The ergonomic equation is take-no-prisoners compact: less room for gangly arms and legs. Inside the cockpit, modern electronics compress instrumentation into one round LCD instrument pod. The digital speedometer is surrounded by a bar-graph tach, complete with a tantalizing, 15,500-rpm redline. Moving beyond the typical array of idiot lights, 6R instrumentation includes a shift light--programmable from 12,000 to 16,000 rpm--to signal the rev limit's imminent arrival. There's also a stopwatch--triggered by new handlebar switch gear--that can remember your last 99 laps on track day.
