Review by John Clayborn
I have personally owned a 2005 Yamaha FZ6 for the last 3 years.
First, I just wanted to let you know that the FZ6 has two different
"body styles", and that there is a second one is styled more
closely to a full blown sportsbike.
My bike was completely stock. Your site lists the maximum speed
as "135 mph". I was personally able to get my FZ6 up to 160mph
at the redline in 6th gear and routinely pushed the bike past
135. Also, you list the 0-60 time as 4seconds. Again, I was
able to achieve this speed at considerably faster rates. Within
5 second I had the bike pushing 100, by 4 seconds the bike was
doing about 80mph.
As for a review....this bike is very, very good! I love it!
It's not quite as sexy as the R6, but for the price and engine
size it's awesome. It can hold its own in the areas of speed,
handling and manuverability, it has great fuel efficiency. The
sit posture is more ergonomic than the R6, which is great if
your looking for a bike for long rides and commutes. I took
mine on many road trips, and used it as my primary form of transportation
for three years and it never hurt my back, even riding 600+
miles. As far as the design goes, the "naked" look, half-fairing,
sit posture, and undertail exhaust make this an ideal choice
for beginning riders. Its still a great choice for experienced
riders too, but if you have to lay the bike down for some reason
(and I did 3 times), the bike suffers minimal damage and still
runs like a champ.
