FZ1

Everyday Comfort Coupled with Razor Sharp Handling and Open Class Power Cycle World Magazine's "World's Best Streetbike" (Oct. 2004) For the rider who likes sport bike performance but prefers more comfortable ergonomics. The FZ1 offers a more traditional upright seating position, yet sacrifices nothing in terms of engine and handling performance. Sometimes it feels sinful to hide an engine like the R1 derived, 20-valve, Genesis powerplant behind bodywork ... hence the FZ1. Our “naked” bike, though, is fully decked out: Fully adjustable suspension at both ends Four-piston monoblock calipers Light, three-spoke aluminum wheels Wide, high-performance tires The same semi-upright ergonomics that make dawn `til dusk rides not just possible but highly enjoyable also provide great leverage when the road turns twisty. In the end, you can come at it from either direction: practical transportation, or 140-horse sport bike. Both paths will bring you around, eventually, to the one bike that’s both. FZ1.
