That's why I got a naked bike.
Shame that we didn't get the rumoured TDM replacement with the new motor. Still - there's always next year..
Just took a test ride on one. Wow! Most effortless power wheelies ever in 1-2-3. Fun bike. Not sure my license would survive longer than a week.
I went to the dealer who called me to come test out the FZ, today. Wandered all over the floor, but no FZ's. I was told that the first ones were already gone and the next shipment was already asked for, sight unseen.
I guess it was both good and bad for me, today. It kept me from committing to one, when my money supply is currently slim, but, damn, I did want to ride one, so I could throw caution to the wind and take one home with me. Maybe 2014 will be the right year to have one in the garage. tomp dd50
If I could find one at $7266 I would buy one today. Great price!
I was going to use this post to work the deal on an FZ, but since they didn't have any, it was just wishful thinking. That IS a GREAT PRICE... tomp dd50
Welcome to the club. I have over 1,200 miles on mine now and the gear whine has mostly quieted entirely. Although there is still a fair amount of whine in sixth, which I'm pretty sure is due to the unequal length intake runners.
Yamaha hit a bullseye here. My guess is they will address some peoples want of a better suspension with a "R" model, much like Triumph does with their upscale Speed and Street triples. That would put the Yamaha's price in line with the BASE version of the Street R.
I rode an FZ-09 that a buddy bought immediately when it arrived at the dealer. The suspension was the ONLY complaint I had.
It looks like guys are already working on it:
If a TV show is more important to you than motorcycles, why bother???
You guys out east are sooo lucky. Won't be anybody here in CO paying less than MSRP +1K in fees.
Colorado, Why not just take a trip east and bring a new bike back to CO. You should have to pay taxes on it only once, but possibly registration in both states. A u-haul trailer shouldn't cost much for a one way trip back home, and around $2 grand in purchase savings, too. Just a thought...tp
We're lucky? Your riding is ten times better than mine.
And you have to travel to find a deal sometimes, I rode 14 hours to get mine and visted a friend so it served two purposes.
I guess next time I just won't bother at all, sorry. :fyyff
Bama, It was worth it. Great report. I guess you bought outside the state. Just wondering where great prices are happening... tp
This thing is utterly awesome hopefully it will arrive to OZ soon
Dark and Wild.
I'm looking for a stock replacement from another bike like zx6 shocks for the sv650. s1000rr shock for the fz1...etc.
.... As they did with the Bolt R-Spec.
Hope it does. Don't think it's coming to the USA. Plastics or not, Ohlins/WP's and Brembos, would be great. Kinda like the KTM 690 Duke I had. I would take a kitted FZ over a ST3R, any day... tomp
Looks to me like the reservoir would be the main problem. Too bad all the SS have it built into the body. I don't remember when the time I saw a remote reservoir shock(except on my 919).
Put another 100 miles on the new FZ today. I have already gotten used to the throttle response in std mode, and really dig it. This little bike hauls some ass.
I can't think of a better setup for blasting back roads
