A naked R1 is definitely Awesome but, I think I would still get the KTM, although maybe I need to see The FZ-10 in person.

Changed my vote from cool to awesome, yes it looks like It would transform and stand up at any time but more low to midrange power. Loads of fun is what this bike would be.

I (after changing my vote) decided on Cool (from Awesome)

LOVE, love the yellow wheels... oooo... but the front of the FZ-10... ugly as it is "incomplete" looking (to me anyways, but then again, I don't like the FZ-9 or FZ-07 fronts either).

What a wonderful engine though, wish they had that in the FZ1 days!!

As you all know, I love naked bikes! But the front... hmmm, I'd have to do SOMETHING to fix that. lol.

2017 Yamaha FZ-10 - Coolness Factor = 72.2%
Featured: June 10th - June 17th, 2016

Motorcycle Cool Wall discussion: viewtopic.php?f=61&t=53177
Total Motorcycle model page: http://www.totalmotorcycle.com/motorcyc ... a-FZ10.htm

Your Coolness Factor of the 2017 Yamaha FZ-10 Review is:

Awesome (3 points) 39% [ 7 ]
Cool (2 points) 39% [ 7 ]
Uncool (1 point) 22% [ 4 ]
Fail (0 point) 0% [ 0 ]

Total votes: 18

= a Coolwall Factor of 72.2%


Notes: It's funny, you know; you can really tell read a result of a bike that riders are just a little uncertain on how it will do. The new 2017 Yamaha FZ-10 did finish very well, with a score of 72% cool, but there wasn't a lot of comments or votes (might just be the summer riding season) and the votes were split but firmly in Cool territory. I think this is a bike that's hard to judge on studio photos and hard specs alone and will have to be judged by eye and the seat of the pants. What do you think?


Get excited as the next TMW Cool Wall bike for 2016 is now up for voting and discussion, have fun!
