one of the finest do it all bikes you can get. Put a decent seat on it (I had a Corbin on mine, big improvement) and it is comfy enough to tour on. I never got less than 50mpg, so range was well over 200 miles. You can add some Givi V35 panniers to it and a top box for touring. If you go with soft luggage you have to get a bit creative with how you mount it due to the underseat exhaust. I did a multi day camping trip to the mountains on mine. It was a blast.

I highly recommend the FZ6.
