The Yamaha FZ-09 is synonymous with style, comfort, performance and speed, making it one of the most desirable (and affordable) naked street fighters today. This is a bike that makes you rethink your riding style and wardrobe, and has prompted the industry the goods to make you look like a superstar in the saddle.

The Yamaha FZ-09 is powered by a liquid-cooled 847cc inline 3-cylinder DOHC engine with downdraft intake and ride-by-wire throttle control. Remember, this is a Yamaha street fighter, which means quick-revving and torquey all day long. And the triple designation refers to a host of features, including three staggered intake funnels to spread the torque, and a mass-centralized 3-into-1 exhaust system featuring a short, slash-cut exhaust outlet placed as central and low to increase handling.

Additional features include adjustable traction control, D-Mode system with three throttle valve control maps (Standard, "A" and "B"), adjustable inverted 41mm fork and horizontal Monocross rear shock, aluminum 10-spoke wheels, and ABS.

The Yamaha FZ-09 is priced at $8,999, and comes in three colors: Candy Red, Matte Silver and Intensity White.

Thoughts from the Staff

“All in all, Yamaha has taken one of our favorite motorcycles and made it even better. As impressive as the 2017 FZ-09 is, however, the most impressive thing might be that it offers all of these additional features at a price just $800 higher than last year.” Brian Catterson - Contributor, Cycle World Magazine
