(1987 / Production Model)
The flagship of Yamaha’s 4-stroke motorcycle lineup from the mid-1980s, which was based on its GENESIS engine design and development concept, the FZR1000 used the same 45° forward-inclined engine design of the FZ750 but upped the displacement to 989cc. It used a narrow valve layout and compact combustion chamber to produce a high compression ratio and featured the Fresh Air Intake System (FAIS) to efficiently direct oncoming air into the airbox. The aluminum Deltabox frame was also 5 kg lighter than the FZ750’s steel frame and contributed to a lighter chassis overall. Although classified as a pure-sport machine, its performance made it a capable tourer as well.
