2007 Yamaha YZF-R6 Comparison
…,000 rpm. The torque graph is proof positive that the R6 suffers from a top-end biased powerplant. But don't be mislead into thinking it doesn't get with the program because, as the quarter-mile times on the previous page show, it hauls ass. ""The R6 lacks bottom-end but is awesome up top,"" says Hutch…

…took to sink the R6 in Drivetrain rankings. Riders deemed the Yamaha slipper clutch quite effective, however, finding it a real bonus on the street.

…entire class. Or maybe an unfair example, as the R6 can’t catch a break in our performance data. It rates behind the Honda and Ducati by a scant 0.01 in 0-60 acceleration tests, ahead of only the MV Agusta. It does fare better in the quarter-mile times, besting the MV again as well as the Ducati and…
Quarter Mile Times
…down the quarter mile (below). At the drag strip there are multiple times gathered in the quarter-mile. The delay in a rider's response to the green light is dubbed the reaction time. (There always is a built-in fractionally small delay or else the rider is given a red-light.) A 60-foot time is also registered…

…middleweights has more in common with the Milky Way than with milquetoast. The out-of-this-world bikes assembled for this test all run 10-second quarter-miles and can lap a racetrack quicker than a literbike from less than a decade ago. However, this cautionary piece of advice is often lost on noobs who…

…issue on the track than a street. That said, the CBR holds its own during acceleration tests. A 3.74-second 0-60 isn’t notable, but the 11.12 quarter-mile bests all save the true cheater in this shootout, the GSX-R750. Honda’s engine benefits from the improved mid-range, no question, but doesn’t…

…and unforgiving ergos. The R6 is a bike which Pacific Track Time owner Michael Earnest would choose to go show those pesky A-group riders the fast way around Thunderhill.

…Inline Four belts out a pleasing mid-range punch, but is down on its rivals in peak horsepower. The Honda did struggle in the quarter-mile and 0-60 results, its 10.98 quarter time dead last and 3.36 0-60 result besting only the Yamaha. The Honda managed to haul things to a stop from 60 mph in 126 feet.…
