Its advanced new 6-level Traction Control System (TCS) allows you to select different modes while riding - and for outstanding acceleration there's a new Quick Shift System (QSS) that facilitates clutchless upshifts through the close ratio 6-speed transmission. In addition, the new model benefits from a number of other YZF-R1 technologies as well as further refinements that improve overall precision and control, making the new YZF-R6 sharper than ever!
