2017 Yamaha YZF-R6 unveiled. Its radical !

Yamaha Motor Europe has unveiled the 2017 YZF-R6 at the AIMExpo in Orlando, Florida. The new motorcycle looks very similar to its elder sibling, the R1. The motorcycle gets more aerodynamic bodywork with LED lighting, integrated front turn signals, a new aluminum fuel tank and an R1-style tail section.

The chassis is borrowed from the current R6, with the same geometry. The new design has increased aerodynamic efficiency by 8 per cent, claims Yamaha.
