2016 Yamaha FZ-07

Yamaha Motor Corporation, U.S.A., today introduced the 2016 FZ-07 and FZ-09, the first two models in its 2016 line-up of sportbikes, and Star Motorcycles debuted the 2016 Bolt and Bolt R-Spec, its first two 2016 cruisers.

The FZ-07 features a 689cc, crossplane-concept, liquid-cooled, inline, twin-cylinder, DOHC, 8-valve engine with fuel injection, which provides outstanding low- to mid-range torque with very linear throttle response. The motorcycle’s wheelbase, seat height, fuel tank width, rake, and other dimensions all work with the qualities of the compact twin-cylinder engine to achieve a sporty, light, and neutral handling character.

The FZ-09’s 847cc, crossplane-concept, liquid-cooled, inline, three-cylinder, fuel-injected engine combines advanced, high-tech components, including YCC-T and Yamaha D-Mode, to deliver an exciting quick-revving engine character. The motorcycle’s wheelbase, seat height, fuel tank width, rake and other dimensions provide an upright riding position and a narrow-feeling chassis at the seat/tank junction.

Epitomizing the  “Urban Performance Bobber”, the compact chassis on the Bolt and Bolt R-Spec proudly showcases the 58-cubic-inch (942cc), air-cooled, 60° V-twin engine at the heart of each bike. Both the Bolt and the Bolt R-Spec have been highly popular models, attracting a broad range of cruiser buyers.

The 2016 Bolt and Bolt R-Spec use modern technology to create a riding experience superior to other similarly sized machines. Class-leading engine performance with strong low- and mid-range torque rewards riders with every twist of the throttle.
