The 2013 Yamaha FZ comes in three models: FZ 1, FZ 8, and FZ 6 R. The FZ 1 and FZ 8 models have standard body styles. The FZ R 6 has a sport body style. Each of these models were introduced at various times. Production of the FZ 1 began in 2001. The FZ 6 R was introduced in 2009. Yamaha introduced the FZ 8 in 2011. Having three separate models allows Yamaha to offer more variety to customers. The 2013 Yamaha FZ R 6, for instance, has a displacement of 600 cc while the FZ 8 offers 779 cc and the FZ 1 has 998 cc. Despite some differences in body style, seating, and performance, though, all of these models have a lot in common. The differences lie in the details. Of course, the FZ 1, as a larger vehicle, will appeal to those who prefer the rumble and power of a traditional motorcycle. Those who want a quick, stealthy feel can turn to the smaller models. Either way, the Yamaha FZ can meet the needs of most motorcycle riders who want to enjoy the open road with a reliable vehicle between their legs.
