The rear brake can be a little spongey at times and the front brake bites hard if you are a little too aggressive. A heavy clutch, considerable play on the throttle and a need to work that rather clunky gearbox endlessly are a few, relatively minor, niggles. When you do decide to open it up, it will keep up with pretty much any Overall, this is very good bike and it does everything rider wants to do. The Yamaha FZ6 Fazer is proof that you can have an aggressively styled bike with a more upright

No stiffness after miles. There’s plenty of Fazers available on the secondhand market and there’s some bargains to be found. When I am commuting I can be lazy with the revs and its easy to ride.

Yamaha FZ6

It’s like riding atop an electric shaver. Added powebronze db screen and belly pan, cheap and both add to the looks of the bike. Just sold my fz6 after 7 months of ownership. As per all Yamahas the switches and controls are all straightforward and robust with the new instrument set all mounted in one LCD pod.

My 16yr old son, wasn’t so keen on it at first – he preferred the looks of my Racing Yellow TT I have to admit it did look goodbut after miles in 3 days round Northumberland he has grown to really like it. I was worried that only been a it would struggle,but this is one great bike my worries were unfounded. I commute almost every day from home North of Portsmouth to East Reading some 56 miles and it’s great.


Overall, this multitasker is good enough at all the things I want it to do, with the promise of more excitement to come. Previously had the fzs 02 and although that had the better brakes and more midrange, I still don’t find the fz6 lacking.

The fuelling does snatch a little under rpm, but nothing too worry about. With the mod night riding is much brighter. Once I’d settled in, however, I felt really at home.

Has been faultless so far. The Fazer is deceptively light and so so easy to flick around, the wide bars helping to quickly change direction. I’m getting 45 mpg.

It accelerates vividly in every gear although it does lack the wild rush of the R6. Looks sharp, has a brilliant motor, excellent fz6w and offers huge versatility Looks sharp, has a brilliant motor, excellent handling and offers huge versatility.

Love it, and it’ll love you back Only negative is the gearbox is pretty clunky but thats it. For the similar named successor, see Yamaha FZ6R.

YAMAHA FZ6 FAZER (2004-2009) Review

They added more mid-range to the R6 engine, but it’s still a 14k race mill. For a first bike this is a great choice, but also for experienced riders that want something reliable and fun. Then on the weekends I take it for a longer rides for fun and boy does it put a stupid grin on my face.


Summary of Owners’ Reviews Overall Rating 4. I had my Fz 6 for 2 years and covered about 15k miles. Riding the Fazer as an everyday bike is an absolute treat, it may be a simple set-up as far as the suspension, braking and so on is concerned, but the result is a surprise. It is super efficient and comfortable. Centre stand would have been nice. A respectable bike at a respectable price, I love my fazer, a great bike at a sensible price. It isn’t as intimidating to ride as the monstrous FZ1 cc”.

After as little as 30 miles you want to stop a while In other projects Wikimedia Commons. The only difference is in appearance of front cowling around the headlights, which is now black regardless of motorcycle colour. Riding position is very comfortable, but very minimal storage under seat, almost none due to emergency tools.
