The Yamaha FZ1 received its last major upgrade back in 2006. Since then, the bike was slightly modified but the manufacturer has never gone too far and chose to make only small upgrades and generally kept the structure unchanged. Thereby, the Yamaha FZ1 remained a traditional sport bike which comes without the bells and whistles of it more upscale counterparts, but it rewards you a pure riding experience.
The bike is propelled by a capable 998cc DOHC 20-valve engine which is especially tuned for adequate mid-range punch and generous top-end power. The engine features fuel injection with computer-controlled sub-throttle valves and a closed-deck cylinder. There is also a race-inspired curved radiator with twin ring-style fans to keep everything cool.
As far as stopping power goes the bike features 320mm front discs squeezed by monoblock four-piston calipers up front and a single 245mm rear disc.
