Yamaha XJ 600 Diversion

Yamaha 600 Diversion is a 600cc all-round touring bike with a four-stroke eight valve (2 valves for each cylinder) inline-four engine. Production was started in 1991 and lasted to 2004. This model of Yamaha is dedicated for novice bikers together with a group of similar motorcycles which are quite easy to ride (Suzuki GS 500, Honda CB 500, Kawasaki ER-5 and Kawasaki GPZ 500). It is a very universal bike, so it's used as a street bike and as a touristic one. XJ 600 Diversion has low maintenance costs. In 2009 Yamaha introduced the new model called XJ6, which has 16 valves liquid-cooled engine.
