Say goodbye to the R6's...

Well ... I really liked the body style of these bikes too!

This is another article with the same news.

Link: https://www.cyclenews.com/2020/11/ar...ed-after-2020/

Quote:
Yamaha USA has announced the 2020 model year will be the last for the Yamaha YZF-R6, as the model will be discontinued in the USA and Europe.

Buried deep within a new model press release issued by the company was an ominous paragraph relating to the Yamaha YZF-R6, VMAX, WR250R, and SMAX.

“With deep consideration of evolving global market trends and regulations that limit production volumes on certain models, the following Yamaha models will be discontinued after model year 2020: YZF-R6, VMAX, WR250R, and SMAX.

“Yamaha understands the iconic history of these models. Regarding the future, Yamaha is continuously looking at new ideas and concepts to support and expand the market, as well as enhance our customers’ experiences.

“Consumers can contact their local Yamaha dealer on the remaining model year 2020 availability of these discontinued models.”

It’s a sad and rather quiet departure for the machine regarded by any a tester (myself included) as one of the finest Yamaha’s ever created, but its demise comes as a result of strict Euro 5 emissions regulations and with Europe now no longer selling the model, Yamaha in Japan can’t justify selling the R6 in North America.

The YZF-R6 was still a good performer for Yamaha USA in the sales charts, however, numbers had steadily dwindled since the heyday of sportbikes in the early to mid-2000s, and when Yamaha released the 2017 R6 that had fancy new clothes but not a lot of new tech, the writing was already on the wall for the much-loved machine.

The Yamaha YZF-R6 debuted one year after the YZF-R1 in 1999, going on to become the instant benchmark of the supersport category. The model was responsible for debuting a number of key Yamaha innovations, including the Yamaha Chip Controlled Throttle (YCCT) and Yamaha Chip Controlled Intake (YCCI) systems with the landmark 2006 R6, a machine so good, you can directly trace the current 2020 R6 back to that model in both chassis and engine architecture.

The demise of the Yamaha YZF-R6 leaves Yamaha with no middleweight sportbike—either in twin-cylinder or supersport form—with only the YZF-R3 and YZF-R1 (a jump of 40 hp for the R3 to 190 hp for the R1) on sale. That leaves a massive hole in Yamaha’s line-up, and we have yet to hear of any word as to what the company will do to fix it.

This is a sad day for sportbike lovers around the world, as we say farewell to one of the finest sports motorcycles ever created in the Yamaha YZF-R6.

I know!

I was thinking about buying one for a track bike, but now I am thinking the prices will sky rocket since it will no longer be

Guess I'll be looking for something else. Last thing I need, is the parts department telling me they no longer carry something.

Thats very sad to see.

One thought of mine is " I can't wait to see what will be new in the line-up in a few years." Either a new 600 taking its place, or a new exciting line of different displacement machines. The other thought, (being realistic about today's emissions in global markets) afraid to see what "affordably sporty"low revving in line twins, or whatever lawnmower powered bikes we will be subjected to, replacing the screaming in line 4s.

That would be scary...

I don't think that'll happen though, well, as long as there is a need for fossil fuels. I think the motorcycle world will only get better from here on out.

The price will not sky rocket. There is far too many in circulation. Also they’re continuing selling a track/race version. This will be readily available to the public for those wishing to purchase. They will have different levels to choose from. All GYTR.

The R6 has been dominating since 08. They new style 17+ is a better bike and not old. It has the bigger diameter (R1) forks, slightly different swing arm, electronics and of course the body. Bike is pretty good right out of the box and has been dominating the 600 class up until this last year where Kawasaki won the supersport MotoAmerica championship. As for club racing, the R6 has won and will continue to win more than any other manufacture.

Had a quick look at the Euro regulation. Categories exempt are below

“Pure electric vehicle or vehicle propelled with compressed air (CA) or Hydrogen Fuel cell vehicle”


In other words just another tool for driving electrification of vehicles. Message is make it electric and do what you want. I am somewhat curious about the compressed air category, sounds like could be fun

I think electric is pretty cool, but a good ol sound of a combustible motor, is a HUGE part of racing... It's breaking tradition if they ever completely do away with fossil fuel engines.
