I purchased this bike used in 2010 and I have not regretted it one bit. It is plenty aggressive and also user friendly at the same time. It is the perfect bike for a day to day commute or a weekend in the mountain twisties. I really enjoy the instrument cluster. It is always nice to know how much fuel you have and I can't understand why more manufacturers have not taken a hint from this. I would not say this is a beginner bike, anything that has close to a 100 hp. I do not consider beginner. It's probably a little under powered for two people but if you want something for two, this would not be the bike to look at. But other than that I highly recommend this bike. If you are looking for "bang for the buck" this is it.

I just recently went from LA to Las Vegas on my new Yamaha and it ran smooth and quick. It was extremely reliable and I ran it between 75-90 mph. most of the time. The bike was comfortable because you sit staight up, but you can also move around on the seat and lean forward to get a good angle into the wind. The upper fairing cut through the wind fine. On the way back it was very windy but it didn't affect the bike. It's very aerodynamic. This is the best bike I've ever owned. Before this I owned a 1988 Kawasaki Ninja 750. This bike has more horsepower and is a 110 percent better bike and it's only a 600. The fuel injection and the whole bike is awesome!! I will always stick with Yamaha from now on. This is my 8th motorcycle. The 2009 Yamaha FZ6 rocks!!!!

I purchased the FZ6 in July 2009 after months of analysis, comparing it against Suzuki, Honda, Kawasaki offerings in the 600cc to 650cc range. I needed this bike to be a great commuter first, since I ride 70-100 miles per day, and a great performer second, since we all like to have fun on the weekend rides! After owning this bike for 2.5 months and having clocked about 3,500 miles I can say that I am extremely pleased with my FZ6 purchase. The bike is well-built around a solid chassis/frame and great performing engine. The attention to detail is also evident everywhere you look. If you treat this bike nice, you may see 50 mpg, which is what I am averaging on commutes. Sure it will drop to around 42 mpg if you start using the power band but then that's to be expected. This bike handles very well around town and at slow speeds, making it an excellent choice for commuting. When you let the horses out of the corral, boy does the motor sing and the bike instantly transforms into a totally different animal. At speed the bike is sure-footed and leaves even a novice rider like myself full of confidence in the bikes cornering ability and stopping power. Selecting a bike is mostly about personal preference these days since the manufacturers are putting out high-quality products that perform. I'll just summarize and say that for me, the FZ6 was the perfect choice and I can see me owning this bike for many years to come.

This bike seems like it can do it all. Twisties, touring, it's comfortable, very quick, ergonomically sound, looks awesome, great on gas, what more could you want? This bike is Jekyll and Hyde for sure. I own a Vulcan 1600 classic and it's great to have something that is the total opposite to that. This bike (to me at least) is very quick and can get anyone into trouble with hardly any effort at all. The stock seat seems ok but will probably be replaced sooner than later. I've coveted this bike for about 4 years now and I am very glad to finally own one! the deep blue is nicer than the black as well.
