Fz-6r

Wow, I can't believe that I haven't seen anything about this bike until this post.

I think this would make an excellent beginner bike. Looks like a really good choice.

they are hitting the floors~

My dealer got the blue one in and called me to come check it out...and I LIKEY ALOT....I ordered the yellow and wont be in for another month but glad he called. The adjustability in the bars and seat are way innovative and It seems nice and narrow.

I also see yamaha is starting to get some test bikes to the mags and the reviews are just want I was looking for in a bike.. I think if people really take a hard look at it this could be best bike of the year for commuters not pure sportsters.!!

Cant wait!!

Yeah, its Z, which zxrider correctly refers and the OP did in his title. Just fat-fingered the body.

I got to see one recently in a local shop and thought it was pretty cool. I gotta say though that the Max was surprisingly cool when I got to see it first-hand.

Yep..its the FZ6R....and YEP...FAT FINGERS.....

I see some rides posted on youtube so they are getting out there. Dealer here in NY should have mine in another week or two....

Yesterday was 60 and today its snowing so.....I Love the yellow..I just wish a better Graphic than Stars could have thought up.....but......will just watch the aftermarket community....LOL

Saw them at the IMS in Greenville. Pretty cool looking! They needed something like a starter bike, fo sho, though I still don't think any newb needs anything bigger than a 500.

Well, I'm not as fixated on engine size as I am on hp and how its derived :2cents:

As for the FZ, I too am glad to see them offering something new and cool that's more street-minded and sporty.
