These are such a great multipurpose, go-anywhere do-anything middleweights.  We get one or two of these in each year and they are super reliable fuel injected motorcycles.   This particular one has a great sounding Scorpion exhaust, the rest of the bike is all original.  There are a couple of small scratches but very minor, we didn’t get much history on this one but we did have service perform and basic oil/filter service and check over.   Meantime, come check this one out, we priced it sell quick.

Here is what the press said about these:

Life, as we know, is full of compromises. In a perfect world, each of us could afford a bike for going to work, one for track days, one for touring and another for carving canyons on the weekends.  That’s where Yamaha’s FZ6 – affectionately know as a “Fizzer” – comes in. Introduced in 2004 as a budget-priced middleweight 600cc sportbike and powered by the previous year’s YZF R6 engine, it combines many of the attributes of a sportbike with an everyday commuter.  Twin cat’s-eye headlights, the front fairings, and the under-seat exhaust with dual outlets give the FZ6 the appearance of a full-on sportbike. Viewed from the side, the exposed engine and taller handlebar confirms that this is a semi-naked standard machine, but the absence of the Yamaha name keeps onlookers guessing what it is. The only major clue is the tuning-fork logo, which caused many to ask what brand it is. Their general consensus: the FZ6 is an attractive machine that looks more expensive than it is.

The FZ6 essentially mirrors its older, larger sibling, the FZ1. Both are semi-naked sporting machines with an engine retuned for greater mid-range power, and more-comfortable ergonomics than the sportbike that provided the power plant.  At lower speeds the engine is very smooth and lively and yet it can be lugged down to about 30 mpg in sixth. Midrange power is decent, but for quick passes you’ll want to shift down a gear or two. It really starts to make some power above 7,500 rpm, pulling strongly on up to its redline at 14,000 revs.

We found the FZ6 to be well made with quality components and displaying excellent fit and finish. It runs well, has ample power, very good handling and braking performance, long range, and comfortable ergonomics. If you are in the market for a modestly priced motorcycle that can pretty much handle all street-riding chores, this Yamaha should be at, or near, the top of your list.
