2006 Yamaha FZ1: “[F]or 2006, we knew almost from the first ride that the revamped Yamaha FZ1 was our [Motorcycle of the Year]. // Since it was introduced for 2001, the Yamaha FZ1 has won every Rider sport-standard shootout in which it was included. This potent combination of R1 sportbike power, quick handling and two-up sport-touring comfort is even better for 2006. Yamaha started from scratch and gave the FZ1 an all-new compact aluminum frame, current generation R1 engine and better suspension at both ends, shaving off 9 pounds, increasing power and improving the bike’s already great handling. The FZ1’s new styling oozes performance from every pore, and that low, short-style muffler looks good, sounds good and allows plenty of clearance for side cases or soft saddlebags. // The best part is that while the 2006 FZ1 is sportier than its predecessor, the bike hasn’t lost the comfort that makes it a good everyday ride and just as much fun to ride to the canyons as in them.” (Rider, June 2006; photo by Kevin Wing)
