Yamaha XJ6 600 2015

Menus

After a few years of loyal service, the specter of evolution has touched the XJ6. Is it changing in depth? Will it cruelly go out of style with the old version? Should we expect a new generation ?
Relax the electrocardiogram: the roadster evolves only on the design; and again, by small touches.

In 2013, some elements were redesigned and others brought up to date. The XJ6 gains new radiator scoops, a more aerodynamic headlight trim, translucent white indicators, LED dashboard lighting and a chain tension indicator. On the comfort side, the saddle is covered with a non-slip cover and the passenger has new, more ergonomic handles. No upheaval therefore, for this machine of access to large cubes. It simply polishes what is seen. The Race Blu colorway is renewed for 2015. One of the main threats to the XJ6 comes from its own siblings: the MT-07, at a great price and with a more playful character..

Genesis :

The mid-size XJ philosophy remains as some have known it as we searched for the magic pink paper: to offer an easy-to-access, reasonably-priced, do-it-all bike with the right mix of power. The XJ6 respects these codes. But no way to look sad, because the competition is in full swing. So Yam put a little emphasis on the design of the trim, with an FZ1 headlight topped by a ruby-shaped night light, sharp radiator scoops, a small engine guard and a few plastic pieces to enhance the appearance. With its slender rear end free of the muffler (it’s tucked away under the engine), the XJ6 really looks good. Its profile contrasts with its big competitors: it seems incisive and muscular, when a Honda CBF wants to be wise and reassuring, while the Kawa ER-6n wants to be fun, playful and slender. The Bandit seems more impulsive.

Yamaha XJ6 600 2015 On the technical side, no need to bother with a Superbike chassis, useless (and expensive) for its customers. The XJ6 has a diamond-like frame with steel tubes. Simple and functional, it houses an engine based on the 4-cylinder architecture of the FZ6, itself derived from the 2003 R6. Cylinder head, crankcase, camshafts, intake / exhaust systems, clutch and selection have been revised for s ‘fit the XJ6. Widely redesigned, it strives to offer flexibility and availability, to best suit a widely versatile use. This carton is therefore displayed in the same court as the machines in the same segment. The comparison in engine will be tight against other Japanese – The evolution is however much more marked if we refer to the data of the old XJ: it was equipped with an air-cooled 4 legs with 2 valves per cylinder of 61 ch. Its descendant is equipped with a liquid-cooled engine, twice as many valves, and 78 hp at 10,000 rpm.

With the wave of street-fighters who have landed in recent years, it’s strange to find a bike with wise values, much more suited to our “safe” environment. The chassis data tell us a nice bike, not particularly playful but not tricky either. A wheelbase of 1440 mm, a caster angle of 26 °, a conventional fork of 41 mm, dual piston brake calipers and optional ABS – Nothing sporty but fun and functional under a seductive dress.
Standardization requires, the XJ6 takes over the dashboard of the FZ series. By choosing classic elements, such as the simple swingarm, a bulb taillight, a braking system more than sufficient without being a front axle of R1, a steel frame and a widely tested engine, this Yamaha allows itself to display a reasonable price. Like the late XJ6, but more modern.
And for those looking for a little protection or something to do a little bit of the road, don’t forget that the XJ6 is doubled with the Diversion version, equipped with a good size fork crown..
