Key Features:

  • Our ultimate street brawler brings 998cc of fuel-injected previous generation R1 power to the fray, in a light-and-strong aluminum frame.
  • Sculpted fuel tank and one-piece handlebar move the rider forward for aggressive naked-bike excitement.
  • Adjustable suspension lets the FZ1 be dialed in for a wide ran

    ge of uses, everything from urban assault to sport touring.


  • 998cc DOHC 20-valve previous generation R1 engine is tuned for tremendous mid-range punch and massive top-end power.
  • R1-style fuel injection with computer-controlled sub-throttle valves provides precise fuel/air mixture for superb power delivery across the entire rev range.
  • Closed-deck cylinder block provides great strength while allowing a narrow engine in spite of big, 77mm bores.
  • Narrow-angle five-valve combustion chambers produce a highly efficient 11.5:1 compression ratio. Big valves and high-lift cams flow plenty of air.
  • Carburized connecting rods with fractured big ends produce a quick-revving engine with excellent high-rpm durability.
  • High silicon-content ceramic-composite cylinder sleeves ensure great heat dissipation for consistent power delivery and reduced friction.
  • Four-into-one chamberless short-style exhaust contains stainless steel EXUP and three-way catalyst with Oxygen sensor for outstanding power delivery throughout the rev range and low emissions.
  • Curved high-capacity radiator with twin ring-style fans keeps everything cool under all conditions.


  • Aggressive chassis geometry for quick handling; the engine is shoved forward for excellent handling.
  • Aggressive ergos: 4.75-gallon tank moves the rider forward into a position of total control—supersport-like 51 percent front-wheel weight bias means confident, quick handling.
  • Light-and-rigid aluminum frame uses a special mold casting technique that allowed engineers to minutely vary metal thicknesses for optimal rigidity throughout.
  • Stressed-engine design holds the engine in place with six mounts, for excellent vertical stiffness and handling.
  • Rigid Controlled-Fill aluminum swingarm reduces drive chain–induced suspension movement for excellent handling, tire grip and looks.
  • 43mm fully adjustable inverted fork contains compression damping circuitry in the left leg and rebound in the right—proven effective on the YZR-M1 MotoGP bike—as well as stiff springs for excellent handling.
  • Two 320mm front discs squeezed by monoblock four-piston calipers and a single 245mm rear disc serve up strong stopping power.
  • Removable subframe for easy maintenance and detachable passenger footpeg mounts for even more stripped-down style.
  • Light, R1-spec five-spoke wheels and fat radial tires, including a 190/50-ZR17 rear, complete the look and serve up the traction.
