I currently ride a 700 Yamaha Maxim and I'm only a couple weeks away from buying a FZ-09. I need some input on what the FZ-09 is truly like, in comparison to what I ride. I have been told to expect %100 more power in comparison, and power wheelie when I want to up to 3rd gear at least. Is this information correct?

I had a 650 maxim as my 1st bike....I really enjoyed it. The FZ is going to be very different, more than twice as fast, handling is way better...the FZ is a superior machine....however the maxim was a bit more comfortable.
Good luck, nice choice of bikes!

Comfort wise, you may be disappointed in the seat in comparison to the Maxim. Comparatively, everything performance wise will inspire and amaze you... truly! :)
