TOTAL BLAST – TOTAL DEAL – FZ-09
The FZ-09’s powerful 847cc in-line 3-cylinder crossplane crankshaft concept engine delivers huge torque combined with a lightweight chassis and slim design for incredible handling.
The 2015 FZ-09, a naked sports roadster powered by a liquid-cooled, 850 cc in-line 3-cylinder, fuel-injected engine. The FZ-09 has been developed around the concept of a “Synchronized Performance”, that allows a rider to enjoy the feeling of complete control in typical everyday riding situations. In other words, the FZ-09 has been designed to respond to your every command.
Liquid-cooled 4-stroke, 850cc in-line 3-cylinder fuel-injected engine with a downdraft intake. The engine has been tuned to provide plenty of low to mid-range torque with strong yet linear throttle response.
/// 3 into 1 Exhaust
Stylish, compact, low mounted, 3 into 1 exhaust system features stainless steel header pipes with special “Nano-film” coating to help prevent rusting and discolouration.
Stylish, one piece, multi-reflector 65/55 watt halogen headlight highlights the naked roadster styling of the FZ-09.
Yamaha FZ-09 is the MT-09 in Europe:
Yamaha MT-09 is a whole new concept in sport bike design. With a compact new chassis and high-torque 3-cylinder engine, this new generation performance machine is designed for riders who appreciate character and soul.
The beating heart of this new kind of animal is a lightweight 850cc 3-cylinder engine that kicks out a wide band of raw, linear torque giving outstanding acceleration that gets your adrenaline flowing.
And for agile handling this dynamic new naked motard-style bike is equipped with a compact aluminium chassis and upright riding position that make light work of everything – from weekday urban riding through to Sunday morning blasts.
2016 Yamaha FZ-09 www.Totalmotorcycle.com Key Features
847cc liquid-cooled, in-line 3-cylinder, DOHC, 12-valve engine with fuel injection. This FZ-09™ engine combines advanced high tech components including YCC-T® and Yamaha D-Mode, with a crossplane concept crankshaft to deliver an exciting, torquey and quick-revving engine character.
“Crossplane Crankshaft Concept” provides linear torque development in response to the rider’s throttle input. The FZ-09’s in-line 3-cylinder engine provides linear torque development, even firing intervals for smooth torque characteristics and a good feeling of power in the low- to mid-rpm range. The CP3® engine is also light, slim and compact and offers performance that combines the best characteristics of both 2-cylinder and 4-cylinder engines.
The ride-by-wire Yamaha Chip Controlled Throttle (YCC-T) system senses the slightest throttle input by the rider, relays the data to the ECU, which instantaneously calculates the ideal throttle valve opening based on engine rpm and throttle opening, and then sends commands to a servo-motor actuator that moves the throttle valve which actively controls the intake airflow volume. This is a technology contributing to the rider’s feeling of torque and controllability from the 3-cylinder engine.
The FZ-09 is equipped with Yamaha’s D-MODE (“Drive Mode”) variable throttle control system to allow the rider to choose the optimum engine character for their riding situation. The rider can choose from three throttle valve control maps (Standard Mode, “A” Mode, and “B” Mode) for different performance characteristics at the push of a button. STD Mode is set to accommodate a wide range of riding conditions, for a linear torque feeling from low speeds all the way up to high speeds. A-Mode gives the rider a sharper throttle response in the low-to mid-rpm range than the STD Mode, while B-Mode lets the rider enjoy milder throttle response.
2016 Yamaha FZ-09 www.Totalmotorcycle.com Features and Benefits
Advanced 3-Cylinder Engine
847cc liquid-cooled 4-stroke, in-line 3-cylinder, DOHC, 4-valve engine with downdraft intake and fuel injection. With a 78mm x 59.1mm bore x stroke and 11.5:1 compression ratio, it produces an exciting, torquey and quick-revving engine character.
•Crossplane Concept CP3® Engine
Some of the advantages of the 3-cylinder engine in the FZ-09 include linear torque development due to the even firing intervals that provide smooth torque characteristics and a good feeling of power up into the low- to mid-rpm range, as well as combining desirable characteristics of both 2-cylinder and 4-cylinder engines. In addition, the engine design can be light, slim and compact.
To reduce vibration and help give a smoother ride, the engine has a primary coupled-force balancer that revolves in the opposite direction and at the same speed as the crankshaft.
•Fracture-Split Connecting Rods
The forged connecting rods are made using the fracture split (FS) method to ensure a high degree of precision in the rod’s big-end ring for a precise fit and smoother crank revolution. The fracture split method is where the big-end ring of a connecting rod is split in two by applying a sharp impact. This creates a perfectly matching split surface that naturally produces a much more precise mating surface when they are bolted together again around the crankshaft.
•Unique Staggered Intake Funnels
To provide both exciting and quick revving torque characteristics and a unique intake sound, the 3-cylinder intake funnels have been designed with uneven lengths. The first cylinder funnel is 102.8mm, the second 82.8mm and the third is 122.8mm. This combines with the effects of the YCC-T system to contribute to an excellent torquey engine character.
•Compact 6-Speed Transmission
The FZ-09 transmission takes full advantage of the low-to-mid-range torque and excellent response characteristics of this in-line, 3-cylinder fuel-injected engine. The 6-speed transmission has been designed to be very compact, enhancing the overall narrow 3-cylinder design.
Compact, Sporty Chassis
The wheelbase, seat height, fuel tank width, rake and other dimensions are all set to work with the qualities of the compact 3-cylinder engine to achieve a sporty, light and neutral handling character, an upright riding position and a narrow feeling chassis at the seat/tank junction.
•Adjustable Inverted Fork
For excellent damping characteristics, the front suspension is an inverted fork with 41mm inner tubes with 5.4 inches of travel. The front suspension features adjustment for spring preload and rebound damping.
•Adjustable Horizontal Monocross® Shock
The rear suspension features a linked-type Monocross® shock. The shock is positioned below the seat and features an almost horizontal alignment. This unique positioning contributes to mass centralization and a slimmer body design. The rear suspension is also adjustable for spring preload and rebound damping.
10-spoke lightweight cast aluminum wheels are used, fitted with a 120/70ZR17 front tire and 180/55ZR17 rear tire. The tires have been designed with an optimally-tuned internal structure that contributes to good handling stability.
Front brakes consist of two floating 298mm discs with radially-mounted 4-pot opposed piston calipers.
The aluminum, tapered-type handlebars – a first for a Yamaha sportbike – provide a good balance of strength and light weight.
•Ergonomically Designed Fuel Tank
The fuel tank, with its deeply recessed knee grip area, contributes to a narrow seat/tank juncture.
•Stylish, Functional Mirrors
Compact, hexagonal-type rearview mirrors match the “mass forward” design of the rest of the bike.
•Advanced Instrumentation and Controls
A newly designed lightweight, compact, full LCD instrument panel is adopted. The tachometer has a digital bar-type display with gear position indicator. The electric starter button is a new slide-type that incorporates the engine cut-off switch for a modern, high-quality appearance.
The brake pedal, shift pedal and footrests are made of forged aluminum for light weight and excellent appearance.
The LED taillight has separate left and right lamps that illuminate when the taillight is on and across the entire lens when the brake light is on.
