Introduced in 1998, the R6 has undergone a process of continual revision and updating and is still in production today. Improvements introduced over the years include fuel injection, 'upside-down' forks, radial front brakes and a 'ride by wire' throttle, all of which have been aimed at keeping the R6 abreast of its rivals and, of equal importance, competitive in the World Supersport Championship. This R6 was acquired by the vendor in August 2007 and has been used for club-level racing in the 600 Stock Class. Recent work has seen the carburettors re-jetted and tuned by Race-Tec of Runcorn, and the engine coolant replaced with de-ionised water. Noteworthy features include an Öhlins steering damper, Harris adjustable rear-sets, R&G crash protection, Pazzo adjustable control levers, sports exhaust can, braided brake lines, 'wavy' brake discs, Renthal drive sprocket, race bodywork and Metzeler Race-Tec tyres. The machine is offered with SORN and Swansea V5C document. A quantity of spares is available via separate negotiation with vendor.
