Small, light and powerful, the all-new Yamaha FZ-09 is priced right coming in at under $8,000. This is an all-around motorcycle that can take you to work during the week or hit the open road for adventure.

The FZ-09 hits one of the hottest segments of the market. A “naked” bike, it combines sport bike performance with a stripped down design.

The FZ-09 is powered by a fuel-injected, 847cc three-cylinder engine with a four-valve cylinder head and an equal firing interval, which Yamaha calls “crossplank crank.” There’s also a six-speed manual gearbox, steel and aluminum chassis, an adjustable inverted fork, rear single-shock suspension and triple-disc brakes. Curb weight is only 414 lbs.

Riders will feel free to wrap themselves around the bike because of a narrow seat and fuel tank design. This nimble ride comes with a heavy blast of bottom-end torque for great cornering, and when you hit 5,000 RPMs the power train roars to life.

Performance components include Yamaha’s YCC-T ride-by-wire throttle system, D-mode with three throttle position settings, adjustable suspension, variable throttle intake lengths.

MSRP: $7,990
Seems to me that she just read some highlights. Copy. Paste. But at least the bike was on her list to copy and paste about. But even then she didn't get some things right. Care to play a game of "Find the Foibles"?!?

What happened to journalists, man?

The US Won't Get the Yamaha MT-07... Yet

Mar 14, 2014 - 11:53 AM - by NickJ

Yamaha’s new bikes using the Crossplane engines are surely to become big-selling hits, and the MT-09, also marketed as the FZ-09 in the US is steadily climbing up in the sales figures. Knowing that the Crossplane engine is one of the things which was missing from its line-up, at a wider scale, Yamaha was quick to deliver the new MT-07 parallel twin naked beast.

Slotting right under the acclaimed and extremely affordable MT-09, the new machine aims at drawing in young customers on a tighter budget, but with rather high expectations. Unfortunately, it looks like Yamaha is not bringing this new bike to North America, and only has eyes for Europe and some Eastern markets, so far.

The video below is the latest teaser Yamaha surfaced, starring the new MT-09, the MT-09 Street Rally Valentino Rossi first introduced and the new, smaller MT-07 beast. The latter is a689cc parallel-twin machine boasting the same lightweight construction and excellent mileage. The 270-degree lump is good for just under 75 HP @ 9000 rpm and 68 Nm (50 lb-ft) of torque at 6500 rpm.

With a seat height of 805mm (31.7”) and tipping the scales at only 179 kg (395 lbs) wet, the 6-speed, chain-driven 2014 Yamaha MT-07 is surely a dream bike among young riders, especially as the price is expected to be somewhere under the $7,000 (€5,000) mark, given that MT-09 is $7,990 (€5.835).

Meet the MT-09 Based, WorldCrosser

Meet the MT-09 Based, WorldCrosser-yamaha-mt-09-triple-worldcrosser-concept-oberdan-bezzi-77386-7.jpg

Welcome the Worldcrosser, Oberdan Bezzi's latest concept, based on the already coveted Yamaha MT-09.

The Yamaha MT-09 (or FZ-09, as it it marketed in some countries including the US) managed to bring a very hefty breath of fresh air into the industry, as it came with very nifty looks, great specs and a very good price. And seeing designer use it as the starting point for new concept is only natural.

Bezzi chose the triple-cylinder mill as the power unit for an enduro derivation of the MT-09 chassis, using taller and more compliant suspensions, able to tackle both long asphalt roads and unsealed territory.

The tires are obviously knobbies, and auxiliary fuel tanks are also a must. The bike should be a solo one, with space intelligently used for accommodating navigation and touring gear.
