2016 Yamaha FZ6R

The 2016 Yamaha FZ6R may have a four-cylinder motor, but that doesn’t stop it from having good bottom-end boost, well as a smooth powerband that is extremely forgiving.

You can ride the FZ6R hard, thanks to predictable handling and appropriately calibrated suspension, and have a rewarding experience. Of course, this mid-size sport upright can do so much more; the FZ6R can be a great commuter or local sport-tourer, and returning riders will love it and much as those newer to the sport.
