Yamaha FZ1 review

We went to test the YamahaFZ1 with reviews in mind.

When Power, Style and Comfort are Combined Does Yamaha FZ1 gives outstanding performance yet with a reasonable value? Is it more refined now to challenge the other sportbike in the competition? Finding the answers to these questions gave us an idea of taking the FZ1 for test ride. Since we are hearing rumors from our customers about how great it is, we never let the opportunity passed by. And so we are on for a street ride…

Starting the engine, the bike is incredibly responsive and easy to maneuver. Though it physically look muscular and heavy it is actually light and controllable. With its 51 percent forward weight bias, rider position is moved 2 inches backward. We don’t felt discomfort on this modification instead we enjoy transitioning comfortably in a sporty riding position. Cornering and passing curves is not a problem because FZ1 offers comfort and superb handling. Riding above 8000rpm down the road, we are like WOW this brawler surprisingly demonstrated to us an excellent power-to-weight ratio. It brings enthusiasm to riders who love to hit the redline with confidence. Stopping power is also great, we are able to do it while on higher speed with ease.

Allow us to give you short advice, if you are looking for a state-of-the-art machine with sporty style and unmatched comfortability without giving you stress and headaches then go for Yamaha FZ1. It has the power that can take you to the real world of motorcycling
