Yamaha FZ-09 And FZ-07 To Return In 2016

Jun 12, 2015 - 12:46 PM - by NickJ

Cypress, CA - June 4, 2015 – Yamaha Motor Corporation, U.S.A., today introduced the 2016 FZ-07 and FZ-09, which are the company’s first two models in its 2016 line-up of sportbikes.

The FZ-07 features a 689cc, crossplane-concept, liquid-cooled, inline, twin-cylinder, DOHC, 8-valve engine with fuel injection, which provides outstanding low- to mid-range torque with very linear throttle response. The motorcycle’s wheelbase, seat height, fuel tank width, rake, and other dimensions all work with the qualities of the compact twin-cylinder engine to achieve a sporty, light, and neutral handling character.

The FZ-09’s 847cc, crossplane-concept, liquid-cooled, inline, three-cylinder, fuel-injected engine combines advanced, high-tech components, including YCC-T® and Yamaha D-Mode, to deliver an exciting quick-revving engine character. The motorcycle’s wheelbase, seat height, fuel tank width, rake, and other dimensions provide an upright riding position and a narrow-feeling chassis at the seat/tank junction.

Yamaha offers a complete range of add-ons and accessories for the FZ-07 and FZ-09, including grips, saddlebags and mounts, cowlings, comfort seats, engine guards, seat cowls, and much more.

The 2016 FZ-07 will be available at dealerships beginning in August in two color options--Raven and Matte Silver--and will retail for $6,990.

The 2016 FZ-09 will also be available in Raven, as well as Impact Blue, and will retail for $8,190. Both color options will be available in dealerships beginning in September.

Yamaha Issues an FZ09 Recall

Apr 10, 2015 - 9:31 AM - by NickJ
Yamaha Issues an FZ09 Recall-yellow-fz09.jpg

On March 25, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration issued a recall notice for six 2015 Yamaha models that may have been manufactured with a shift cam segment stopper than can crack and cause shifting difficulties that may lead to a crash:

The details:
Report Receipt Date: March 25, 2015
NHTSA Campaign Number: 15V176000
Component(s): Powertrain
Potential Number of Units Affected: 4,900
Manufacturer: Yamaha Motor Corporation, USA

The Recall: Yamaha Motor Corporation, USA (Yamaha) is recalling certain model year 2015 FJ-09 (FJ09F/FC), FZ-09 (FZ09F/FC), FZ6R (FZ6RF/FC), Super Ténéré (XTZ12F/FC), Super Ténéré ES (XTZ12EF/EFC), and R6 (YZF-R6) motorcycles manufactured from September 1, 2014 to November 17, 2014. The affected motorcycles may have an incorrectly manufactured shift cam segment stopper, having a sharp edge on the inside of the bend instead of a smooth radius. As a result, the stopper can crack and possibly fracture at this sharp edge.
What could happen: If the stopper fractures, the transmission may not shift properly, increasing the risk of a crash.

The Fix: Yamaha will notify owners, and dealers will replace the shift shaft assembly with a new one, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin in April 2015. Owners may contact Yamaha customer service at 1-800-962-7926.

More Recall Information: Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go tosafercar.gov.


I realize that this might be old news, but I wanted something new on the front page, so there. Read it again.

Video review: Yamaha's MT-09 (FZ-09) puts the fun right where you want it

It's taken me about nine years, but I finally understand what Yamaha's going on about with its "torque sports" MT range. After spending a couple of weeks with the MT-09 (or FZ-09 as it's known in America), I'm convinced. Not only is Yamaha on the right track, but the MT-09 is the kind of machine that could cause a mini-revolution in the motorcycle market. Lightweight, super cheap and blessed with one of the best new engines we've seen in years, the MT is barrel-of-monkeys level fun in just about any real-world riding context. And boy did we have fun putting this video together!

The MT-09 starts out with a brand spanking new, 847cc, three cylinder crossplane engine that sits awkwardly in between the middleweights and the liter bikes, somewhere in no man’s land. That engine slots into an overgrown street supermoto body, kinda similar to the Ducati Hypermotard or Husqvarna Nuda, but with a slightly wider seat.

Personally I don’t reckon it’s much of a looker. It’s better in person than in pictures, but the proportions seem a bit wonky and front-heavy. The headlight looks like they forgot some plastic somewhere, the dash is kind of tacky and off-center and all three paint jobs are pretty ordinary, with the best of the bunch being this "racing blue" one with the lairy wheels on it. Yamaha usually makes the best looking Japanese bikes in my opinion, but this one's a bit of a munter.

So given that motorcycle riders tend to be notoriously image-conscious, how did this thing become one of the hottest selling bikes of 2014? Well, it comes down to two things – that engine, and an amazing price tag. It's an absolute bargain.

Once you're on the road, the first thing you notice is how light and nimble it feels. Wet weight is about 188 kg (414 lb), and it's very narrow in the middle. The second thing you notice is the engine – whooooo, it's a stunner.

Triumph had the market cornered on modern triple engines for a fair few years there, but they couldn't stay a secret for long. Three cylinders delivers the perfect mix of characteristics for a road bike – grunty and torquey down low, smooth and predictable through the rev range, and they keep pulling as the revs get higher. Take a look at the MT's fat torque curve below, big fat twisting muscle right through the rev range. I've put in the GSX-R600 for comparison and the difference in development philosophies should be instantly evident.
