The YB6 EXUP is a transitional model as it is really a YB8. It is distinguished only by the colouring. This may lead to confusion so it is easier to understand it you think of it as a special version of the YB6. It is interesting to note that this was the last bike designed and built by Ing. Martini as he resigned a week after its presentation.:
