2019 Domestic New Model Collection [Part-02] Lightweight Big Super Sports
The 600cc class has a characteristic of being lighter and more compact than the liter-class supersport. Although shrinking its lineup for racing-oriented models, it has been just getting better by making model changes of 2017 YZF-R6 and of the 2019 Ninja ZX-6R.
The 600 – 800cc class supersport is attractive with a lighter and more compact body and with a more moderate output than those of the liter-class supersport, which seems too hard to handle with an excess of power. Also the prices are easier to get.
The 600 cc class supersport became very popular in Europe in between the 1990’s and the early half of 2000’s. But nowadays the market has changed enough to diminish this class even to an end because of not dealing with the EURO4, emission regulation in Europe since 2016. In this situation, the 2017 YAMAHA YZF-R6 was the first to deal with this regulation. After that, it became a topic that the racing-oriented Ninja ZX-6R made its model change in 2019.
