Re: Yamaha R6S - 2005 or 2006 Model?
That is an 05 model. Some countries register bikes based on the date first sold, but it is definitly an 05. The 06 R6S had the same forks as the 2004 R6. And, no they aren't 06 R6 forks installed on an R6S. The 3rd gen R6 forks had high and low speed compression adjustments and were on a little canister in front of the caliper.
EDIT: Oh, and some markets did get gold forks....the US did not. Type in a Google search for "2005 R6 Red" and you will see some images that show the gold forks. Most of them are in UK, or Australia, or other countries. It wouldn't surprise me if SA got some with gold ones.
