Yamaha Announces New 2009 FZ6R Motorcycle

Yamaha Announces New 2009 FZ6R Motorcycle.

With the 2009 FZ6R Yamaha is redefining what to expect from an entry level sport bike. That’s why the FZ6R is packed with features that belie its price point; like a torquey 600cc four cylinder engine, fuel injection and a sleek full fairing. New comers to the sport will especially appreciate the low seat height and handlebars that put the rider comfortably in control and anyone can appreciate build quality usually reserved for models costing thousands of dollars more.

Starting with the proven power plant from our championship winning supersport bikes the engine in the FZ6R has been optimized for smooth, usable power. The cylinder head, crankcase, intake and exhaust system and clutch and shifter have been designed to create an entirely new engine character. The end result is a fun to ride motorcycle that will appeal to entry-level riders that they won’t soon outgrow.

An all new diamond-shaped steel frame keeps the seat height low enough to comfortably reach the ground while allowing responsive handling. A solidly mounted engine allows for the optimum balance of high vertical rigidity and comparatively low lateral rigidity for stability at speed and sharp cornering performance.

Stylish bodywork lends the FZ6R a sporty aggressive look, borrowing aggressive lines from the YZF-R series with more extensive wind protection to match the more upright seating position. A low mount exhaust keeps the mass centralized while adding to the aggressive modern look of the bike.

Now what’s your excuse for not getting the cool sportbike you always wanted?

The new FZ6R will be available in dealerships nationwide beginning in January 2009 with a starting MSRP of $6,990. The 2009 FZ6R will be available in Team Yamaha Blue/White, Pearl White, Cadmium Yellow and Raven.
