Apparently, Yamaha's worldwide best-selling 600cc supersports motorcycle, the YZF-R6, will not receive any radical upgrades for 2013, though Yamaha might launch a new model with a few changes here and there.
According to a recent report, it seems that Yamaha have not altered the engine specifications in any way for the 2013 Yamaha YZF-R6 and even the weight of the motorcycle is identical to the current model.
However, we can speculate that the new Yamaha YZF-R6 might come equipped with ABS braking and slight changes in its bodywork. These changes might seem nominal as compared to what the competition might bring in. Honda will be upgrading their highly acclaimed CBR600RR and Kawasaki will also introduce worldwide a new Ninja ZX-6R next year. It seems that the Yamaha YZF-R6 will be the only 600cc class motorcycle that will hardly sport any new and exciting changes in 2013.
