I call Greater Yamaha today to put a down on the 06 R6. They want $500 down
because greater Yamaha is only getting 12 of the new R6 for the whole year. only 3 black that sucks:mad: , It sound like Yamaha is only making 1500 new R6 for the whole year.............. is that ture.

Don't know about the exact number but I know it is limited production. My dealer sold 27 R6's last year. They are only getting 10 of the 2006 R6 fo the whole year. They will make up there sales numbers with the R6s. I would highly recommend putting down a deposit. When this bike hits, if it lives up to all the hype there will be a lot of people who will want to buy one and won't be able to.

..btw I've got $500 down on an anniv ed.!!!:thumbup

Yeah, I read somewhere that Yamaha was starting to limit units to the US. Seems they are becoming a little more like Aprillia and Ducati. Limited units = higher costs. I know on the R! LE, they are only bringing in 500 to the US. Thats only 10 per state. Supply and demand....it's a bitch....

:wtf Yeah cuz LE doesnt me LIMITED Edition or anything... :wink

ps - all those people who think they have a limited edition 03R6 are WRONG. The only Limited Edition R6 (prior to the new 06 R6 in Yellow) was the 2001 Chapionship Limited Edition. All other R6's are NOT limited.

Relatively speaking, the bikes are limited production. Once the a dealer sells out of bikes, they're rarely able to order more. I worked in the business two-and-a-half years and not once were we able to get extra units later on. Gotta go on dealer trade.

As for Aprilia, ha ha - you can always get more of their bikes expect the Factory varients. They were always available.

I believe my dealer here in Cali is getting 2-3. I already have $1000 down and will receive the first one for this entire area in the central valley.

Anyone want some stock plastics, lights, kickstand, exhaust, clip-ons, yada yada for an 06 R6? :lol

it is less than 10 to a state...
i know because ther is a large chunk of that 500 going to race teams... and some states (like mine) arent getting any at all...

i was lucky to get my hands on an 06 R1

2006r6

I sold my 2002 last week and put a 2000 deposit on this one. They say the blue will be here in Jan, but the 50th won't be here until March.
