Compact, Torque-Rich Engine
The FZ-07 features an all-new 689cc liquid-cooled, in-line twin cylinder, DOHC, 8-valve engine with fuel injection. This engine has a unique power character. It provides outstanding low- to mid-range torque with very linear throttle response, yet offers strong mid-high rpm pulling power as well. The engine develops up to 50 foot pounds of torque and is designed to maximize riding excitement in the real world.
This 2-cylinder engine features Yamaha’s “Crossplane Concept,” 270 degree crank that provides linear torque development in response to the rider’s throttle input. The FZ-07’s in-line 2-cylinder engine provides linear torque development, smooth torque characteristics and a strong feeling of acceleration in the low- to mid-rpm range along with pulling power that extends to the mid-upper rpm range. The CP2 engine is also light, slim and compact and offers an excellent level of rider/machine communication.
Compact Frame Design
A new lightweight, diamond-type, backbone high tensile steel frame provides an optimized rigidity balance for light, agile handling and stability. The engine is a stressed member of the chassis, allowing a lighter, more compact main frame design.
Sporty Chassis Dimensions
The wheelbase, seat height, fuel tank width, rake and other dimensions are all set to work with the qualities of the compact 2- cylinder engine to achieve a sporty, light and neutral handling character.
A newly designed lightweight, compact, full LCD instrument panel is adopted. The panel includes a digital bar-type tachometer display with gear position indicator, digital speedometer, odometer, dual trip meters, fuel gauge, fuel reserve trip meter, clock, instant and average fuel consumption and a range of warning and indicator lights.
