Yamaha Introduces 2004 FZ6 and FZ6 Naked to European Market

with the increasing importance of the and semi-… market in Europe, the market for middle-weight machines of design, Yamaha has introduced the FZ6 Fazer and FZ6 Naked. These essentially identical except for the and fairing elements, bring an high technical specification to class of motorcycles.

The R6 engine is in both models, with cam shafts and intake ducts to low and mid-range performance. Both are rated at 98 horsepower at the crank. In to a higher performance engine and these new models are substantially than the prior model replace, the FZS 600 Fazer. Take a at Yamaha’s press release and technical specifications below.

We also included several of both the FZ6 Fazer and FZ6 Naked. is currently no indication Yamaha offer either of their to U.S. consumers.

Powered by a Thundercat-based engine housed in a


Motorcyclists from a wide of backgrounds liked what

machine had to offer, and in 1999 the Fazer became the top-selling

Goal 5: Exceed EU-2 standards by a large margin.

R6-based 600 cc engine

on the R6 supersport

For class-leading mid-range acceleration and top-end

performance, the Fazer with the same forged combustion chamber

shape, valves and bore and … as on the R6. The only significant

differences are designed cast camshafts use the same profile as the

current different intake valve and reshaped intake ducts have been specially

to deliver an easy to use engine for enhanced rideability.


The new Fazer is the first Yamaha motorcycle to be fitted an innovative and compact new group type fuel injection which features two pairs of

36 mm throttle bodies. Fuel is to the cylinder heads via 4-jet/2-direction injectors which have a dynamic range, giving and

efficient engine performance.

significant feature that the new generation Fazer ideally to a wide range of conditions stop/start urban riding to fast motorway

cruising is the CPU. This compact ensures absolutely precise timing and accurate injection which makes for linear power

characteristics across the wide operating range. low to mid-range throttle control is by the use of an eccentric throttle pulley gives a

progressive, rider-friendly


To match the new efficient fuel injection the Fazer is fitted with a intake system. Breathing a 6.3 litre airbox, the single intake

funnel ensures throttle response and makes for torque output in the important low to range.

Yamaha’s engineers also gone to great to ensure that the Fazer as good as it performs! Using analysis technology,

they been able to optimise the air duct design so that it a pleasing intake sound is actually harmonised with the of the new exhaust!


The new Fazer benefits R6 type cylinders which been directly plated a ceramic composite. Unlike the Fazer which featured a liner, this

liner-less gives superior heat characteristics, and offers finer as well as increased rigidity. with the use of forged pistons and

designed piston rings, the plated cylinder gives a stable gas seal, reduces and gives excellent oil consumption

This direct plating has been made possible by latest …-casting technology, in aluminium is cast under controlled conditions. By

significantly the quantity of oxides in the crystal formed when aluminium is this sophisticated technology a stronger and more uniform

area on the Fazer’s cylinder which makes direct possible.


As well as being the first to be equipped with the new group type fuel injection the next generation FZ6 Fazer is the first Yamaha sport

motorcycle to feature a 4-into-2-into-1 exhaust assembly.

This styled system gives the a unique and impressive look, and in to its special aesthetic appeal it a number of performance-related

benefits and advantages. Pipe lengths and chamber size have optimised in order to ensure levels of engine efficiency, and for a pulse

effect there is a pipe between the number two and three header pipes.

One advantage of this design is the honeycomb catalytic converter is in the vertical section of the exhaust behind the engine, and is

therefore away from the road

Situated beneath the seat the wide and shallow muffler box twin exit pipes by a lightweight resin cover underlines the new Fazer’s



The new fuel-injected Fazer exceeds EU-2 emission and this has been achieved the adoption of an air induction system on the side, and

by a metal honeycomb on the exhaust side.

If any unburned is picked up by sensors in the exhaust, the and compact Yamaha Air Induction introduces fresh air directly the exhaust port

to re-burn the

Exhaust gases are then again by a catalytic converter with a metal honeycomb with titanium and rhodium, and by a stainless steel

The efficiency of the Air System and honeycomb catalyser is by the fact that the new Fazer’s are less than half of the set by the

new EU-2 standards, making class-leading 600 one of the most environmentally in the category.

All-new …-cast aluminium frame


Yamaha’s design team set out to an all new chassis that would three main criteria. the new chassis would need to lighter cornering

performance for enjoyable and rewarding riding on roads. Secondly, the new chassis offer agile handling city streets and in traffic

Thirdly, the new design needed to a dramatic and attractive appearance would live up to its class-leading


In order to be able to these three main Yamaha’s development team designed an all-new aluminium frame, making the FZ6 Fazer the

production motorcycle in the category to from this advanced

Yamaha’s exclusive “CF Die-Cast was used in 2003 for the manufacture of the R6 and swingarm, and the Fazer is the first to utilise this

system for its frame.

The new lightweight …-cast aluminium gives an excellent balance of and rigidity, and the use of “CF Die-Cast Technology” has given our designers

the freedom to create a beautifully form that emphasises the unique appearance and exceptional


Another advantage of advanced casting system is it greatly simplifies the structure of the and eliminates the need for welds. The main frame

is actually up of only two parts – a right and a left side – and these are together at the head pipe at the front and at the swingarm pivot

at the rear.


The compact R6-based is mounted rigidly at five as a fully stressed member, and asymmetrical system utilises points on the left and right of

the crankcase, and one point on the left of the cylinder head.

The high of rigidity offered by the new …-cast and asymmetrically mounted engine allowed for the elimination of traditional cross members,

which not reduces weight, but also maintenance during routine


with its high-efficiency 4-into-2-into-1 and new group injection type injection system, the use of a …-cast frame is yet another

‘first’ for the new FZ6 Fazer.

As well as weighing in at 7 kg less than the existing frame, this new highly two-piece structure breaks new by being totally weld-free,

its beautifully sculpted lines that form and function can hand in hand.


The new chassis with totally new dimensions have been chosen to this new class-leader outstanding performance through twisty roads, as

In addition to its overall chassis dimensions and the FZ6 Fazer also benefits a new extra-long box-section aluminium which, at 590 mm,

is over 70 mm longer on the existing model. By moving the pivot point much to the axis of the drive sprocket, the chain runs at a more

tension for outstanding running

Mounted directly to the highly swingarm is a lightweight preload-adjustable absorber featuring optimised settings that deliver damping

characteristics – and for improved versatility, rear wheel is increased by 10 mm to 130 mm.


Compared with its predecessor, the new FZ6 crank axis is positioned 10 mm back and 5 mm higher in the chassis, and shifts the centre of gravity

to the new model’s roll axis. new engine position, combined the new chassis dimensions, gives a new feeling of rider-machine unity makes this new

middleweight a rewarding machine to ride in a range of road conditions.

to make feel at one with the machine in a short period of time.


“Rear wheel drive is the complex relationship between gear ratio and tyre and it is a crucial factor in determining the of every

motorcycle. Yamaha’s engineers focused closely on this in an effort to give the new FZ6 Fazer cornering performance, particularly in the

70-110 km/h speed

By carefully selecting torque that complement different ratios over a wide rpm and equipping the new Fazer with wider rear tyre, we

succeeded in boosting “rear drive force” by a full
