The Yamaha Fazer FZ6 has always been a popular choice for the commuter, first bigger bike and so on, but when Yamaha announced that it was going to be killed off due to emmission problems we all wondered what was going to take its place. The first incarnation of the Yamaha FZ6 was a serious budget street bike and was based around the old ThunderCat600 motor dropped into a tubular steel frame with the most basic of cycle parts. The new Yamaha Fazer is a different breed from anything called Fazer in the past though. The striking new Fazer600 is a truly capable middleweight that uses a host of technology from other Yamahas.
The overall look of the Fazer is one of agression, with the sleek, twin headlight half fairing dominating the front, and the sleek sweep back over the side panels to the rear and the twin underseat exhaust system. The look is one of modern technology built into an everyday bike that will take you wherever. With an upright riding position offering a good view of the road, the Fazer is a day to day, do anything, work horse. If you can see your horizons expanding further than the daily trip into work, then fear not, the Yamaha FZ6 Fazer is an excellent touring bike too.
