Yamaha FZ1 and FZ1 FAZER

Yamaha will debut on the Japanese market the new sports model “FZ1” (without cowling) and its tourer variation model “FZ1 FAZER” with a semi-cowl and a number of touring features on February 28, 2008.
Both Yamaha FZ1 and FZ1 FAZER models mount a lightweight, compact high-performance 1000cc, liquid-cooled, 4-stroke DOHC, in-line-4, 5-valve engine inherited from Yamaha’s proud supersport flagship, the YZF-R1 (2004 European model spec).

Based on the popular European models FZ1 and FZ1 FAZER, these new models have been developed to fit the needs of the Japanese riding environment under the key words “Emotional Urban Sport FZ1” and “Emotional Touring Sport FZ1 FAZER” with the aim of providing a new-generation big bike with a high-performance engine that lets riders enjoy both exhilarating around-town riding and touring in the countryside.
