Yamaha YZF-R6 2010

It is a very attractive looking machine, which explains it's almost immediate popularity when introduced back in 1999 It is styled like the traditional racing bikes and will turn almost any head that happens to see it streak by on the road or anyone simply walking by. There is a nearly 5 gallon tank that allows a decent cruising range and has a dry weight of only 366 pounds so it should be easy for anyone to maneuver. It is fuel injected with a six-speed transmission and a final chain drive to get the torque to the rear wheel.

The bike is listed as having a 600 CC engine styled as a 4 stroke with 16 valves and liquid cooled, dual overhead cams and the new models incorporate titanium valves. If that were indeed the actual RPM of the engine, the bike would be up somewhere close to the performance of a high tech and high dollar formula one race car. The heart pumping bike in 2006 touted a staggering 17500-RPM redline. The Yamaha YZF-R6 or the R6 as it is more commonly referred to is a sporty and fast bike that is going to excite almost anyone that sees it or rides on it.

It is the first true freedom they find to get out and go places and literally the first motorized vehicle many of them own because of the economics involved in owning a vehicle and the fact that most young boys are not well off financially.  Motorcycles are a rite of passage for most young boys.
