1987 Yamaha FZX700 Fazer
This bike epitomizes the reason we ride... for fun!
So far... none.
I'm an old geezer and have been riding for many, many years. Have owned over 50 motorcycles. Former 250gp racer.
I bought my '87 Fazer 700 to use in the local Classic Japanese Motorcycle club, to show and ride. The only mod to my stock bike was installing a Dynojet Kit, Stage 1. It is so dialed in now that it will start immediately, from a cold start, without the choke!
This bike is a blast to ride! It's very smooth, has a hyper personality, and is never boring to ride.
I'm 5' 10" and the ergonomics of the riding position are quite good, and especially the reach to the handlebars. The foot pegs are a bit too high.
If you have one of these, take good care of it and never sell!
Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes
