The bigger question: who will be willing to buy the first model year from Yamaha after the 2015 R1/M recall? The Recall thread on the R1 Forum is over 2000 posts long.
yeah and after all of that yamaha's techs put out a video of them saying it really doesn't need done to them. only a race team had one fail under extreme conditions under a downshift.
however others(not yamaha) claimed to know of more.



I did end up getting mine done. however since it was performed at a dealer and supposedly by a tech with the highest level of training certification by yamaha you can achieve, he still botched up a few things that have me pissed off. if yamaha would of set up places like the one in the video with factory techs doing the work I would of felt much better about the situation. but here in the USA we are stuck with dealerships doing the work. who may have employed some jack wad so called mechanic. there have been several botched jobs reported on the forum. mine wasn't botched but he lacked doing several key things that should of NOT been overlooked. even my rear sprocket was about 40% of it's specified torque setting. so who only knows what in the motor isn't done properly.
damn weather will not cooperate so I can test ride it some more. I hope it grenades because I want it replaced.

Re: 2017 r6

I'm hoping we finally get a new R6 for 2017. However, until we hear anything i'm going to assume new graphics...

Wish list?

Ditch the inline 4 and go with a 675cc triple.
ABS (UBS maybe?)
Quickshifter (up AND down...likely be introduced on 2017 R1 as well if we get both)
Launch control
I don't personally think a 600 needs TC/lift control/slide control/power modes but if they want to do the whole electronic suite, why not.
Full colour display similar to the R1

Also, little things like a clamped on muffler box to make after market exhausts easier, speed sensor similar to the R1 so no more speedo calibrations required after gearing changes, forks that don't stick up like giant nipples above the triple just begging to get chewed up in a crash

I'd also be all for an R6M. Full electronic Ohlins, CF fairings, GPS transponder...

New looks would be nice but honestly I still think the R6 is one of the best looking sport bikes so I don't care if they leave that the same. Maybe change the headlights to the 12-14 R1 style projectors and LED strip.

Re: 2017 r6

See.. every time someone posts a thread about the new r6... we get new graphics and a longer exhaust. Stop making new threads. Just let it happen

I'll bet you a Pirelli 180/60 SC1 DOT that it's not just BNG for 2017

Three cylinders! That's the reason I won't be buying it!
Also, I don't think it is going to be a 600 anymore: 700 is the new 600!
And that is assuming they want to push a market not so important right now: I've been riding more than 20 years, and in the last couple of years I've seen a lot of people looking for new alternatives - which I understand - so that's why nakeds and stregth figthers are now so popular and offer so many different options, specially having on count they offer practically the same performance the "sport" ones do.

We will see!
