About the 2003 Yamaha FZ1

Derived from the legendary R1, the 2003 Yamaha FZ1 packs a huge amount of horsepower (140+) and torque into a chassis that handles like a superbike yet is comfortable enough to ride all day long.

For the rider who likes sportbike 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. Comfortable ergonomics. Perimeter-style frame with fully adjustable suspension. Liquid-cooled, R1-based,1000cc engine.

They have tubular steel frames and modified YZF-R1 engines which are carbureted. The models were virtually unchanged over this period, except for colour options, the introduction of the FZS1000S which had a black engine, and in some European countries the 2005 models were fitted with rudimentary catalytic converters.
