Yamaha’s ultimate street brawler, the FZ1, brings 998cc of fuel-injected previous generation R1 power to the fray, in a light-and-strong aluminum frame. So can you ask for more? Definitely no, but the unmatchable design and low price are also benefits that make sure you don’t leave your local dealer without Yami’s most versatile sports motorcycle.
The Yamaha YZF-R6 was already commercialized as an unbeatable combination of power and handling in the middleweight super sport class and the 2009 model year shows how things can be pushed even further after receiving the proper feedback from the previous model year. So Yamaha optimizes the engine’s power output in a quest for better lap times, adds some new color schemes and here is the 2009 Yamaha R6.
Yamaha Motor Europe presents through a pretty fun and entertaining promotional video one of the motorcycles with which they plan to dominate the naked category in 2009, the XJ6 Naked. The bike does indeed look sharp and it is also a great alternative to the Kawasaki ER-6n.
Karl Abarth was born in Viena on the 15th of November 1908 and moved to Italy in 1931 where he became an auto designer and five-time European motorcycling champion.
He also established Abarth & C. in 1949 where he manufactured racing cars and performance exhaust systems, some of them being present on the market to this day, the best way to distinguish an Abarth product being the scorpion logo.
Given the tight connection between Abarth and Fiat, who bought Abarth & C. in 1971, and also the successful collaboration between Fiat and Yamaha , the celebration of 100 years from the birth of the great designer is made through a special edition FZ1 Abarth Assetto Corse.
Yamaha Italy has presented the FZ1 within a special exhibit dedicated to Karl Abarth and the bike stands out due to the Ohlins suspensions package, Marchesini rims and sleek tires, Brembo brakes, Akrapovic titan exhaust system as well as the multitude of Rizoma pieces. Also, the Red and White color scheme and Abarth style graphics enhance the performance look of this naked, leaving us wondering if it is ever going to be produced in a limited edition as the bike in the pictures is only a prototype.
Yamaha has just launched the Team Replica of the new YZ 450F, a notorious MX1 motorcycle in which’s seat David Philippaerts won the World Championship only a month ago.
This limited edition celebration model is destined to European motocross fans looking for a new kind of experience on a dirt bike. In order for their requirements to be accomplished, Yamaha Monster Motocross Team has teamed up with Yamaha Racing, the new model ending up featuring upgraded frame and motor compared to the simple version of this bike.
There are also many carbon fiber pieces which reduce the overall weight and also give a clue on this bike’s performance capabilities. The Kawasaki-like graphics stand as a reminder of actual race version and make the 2009 Yamaha YZF 450F Team Replica even more special.
Yamaha plans on making only 100 such bikes for the European market, something that makes them even more craved for.
Born from MotoGP, the 2009 Yamaha R1 is the most technologically advanced motorcycle of the day and, implicit, well worth of a detailed video in which the technical specifications are being explained.
Apparently, now you can be your own fan as you won’t be riding, but racing this bike. Just make sure to do it on a closed track.
Yamaha Motor Europe had the inspired idea of creating a video which takes prospects through Diversion’s technical features, familiarizing them with the bike and making it easier to make a decision.
Recently launched, the clip is supposed to increase sells so the bike is presented as an all-new one even though it is derived from the FZ6, Fazer in Europe.
The revised inline-four now manages a decent 59,7 Nm @ 8,500 rpm and 78 Hp @ 10,000 rpm considering the bike’s 216 kilos and the versatile character.
Here you have it:
New MotoGP technologies that have been implemented on the all-new 2009 Yamaha R1 change the sound of this race bike with headlights and mirrors. Because in the official video that doesn’t stand out, we show you an additional clip that is especially made for cathing the sound of uneven firing interval. Music to my ears…
