The 2011 Yamaha FZ line includes the Yamaha FZ1, Yamaha FZ 6 R, and Yamaha FZ 8. The Yamaha FZ 8 is a new introduction to the U.S. for 2011, having previously been sold only to overseas markets. While having a lot of features in common with the FZ1, the FZ 8 is a compromise between a 600-cc bike and a 1.0-liter bike like the Yamaha R1-based FZ1 or those offered by some competitors. Prices for the 2011 Yamaha FZ 8 in particular are significantly lower than the price for the 2010 Yamaha FZ1. As the economy struggles, this point is a notable check in the positive column.
Offering more speed and power with the chassis of a sport bike, the Yamaha FZ line is also a comfortable ride on the street. This allows for a unique mixture of the two groups. A specific target demographic will be itching to get their hands on these bikes as a result. The design of these bikes, particularly the FZ 6 R, along with enviable performance, makes this line stand out among the competition in a notable manner.
The Yamaha FZ series draw riders in with sleek looks and stand-out colors. The bikes offer a European style that isn’t available in other rides, all while including features that American riders require. Riders remain interested as a result of the bike’s impressive road-hugging capability and reliable steering that make for the best possible ride.
