Nicknamed “street brawler” by Yamaha, the FZ1 features a 998cc, liquid-cooled, horizontal in-line, DOHC, four-stroke engine and a six-speed manual transmission. The FZ1 has front dual hydraulic disc brakes and rear hydraulic disc brakes. Fuel injection with computer-controlled sub-throttle valves ensures the correct fuel/air mixture for optimum power delivery across the entire rev range. The bike has narrow-angle five-valve combustion chambers that help produce an impressive 11.5:1 compression ratio. The high silicon-content ceramic-composite cylinder lining minimizes friction and boosts heat dissipation for reliable power delivery. With carburized connecting rods with fracture split big ends the bike offers a quick-revving engine with exceptional high-rpm durability. The FZ1 comes equipped with a four-into two-into-one short-style exhaust system with exhaust ultimate power. The rider can enjoy power throughout the FZ1’s extensive rpm range while following all emission requirements.
