IT ALL STARTS HERE ON THE NEW FZ-07

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


Conquer Road

The FZ-07 is a motorcycle that brings fun, affordability and riding enjoyment back to the street. This versatile naked roadster offers deep engine torque and a comfortable riding position in a lightweight, easy to handle sports chassis. It’s the perfect machine for both new and experienced riders alike who are looking for outstanding value.


/// Power
Liquid-cooled, 689cc, inline twin has been designed to provide deep, powerful torque in the most frequently used rpm range (3,000 to 6,500 rpm). A single balancer shaft keeps things silky smooth, while the 6-speed transmission with overdrive 6th gear reduces engine rpms at highway speeds and enhances the engine’s character.

/// Control
The 38mm Mikuni throttle body fuel injection system combines with the 270 degree “Crossplane Concept” CP2 crankshaft to provide easy to use linear throttle response, providing the rider with the ability to control the FZ-07 at will.


/// Style
From the compact “diamond type” frame to the single 60/55 watt headlight to the naked roadster bodywork, the FZ-07’s styling highlights its super lightweight of only 180 kgs (397 lbs). The conventional handlebar design and upright riding position translates into all day riding comfort.

 

Yamaha FZ-07 is the MT-07 in Europe:

The MT-07 is designed to bring fun, affordability and enjoyment back to the street. And just about everything about this versatile naked bike – from its deep torque through to the agile chassis and outstanding economy – make it hard to resist for both newer and experienced riders.

The 689cc inline 2-cylinder engine benefits from our special ‘crossplane philosophy’ which enables it to develop linear torque for outstanding acceleration. And the MT-07 is also equipped with a compact and lightweight chassis for remarkable agility and easy handling.

MT-07 from Yamaha. There’s never been a better reason to rise up and ride.


 



2016 Yamaha FZ-07 www.Totalmotorcycle.com Key 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 offers 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. 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 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.


 

2016 Yamaha FZ-07 www.Totalmotorcycle.com Features and Benefits

ENGINE:

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 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. 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.


 

CHASSIS/SUSPENSION:

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.

 

ADDITIONAL FEATURES:

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.
