Probably to fit in with the other bikes in the MT- / FZ- line up.

Why not give it a name? I tell people I have an FZ-09 and it confuses the shit out of them.

I think it was to fit with the other MT bikes in Europe. MT-01, MT-03 etc. Probably called it the FZ-09 in the states to match with MT-09 across the pond.

Ok, I agree which is why I added the "MT9" as part of my question.. Why start with the "0" in the first place? MT1, MT3, etc... I'm sure it's one of those questions we'll really never have answer to.

Presumably the FZ1 was just shorthand for liter bike. So technically speaking, it should be the FZ-.9

I thought the switch up was a bit confusing as well considering they didn't do it with the FZ-8. Go figure.
