2012 Yamaha FZ6R Review

2012 Yamaha FZ6R
The 2012 Yamaha FZ6R offer features that make it easy for beginning riders to get started: a low seat height, grips that reach back to you, and a torquey, 600cc engine you won't outgrow anytime soon. Add a beautiful diamond-steel frame, a sleek fairing, a Yamaha R6 style exhaust and a price that makes it way more affordable than it looks, and it all adds up to the ultimate first sportsbike.

The 2012 Yamaha FZ6R fits perfectly into the less intense sport bike world with its easy to control power, light weight and low seat height. A slim compact chassis complements the fuel injected engine and its very linear throttle control. No lap records here, just a bike that inspires rider confidence and is a blast to ride.

2012 Yamaha FZ6R Key Features :
  • Fuel Consumption ± 18.1kpl/51.5mpg(Imp)
  • Fuel injected, 600cc, DOHC, 4-valve, in-line 4 tuned for fun and ease of use
  • Sporty styling and low seat height
