Yamaha FZ6 Fazer affordable S2 lies between the BMW F 800 S and Suzuki Bandit 650S. In terms of driving a motorcycle does not give reason to complain. Adjusting the rear shock preload does not go as easily as in the case of the BMW F 800 S and requires the use of classical key. Yamaha offers for this possibility to adjust the spring tension of the front fork, which boast BMW can not.
FZ6 suspension does not leave much to be desired - it is simply properly matched to the motorcycle. Was tuned, as in B650, rather touristy, but in the way of his work you can feel the subtle longing for the sport. Perfect for the city, on the national tracks and also the slightly sharper cornering. There is no mention of any swinging or instability. Motorcycle driving position is upright, so that it is driving more relaxed than in the case of BMW sports. The advantage is the relatively low weight, reaching only 186 kg (without fluid), through which the bike is quite handy and agile.
As for the drive, although the drive is a new Yamaha FZ6 Fazer S2 delivers a lot of fun, it must be admitted that the engine feels lazy. This is probably because Yamaha has once again applied here tamed version of the R6 engine. But does it mean that the engine is defective R6? Nothing of the sort! We must just talk to him and find out what speed range suits them. Indeed, it turns out that initially gentle as a lamb, lethargic and even unwilling to work, the motor after crossing the magic of 6500 rev / min suddenly showing claws and turns into a real beast. From that moment Fazer getting really hard to go, as if be involved, yet dormant, extra two cylinders, and echoes this adrenaline pumping, turbo whistle. The engine in the new FZ6 offers large, the largest of the presented machines, the power that goes up to 98 hp. This number is impressive and promises a lot. However, observing the work of the power unit at low speed at first hard to believe that in the second half of the rev counter waiting for us so many memories.
The braking system of the motorcycle Yamaha FZ6 Fazer S2 works just as well as in the BMW. Fazer also can be equipped with the optional ABS, which can save us from oppression, but which can also cause confusion in the beginning people have not benefited from this system. That confusion can cause 'lift' to the front suspension when the ABS reduces the braking force so that the front wheel has not been locked.
In the system of indicators we find, among other things, a few meters distance, fuel gauge, clock, speedometer and analog LCD indicator of the amount of rotation of the motor. This is the standard found in this moment all the other bikes in its class. Yamaha FZ6 from competitors Fazer S2 stands exact engine temperature indicator.
