Yamaha XJ6 Diversion Review
An indepth review of the Yamaha XJ6 Diversion, covering engine
characteristics, brakes, fuel injection and the overall weight and balance
of the machine, plus a look at the seat height versus handlebar position.
This is a more hands on review rather than my previous walkaround the bike
from a while back.
Chasing the Vanishing Point, basically how to read roads a little easier.
I give you my take on describing the Vanishing Point or Limit Point, which
could be useful for any motorcycle rider who does not currently use a point
of reference when accessing the severity of any particular corner.
I guess if you asked most riders how they know if they can make it round a
given corner safely they''d say "Through experience!" or " I just know!"
and perhaps they really do know and experience helps of course, but this
system helps take some of the risk or guesswork away. It's not mine of
course! I came across this when reading some motorcycle books years ago
just after passing my test, the book is called "Motorcycle Roadcraft" and
is available through amazon etc
I should also state for reference although I didn't really mention it in my
video, that most of my speeds were aimed at between 40mph - 60mph and were
pretty much done using a single gear with maybe the odd up or down gear
change for either entering or exiting tighter bends. I also only used my
brakes when absolutely necessary to give a smoother ride overall. There's
nothing to stop you using the brakes of course but then there's a whole new
ball-game with braking points etc, I was just doing it this way to keep it
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.

2015 Polaris Slingshot First Look
The not-so-secret 2015 Polaris Slingshot has a steering wheel and bucket
seats. So we shouldn’t even be reviewing it, right? I kinda felt that way
when given the assignment. In hindsight, though, I’m glad I had the
opportunity. The Slingshot’s an absolute blast, and at $19,999 for the
base model, it’s gonna give Can-Am’s Spyder ($18,999 for the ST) some
