The Yamaha FZR is a performance-oriented two-seater that was designed for Yamaha's more aggressive customers. Yamaha's research revealed that 81 percent of its more aggressive customers stand on their sit-down models, and they do so for more than a quarter of their time on the craft. To address this issue, Yamaha created a unique solution for the FZR: a telescoping handlebar column.
The telescoping handlebar column is an innovative solution that lets riders choose their ideal handlebar height. The handlebars rise up to 100 mm above their base setting, providing a comfortable riding stance atop the craft when standing to absorb rough water. The handlebars also provide a certain degree of leverage when simply play riding. If you drop to the middle position, the handlebars rise to the typical height you might expect from a watercraft. Finally, choose the lowest setting, and the craft suddenly feels like a Superbike, able to be carved aggressively on calm waters.
In addition to the telescoping handlebar column, the FZR has a more aggressive hull than the mainstream FX series. The running surface is shorter, and full-length lifting strakes improve top speed. A dihedral keel shape enhances the craft's cornering abilities, while a large pump inlet gives the craft a better bite on the water to enhance acceleration. The chine shape softly angles inward, giving the craft a fun, lean-in riding style.
Bonus Tip: Cut racelike corners by using a little inside lean, shifting your inside leg forward and putting your outside foot aft.
• Nano hull material: The FZR's hull material is made with nanotechnology, reducing weight and increasing acceleration and top speed.
• Remote transmitter: Engages the security system and activates low-speed mode for beginners.
• Telescopic handlebar: Raise or lower the handlebar for comfort.
• Cheap gas: All Yamaha engines are optimized to run on 87-octane fuel.
• Performance: Expect 65-plus mph top speed rocket hole shots.
The FZR is a performance-driven craft that will appeal to those looking for a more aggressive riding experience. With its unique handlebar design and aggressive hull, this craft is perfect for those looking to push their limits on the water. The FZR is priced at an MSRP of $12,599, making it an affordable option for those looking for a high-performance watercraft.
