The FZ-07 is a motorcycle that brings fun, affordability and riding enjoyment back to the street. This versatile naked roadster offers deep engine torque and a comfortable riding position in a lightweight, easy to handle sports chassis. It's the perfect machine for both new and experienced riders alike who are looking for outstanding value.

Power: Liquid-cooled, 689cc, inline twin has been designed to provide deep, powerful torque in the most frequently used rpm range (3,000 to 6,500 rpm). A single balancer shaft keeps things silky smooth, while the 6-speed transmission with overdrive 6th gear reduces engine rpms at highway speeds.

Control: The 38mm Mikuni throttle body fuel injection system combines with the 270 degree "Crossplane Concept" CP2 crankshaft to provide easy to use linear throttle response.

Style: From the compact "diamond type" frame to the single 60/55 watt headlight to the naked roadster bodywork, the FZ-07's styling highlights its super lightweight of only 180 kgs (397 lbs). The conventional handlebar design and upright riding position translates into all day riding comfort.

Engine Features
  • Slim, compact, 689cc, DOHC, 4-valve, liquid-cooled, 20 degree inclined, inline twin cylinder engine.
  • The engine has been tuned to provide plenty of low & mid-range torque with very linear throttle response. This engine is not about big specification numbers; it produces 75 hp. and 50 ft. lbs. of torque and is designed to maximize riding fun in the real world.
  • 4-valve, downdraft style combustion chamber with 11.5:1 compression ratio: excellent torque output... especially in the low to mid rpm range; 4-valve design maximizes flow into & out of combustion chamber; 31.5 mm intake & 26.5 mm exhaust valves; stainless steel valves feature an Isonite surface treatment & carburized tips for excellent durability & wear resistance
  • Valve adjustment intervals are every 42,000 kms.
  • Lightweight hollow camshafts: cam profiles are designed to accentuate low to mid-range torque & power in the most commonly used rpm range (3,000 to 6,500 rpm): excellent "ride-ability"
  • "CrossPlane Concept" 270 degree crankshaft with an "uneven" firing order: design reduces inertia torque while emphasizing linear torque; design has been optimized to achieve strong torque over a broad rpm range; CP Concept offers "ride ability that allows the rider to control the machine at will."; engine design allows a whole new level of "rider - machine communication"
  • Lightweight gear driven "coupling force balancer" reduces engine vibration for excellent comfort.
  • "Fracture split" connecting rods feature a "nut less" design: lower end "cap" of the rod is made from the same piece of material as the upper portion; the 2 pieces are "split" apart using a special fracturing process & then machined; design aids in establishing true big end roundness & greater precision in con rod dimensions for excellent durability despite the high horsepower loads
  • Lightweight, forged, aluminum short skirt pistons: design aids in fast engine response; reduces mechanical vibration; excellent durability
  • Direct ceramic composite plated cylinder uses "liner less" bores: ceramic coating sprayed directly on the aluminum block, eliminating the liner & reducing weight; excellent heat dissipation for consistent power delivery; coating enhances the thin film of oil between the cylinder & piston, reducing friction & increasing power
  • Offset cylinder design: cylinder is "offset" relative to the crank (toward exhaust side); reduces frictional losses between the pistons & cylinder wall during the power stroke for improved power output & excellent fuel economy
  • One-piece cylinder and upper crankcase assembly: superior engine & chassis rigidity (engine is a stressed member); reduces weight; engine is a stressed member for increased chassis rigidity
  • Automatic cam chain tensioner: reduces mechanical engine noise & maintenance
  • "Closed loop" 38 mm Mikuni throttle body fuel injection system: system uses throttle position sensor (TPS) & idle speed controller (ISC); 12 hole injectors for optimum fuel atomization; system is "tuned" to provide excellent "ride ability" & "linear" throttle control: "closed loop system" uses an oxygen sensor to "sniff" spent exhaust & automatically adjust the fuel / air ratio for reduced emissions; fuel injection benefits include choke-free starting, steady idling during warm up, excellent fuel economy & reduced emissions
  • Compact Electronic Control Unit (ECU): utilizes a powerful 32-bit processor for fast control of the injection & ignition processes; compact design reduces weight.
  • Air box design features dual intakes: reduces intake noise; viscous paper type air filter is utilized
  • Compact, 6-speed transmission: Tri-axis design "stacks" input/output shafts centralizing mass; overall engine size is shorter front to back allowing the engineers the freedom to place the engine in the frame for optimum front to rear weight balance; transmission ratios are designed to suit the character (torque & power) of the engine; specially chosen gear ratios means fewer gear changes; 6th gear is an over drive gear reducing engine rpms at highway speeds for a comfortable ride
  • Compact, clutch design with light clutch lever pull
  • Stylish, compact, low mounted, 2 into 1 exhaust system. triple expansion muffler design with 3-way honeycomb catalyzer reduces exhaust emissions; low mounted design centralizes mass for excellent handling & a light weight feeling
  • Lightweight, vertical flow flat radiator with ring type cooling fan: ring type cooling fan pulls more air than a normal design
  • Liquid-cooled oil cooler maintains stable lubricant temperatures for extended engine life.
  • Convenient spin-on type oil filter & easy access drain plug for fast, easy oil changes.
  • Convenient oil level sight glass.
  • Maintenance-free transistor controlled ignition (TCI): produces a strong spark for fast starts; provides precise ignition timing / mapping for optimum engine performance at all rpms
  • High performance direct ignition coils (ignition coil is built into the spark plug caps): reduces weight & complexity
  • AC Magneto produces 410 watts of power @ 5,000rpm.
  • Air Injection System (AIS... not ram air) injects fresh air into exhaust ports to fully burn any unburnt fuel, further reducing exhaust emissions.
Chassis/Suspension Features
  • Diamond-type, high tensile steel backbone type frame: optimized rigidity balance for light, agile handling & excellent stability; engine is a stressed member of the chassis, allowing a lighter, more compact main frame
  • Upright, comfortable riding position is a key feature of the FZ-07: excellent all day rider comfort
  • Key chassis geometry figures include: 1400mm (55.1") wheelbase; 24.5 degrees of rake & 90mm of trail; front - rear weight distribution is 49.2% front and 50.8% rear; lean angle is 49 degrees, highlighting the sporty nature of the FZ-07; chassis dimensions & design centralizes mass & lowers centre of gravity for light, agile handling
  • Lightweight, high tensile steel "gull wing" type short design swingarm: lightweight design reduces unsprung weight for superior suspension performance; excellent rear wheel traction & control
  • 41mm conventional style fork offers 130mm (5.1") of wheel travel.
  • Lightweight, aluminum upper and lower triple clamps.
  • Adjustable link-type Monocross "link-less" rear suspension with 130 mm (5.1") of wheel travel: horizontally mounted rear shock can be adjusted for 9 steps of spring pre-load; adjustment allows the rider to tailor pre-load settings to match rider weight or load
