2004 Yamaha FZ1 from United States of America
The bike is better than I expected
I bought my FZ1 after looking at a newer Yamaha R3. Dealer price for the R3 was about $5k. I decided to keep shopping because when I test drove the R3, it just didn't give me what I wanted for $5k. I looked around and found the used FZ1, and as soon as I hit the throttle and took it for test drive, I was hooked. It responded so well and purred so nicely. (Oh yeah, I bought it for less than $4k! Sweet!)
After my purchase, I drove it home on the freeway and it was such a great feeling. From the steering to the suspension, all were great. The previous owner took great care of the bike and I'm happy for it. The only modification I made on the bike was installing a black windscreen. It is a bike I will keep for at least 3 years or longer.
Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes
