The yamaha fz 07 review has been the talk of the town since it launched in 2014 and it’s no surprise. It’s a featherweight motorcycle that rides and handles like a dream and is a ton of fun. It’s not just beginner friendly, advanced riders will find this little gem enjoyable as well.

The engine’s 270 degree, crossplane-concept cylinder layout is unique and allows it to make full use of the available torque, while providing a smooth power-band that runs all the way up to redline. With a 5.1 inch rear and front suspension, the bike is nimble, agile, and surprisingly comfortable.

A 3.7-gallon tank gives the FZ-07 a claimed 210 mile range. While there are plenty of electronic engines, suspension, and braking modes on modern bikes, the FZ-07 is refreshingly simple and uses its small 5.7-inch LCD dash to display all essential information in a compact and user friendly format.

With a conventional steel diamond-type frame and a tall, comfortable upright riding position, the FZ-07 is compact and easy to maneuver. The lightweight KYB 41mm conventional fork and single rear shock have 9-position adjustability and offer 130mm (5.1”) of travel. There is no throttle-by-wire, no traction control, and no rider mode button, which makes the FZ-07 one of the most pure sport/naked motorcycles out there. It’s also super-light and affordable.
