2016 Yamaha FZ-07

IT ALL STARTS HERE

The ultimate sportbike for under $7K, the FZ-07 offers huge thrills and fun in a value packed light weight and nimble package.

Features

  • COMPACT, TORQUE-RICH ENGINE: The FZ-07 features an all-new 689cc liquid-cooled, in-line twin-cylinder, DOHC, 8-valve engine with fuel injection. This engine has a unique power character. It provides outstanding low- to mid-range torque with very linear throttle response, yet has as strong mid-high rpm pulling power as well. The engine develops up to 50 foot pounds of torque and is designed to maximize riding excitement in the real world.
  • CROSSPLANE CONCEPT: This 2-cylinder engine features Yamaha’s “Crossplane Concept,” 270 degree crank that provides linear torque development in response to the rider’s throttle input. Among the advantages of the inline 2-cylinder engine are: (1) linear torque development, (2) smooth torque characteristics and a strong feeling of acceleration in the low to mid rpm range, (3) pulling power that extends to the mid-upper rpm range (4) a light, slim and compact design, and (5) excellent level of rider/machine communication.
  • COMPACT FRAME DESIGN: A new lightweight, diamond-type, backbone high tensile steel frame provides an optimized rigidity balance for light, agile handling and stability. The engine is a stressed member of the chassis, allowing a lighter, more compact main frame design.
  • SPORTY CHASSIS DIMENSIONS: The wheelbase, seat height, fuel tank width, rake and other dimensions are all set to work with the qualities of the compact 2-cylinder engine to achieve a sporty, light and neutral handling character.
  • ADVANCED INSTRUMENTS: A newly designed lightweight, compact, full LCD instrument panel is adopted. The panel includes a digital bar-type tachometer display with gear position indicator, digital speedometer, odometer, dual trip meters, fuel gauge, fuel reserve trip meter, clock, instant and average fuel consumption and a range of warning and indicator lights.
  • ADVANCED 2-CYLINDER ENGINE: The FZ-07 features an all-new 689cc liquid-cooled, in-line twin cylinder, DOHC, 8-valve engine with fuel injection. This engine has a unique power character. It provides outstanding low to mid-range torque with very linear throttle response, yet provides strong mid-high rpm pulling power as well. The engine develops up to 50 foot pounds of torque and is designed to maximize riding excitement .
  • CROSSPLANE CONCEPT: This 2-cylinder engine features Yamaha’s “Crossplane Concept,” 270 degree crank that provides linear torque development in response to the rider’s throttle input. The FZ-07’s in-line 2-cylinder engine provides linear torque development, smooth torque characteristics and a strong feeling of acceleration in the low- to mid-rpm range along with pulling power that extends to the mid-upper rpm range. The CP2 engine is also light, slim and compact and offers an excellent level of rider/machine communication.
  • COMPACT, STACKED TRANSMISSION: A new 6-speed transmission has also been adopted to match the new engine. The transmission “stacks” the input/output shafts to centralize mass and to keep the overall engine size shorter front-to-back, which optimizes engine placement in the frame for outstanding weight balance. The new transmission brings out more of the low- to midspeed torque and excellent response characteristics while reducing the need for frequent shifts.
  • REFINED FUEL INJECTION: Electronic fuel injection system settings deliver a smooth throttle response to enhance around-town urban riding enjoyment. The system delivers outstanding torque in the low rpm range, excellent acceleration in the middle rpm range and strong rev characteristics in the upper rpm range.
  • COMPACT FRAME DESIGN: A new lightweight, diamond-type, backbone high-tensile-steel frame provides an optimized rigidity balance for light, agile handling and stability. The engine is a stressed member of the chassis, allowing a lighter, more compact main frame design.
  • BALANCED ERGONOMICS: The riding position on the FZ-07 is one of the most important features, offering balance between sporty handling and excellent rider comfort, thanks to its upright riding position.
  • SPORTY CHASSIS DIMENSIONS: The wheelbase, seat height, fuel tank width, rake and other dimensions are all set to work with the qualities of the compact 2-cylinder engine to achieve a sporty, light and neutral handling character.
  • STREET-FOCUSED SUSPENSION: The front suspension is handled by a 41mm fork with 5.1 inches of travel that is tuned to provide a balance of great comfort on the streets.
  • HORIZONTAL MONOCROSS® SHOCK: The rear suspension features an adjustable link-type Monocross shock that provides 5.1" of rear travel. The shock is positioned below the seat and features an almost horizontal alignment. This unique positioning contributes to make the body design more compact and optimize component. The rear suspension includes spring preload adjustment, allowing the rider to tailor the settings to match rider weight or load.
  • POWERFUL BRAKING: Front brakes consist of dual floating, wave-style 282mm discs with 4-pot opposed piston calipers. Rear braking is handled by a 245mm wave-style rear disc.
  • LIGHTWEIGHT WHEELS: Lightweight cast-aluminum 10-spoke cast aluminum wheels reduce unsprung weight for great handling and suspension performance. The 17-inch front wheel is fitted with a 120/70ZR-17 radial tire and the rear wheel sports a 180/55ZR-17 radial tire.
  • ERGONOMICALLY DESIGNED FUEL TANK: A slim 3.7 gallon fuel tank is both stylish and compact to provide excellent comfort and knee grip for rider confidence.
  • ADVANCED INSTRUMENTATION: A newly designed lightweight, compact, full LCD instrument panel is adopted. The panel includes a digital bar-type tachometer display with gear position indicator, digital speedometer, odometer, dual trip meters, fuel gauge, fuel reserve trip meter, clock, instant and average fuel consumption and a range of warning and indicator lights.
  • NEW-STYLE SWITCHGEAR: The electric starter button is an integrated slide-type button that also incorporates the engine cut-off switch for a modern, high quality appearance.
