Yamaha Motor Corporation, U.S.A., is pleased to introduce the all-new FZ-10 “Hyper Naked” flagship sport bike that compliments the wildly successful FZ-07 and FZ-09 models to its Sport motorcycle lineup.

The all-new, aggressively styled FZ-10 offers serious power and agility thanks to its R1-derived engine, chassis, and fully adjustable KYB suspension, and liter-class riders will appreciate the FZ-10’s torquey power delivery and corner-carving precision.

The FZ-10 is powered by the latest-generation R1-based crossplane-crankshaft engine, which has been expertly tuned to provide plenty of low- to mid-range torque and power. The intake ports and valves, combustion chamber, camshafts, and compression ratio have all been designed specifically for the all-new FZ-10, to achieve outstanding rideability in a wide variety of situations.

The distinctive, exterior styling of the FZ-10 is defined by a dynamic, mass-forward silhouette with lean, yet muscular and athletic lines. A small front cowl, full LED lighting, and exposed engine combine to create the visual expression of spirited performance, while the upright riding position provides for a comfortable, yet sporty, slightly forward lean.

From sport riding, to commuting, to long-distance adventures, the new FZ-10 is ready to impress, with its Yamaha Chip-Controlled Throttle (YCC-T), D-Modes (three different riding modes), Traction Control (three different settings), Cruise Control (using the left handlebar switchgear, riders can easily select or adjust a set speed for improved rider comfort when traveling long distances), Anti-lock Braking System (ABS), and full LCD instrumentation.

The 2017 FZ-10 will be available in Armor Gray and Matte Raven Black, and will retail for $12,999, with bikes available in Yamaha dealerships beginning in late June.

For 2017, the YZ250F incorporates many changes including revised intake geometry for additional downdraft effect, which is matched to a shorter intake funnel in the airbox for improved top-end power. Inside the head, more aggressive camshaft profiles and valve springs boost output further, while larger valve seats ensure excellent sealing and reliability.

Also, the 2017 YZ250F’s entire diecast crankcase features a new heat-treating process that was developed to increase strength. Inside, a new nickel-chromoly steel connecting rod offers additional durability to handle the increased power output.

New gear dogs, revised gear-tooth designs, and a host of smaller changes to the transmission on the 2017 YZ250F provide smoother shifting, as well as a stronger overall powertrain for improved durability.

In addition, a redesigned air cleaner cover on the 2017 YZ250F helps prevent contact with the quick-release quarter-turn Dzus air box fasteners and provides tool-less access to the air filter, which is positioned at the front of the bike to avoid roost from the rear wheel.

The SCR950 combines classic Yamaha styling, tracing its roots back to the iconic DT250, with modern components in a motorcycle that blurs the line between “cruiser” and “sportbike.”

A tough explorer with scrambler styling, the SCR950 is powered by a 942cc (58-cubic-inch), air- cooled, 60° V-twin, fuel-injected engine with four valves per cylinder.
