    2006 FZ1 pics leaked....

    Or it could be a GOOD photo shop job... But my friend of a friend with inside motorcycle publishing knowledge seems to think that this is the real deal.

    R1 motor (04+)
    Upside down forks
    R6 can (fugly)

    Guess we will have to wait until next month to be sure..... BUT.... the source of this photo was up for less than 24 hours before it magiclly disapeared.

    At least it's not the one they put on the FZ6, can you say butt ugly??? I hav no problem with the FZ1 fairing staying basically the same, but I would hope the mirrors are repositioned a bit from my 05.

    As for the seat... I see no advantage to a plank on a bike that I regularly do 300+ mile days. If I bought an 06 (and I'm not because I just got my 05) the first things to go would be the stock seat and that ugly can.

    I hope the upside down forks have decent springs in them. Why oh why most stock bikes come so soft is beyond me. I can see it on the smaller bikes, bit NOT on the FZ1 which tends to attract larger riders like myself.

    The word is Yamaha put the hammer down on the R1 board to get the pics taken down. Particularly the R6 pics. However Yamaha also likes to "leak" photos to gauge response too.

    Looks like it's going to buzz the hands with the engine hanging from the frame and what we're they thinking with the exhaust....why not run it under the seat like the FZ6?


    I have no trouble with the mirrors......but I'm 6'1" 165lbs . I've done the mirror mod so I can move them in down farther if I want.

    I enjoy the looks of the '06 fz-1 more than the '05 and earlier version. Looks like a nice roadster, decent sized fairing and all. Looks like some freash meat is coming to market, hopefully all the players (esp Honda) comes out with some hot stuff for '06.
    You can't always get what you want!!

    I'm willing to bet we are looking at the real deal on this one now.

    The article explains the reason behind that ugly can too. I think the 06 should come with a 50% off coupon for a power commander and new pipes or slip on.

    I'm going to hold back my panic attack about JUST buying an 05 until I see what they price the 06 at. Spider sense says it will be about $1000 more on the sticker and dealers won't be so willing to come down on a "new" model. I got my 05 for $200 over invoice.

    But on the up side if I had waited I would have been bikeless for almost 10 months before the new ones come in the spring.

    Motocycle.com (http://www.motorcycle.com/mo/mcyam/0..._2/index.motml) ran a feature on the '06 Yamahas with pics of the new FZ1, as well as the R1, R6, R6S and FJR. I couldn't figure out a way to repost the pics here and probably not legal to do, in any case. They claim the 28th as Yamis official annoucement date.

    I like the new look much better than the old one, although that can looks pretty wierd in the pics - maybe it looks better in the flesh.
