Yamaha FZ6N S2

Yamaha FZ6 begins its history in 2004, when two modifications come to replace the obsolete Yamaha FZS 600 - Yamaha FZ6N and Yamaha FZ6S. The first version is a classic modern naked, the second is the same motorcycle, but with a front half fairing.

The Yamaha FZ6 was based on the engine from the sports Yamaha YZF-R6, which was slightly derated, improving the low-end torque and reducing the maximum power to 98 hp. The engine is high-speed and produces maximum characteristics for 10000-12000 rpm.

The main modifications of the Yamaha FZ6:

  • Yamaha FZ6N - regular naked version
  • Yamaha FZ6S - version with front half fairing.
  • Yamaha FZ6R - aka Yamaha XJ6 Diversion (for Europe) - full fairing version (replaced the Yamaha FZ6 series since 2010).

Additional modifications of Yamaha FZ6:

  • Yamaha FZ6 S2 - European full bore (98 hp) naked version with a different saddle, passenger footpegs and brake calipers.
  • Yamaha FZ6 Fazer S2 - European full-strength (98 hp) version with front half fairing.

The Yamaha FZ6 model existed on the market until 2010, after which it was replaced by a new version - Yamaha FZ8. The only exception was the North American market, where the Yamaha FZ6R is still on sale (in the European market it is known as Yamaha XJ6 Diversion F).
