2017 Yamaha FZ-09


2017 Yamaha FZ-09


The new FZ®-09's powerful 847cc in-line 3-cylinder crossplane crankshaft concept engine and new refinements deliver huge thrills, style and class-leading performance.

Additional Features

  • COMFORTABLE, UPRIGHT ERGONOMICS: Enjoy every ride thanks to upright ergonomics that balance front-end feedback with do-it-all practicality. The tapered aluminum handlebar, ideal placement of the seat and footpegs, and ultra-narrow frame and fuel tank create an excellent sense of feel between rider and machine. The new seat is flatter for improved rider comfort, and roomier for a passenger, too.
  • NEW LED LIGHTING: In addition to compact new turn signals, the new FZ-09 features LED headlights for brilliant illumination. The quad headlight unit produces a crisp spread of light for confidence in low-light conditions, and is matched to a new 3D taillight design for head-turning style.
  • AGGRESSIVE NEW STYLING: The 2017 FZ-09 features an aggressive style with a higher quality and more modern look, centered on the new floating-style headlight unit with quad LED headlights. New radiator shrouds and air scoops give a more unified, mass-forward appearance, accentuated by the shortened tail section. And a new swingarm-mounted fender gives the FZ-09 a stunning new profile unlike anything in the FZ range.
  • READY TO ACCESSORIZE: The 2017 FZ-09 is ready for a range of Genuine Yamaha accessories, including windscreens, luggage and more. Performance-minded riders can also install a new Quick Shift System to allow for clutchless full-throttle upshifts for maximum acceleration.

Chassis / Suspension

  • POWERFUL BRAKES WITH ABS: The FZ-09’s front brakes consist of paired floating 298 mm discs with radial-mount, 4-piston calipers, backed up by a 245 mm rear rotor, creating an ideal combination of power and feel. For 2017, the FZ-09 now comes standard with an Anti-lock Braking System (ABS), for additional security when slowing in less than ideal conditions.


  • ADVANCED 3-CYLINDER ENGINE: The FZ-09 is powered by an 847cc liquid-cooled, inline 3-cylinder, DOHC engine with downdraft intake and ride-by-wire throttle control. With a 78.0 x 59.1 mm bore x stroke and 11.5:1 compression ratio, it produces an exciting, torquey and quick-revving engine character, perfectly splitting the best characteristics of both 2- and 4-cylinder motors in a compact, lightweight package.
  • OFFSET CYLINDER BLOCK: The CP3 engine mounts its three cylinder bores 5 mm forward, towards the exhaust side. This offset reduces piston to cylinder wall friction, for more power and improved fuel economy.
