The 2013 Yamaha FZ1 remains unchanged and is a bit... boring?

Yamaha have released the first official pics of the 2013 FZ1, which remains unchanged for next year. The bike is an effective semi-faired ‘universal Japanese motorcycle’ and with its liquid-cooled, 998cc, DOHC, 20-valve inline-four (essentially a detuned earlier-generation Yamaha R1 engine), it doesn’t really lack usable, real-world performance.

The 2013 Yamaha FZ1 still has the same 6-speed gearbox, 32-bit ECU and digital ignition, fully adjustable 43mm front fork and adjustable (preload and rebound damping only) rear shock, twin 320mm front brake discs with 4-piston calipers and rides on 17-inch wheels shod with 120/70 (front) and 190/50 (rear) tyres.

Yamaha claim aggressive this and supersport inspired that for the FZ1 but this bike is no streetfighter – it’s a capable all-rounder, but perhaps one that needs a big, fresh dose of excitement. Who knows, maybe Yamaha will bolt on a supercharger on the FZ1 for 2014…
