New colours for 2009 Yamaha FJR1300, FZ1, FZ1 Fazer, FZ6 and FZ6 Fazer


No FJR1400 yet, but the 2009 Yamaha FJR1300 gets hot new colours! As do the FZ1, FZ1 Fazer, FZ6 and FZ6 Fazer


While the 2009 R1 has got a proper, full-blown makeover, most other Yamahas, including the 2009 R6, are having to make do with new colours. Likewise for the 2009 FJR1300 sports-tourer. New colours. Not happy with that? Okay, the big FJR also gets a modified clutch for smoother gear changes.

On the FJR1300AS, the semi-automatic gear-shift mechanism has been reworked, and the YCC-S electronics have been tweaked to make the system react quicker while shifting gears. Meanwhile, the Yamaha FZ1, FZ1 Fazer, FZ6 and FZ6 Fazer continue unchanged for 2009, with only… you got it... new colours being made available on the lineup.



Other 2009 Yamahas: XJR1300, MT-01, XT660X, MT-03, Midnight Star 1900 and TDM900. New colours for all these bikes. YES!

Yamaha showed this special edition FZ1 Abarth Assetto Corse at the 2008 EICMA. Abarth is, as most would already know, Fiat's performance tuning arm. The bike features Öhlins suspension, Marchesini wheels, Brembo brakes and an Akrapovic exhaust system. Looks good to us...
