REVIEW: 2013 Yamaha XJ6 Diversion

data-trigger=hover class=pop-blog-ads 1999 Toyota HARRIER


Courtesy of Hong Yamaha, we had the chance to test of their offerings. The XJ6 Diversion, was the first to land on our hands, its mark in the Malaysian market in 2010, specifically aimed at the ER-6f. The model was updated in May with a new flasher lens, seat handle and two new colours and Race Blu offered.

The naked, on the hand, came only in 2013.

The Diversion variant is while the naked, formally simply as XJ6, had some of the taken off. It is easy to the appearances of these two bikes, we find lean more on the side of thing, instead of Not to say the XJ6 looks mundane, but our first of the bike was that it had a straightforward, look; no fancy, useless bits attached to the body, is a good thing to start

 The simplicity continues on the console, which has an uncluttered backed by white LED backlighting it easy to read at any time of the The box-section swingarm is dated but t interfere visually.

The Diversion we had in white, which is nice but the new Blu colour scheme on the naked that got us jumping. The matte and blue combination wins the factor and makes the bike like it came out straight a spray paint shop than the factory. And if we had to say, the gets more attention traffic light stops.

Built on a lightweight tubular the simple-looking XJ6 Diversion offers ergonomics, something that be on top of the list when it comes to an everyday workhorse. The boffins at got the seat, handlebar and foot positioned accurately to provide a comfortable and commanding riding which also comes in during low-speed manouevres. riders will appreciate the position.

Both the Diversion and get a detuned 600 cc, liquid-cooled, DOHC derived from the FZ6, of its internals are revised. The mill is not a rocket due to its modest  76 hp and 60 Nm power but it has the willingness to rev high when in despite suffering from a flat power curve. The takes off from stationary sluggishly but squeeze the throttle 3,000 rpm on any gear and the bike promptly advance without any making overtaking other on the road a breezy affair.

Both bikes are built to be a all-rounder but the Diversion naturally better on open roads, it kills the wind to reach than 170 km/h despite fitted with a standard The naked, wearing less bits, struggles to reach the speed on highways but rides in the traffic due to its slimmer profile.

Handling is not bad either. Although feature the same 41 mm forks at the and monocross suspension at the rear, the prevails over the Diversion it comes to corners. While the requires more effort to be put the handlebar to change direction, the is more responsive in tackling the

Due to its slightly lighter body, the flicks into turns with some help the adequate Dunlop Sportmax tyres.

The soft suspension is and does not kill your bum on a long journey. It keeps its during high-speed manouevres but to do the same when bumpy, road comes into the The brakes — two 298 mm discs two-piston calipers at the front, and a 245 mm with single-piston caliper down the rear proved to be when we took the bike up and the infamous Genting road.

Only thing lacking is which should be made like other markets.

A with both machines has down to this; the XJ6 (in both and naked forms) is a well-built bike that settles in the typical hustle and bustle of a big easily yet has the ability to tear up the every weekend. An excellent of attractive appearance, rider-friendly and zippy engine justifies the XJ6 as a middleweight bike. And we d think the affordable fits just for the RM39,500 (Diversion) and RM38,500 price tags.
