Yamaha has released another “R World” teaser video for a yet-to-be-announced sportbike model, which will be revealed on October 13 at the American International Motorcycle Expo (AIMExpo) in Orlando, Florida.
The 30-second video, which shows a rider in leathers flogging a sportbike on a race track to the soundtrack of a high-revving engine, flashes words like “Refined” and “Redesigned” on the screen, almost certainly alluding to an updated YZF-R6, which hasn’t gotten a serious overhaul since 2008.
Will the 2017 Yamaha YZF-R6 get a Crossplane crank engine? State-of-the-art electronics?
Watch the video for hints and then look for an announcement on Thursday, October 13.
