I am going to take a fairly different approach with my review of the all-new Yamaha YZF-R6
I don’t want to completely send you to sleep with boring specs that you’ve probably already researched on the internet, instead I’d like to paint the full picture of my time spent on the bike.
The German Austrian war: KTM has dominated and dictated the way when it comes to small bikes (read less than 500cc) for some time now but the Germans, not to be outdone, have eventually engaged in battle and entered their new weapon of choice; the BMW G 310 R.
It’s always been a relentless quest of the ‘shed’ mechanic. I’m talking about the constant attempt to make a motorcycle, or even a car, boat or caravan (maybe or never), look like the more expensive version of a similar machine. I could even point a finger at humans spending ridiculous sums of money to ‘resemble’, and I mean that very lightly, their film, reality crap show stars or whoever. All in the sad quest of winning the local ‘look-alike’ competition and being rewarded with a bowl of goldfish or something of similar value. But you know where I coming from.
