Slightly dumber electronics than the R1’s have no IMUs since we are presumably not trying to win the Super Naked World Championship. We were fine with the functionality of TC in least-intervention 1 (no wheelie control!), 2 (some), 3 (death to wheelies) but were confused by the power modes being rearranged from previous product like the FZ-09. On that bike, A mode was super sizzle, STD was, um, standard, and B was something less than standard. The FZ-10 offers B as most aggressive throttle response, A as less so, and STD as least aggressive, though all do offer full power once the throttle is on its stop. “The change was made on FZ-10 to best match the aggressive, exciting character of the bike,” Yamaha said of the mode reordering. We say it’s a bit confusing at first. I enjoyed B the most but reverted to A on tight roads for its gentler response from closed throttle. But leaving lights in A or STD results in an almost boggy feeling that’s gone in B. There is but one real complaint about engine performance: The FZ-10 gulps fuel. Our 32-mpg average is slightly better than Yamaha’s claimed 30. It makes us wonder where all the gas is going. And we also realize this is not a competitor with a Prius, but you will often get the reserve light at around 100 miles and have a gallon, or less than 30 miles, to find gas. I mean, you’ll enjoy it.
