2016 Yamaha FZ-09

Powered by an exhilarating 847cc motor that taps the Crossplane Crankshaft Concept technology from MotoGP, the 2016 Yamaha FZ-09 is as much fun to ride in the canyons as it is through the urban jungle.

The power deliver is highly linear, while the motor itself is physically narrow. Weighing in at 414 pounds wet, the FZ-09 is agile in all riding situations. Although the 41mm inverted forks are not adjustable, and the linkage shock can only be adjusted for spring preload and rebound damping, the factory settings will be satisfactory for a wide number of street riders.
