NEW FOR 2005
- Engine upgrades in the form of 40mm throttle bodies,revised fuel injection and ignition maps, new camshaftsand intake funnels, etc., all result in a 3-horsepowerincrease at the same rpm as before with more poweracross the board.
- New, fully adjustable inverted fork with 41mmtubes further reinforces R6's main strength: precisehandling. New, cast top triple clamp and forged lowerclamp also increase rigidity, and work with revisedhandlebar positioning.
- To complement the new fork, the rear section ofthe Deltabox III main frame was revised internally towork with revised swingarm linkage and mounts forimproved handling.
- Lighter, 310mm front brake discs replace 298mm units.New radial-mount four-piston calipers and radial mastercylinder provide greater braking power and feel.
- 120/70-ZR17 front tire replaces previous 120/60-ZR17for improved handling.
- Twin, ring-type radiator fans are now used to ensureoptimal engine cooling.
Revised headlight lens and revised under-cowl for evenbetter style.
Ultra-compact, lightweight, 600cc DOHC 16-valveliquid-cooled inline four-cylinder puts out 123 horsepower.
- Competition-bred suction-piston-type fuel injectionfeatures short intake ports and a special vacuumcontrolledintake system to ensure instant throttleresponse all the way up to the 15,500-rpm redline.
- Compact slant-block engine design uses stackedgearbox shafts to create a low center of gravity andbalanced weight distribution.
- Ram-Air Induction System delivers cool, high-pressureair for optimal combustion and greater horsepower athigh speed.
- Lightweight forged pistons on carburized connectingrods for superb strength and reduced reciprocating mass.
- Linerless, ceramic-composite cylinder bores meangreater heat dissipation for consistent power deliveryand reduced friction.
- Close-ratio 6-speed transmission delivers seamlesspower and maximum acceleration.
- Special three-axis gearbox design stacks input/outputshafts to keep overall engine size to super-compactdimensions.
- Curved radiator follows the contour of the frameand bodywork for an ultra-sleek look and excellentcooling performance.
- Specially designed, one-piece cylinder and crankcaseassembly provides superior engine rigidity andlight weight.
- Engine is a fully stressed chassis member to allow for asuper-light frame design.
- Compact, large-capacity clutch ensures consistent,fade-free performance.
- Rifle-bored camshafts with specially designed valvelifters and computer-perfected timing for reducedspinning mass and quicker acceleration.
- Large-capacity internal water pump and separateliquid-cooled oil cooler ensure optimal enginecooling efficiency.
- 4-into-2-into-1 aluminum exhaust optimizes engineperformance, reduces overall weight and is tucked inhigh for maximum lean angle.
Direct ignition coils, dual-electrode spark plugs andhigh-output magneto deliver extremely accurate,reliable firing.
Radical Deltabox IlI aluminum chassis is light, stiff andextremely compact for razor-sharp handling.
- Controlled Fill die casting produces an incrediblysleek swingarm that is remarkably strong and light bypinpointing exactly where material needs to be. Pivotposition and swingarm length (576mm) are optimizedfor great traction feel.
- Fully adjustable (preload, compression and rebounddamping) piggyback rear shock with 4.7" of traveldelivers exceptional rear wheel tracking and stability.
- Removable CF die cast rear subframe is light and strong.
Super-light five-spoke 17" wheels reduce unsprungweight; the casting technique makes the rim sectionlight, not to mention wickedly cool-looking.
Durable, lightweight, aluminum clip-on bars provideoptimal vibration damping.
- Narrow 4.5-gallon fuel tank provides excellent riderergonomics and aggressive seating position.
- Multi-function digital and analog instrumentationfeatures: programmable shift light, digital speedometer,analog tachometer, dual tripmeters with miles-onreservefunction, odometer, water temp gauge andlights for neutral, high beam, low fuel and turn signals.
- Dual Gatling beam 60/55-watt multi-reflector headlightfeatures a sleek profile for superb aerodynamicsand visibility.
- Dual LED taillight design reduces both weight and sizewhile providing excellent visibility and a sleek profile.
- Standard toolkit located in convenient storagecompartment under passenger seat.
