Yamaha YZF-R6 to be discontinued; to be available only as track bike

- YZF-R6 to be discontinued 

- No plans for Euro-5 version 

- Will sell as track-only bike 

Yamaha has decided to pull the plug on one of the most iconic motorcycles – the YZF-R6. The company would won’t make any of these bikes once the Euro-5 norm kicks in. 

According to the company, the cost associated to upgrade this middleweight supersport is too high. Plus, the overall sales in this segment hasn’t been encouraging as most of the bikes are priced quite high. The development costs of 600cc supersports are almost similar to that of its litre-class siblings.  The Japanese company will however keep this brand alive by offering track only models. These track-only models are basically stock bikes but stripped for track purposes. In fact, the company will offer its famous GYTR kit as well.  

Yamaha will continue to sell the last few remaining stocks of the R6 in Europe and USA for about a month. But starting January 2021, the R6 won’t be allowed to register.
