THANKS FZ750

What the mighty FZ750 gave us

Motorcycle News (UK) - - Feature -

5-VALVES PER CYLIN­DER

The FZ was the first of the many great 20-valve fours that be­came some­thing of a trade­mark for Yamaha in sub­se­quent years.

AN EN­GINE IN­CLUDED IN THE OVER­ALL DE­SIGN

Be­fore the FZ it was com­mon to de­sign an en­gine then try to squeeze it into a chas­sis. With the FZ whole pack­age was de­signed at the same time.

PROPER HAN­DLING

A long wheelbase and low cen­tre of grav­ity led to ex­cel­lent han­dling in an era when this was by no means com­mon.

TRACK EN­TER­TAIN­MENT

Be­tween 1985 and 1988 it beat Suzuki's GSX-R750 in three out of four Bri­tish Su­per­stock Cham­pi­onships.
