Yamaha Launches 2014 FZ-09 847cc Three-Cylinder At Dealer Show

The 2014 Yamaha FZ-09 Triple, introduced to dealers in Las Vegas Tuesday night.
Yamaha Motor Corporation, U.S.A., Introduces All-New 2014 FZ-09

Cypress, CA June 11, 2013 – Yamaha Motor Corporation, U.S.A., is proud to introduce the all-new FZ-09 for the 2014 model year.

Powered by a fuel-injected, 847cc, liquid-cooled, 3-cylinder engine mounted in an aluminum frame, the FZ-09 brings an aggressive new model to the already vigorous Yamaha lineup.

This model was first revealed as an engine-only concept at the 2012 Intermot Motorcycle Show with this announcement: “With its clean torque output, this advanced new, light, slim and compact 3-cylinder engine will shape Yamaha’s future motorcycle lineup.” Indeed, the 2014-model FZ-09 is a bold new model with a unique engine and look, and it’s packed with high-performance features.

Performance components such as Yamaha’s YCC-T ride-by-wire throttle system, D-mode with 3 throttle position settings, adjustable suspension, and variable throttle intake lengths are combined with the 3-cylinder Crossplane Concept crankshaft configuration for an even firing interval that provides plenty of smooth, linear torque. The result is a sound and experience like no other motorcycle on the market.

The FZ-09 will be available in two color options--Liquid Graphite and Rapid Red--and will retail for $7,990, with bikes available in dealerships starting in September.
