2012 Yamaha FZ1 | Quick Look

2012 Yamaha Motorcycle

Given glowing reviews by the Yamaha Champions Racing School in Utah, the FZ1 is arguably the most underestimated motorcycle in Yamaha’s lineup.

Powered by an earlier version of its flagship YZF-R1 (and therefore without the crossplane crankshaft) the 20-valve FZ1 is incredibly fast and has had its quirky fuel injection issues long cured.

Firm, fully adjustable suspension and a sporting chassis allow impeccable and agile handling coupled with stable road manners.

The aggressive ergonomics and truly confidence-inspiring ride make this a sportbike through and through.
