Thottle Meister Cruise
Copied from the Yamaha
"Derived from the legendary R1, the FZ1 packs
a huge amount of horsepower and torque into a chassis that handles like
a super bike yet is comfortable enough to ride all day long. For the rider
who likes sport bike performance but prefers more comfortable ergonomics.
The FZ1 offers a more traditional upright seating position, yet sacrifices
nothing in terms of engine and handling performance. The FZ1 is fitted
with an engine based on the R1. With a different cylinder head than the
R1, the compact 998cc liquid-cooled powerplant is fed by four side-draft
37mm carbs. The crankshaft, 10% heavier than the R1, has greater inertial
mass, providing better around-town ridability. Handling the exhaust chores
is a 4-into-1 system controlled by Yamaha's Exhaust Ultimate Powervalve
(EXUP) that precisely matches the exhaust backpressure with engine RPM
to create maximum power. A perimeter-style steel tube frame mated to a
box section aluminum swingarm adds up to incredible rigidity and confidence
inspiring handling. Front and rear suspension is fully adjustable for preload,
compression and rebound dampening to help fine tune the ride. Cycle World,
May 2002 stated... "While it's impossible to please all of the people all
of the time, the FZ1 manages to come remarkably close." Just like the R1,
the FZ1 has set the standard for sporting street motorcycles. Providing
uncompromised performance in a comfortable, all-around package."
