About the 2012 Yamaha FZ1

The 2012 Yamaha FZ1 is coming back with nothing more than a face-lift, but that doesn’t appear to be a problem for fans of the bike, especially considering that it already has impressive performance numbers. As the largest naked sportbike in Yamaha’s current lineup, the FZ1 has a lot of expectations to meet up to. Fortunately, it’s got a lot going for it that shouldn’t be a problem as far as meeting and exceeding these expectations.

Compact design, 998cc DOHC 20-valve engine is tuned for tremendous mid-range punch and massive top-end power. Fuel injection with computer-controlled sub-throttle valves provides a precise fuel/air mixture for superb power delivery across the entire rev range.

Closed-deck cylinder block provides great strength while allowing a narrow engine in spite of big, 77mm bores. Narrow-angle five-valve combustion chambers produce a highly efficient 11.5:1 compression ratio.
