The 2016 Yamaha Street Lineup introduced in Spring of 2015.
Last week Yamaha invited us for an unveiling in Southern California that included a lot of news for the the 2016 off-road lineup, but there’s little exciting in terms of the 2016 street market--thus far. These are only models introduced in Spring of 2015, with more unveilings to come this Fall.
The biggest take-away from the Yamaha event was the return of popular models, like the FZ-09, FZ-07 and Star Bolt, but with no price increases. Don’t change a good thing, but if you do, throw some paint on it.
This was one of the optioned-out Bolts Yamaha had on display. Going for the H-D look.
While Suzuki and Kawasaki are in a hurry to produce a middleweight competitor, the King is resting easy, introducing very little in the way of changes on the FZ-09 and FZ-07.
The 2016 FZ-07 will be available in two color options--Raven and Matte Silver--and will retail for $6,990.
The 2016 FZ-09 will also be available in Raven, as well as Impact Blue, and will retail for the same $8,190. Both bikes will be available in dealerships beginning in September.
