Good move on the Yamaha FZ-1 for that gal has a lot of torque & speed if asked. ALSO it is a sensible bike for two up. Many a sportbike rider that had the money & still wanted his sportbike found the FZ-1 was the ideal bike for their g/f or wife to ride on. So in my mind you have the ideal bike.

Though not all of the riders have the money for a glob of bikes again the FZ-1 is the bike with 1000cc.

Yea that was the other thing. I diffently new I wanted a litre bike for the street. But this bike is anywhere from 2 to 3k cheaper then an R1. and its also about the same price as an R6 dependiing on what model u get.

From what I have read this has about 130hp or to the rear wheel and something like 70tq. where the R6 is like 100hp 50tq

Has a lot of good things to in besides the looks & the dual saddle, but also slightely lower compression ratio& change in the cams so better pull at the lower revs then an R-1 & for many the skelton form of the bike is more to thier liking then a full fairing.

See yamahafz1oa.com for any questions. Great bike.
I'm all over that thanks for the heads up. My user name is a little different on that site. This site is the only site I didn't change my user name on out of the fourms I go to. Shortly haver I got my 01 r6 I changed my user name to EdgeR6, Which was part of my truck. 01 ford ranger edge. which I no longer have. but I have stayed with that name since. So genreally now any site that I sign up for I try for edgeR6
