Yamaha XJ6 Diversion
The Yamaha XJ6 Diversion entered the market in 2009 based on the naked Yamaha FZ6 and as a modern successor to Yamaha XJ600S Diversion. Unlike the FZ6, the XJ6 received more modest equipment and, accordingly, a more affordable price.
- Engine. Uses different camshafts and settings, so that the maximum power is reduced to 78 hp.
- Frame. The expensive aluminum frame has been replaced with a simpler steel frame.
- Brakes. Instead of 4-piston calipers, simpler 2-piston calipers were installed.
- Fuel tank. Reduces its capacity from 19.4 to 17.3 liters.
Initially, 2 modifications of the XJ6 model were presented:
- Yamaha XJ6N - naked version.
- Yamaha XJ6S Diversion - version with front fairing.
Since 2010, an all-plastic version of the Yamaha XJ6F Diversion has appeared, which is sold in the American market under the name Yamaha FZ6R.
Of the features of the XJ6 series motorcycles, one can single out a steel diagonal frame, an injection power system, versions with ABS, simple suspensions in the form of a conventional telescopic fork in the front and a monoshock at the rear, a 6-speed gearbox and from 205 kg of curb weight (the lightest weight is XJ6N without ABS ).
2016 was the last year of the series production for the European market, and in 2017 the model finally left the North American market.
