Yamaha is contemplating to launch their super sports motorcycle R6 in India but it will take some time. This middle weight beast will roam on Indian roads only by this year end. Looking at the aggressive pricing of the Ninja 650R, Yamaha may also price R6 very aggressively. You can accept the motorcycle to be in the price range of Rs. 6-6.5 lakhs.
