MCN Roadtest: Yamha XJ6 Diversion
MCN has just returned from testing the new Yamaha XJ6 Diversion and naked
XJ6 in Australia.
The two new models both feature the same de-tuned inline-four engine from
the Yamaha R6.
The faired, XJ6 Diversion is smooth and easy-to-use - aimed more at
commuters and novices alike.
The naked XJ6 is a completely different animal. With the fairing removed
the XJ6 weighs 6kg less which makes it feel more manic and more agile.
