This 2012 Yamaha R6 was cutting edge technology prior to the waves of electronic, nannyfied sportbikes that followed from manufactures who have decided what is best for us. All of it’s electronics were designed to improve the riding experience, not mute it with sensors and algorithms that operate on a different playing field than the actual rider. You have to wonder if it was done to actually make the bikes better or for liability issues.

Everyone who loves to ride knows 600’s are the most fun of all the sport bikes because of the reduced gyroscopic effects from the smaller masses spinning in the motor and wheels and tires. The ability to change direction with less rider input is a direct result of this and in general, makes for a better handling motorcycle. The Yamaha that year was top of the heap amongst the 600 Sportbikes. I pulled this description of the features for the bike from Yamaha in 2012:

• Compact, lightweight 67mm x 42.5mm, 599cc DOHC 16-valve,
liquid-cooled titanium-valved four-cylinder has a compression
ratio of 13.1:1, for great response. Domed pistons with valve
cutouts produce a compact combustion chamber.
• Fuel injection mapping for the YCC-T—Yamaha Chip Controlled
Throttle dual-injector system complements the high compression
ratio for great throttle response and reduced engine braking.
• YCC-I—Yamaha Chip Controlled Intake electronically varies
intake tract length for a broader powerband.
• A magnesium subframe removes weight from the rear of the
motorcycle for increased mass centralization.
• YCC-T uses a powerful ECU and multiple sensors to provide
perfect, smooth engine response and optimal power whenever
the throttle is twisted under all conditions.
• Twin-injector fuel injection: shower-type injectors above each
intake funnel help achieve optimum fuel atomization at high rpm.
• Slipper-type back torque-limiting clutch greatly facilitates
braking and downshifting from high speed. Close-ratio
six-speed transmission delivers seamless power and
maximum acceleration.
• GP-style titanium muffler contributes to mass centralization and
contains EXUP for a broad powerband, and 02 sensor for spot-on
injection and emissions compliance.
• Linerless, direct-plated ceramic-composite cylinder bores
mean greater heat dissipation for consistent power delivery and
reduced friction.
• Cool magnesium valve and engine covers are light and stylish.
• Direct-ignition coils, dual-electrode spark plugs and high-output
