Yamaha R6 Carbon is an exclusively modified version of the motorcycle with additions like Akrapovic titanium exhaust and Carbon-themed body wrap. The overall appeal is so intense that superbike fans cannot hold their eyes away from the motorcycle for a long time. The rear section comes without the fender and thus, the number plate has moved to the lower side of the frame. The motorcycle is seen with Bridgestone Battlax tires and golden-finished rider footpeg section. The Deltabox frame with its iconic weld in the middle is visible on the motorcycle. The front golden forks complement the additions in the most gentle manner.
The salient features like turn mirror-mounted indicators and two projector headlights of the R6 are further highlighted with this theme. Yamaha R6 Carbon is based on the current generation model and flaunts four independent exhaust pipes with pride through the small open section around the centre. However, the fins on the fuel tank are not-so-prominent through the carbon wrap. The front and rear suspension stay stock on the motorcycle while the same can be said for the braking also. The front visor was also wrapped with the same theme, reducing the practical tucking capability of the R6.
Yamaha is using a powerful 599cc, four-cylinder engine on the motorcycle, producing 118.4 HP at 14,500 rpm and 61.7 Nm at 10,500 rpm. The engine comes mated to a 6-speed gearbox. The claimed top speed in the stock form is 262 kph while wet weight tips the scale at 190 kg. The Yamaha R6 Carbon would definitely be lighter than the stock version as the complete exhaust system has been replaced with titanium Akrapovic unit on the motorcycle. The cost of this update is unknown at the moment while Yamaha R6’s official launch in India is still under question. However, the arrival of ZX-6R has improved the scope for sure.
