2013 Yamaha YZF-R6 Specs and Price - 2013 Yamaha YZF-R6 was born on the racetrack that is tuned to provide the kind of outstanding engine and chassis performance usually reserved for professional riders. Of racing at the track in a short time to conquer the urban maze in real time, the 2013 YZF-R6 turns heads as easily as any angle. And do everything perfectly. Lightweight, powerful, and equipped with almost every latest innovations, this hotel has a chassis, which allows it taut melodic maneuvers from upright to full lean instantly – and carve tight, the line perfectly.
2013 Yamaha YZF-R6 has Ultra-compact, lightweight, short stroke, 599cc, DOHC, 16-valve, liquid-cooled, in-line four-cylinder with lightweight titanium valves produces incredible horsepower. Redline is set at an amazing 16,000 rpm. 67mm bore and 42.5mm stroke provide a fast revving powerplant. Engine width is minimized thanks to Yamaha’s special casting technologies and “liner less” cylinder design. Compact “pent roof” cylinder head design features ultra lightweight titanium valves for both intake and exhaust. Intake valve angle is 11.5 degrees and the exhaust is 12.25 degress. Intake valves are 27mm in diameter while the exhaust valves are 23mm.
With a single intake valve springs reduce weight and “friction” for optimum high rpm performance. The followers of the valve is made of lightweight aluminum. High flow intake and exhaust ports allow more fuel in and more exhaust out for great power delivery at all rpms. Separate cylinder block (the cylinder is not part of the upper crankcase) design utilizes ceramic composite plated “liner less” cylinder bores. The ceramic coating is sprayed directly on the aluminum block. The benefits of greater heat dissipation for consistent power delivery, reduced frictional power loss, reduced oil consumption and since there are no heavy liners, reduced weight too.
Mikuni fuel injection system with 41mm throttle bodies features twin injectors (primary & secondary). Type of twin injector system is also found on our MotoGP M1 machine and the latest generation R1. Each injector utilizes 12 spray holes to maximize the atomization process. The secondary injectors, located inside the air box, begin to function at mid rpms (6,000 to 7,000 rpm) thru to redline. Special short intake tracts allow for higher rpms and improved power.
Deltabox lightweight aluminum frame chassis offers optimized total rigidity balance for very light and agile handling. This frame is a MotoGP inspired innovation that Yamaha calls a “straight frame concept”. This means the top spars of the frame lie as close as possible to the frame’s torsional axis (the line connecting the head pipe to the swingarm pivot point). The ram air duct passes through the frame at the head pipe for a straight ram air effect too. A mixture of mold castings and pressed aluminum plates make the frame. The engine is a fully stressed chassis member allowing for a super-light frame design.
Front forks 2013 Yamaha YZF-R6 Fully adjustable 41mm inverted providing 115mm (4.5 “) of wheel travel and offers incredible suspension performance with ultra-precise feedback Adjustments include:. 5-way spring preload, 4-way high speed compression damping , 20-way compression low speed rebound damping and 25 way damping inverted design not only reduces unsprung weight but also increases the rigidity of the fork. adjustment range allows the rider to tune suspension to match riding style and conditions .
With 4-piston calipers 2013 Yamaha YZF-R6 suppress large 310mm dual front discs. Radial mounting design helps to reduce caliper distortion for improved braking performance with excellent control and good lever feedback. Operator disc made of aluminum to reduce weight while the sinter metal pads provide incredible stopping power. Brembo radial pump master cylinder features a 16mm piston. The radial design allows for feedback brake lever is stronger and better. The lever is adjustable for various hand sizes.
