I have looked everywhere, (probably not hard enough someone will say) but I cant seem to find a published 0-60 speed and others (0-100 etc.) anywhere for the new to 2008 R6. Anyone know these !?!? Thanks guys.

I realize a lot will depend on rider skill and so on and so forth but I figured they had to have a best time, or at least some other statistics about the bikes speed aside from the 170mph barrier.:popcorn:

"Fast Bikes" is one of the Uk's largest motorcycle magazines and is especially aimed at the hardcore performance bike rider and modifier.
They recently did a 600 class war and they do full testings on the bikes.
2008 R6 results were;

0-60: 3.31s :YEA
0-100:6.57s
0-140:13.17s
Standing 1/4 mile: 11.07s @ 131.49mph
Standing mile: 28.63s @ 167.93

Hope that helps!!!!!!
Peace.:toocool:

Hey, here's some news;
went to my garage today and finally picked up my 08 bike.
there was a kid there who was fixing is 08 track bike. turns out he's a british superstock racer. superstock has some strict rules including no tweaks to the engine mapping. there only allowed a few mods like full exhaust kit, brake lines, etc... and run a one tyre rule (metzer m3's)
He had a full carbon ackropovic and told me that on speed testings that the 08 yamaha's are always top 5 in the rankings and no other 600's come close. he said that there alot faster than the 06/07 due to the lower grunt ycci tweaks that yamaha have added this year.
So there's some good news for you 08 owners.
i din't stick around for long and i didn't ask too many questions so i couldnt give you exact figures
peace.

How do those compare to the 07?
FOUND THAT MAG, HERE ARE THE 06/07 R6 STATS

0-60: 3.56s
0-100:7.13s
0-140:15.29s
Standing 1/4 mile: 11.46s @ 128.09mph
Standing mile: 29.66s @ 160.28mph

The difference are so small that as i said above, they would only be noticable on Track, so if its a faster bike you want then don't premusebly think 08!!

06 VS 08
