If it was just an unintentional miscommunication between marketing and engineering, how did the tach get involved? As I recall, the excrement hit the fan when it was found that the Yamaha tach was indicating 17,500, while actual revs measured independently was 16,200. Is that not correct, testers?

Thought this was old news. Didn't Yamaha offer to buy back these bikes including taxes and fees from any disatisfied owners?

Who gives ratÂ’s behind! If all the techno junkies spent as much time riding their motorcycles as they do wining about some insignificant technical misinterpretations, they could be out there actually enjoying real life. At the end of the day probably 30% of R6 riders are capable of hanging on at 12000rpm let alone having the potential to take them out to 17500rpm.

Default if you're riding on the street...

who cares...17,500 revs on the illegal side of the law!



v-twin torque = instant speed



I equate revving the nuts off a bike to get power to jiggling the handle of a condom machine when the supermodel loses interest while waiting and leaves...the moment is gone forever.



By the time you downshift and twist, I'm gone and around the next bend in my 18 year old hawk gt.

Speaking of the R6, were our happy MOrons excluded from the Demo at Willow Springs recently? 2wf and Motorcycle Daily have their impressions up for a week now.

It matters to them because at only 16,200 rpm the new R6 is clearly just a girls bike and is probably a really good bike for begginers too. Yep, it now has the stigma of being an entry level bike.
