Oh,and I think it looks fantastic in all black. Once I’d run the engine I found this bike to be perfect for what I need, bit of town riding, some twisty roads and some long straights and it handles them all superbly. I have owned my XJ6 for 6 months and have found it to be a totally enjoyable bike. It’s cheap and easy to service with wear and tear items being cheap too. All in all, a fantastic bike for the money, topping the class of the budget s. It came with Dunlop Road Smarts on it which were awful so i fitted Michelin PR3’s to it and that has made a huge difference it the way it rides and handles, highly recommended if you’re looking to switch tyres.

I do find myself trying to put it into seventh gear! All in all a fantastic package for the money and ticks all the boxes for someone like me. It can also be ridden sedately, returning ridiculously good fuel economy.
Its not what I bought a bike for.
YAMAHA XJ6 (on) Review | Owner & Expert Ratings | MCN
Buying experience Got it from SMC. Like the styling, comfort and equipment. I even get 10, miles plus from a set of Bridgestone and Avon tyres. I’ve just returned to biking after a 12 year break and decided to go for a XJ6N after doing a bit of research.
The steering lock is pretty handy too. Its a small point as the power delivery in general is excellent, especially its ability to pull strongly in sixth.
I’m glad it doesn’t have a center stand as I don’t want the extra weight. I’ve had my XJ6 since the 1st August and I don’t have a bad thing to say about it’s performance. My bike’s just had it’s mile service so I can now make more use of the power it has to offer. I am not someone who likes to xu6n his knee down so perhaps this bike is limited but for putting a smile on my face when out on the B roads its great.
YAMAHA XJ6 (2009-on) Review
Not sure if its something i should be worrying about? The engine revs so incerdibly smoothly throughout the range, the power is enough to put a smile on your face, and the handling is spot on – this bike xm6n perfectly balanced.
What more do you need Apart from a gear indicator? I’ve had my XJ6 since late September ’09 and have clocked up miles since. Check out the video below for xj6m first look at the new fully-faired Yamaha XJ6 Diversion Great sounding engine, power delivery around town is a bit too frantic in first and second especially when negotiating roundabouts, third is best for this.
I get some kind of rattling sound from the chain or sprocket when at low revs or slowing down. Also notchy gear-change in town. I was never a fan of the ‘transformer’ styling trend that has been the feature of Jap bikes in the last couple of years and xh6n planning to keep well clear. Engine is great, goes through the rev range wonderfully and rides well, although I do seem to think zj6n is another gear even when in 6th!

The big let down is the gear box, very clunky and more than a few missed gears. Disappointed that it doesn’t have gear indicator on dial, as I’m used to loud engines that indicate well. This bike is lovely and quiet, I can’t wait for the mile service, so that I can really let rip. Yamaha XJ6 33bhp restrictor kit now available Yamaha has released a restrictor kit for the XJ6 which limits the bike to 33bhp for A2 license Did mile trip recently without any discomfort.
I rode all the others and chose the XJ6. Bike of the day: With 16K on the clock, the bike required a xh6n new wiring loom as the old one rubbed on a bracket and was water damaged, causing me to lose xxj6n electrics at 80mph.
Good-looking all-rounder that promised much but originally let down by inflated price and deflated forks, but since improved. Great all round bike: This bike is fab! Yes the engine is xj6nn, but it suits the nature of the bike.
