It is a really great bike and perfect for any kind of riding, this was an upgrade from my Yamaha FZ6 Fazer S2 I had which was an excellent bike and I really liked it's versatility to do lots of things. (Touring, Fast Road etc.) all with ease, plus it's build quality was that good I decided to stick with Yamaha as I'm really impressed with there motorcycles.The FZ1-S Fazer is very powerful but yet really easy to ride fast or slow with it's very natural riding position it is very confidence inspiring. I am only 5'7 and I find It fine at lights putting my feet down although not both feet flat on the ground. It doesn't really seem that much heavier than the FZ6 In my opinion. The big fat tyres are Excellent on twisty fast roads and you can really put the power down with ease. The engine is personally what makes this bike, it's quiet and tame in the city then you see a few fast straights and bends and it turns into a Demon and really gets the adrenaline pumping. Build quality as said before is second to none and the standard brakes are more than capable of stopping you quickly and safely with plenty of feel. As it's a Litre bike it will drink the petrol if you are hard on the throttle but cruising it seems very good and expect decent mpg. It is a lovely colour and the Lava Red does get a few looks in and around town. Overall Great bike and Yamaha have made another Belter! The R1 derived engine really is spectacular.
