Description

Click here for an CycleVIN Motorcycle History Report on this 2012 Yamaha YZF-R6 WorldGP 50th Anniversary Edition. Additional photos are available here for your perusal.

Yamaha’s recently announced that the R6 is being killed off as a street bike, so let’s look at one of the highlights from its illustrious run which dates back to the late 1990s. Over the years, upgrades included a LED taillight (2001), fuel injection (2003), USD forks/radial calipers (2005), and then a complete revamp in 2006 with an ride-by-wire throttle (the first production bike with this technology). By 2011, it was producing 124 horsepower.

The model was carried-over for 2012, however Yamaha introduced a limited colorway for the R6 (as well as the R1, FZ8, and other models not offered in the US). Called the “WorldGP 50th Anniversary Edition”, it was built to “celebrate half a century of success in Grand Prix racing.” The livery featured Yamaha’s classic speedblock in Pearl White and Rapid Red.

In addition, the 50th Anniversary R6 (of which 1,500 were built) includes a 50th Anniversary emblem and numbered plate on the top of the tank.

Yamaha debuted the livery on their MotoGP YZR-M1 in 2011 for two races (Assen and Laguna Seca) with Jorge Lorenzo and Ben Spies.

This example is VIN: JYARJ16E7CA026151.

It is #1083 of 1500.

The odometer shows 14,979 miles.

It was accepted as a trade-in by our neighbors at Bartel’s Harley-Davidson, so the history is not well-known. We note the following modifications:
R&G radiator guard.

GB Racing engine protection.

Akrapovic exhaust (we believe it’s a knock-off).

R6 carbon fiber tank protector and Stompgrip tank grips.

Woodcraft frame sliders and axle sliders.

Aftermarket front turn signals.

Aftermarket front fairing inner panels.

Pirelli Diablo Rosso 2 tires (Date Codes: 3120 front, 3020 rear).

Cosmetic Blemishes:

Currently located at our facility in Santa Monica, California (please make an appointment for an inspection), this R6 is offered on a clean California title with registration current through February 2021.
