2004 Yamaha FZ6

Upright, comfortable riding position with great weather protection. Light, effortless handling for urban use, comfortable long-distance cruising, and serious sport riding too.It was Thursday. I was hot in LA when the call came in from MO: "Agent Jason, Yamaha has a new bike available for a few hours and we want you to go ride it tomorrow. It's the new FZ6, like the FZ1 standard but with the R6 engine." Hmmm, sounds like a price-point special to me. Visions of the old Seca II standard danced in my melon. Would I be bored to tears by some cheesy, underpowered scoot designed for frugal college kids? I resigned to play along diligently and keep the sarcasm to a minimum.

At the palatial Yamaha HQ, PR man "B-rad" Banister escorted yours truly and photo-guy Alphonse into a secured area full of yet-to-be-introduced '04 goodies. B-rad gave us the rundown on the new FZ before pulling the covers off. Voila! All sarcasm vanished...instead of a cheapo econo-bike, the FZ6 resembles a shrunken version of the much-acclaimed FZ1, albeit with some very tasty new features.
