What Is It?

It's powered by a liquid cooled 599cc inline four cylinder engine, producing 97.8bhp at 11,500 rpm and maximum torque at 9,500rpm.

Features include:

  • Steel Deltabox frame
  • Dual 298mm discs up front with 2 piston calipers
  • 245mm disc at the rear with single piston caliper
  • Adjustable 41mm fork with 130mm travel
  • Adjustable rear shock with 120mm travel
  • 4->2->1 exhaust system
  • 6 speed gearbox

Compared to the previous FZR600 the Thundercat has new more aerodynamic bodywork, new 36mm carbs, a new air induction system, new calipers and a new exhaust system. Technically the lighter and higher revving R6 replaced it in 2003 but some remained on sale through to 2007.

The 3-spoke cast Aluminium 17" wheels take a 120/60 tyre at the front and 160/60 at the rear.

Colours: Silver/yellow, yellow/black, blue/white, red, red/black/white, silver/orange, silver/yellow
