2017 r6

I think it's happening, you guys... I'll wager that we'll see an updated R6 for 2017. Can't wait!

If there's a new bike I'm gonna have to go ahead and spring for it right away.

What rumors are out there?

It will almost for sure have ABS, but I have no guesses about other features (quickshifter, TC, IMU), or even the cylinder count yet.

Re: 2017 r6

I don't think that it'll look exactly like the new R1's. A Physical update maybe, but it'd be a bad move on yamaha to make their 600 look just like their 1000. As for ABS, most likely, maybe an additional option for a quickshifter. It'd be nice if they added a gear indicator and power modes.

Gear indicators are for chumps. I'm gonna kick over every R6 I see if they add one.

You guys keep asking for one but it will never happen. It doesnt make enough power to need it.

I personally like all of the electronics on my r1 and think the r6 could benefit from them as well. I dont think it would need the lift control or crossplain engine.
The linked braking system (ubs) is awesome because it wont let the rear lift off the ground. Its amazing fun to go into a corner with the rear end dancing all over knowing the electronics will control it for you.
Most of the guys want the abs and ubs gone. I love it.

Re: 2017 r6

I agree that ABS will have to be offered in Europe due to Euro4 in 2017.

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.
