What Is the Top Speed of the Yamaha YZF-R6 R?

Visordown lists the top speed of a 2008 to 2012 Yamaha YZF-R6 R as around 165 mph. The rip-roaring speed combined with this bike's lightweight frame and adjustable suspension creates an incredible riding experience.

The YZF-R6 R's 599cc inline four-cylinder DOHC motor uses 16 titanium valves, a high compression rate and innovative domed pistons with valve cutouts to pump out 51 pounds of torque per foot. A Yamaha chip-controlled throttle/intake system and a torque-limiting slipper clutch encourages safe downshifting from high speeds with less engine braking, and the compact six-speed transmission effortlessly transfers power to its five-spoke 17-inch wheels for a smooth ride unlike any other.
