Hello. There are a few reasons for my interest in the FZ09. I currently own a (3) cylinder motorcycle and really like it (2007
Triumph Rocket III Classic Tourer). It is my second (First, was a 2008 Triumph Sprint ST).

I have been looking at the Ducati Hyperstrada and Yamaha FZ8 as potential future possibilities. I want to go mid range in power and performance again.

My other bike is currently a 2005 Suzuki DR650SE that I use as an all weather work commuter. It is adequate, but lacking at times.

The Rocket is a fine handling machine, but I am getting older and want to downsize.

The FZ09 is light (414 pounds), powerful (115 HP), a hypermotard ?, (3) cylinder, gets good gas mileage ?, and is reasonably affordable.

Yamaha gained my interest this year with the 2014 Yamaha Star Bolt. Now this bike. I will be honest, the headlight blows for me. I also need to have some soft panniers mounted for work and short trips.

Nice forum, thanks and keep up the good work.
