What Is It?

The Yamaha FZ6 is a mid-range naked bike and is powered by a liquid cooled 599 cc inline four engine, producing 96.6 bhp at 12,000 rpm and maximum torque at 10,000 rpm. The engine is a stressed member of the frame.

Features include:

  • Aluminium frame and swingarm
  • Dual 298 mm discs up front with two piston calipers
  • 245 mm disc at the rear with Nissin single piston caliper
  • 43 mm fork with 130 mm travel
  • Rear shock with 130 mm travel and pre-load adjustment
  • 4->2->1->2 Stainless Steel exhaust system
  • Centre stand, rubber topped pegs
  • 6 speed gearbox

Compared to the FZS600 the seat is 5 mm higher, power is up slightly, weight down slightly, the wheels are 18% lighter and the frame is now Aluminium rather than Steel.

The engine is now based on that found in the 2003 YZF-R6 but de-tuned for more mid-range power and the FZ6 Fazer is a 7 kg heavier semi-faired version. The 5-spoke 17" wheels take a 120/70 tyre at the front and 180/55 at the rear.

  • 2004: Black, blue, silver, grey, red
  • 2005: Black, silver, blue, red
  • 2006: Silver, black, blue, red, orange
  • 2007: Blue, red, black, white, silver, grey
  • 2008: Blue, silver, black, grey, white, orange, yellow

The FZ6 sold up to 30,000 per year in Europe.
