  2020 Thunder Valley National Motocross 250 Class Race Report Justin Cooper captures first overall victory this year and second of career.“It was a good weekend for myself and the team,” Cooper said. “We got a win under our belt, and it feels dang good!

For 2021 , Yamaha is taking the YZF - R 6 off the streets and focusing its famed weapon on the track. Yamaha says the bike is aimed at everyone, from those who take their trackdays seriously to national-level supersport racers . That’s a drumbeat the R 6 has beaten since it was unleashed in 1999.

We get into the details of the all-new 2021 Yamaha YZF - R 6 Race — a track-prepped R 6 for European consumption.

Although we’re going to have to say goodbye to Yamaha’s stalwart YZF-R6 at the end of 2020, the Tuning Fork brand is keeping the legendary supersport badge alive in 2021 in the form of the track-only 2021 Yamaha YZF-R6 Race. It’s not clear whether the R6 Race will be available stateside, but European markets will be treated to a trackday weapon that can be further sweetened with a GYTR race kit.
