Last week, Yamaha introduced all their 2006 sportbikes, including an all new R6, all new FZ1, and some refreshed models.

Last night, I noticed the R6 is no longer being shown on their website. No mention of it at all.

Now, I was just looking in there and they've also taken away links to the FJR1300 and FZ1 as well! :confused:

The only 2006 models shown now are the R1/R1LE, the YZF-R6S (old R6), and the FZ6. I don't get it. Was that some sort of temporary sneak preview or something? What would be the point of that???

That is odd. I was thinking that it could be a sneak peek, but it was out there long enough for everyone and their best friend's Grandmother to post about it on tons of other MBoards so I wonder what the deal is?

Wonder if the site was hacked?? Corporate espianage is heavy stuff, but especially between these Big 4.

I noticed this to when trying to explain the new R6 to a friend...

I was really ticked off when they pointed out "dude, it looks just like this years" :wtf

Hope they aren't teasing me like that chick at the strip club....:woot:

well....i just called them and they said that they were planning on going public on the 28th and due to an internal mixup the info and pics got out early so they yanked them to be officially released on the 28th....to ensure proper security and confidentiality, yamaha is asking for anyone who saw anything to erase it from their mind so you can be surprised on the 28th....is that clear enough?

I don't know about you guys, but I heard when the new Yamaha's come out on the 28th, that we'll all be in for a surprise.....

Wish I could get a sneak peak on those, I hear the R6 will rev to the moon! :p

In unrelated news, I also heard that there will be a '06 RC51 too!:woot:

They probably waited to see what Honda was coming out with and the decided to go to plan B.

I'm glad I saved the Yami pics so I can now drool on my own...

Okay, Yamaha. It's safe to come back out now! We've seen what Honda's got for '06, and it ain't about nuthin'... :p
