounds. The rear suspension system is designed to provide a sense of rising rates, without the additional weight of the lift arms and pivots. The shock is provided with seven times the spring pre-tension adjustment. Wheel travel is 130 mm (5.1 ")

Two 298 mm front discs are squeezed by a floating piston calipers twins. Braking performance is progressive and feel of the lever is excellent.

245mm rear disc with single piston caliper provides excellent stopping power.

Complete cab offers plenty of protection from wind and rain. An inner panel around the instrument area provides a clean and quality for the "cockpit".

Elegant 17 liters (3.7 Imp gal.) Fuel tank provides excellent driving range between refueling point.

Lightweight 5-spoke mag wheels are fitted with a revised Z radial tires, unsprung weight reduction of light, agile handling.

Style two-piece driver and passenger seat design offers excellent comfort. The driver portion of the seat is adjustable. The default position is the lowest (785 mm / 30.9 ") with a power position to match the driver's seat to an increase of 20 mm or ¾ inch.

Adjustable handlebar design. The Yamaha FZ6R traditional 7/8 "steel wheel not only provides a comfortable, more upright riding, but can also be adjusted from 20 mm (about ¾ inch) forward by turning the mounting brackets 180 degrees . traditional handlebar design also makes it easily possible to substitute a different "curve" when desired.

FZ1 inspired multi-function instrument cluster. Other features include an analog tachometer, digital speedometer, dual trip meters, clock, fuel gauge and fuel tripmeter plus a wide range of warning lights.
