Within the FZ600 beats the heart of an R6, and its Made for fun on winding roads: the new FZ600 has latest technology inherited from the R-series.

A product planner at Yamaha Motor Europe remembers the first big model change in 6 years one year ago: "We decided to let the new Fazer really jump up in terms of technical solutions and design. The only way to free the engineers from restrictions was to give them a free hand to start from scratch. And they did. The new Fazer is new and gives you a new riding feeling as well, without sacrificing its basic qualities of the past."

The for the 2004 model range created, new generation of Fazer 600 made that successful concept simply better and more exciting. When the Fazer FZ600 was launched back in 1998, it proved extremely popular as a well-balanced mix of sport elements and all-round function. At that time most street motorcycles in the middleclass were simply all-round machines and obviously were lacking excitement on the sporty side.


2004 Yamaha FZ6 Features

- Stainless steel underseat exhaust system with heat shield looks cool and doesn't interfere with passengers or luggage.
- Acoustic analysis of the downdraft intake tract and exhaust produce a bike that sounds as cool as it looks.
- Large radiator with ring-type fan for excellent cooling capacity.
- Yamaha Air Induction System, along with a metal honeycomb type catalytic converter, let the FZ6 pass strict EU2 and CARB emissions standards.


- Strong and very light Controlled Fill die cast aluminum frame is made from only two pieces, which bolt together at the steering head and in the swingarm pivot area.
- Five-point stressed-member engine mounting design consists of two crankcase mounts per side and one mount on the left side of the cylinder head for excellent strength and light weight.
- Placing the engine's crankshaft axis close to the FZ6's roll axis aids quick handling and light, positive steering.
- 25 degrees of rake, 3.8-inch trail and 56.7-inch wheelbase for quick handling and excellent tracking.
