Stripped down and ready to rumble.

Think of the 2010 Yamaha FZ1 as an upright Yamaha R1 ready to take on the world. There is more fuel-injected power in that smooth 20-valve four-cylinder than most riders will ever use in a sure footed chassis. It is a riders best ally, from track days, to commuting to touring.

New for 2010
•    The ECU mapping has been revised to achieve improved throttle response in the low to mid-rpm range.

Key Features
•    Our ultimate street brawler brings 998cc of fuel-injected power to the fray, in a light-and-strong aluminum frame.

•    Sculpted bodywork and a comfortable handlebar position for great looks and rider comfort.

•    Adjustable suspension lets the FZ1 be dialed in for a wide range of uses—everything from urban assault to sport touring.

Engine
•    Compact design, 998cc DOHC 20-valve engine is tuned for tremendous mid-range punch and massive top-end power.

•    Fuel injection with computer-controlled sub-throttle valves provides precise fuel/air mixture for superb power delivery across the entire rev range.

•    Closed-deck cylinder block provides great strength while allowing a narrow engine in spite of big, 77mm bores.

•    Narrow-angle five-valve combustion chambers produce a highly efficient 11.5:1 compression ratio.

•    Carburized connecting rods with fracture split big ends produce a quick-revving engine with excellent high-rpm durability.

•    High silicon-content ceramic-composite cylinder lining reduces friction and maximizes heat dissipation for consistent power delivery.

•    Four-into two-into one short-style exhaust system with Exhaust Ultimate Power valve (EXUP®), a stainless catalizer and oxygen sensor. Delivers outstanding power throughout the FZ1’s broad rpm range while meeting all emissions regulations.

•    Race-inspired curved radiator with twin ring-style fans keeps everything cool under all conditions.

Chassis/Suspension
•    Aggressive chassis geometry with Supersport inspired 51 percent front wheel weight bias. Provides quick and nimble handling.

•    Short 4.76-gallon fuel tanks allows the rider to move into a forward position. Rider forward ergonomics move the rider into a position of great control.

•    Cast aluminum frame uses the engine as a stressed member. Allows for optimal rigidity, light weight and superb handling.

•    Stressed-engine design holds the engine in place with six mounts, for excellent vertical stiffness and handling.

•    Controlled-Fill (CF) aluminum swingarm. Lightweight and tuned for excellent handling and tire grip; looks great, too.

•    Fully adjustable 43mm inverted fork and a single shock with adjustable preload and rebound damping. Tunable for sport touring or track days.

•    320mm front discs squeezed by monoblock four-piston calipers up front and a single 245mm rear disc serve up strong and consistent stopping power.

•    Removable subframe for easy maintenance and detachable passenger footpegs for even more stripped-down style.

•    Light, five-spoke wheels and fat radial tires, including a 190/50-ZR17 rear, complete the look and serve up the traction.

Additional Features
•    Half-cowl fairing design features aggressive eye-catching naked bike profile.

•    High-tech instrument display features analog tachometer, digital speedometer, dual trip meter with miles on reserve function, odometer, water temperature and lights for neutral, high beam, low fuel and turn signals—also a fade-in lighting feature with adjustable brightness.

•    Two-piece seat serves up great comfort.

•    Passenger grabrails provide passenger comfort while maintaining an aggressive appearance.

•    Durable O-ring-sealed drive chain provides longer chain life.

•    Dual 12V 60/55-watt multireflector headlight features a sleek, profile for superb aerodynamics and visibility.

•    Standard toolkit located in convenient storage compartment under passenger seat.
