Clear HPI report. All books/documents/keys present

This is the original 1999 launch model R6, designated 5EB. A truly iconic motorcycle that re-wrote the rules for the 600cc Supersport class in terms of handling and agility, not to mention it’s absolute screamer of a DOHC in line 4 motor with a 15500rpm redline. With 120 crank bhp quoted, this allowed a standing 400m in sub 11s and a top speed in excess of 160mph. This R6 really was the ultimate 600cc Supersport of it’s time and indeed went on to dominate in motorcycle racing at world, national and club level alike (and continues to today in pre-injection classic series’)

It is completely virginal, stock, standard and original, as Yamaha intended, other than for a new stainless Delkevic exhaust, a top yoke protector, and R&G paddock stand bobbins

We have the original exhaust, in excellent condition, but for now have left the Delkevic on as it sounds truly wonderful with an ever so sweet note. Both exhausts come with the bike and we will provide it with whichever one the buyer prefers to have fitted

Essentially as good as it gets for one of these, it will appeal to a buyer whom places great importance on originality, condition, and low ownership and mileage provenance. To find an original first generation R6 that has led such a charmed existence will not easily be repeated, and is not to be taken for granted

’90s/noughties Japanese sportsbike are now at the age where values are increasing, along with their collectability and desirability. This is certainly an example for someone looking for long term ownership of one of these bikes as a future investment mach
