Irvine, CA — Yamaha’s big sporty bike news for 2014 is, without a doubt, the announcement of the FZ-09 Triple. As a matter of fact, the response to this new, $7990 machine has been so strong that another color, Blazing Orange, joins the red and black models already in production to help meet the high demand reported by Yamaha’s dealers.
Returning sportbike models are unchanged apart from new colors and graphics. Yamaha’s YZF-R6 will be available in three colors: grey ($10,990) and red or Yamaha Blue for $11,190. The YZF-R1 returns with three color schemes: grey for $14,290 and either red or Yamaha Blue for an additional $200.
With the FZ-09 now filling the slot once held by the departing FZ8, there was still room for an open-class sporting standard, so, the FZ1 returns in Pearl White for $10,790. Finally, the inline-Four powered FZ6R is back in either red/white/black or black for $6850.
