She rides perfect, low or high speeds, corners like a dream but the brakes let her down, the rear has a tendency to lock up even though she is an ABS model. Bike of the day: Before I bought my xj6, i test rode a fairly new frantic R6 and soon realised a modern sports bike wasn’t for me. There is corrosion on the exhaust and rear damper, but the bike has been ridden all through winter. Comfortable , good handler , engine is a bit revvy. Power peaks above 6k rpm so you do need to use the gears for quick overtaking, as you’d expect for an 80 bhp cc bike. Nah, the XJ6N lives on and it will take one hell of a bike to make me let it go.

Looks like a turnip as well. Great looks, smooth and very willing engine and quality at the price I paid are just outstanding. Nothing broken yet but too soon to give 5 stars.
A test ride on this bike changed my mind. I have to plan my overtakes more carefully because it has xj6m bhp less than my previous ride. Firstly, it’s xj6j mentioning I’ve never had even the slightest hiccup – reliability has been top notch.
I get some kind of rattling sound from the chain or sprocket when at low revs or slowing down. Light weight, lovely mover. Great all round bike: Bought as a commuter bike it does the job well other than the throttle being a little snatchy at low revs and stiff to operate. Sothumbs up for the XJ6. Also notchy gear-change in town. For a budget machine, the Yamaha XJ6 is well-designed, well thought-out and well-built. Gearbox is slick and positive. Checked the chain tension and all is good on that side.
This is a sports bike after all and cries out to be opened up every now and again!

Suspension gets overwhelmed xj6m quickly if xi6n push it. My xj6j bike after a decade away from two wheels, I love it. No problems and would recommend them to anyone. Just returned to biking after a year absence. I was planning to pass my Bike test and was ploughing through all the different bikes i could ride when i’d passed.
For me it gives the perfect balance of weekend fun and commuter practicality – a willing, if revvy, engine when you need it but up to 70 mpg on my commute if ridden conservatively I’m a bit stingy when it comes to commuting. Revs well from low down but a quoted mph is being a tad optimistic as mine was showing mph and that was about all it had and miles per tank range is even funnier.
If you’ve done your home work and are thinking of buying one – DO IT!
I can say with all confidence, having ridden a good few mid-sized bikes, budget and non-budget, that this is the best beginners bike I have found to date Hopefully the mile service will help. Ad closing in second s Scores a 2 instead of 1 as the bike xjj6n well packaged and uses good build materials. All this fettling is designed to make the Yamaha XJ6 flexible and friendly to ride. The price you pay for Yamaha high-precision engineering! Has all you xj6m but fuel gauge goes from half to reserve flashing within 25 miles so don’t trust it at low readings.
Go and buy one xk6n won’t regret it. It gets a new cylinder head, softer-performance camshafts, reshaped inlet ports, new forged pistons and a one-piece crankcase and cylinder block. As it is, the engine is still impressive and the new, smoother-action clutch and gearbox help the job along. Claimed power and torque is less than the FZ6 by xj6m and 2ftlbbut usefully delivered much lower down the rev-range rpm and rpm. Summary of Owners’ Reviews Overall Rating 4.
