white one is my pick


The 2009 Yamaha R6 was unveiled today in Las Vegas alongside its bigger sibling, the all-new 2009 Yamaha R1. As expected, not much has changed from the slightly re-geared and utterly amazing 2008 R6. In fact, the only major update is to the Engine Control Unit, which has been remapped for what Yamaha says is a better linear power delivery while driving out of the corners.

Go get it, you still have to wait at least 15 months after you get it to get your fulls and actually be able to ride these decent bikes :mad:
