Yamaha recently announced the 2017 FZ-10, a naked bike based on the company's supersport flagship model, the YZF-R1. Scroll through the gallery below to see a series of detail images of the new bike, and to learn more about the new FZ-10.

The engine has been developed from the latest-generation R1 models, with changes designed to improve its performance in the low-end and midrange rpm range. The intake, exhaust and fuel injection have been revised, and crankshaft balance has also been changed. According to Yamaha, "A number of model-specific settings have also been adopted in order to enhance the direct and connected feeling between the throttle and the rear wheel that is associated with the crossplane design."Courtesy of Yamaha

The engine has an assist/slipper clutch similar to the R1's; specially designed ramps between the clutch boss and pressure plate augment the force of the clutch springs (the "assist" part under acceleration) and allow the use of lower-rate springs for a lighter clutch feel. The FZ-10's frame is derived from the R1's, with a different strength/rigidity balance more appropriate to the FZ-10's intended use. Rake and trail are identical to the R1's numbers at 24 degrees and 102mm respectively.Courtesy of Yamaha

The FZ-10's LCD instrument panel includes a digital speedometer, bar-graph tachometer, fuel gauge, odometer, fuel economy readouts and gear position indicator. The shift light can be adjusted for rpm to suit the rider's preference.Courtesy of Yamaha

Although the FZ-10's wheelbase is very short at just 1400mm, the swingarm pivots close to the bike's center for improved stability. The wheels are lightweight five-spoke aluminum units; tires are Bridgestone Hypersport S20, in 120/70 and 190/55 sizes.Courtesy of Yamaha

Front brakes are radial-mount four-piston calipers with 320mm discs, all similar to R1 components. ABS is standard equipment.Courtesy of Yamaha

The front fork is a KYB 43mm unit, with settings developed specifically for the FZ-10 for a smooth and compliant action during initial stroke in low-load situations, but accurate feel and feedback at higher loads. Adjustments can be made for preload as well as rebound and compression damping.Courtesy of Yamaha

The left handlebar switch cluster includes the cruise control switches. The cruise control can be activated in 4th, 5th or 6th gears, and cancelled by using the brake, clutch or throttle.Courtesy of Yamaha

The electronics package includes Yamaha's D-Mode system with three settings that adjust throttle opening, ignition timing and fuel injection. In addition to Standard mode, A mode offers sportier engine character in the low- to mid-speed range, and B mode offers a more aggressive response. The package also includes Yamaha's TCS (Traction Control System) that offers three levels of intervention or can be turned off.Courtesy of Yamaha

The turn signals, brake light and license plate light are all LED units. The subframe is steel (as opposed to aluminum on the R1) and incorporates the necessary fixtures and fitting to accommodate a number of genuine Yamaha accessories that are offered for the bike.Courtesy of Yamaha

The cooling system includes a large curved radiator and this air-cooled oil cooler; simplified pipe and hose routing reduces the number of parts required and saves weight.Courtesy of Yamaha

The exhaust is manufactured from stainless steel with a lightweight titanium muffler with a "midship" chamber to improve mass centralization. An EXUP valve is incorporated to improve efficiency.Courtesy of Yamaha
