Working at a motorcycle shop has its perks. Today (Nov 14) we rode the pre production prototypes of Yamaha's new GP's. Which are really FZ's, SHO powered Race Craft. Tom, Nick and myself took turns with the 2 PWC's. Although it was November 14, it wasn't all that bad of an afternoon on the lake.

The new FZR SVHO is the upgraded version of the race-proven platform that
Yamaha introduced several years ago. What makes this model tick is the new
SVHO engine, the next generation of the reliable 1.8L supercharged marine
watercraft power package. In addition to the new power, Yamaha has redone
the graphics and color scheme, added a new jet pump unit, ride plate and
sponsons. This is the exact machine that the race team drives.

1994 Yamaha FZR1000
The FZR1000 is a very well-balanced bike with massive amounts of power. The
chassis is perfectly capable of maintaining its composure under the stress
of a motor at full throttle, and this makes the ride and the feel of the
bike more enjoyable.
One of my favorite things about this machine is its extreme light weight
and maneuverability. Due to its layout with 45 degree angled cylinders and
relatively low seat height it feels lighter than a brand new R1, although
it's about 50 pounds heavier. The bike is very easy to handle around town
and it has a very satisfying acceleration.
When you ride the FZR1000 you feel like you are a part of the machine and
the ride is more enjoyable. On the modern sport bikes you are perched on
top of the bike and the ride is not so comfortable.
But what goes fast, needs to stop fast and the FZR1000 has no problem with
powerful braking. The bike's solid and reliable braking system will do the
job for you every single time.
The bike's powerful engine really starts to scream when you hit 7000 RPM
and no moving object on the road will leave you behind at full throttle.
The 20-valve inline four built by Yamaha is one of the most reliable power
plants ever constructed so you will ride the bike with no worry.
The people that own these motorcycles take very good care of them so it
wouldn't be hard for you to find a bike that looks great and rides
smoothly. If the owner has the full service history of the bike and you are
satisfied with the miles, than you should really consider buying it. Also
make sure that the tires are in good shape because they aren't so durable
on sport bikes and they don't come cheap.
Yamaha's FZR1000 was considered the Best Street bike in the 90's. It was
the bike to own in those days: very fast, beautiful and handled like no
