Light weight, big horsepower,
razor-sharp handling and a comfortable cockpit make the R6S an outstanding do-it-all sportbike. Competition-bred suction-piston-type fuel injection with 38mm throttle bodies features short intake ports and a special vacuum-controlled intake system to ensure instant throttle response all the way up to the 15,500-rpm redline. Ultra-compact, lightweight, 600cc liquid-cooled, DOHC 16-valve inline four-cylinder puts out 123 horsepower. Direct ignition coils, dual-electrode spark plugs and high
-output magneto deliver extremely accurate, reliable firing. Compact slant-block engine design uses stacked gearbox shafts to create a balanced weight distribution. Ram-Air Induction System delivers cool, high-pressure air for optimal combustion and greater horsepower. Lightweight forged pistons on carburized connecting rods for superb strength and reduced reciprocating mass. Linerless ceramic-composite cylinder bores mean greater heat dissipation for consistent power delivery and reduced friction. Close-ratio six-speed transmission delivers seamless power and maximum acceleration. Three-axis gearbox design stacks input/output shafts to keep overall engine size to super-compact dimensions. Curved
radiator follows the contour of the frame and bodywork for an ultra-sleek look and excellent cooling performance. One-piece cylinder and crankcase assembly provides superior engine rigidity and light weight. Compact, large-capacity clutch delivers consistent, fade-free performance. Large-capacity water pump, liquid-cooled oil cooler and twin ring-type radiator fans ensure optimal engine cooling efficiency. Four-into-two-into-one aluminum exhaust optimizes engine
performance, reduces overall weight and tucks in high for maximum lean angle. Light and carefully tuned Deltabox III frame and Controlled-Fill swingarm are key to the R6S’s class-leading handling performance and feel. Fully adjustable 43mm fork reinforces R6S’s main strength: precise handling. Forged lower triple clamp also increases rigidity. Fully adjustable (preload, compression and rebound damping) piggyback rear shock with 4.7 inches of travel delivers exceptional
rear wheel tracking and stability. Removable CF die cast rear subframe is light and strong. Super-light five-spoke 17-inch wheels reduce unsprung weight; a special casting technique makes the rim section light, not to mention wickedly cool-looking. Light, 298mm front brake discs, four-piston calipers and radial master cylinder provide unsurpassed braking power and feel. Durable, lightweight, aluminum clip-on bars provide optimal vibration damping. Narrow 4.5
-gallon fuel tank provides excellent rider ergonomics and aggressive seating position. Multifunction digital and analog instrumentation features include: programmable shift light, digital speedometer, analog tachometer, dual tripmeter with miles-on-reserve function, odometer, water temp gauge and lights for neutral, high-beam, low-fuel and turn signals. Dual Gatling beam 60-/55-watt multi-reflector headlight features a sleek profile for superb aerodynamics and visibility. Dual
LED taillight design provides excellent visibility and a sleek profile. Standard tool kit is located in the convenient storage compartment under passenger seat.
