Yamaha Introduces New 2015 FZ-07

A 2015-model Yamaha FZ-07.

Yamaha Motor Corporation, U.S.A. Introduces All-New 2015 FZ-07

Cypress, CA June 5, 2014 – When Yamaha Motor Corporation, U.S.A. introduced the all-new FZ-09 last year it was positioned as the beginning of a new breed of motorcycles from Yamaha. So how do you follow up a first act as profound and game changing as the FZ-09?

Introducing the all-new FZ-07.

Powered by a fuel-injected, 689cc liquid-cooled, parallel twin engine, mounted in a lightweight diamond-type high tensile steel frame, the FZ-07 adds an exciting new model to the already stacked Yamaha line-up.

The FZ-07 was built from the ground up to bring the joy of motorcycling to the masses. The all new 689cc liquid-cooled, parallel twin engine utilizes Yamaha’s “Crossplane Concept” to achieve a linear torque curve that delivers an ear-to-ear grin the first time you twist the throttle. All the power and torque also means less shifting and more time enjoying the ride.

The FZ-07 was designed to achieve a sporty, light and neutral handling character. The slim tank, 31.7” seat height and upright riding position ensure a comfortable ride and with a weight of only 397 lbs with a full tank of gas, combined with an EPA estimated 58 mpg, the FZ-07 will easily go 200 miles before needing to stop for a fill-up.

The FZ-07 features top notch components like front and rear wave-style rotors, lightweight cast aluminum 10-spoke wheels and a newly designed compact LCD instrument panel that displays all the important data at a glance.

The FZ-07 will be available in three color options—Liquid Graphite, Rapid Red and Pearl White––and will retail for just $6,990, with bikes available in dealerships by the end of June.
