We know bikers in both camps. Some are only interested in performance and componentry, others also want the motorcycle they spend their hard-earned cash on to look good as well as ride well.
Some motorbike company get around this issue by offering custom paint options where you can have any colour combination you desire applied to your dream frame.
Plenty more brands get around the issue by having a colourful option and a plain option in their top selling lines. And of course, a lot of brands will offer differently spec’d models in different colourways — for example the Yamaha R6 model of one bike in the range might be Matte Gray, Primer White, Rapid Red (just like the one which German bikergirl Nana is riding in the photoshoot below), Racing Red with white Pearl, or just Blue.
And for the truly dedicated, there’s also the world of custom decals, patterned frame protection and sending it to the paint shop yourself.
So over to you. Would the colour of a bike influence how likely you are to buy it? Have you ever spent up or down on your budget because you preferred the colours of a different model of the bike you were after? Have you ever splurged on Project One or got a custom paint job? And, most important, which colours do you like? Leave a comment and tells us what you just love pals!
Designed for competition in the Supersport class, the R6 comes with a 599 cc, inline four-cylinder producing 118.4 PS at 14,500 rpm and 61.6 Nm of torque at 10,500 rpm. Lightweight forged pistons give a 13.1:1 compression ratio coupled with titanium valves with the engine package coupled to a six-speed close ratio quickshifter equipped gearbox.
Everything is tied together in an aluminium Deltabox frame with magnesium sub-frame. As per its racing intentions, the R6 Race and R6 GYTR omit everything not required for track duties, including all necessary legal equipment like headlights, mirrors, signals and horn in the interests of weight reduction.
Braking is done with twin radial-mount four-piston brake callipers on 320 mm discs on the front wheel. Suspension uses items from KYB, with full-adjustable forks in front, with technology taken from the Yamaha R1 superbike, and a monoshock at the back, also fully-adjustable.
17-litres of fuel is carried in the lightweight aluminium fuel tank and the whole package weighs 185 kg, fully filled and ready to go. For the R6 GYTR which comes clad in white carbon reinforced plastic, things are taken up a notch with the installation of items such as an ABS emulator, allowing for ABS pump removal, block plates for the air intake, racing sprockets with special 520 chain and fully adjustable rear sets for fine tuning of the riding position as well as a full titanium Akrapovic race exhaust.
