2004 Yamaha FZ1 Review

2004 Yamaha FZ1

Everyday Comfort Coupled with Razor Sharp Handling and Open Class Power…

Derived from the legendary R1, the FZ1 packs a huge amount of horsepower (140+) and torque into a chassis that handles like a superbike yet is comfortable enough to ride all day long.

For the rider who likes sportbike performance but prefers more comfortable ergonomics. The FZ1 offers a more traditional upright seating position, yet sacrifices nothing in terms of engine and handling performance.

Just like the R1, the FZ1 has set the standard for sporting street motorcycles. Providing uncompromised performance in a comfortable, all-around package.

Cycle World, May 2002 stated… “While it’s impossible to please all of the people all of the time, the FZ1 manages to come remarkably close.”
