Yamaha FZ6 explained

The Yamaha FZ6 is a 600 cc motorcycle that was introduced in 2004 as a sport cruiser middleweight sport bike built around the 2003 YZF R6 engine. The engine is retuned for more usable midrange power. It comes with a somewhat soft suspension that makes it easy on beginners and very well suited for sport-touring, commuting, or just having fun on curvy mountain roads.

This bike is a popular choice for its half-fairing, upright seating position, and underseat exhaust. These features position it between a full supersport and a naked streetfighter (although in Europe and Australia, there is an available naked FZ-6N option).

This motorcycle is considered a Swiss Army Knife type of motorcycle since it can easily handle sport riding, touring, and commuting. Many owners of these motorcycles modify them more to their specific style of riding. Some owners just leave them stock and enjoy the all-rounder capabilities.

There is a large following of motorcycle owners and many are fanatical about making their FZ6 unique or one of a kind. Because of this, there are many aftermarket parts available.
