2004 Yamaha FZ6 Fazer
Fantastic - and I think unfairly slated by some of the media
Nothing so far. It has been completely reliable.
Moving up from a 400/4 (37bhp) to the Fazer with around 90+bhp was scary at first and the effort to make the front brakes bite was a lot different (mine is fitted with HEL brake lines).
I have had 'bikes off and on over the past 30 years, but this the the biggest, quickest and best handling so far.
I was a bit surprised at the seat height since - at 5' 8" - I can only just get both feet flat on the floor and I find the backwards rake of the handlebars somewhat uncomfortable on the wrists after 50 - 60 miles.
The digital rev counter is difficult to read in sunlight, but OK at night.
The 'bike is certainly fast enough for me and looks beautiful from any angle.
Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes
