2015 Yamaha FZ-07 and FZ-09

Yamaha’s flagship triple nakeds – the FZ-07 and FZ-09 – are the first models to be released in its 2016 lineup of sport motorcycles.

Both midweight streetfighters – that feature MotoGP-inspired crossplane-concept crankshaft technology – return as carry-overs, but with new graphics. The bikes will arrive in USA dealerships in late summer.

When both of these machines arrived stateside, we were more than impressed – especially considering their prices, which don’t vary much for 2016. The FZ-07 retails for $6,990, and the FZ-09 for $8,190. Apparently, Yamaha customers were impressed, also; these are two of Yamaha’s top-four selling motorcycles.

The 2016 Yamaha FZ-07 arrives with a 689cc, crossplane-concept, liquid-cooled, inline, twin-cylinder, DOHC, 8-valve engine with fuel injection, which provides outstanding low- to mid-range torque with very linear throttle response. The motorcycle’s wheelbase, seat height, fuel tank width, rake, and other dimensions all work with the qualities of the compact twin-cylinder engine to achieve a sporty, light, and neutral handling character.

The 2016 Yamaha FZ-09 takes it one step further with more power and electronics. The ’16 FZ-09 arrives with a 847cc, crossplane-concept, liquid-cooled, inline, three-cylinder, fuel-injected engine that combines advanced, high-tech components, including YCC-T and Yamaha D-Mode, to deliver an exciting quick-revving engine character. The motorcycle’s wheelbase, seat height, fuel tank width, rake, and other dimensions provide an upright riding position and a narrow-feeling chassis at the seat/tank junction.

Yamaha offers endless customization options for its naked FZ-07 and FZ-09 sportbikes; the accessories include grips, saddlebags and mounts, cowlings, comfort seats, engine guards, seat cowls, and much more.

The 2016 FZ-07 arrives at dealerships in August, and will be available in two color options – Raven and Matte Silver. The 2016 FZ-09 arrives in September in either Raven or Impact Blue.
