It’s like riding a sponge cake, all wobbly and squidgy. So , thumbs up for the XJ6. If you’ve done your home work and are thinking of buying one – DO IT! 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 was planning to keep well clear. The steering lock is pretty handy too. The gearbox gets better after about miles. I have also had new top seals on the front dampers, a snapped rear hugger, and an issue with debris in the throttle body causing a sticky throttle.

This is the naked version of the half-faired Yamaha XJ6 Diversion and aside from the lack of I’ve been thinking about upgrading recently for something with a little more power around the bhp areabut having test ridden both a Street Triple and a BanditI just can’t justify forking out the extra cash; the Street Triple was fun and the extra power was just about noticeable but was more uncomfortable and quite frankly the handling wasn’t as good as the XJ6’s – seriously.
Hopefully the mile service will help. This is in xj6j budget bike sector of the market, but the look and ride is anything but. Yamaha XJ6 Diversion Motorcycle insurance costs are an important consideration for any bike buyer. Far too much rear brake travel.
There is corrosion on the exhaust and rear damper, but the bike has been ridden all through winter. I’ve been using one as a courtesy bike whilst having work done on my other bikes GSXR and Xh6n Sothumbs up for the XJ6. With 16K on the clock, the bike required a whole new wiring loom as the old one rubbed on a bracket and was water damaged, causing me to lose all electrics at 80mph. As mine is so reliable and the new bike mechanically the same there was no point giving mine up.
All in all, a fantastic bike for the money, topping the class of the budget s.
YAMAHA XJ6 (2009-on) Review
Traded in my trusty Thundercat which i loved the perfomance of on country blasts. Revs well from low down but a quoted mph is xj66n a tad optimistic as mine was showing mph and that was about all it had and miles per tank range is even funnier.
Hugely popular learner sports that’s easy to ride, comfortable, gives good fuel economy and, above all, is a Honda.
If you’ve done your home work and are thinking of buying one – DO IT!
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 was planning to keep well clear. What’s with the weird noise created by air flowing over the mutant headlight. This bike is fab! When you wring the neck of this bike which being a 4 pot engine, it seems to be hungry for revs it rewards with an even spread of torque bottom to top and a nice predictable build in power, to a screaming 4 cylinder crescendo!
I even get 10, miles plus from a set of Bridgestone and Avon tyres. Not only does it actually look pretty badass in the flesh you can tell yamaha spent a lot of money on the styling hereit rides like a dream.
Yamaha XJ6N – BikesRepublic
Good-looking all-rounder that promised much but originally let down by inflated price and deflated forks, but since improved. Thirdly, the engine is super smooth all the way through the revs. Suspension gets overwhelmed very quickly if you push it. The only bad comment if you wanted to call bad is the engine is a bit revvy, xj6h you have to push it hard to get it going, but oh boy if have jx6n guts to do it it will put a big smille in you face.
I am 6’2″ and have no problems with the seat height or ride position. The bike has very good low down torque, although the engine is very busy, and feels like it needs a seventh gear, overall though superb.
Other pages you might like I’m really pleased and feel I made the right decision. One thing I see some previous reviews talk about a strange noise from the headlight or air through the front mudguard I’m so looking forward to riding this little devil. Also notchy gear-change in town. The gearbox gets better after about miles. For those who would putter along at 2, 30 mph in top to secure something near 70 mpg – sort yourself out?!
