Yamaha R6 (2017) Motorcycle Hire

Yamaha R6 (2017)

Refined. Redesigned. Remarkable - The Yamaha YZF-R6 is a legend! On the street and with 3 Supersport World titles in recent years also on the race track. One ride on this MotoGP-bred racer and you enter the exciting world. Featuring newly developed low-drag bodywork and an aggressive look that bears all the characteristics of Yamaha's thoroughbred R-series DNA, the new YZF-R6 has arrived. And with its advanced electronics and next level aerodynamics, the YZF-R6 gives you extreme supersport performance with absolute control.

MCN Review

Yamaha's designers had one problem with superceding its 2006-07 R6, and that was how to improve a motorcycle that was very good in the first place. But improve it they have with clever attention to details borne from its World Supersport racing program. A designer's touch here and the same effort there, has led to the Yamaha R6 being the definitive supersport package - on the track, that is. How its screaming performance will fare on UK roads against the mid-range king Honda CBR600RR remains to be seen.

Accessory Hire

SuperBike Rental has a great selection of accessories to hire alongside our motorcycles.
We have protective jackets, trousers, helmets and gloves in all sizes. All of our bikes can be fitted with some sort of luggage option, such as hard lockable panniers and top box or the Ventura luggage system. We have tank bags to fit some models and GPS/Sat Navs to fit all of our bikes.


Ventura Luggage Hire

Ventura aerodynamic bike pack system is individually engineered to the requirements of the bike to ensure there is no load shift whether riding solo or with a passenger.  Because the load is positioned behind rather than to the sides, the rider has greater manoeuvre ability in traffic and less wind resistance on the open road. This system a carrying capacity of 51 litres

Absolutely fantastic. What can I say. If you want to hire a bike then this is the place to go. Real friendly staff and massive choice of bikes. I learnt not to hesitate in hiring as I lost out on the chance of the 899 Ducati but still had loads of fun on the R6 2017. My advice if they have the bike you want available don't wait to check with the missus.......just book it. Will defiantly be back next season.......maybe for longer than the weekend, will see what the boss says. Back to the point, I highly recommend these guys. You won't be disappointed. Thanks.

Thanks again for the stunning brand new R6 that I hired the weekend. Second year in a row I've hired a bike from Superbike Rental.Easy booking process, competitive pricing and great customer service. A wide range of bikes to hire which makes it hard to decide which one to rent! My second year in a row hiring a bike from you. Trina is clear, concise and prompt with her emails. Brian in the yard is easy going and great with the bikes. See you again next year.

I hired a 125 from you fairly recently which was in perfect condition [and returned in such condition...sorry, used to be a lawyer] and allowed me to practice for my DAS. I am now the proud possessor of my A licence. Many thanks for all your help. I have distributed your cards to my training school so I hope that bears fruit. They were surprised not to have heard of such an excellent facility for top of the range bikes for hire. [They're Ducati fiends] If I can do anything further to promote you in my neck of the woods, please let me know. [Also, please would you add a Kawasaki H2 to your inventory]

Just wanted to thank you once again, specially Mark and Brian, for the great service we got from you.

My partner will certainly remember this birthday for many years and I will surely struggle to get him at least an as much appreciated present next year :)

I first contacted Superbike Rental after wanting to test the Yamaha R6 as I am looking to purchase one when I move to New Zealand. I thought it would be a good idea to ensure it suited me and I would not be disappointed. Having looked around at a few companies, Superbike Rental were by far the best and most informative. Their website gave a full accurate insight into what was available where as many of the others just showed 'similar models'. I emailed Brian who was very good in responding and answering my questions. He went the extra mile in explaining he could lend me clothing as my clothing was already on its way to New Zealand. Once I called up to pay he went through everything with me in thorough detail and ensured I understood everything.

When I went to pick up the Yamaha, it was ready and waiting. The bike was immaculate and you can see that the guys at Superbike Rental clearly take great care. After sorting out the admin bits I was given a range of jackets, gloves and helmets to find the best fit. All the clothing was clean and tidy, which has not always been the case when I have used bike rental companies previously. I was then taken over to the bike and had everything explained to me. The guys were really patient and were really kind, even going as far as driving it out the front of the garage so I had a free run. The bike was great!

I could not believe how great the guys were when I returned the bike. They took great interest in asking how I found it and even gave me a lift back to Brentwood station.

If you are looking to rent a bike then choose Superbike Rental.

"Delighted to say, I had a great few days on the R6.  The bike was in excellent nick, a 2012 limited edition 50th anniversary model.

The bike packs a lot of punch although very drivable and easy to get used to.

It was my transport to and from London and to the MotoGP weekend in Silverstone. Thank you all to the crew at Superbike for a very memorable experience"
