2016 Yamaha FZ-07 | Motorcycle Buyer’s Guide

2016 Yamaha FZ-07 priceIt started with the four-cylinder R1, migrated to the FZ-09 triple, and now the MotoGP-inspired Crossplane Concept 270-degree crankshaft makes its way to a twin—the FZ-07.

Designed to improve torque, smooth engine pulses and keep the motor narrow, the Crossplane Concept is a proven design. The FZ-07 has a compact steel frame that keeps the wet weight under 400 pounds. Other features include cast-aluminum wheels, 41mm forks, laid-down linkage rear shock, and a new transmission design that reduces front-to-back engine size.
