“When what you are deeply passionate about, what you can be best in the world at and what drives your economic engine come together, not only does your work move toward greatness, but so does your life. For, in the end, it is impossible to have a great life unless it is a meaningful life. And it is very difficult to have a meaningful life without meaningful work. Perhaps, then, you might gain that rare tranquility that comes from knowing that you’ve had a hand in creating something of intrinsic excellence that makes a contribution. Indeed, you might even gain that deepest of all satisfactions: knowing that your short time here on this earth has been well spent, and that it mattered.”

Old R6 remains for 2016

AFTER years of slow sales for sports bikes the market appears to be picking up a little – thanks in part to new machines like the 2015 Yamaha R1 – but it seems the 1000cc machine isn’t going to be followed with a similarly revamped R6 just yet.
Yamaha has filed another batch of emissions documents with the California Air Research Board (CARB) for its 2016 line-up, including one for the R6. And it shows that next year’s bike, at least in California, will be identical to the current one apart from a set of new colours.
There’s still a slight chance the existing R6 could be joined by a new model in 2016 – if rumours of a 675cc three-cylinder are to be believed then it’s possible the old bike will still be sold alongside it. But the likelihood is that Yamaha is waiting until the 2017 for any updates to what is now one of the oldest bikes in its line-up. From January 1 2017 all new bikes in Europe will have to meet Euro4 emissions rules and have ABS; the R6 doesn’t meet either requirement, so a revamp or complete replacement at that stage is inevitable.
