Yamaha FZR600 (1991-1992)

The Yamaha FZR 600 appeared in 1989 and was focused on export, for Japan, markets - mainly Europe and North America. The model is the progenitor of Yamaha YZF600R Thundercat and later the flagship Yamaha YZF-R6.

The first versions of the Yamaha FZR 600 were quite archaic by modern standards, but by 1993 the model had begun to differ significantly from the 1989 launch version. In addition to the exterior, the model gets a new engine (1993), wheels (1993), suspensions (1995) and brakes (1991), and Mikuni 32mm carburetors are replaced with larger Keihin 34mm.

The main technologies used in the FZR600:

  • Genesis Concept - based on the use of the Deltabox frame and forward tilt of the cylinders, allowed to move the fuel tank slightly lower, further lowering the motorcycle's center of gravity.
  • EXUP technology - actively used by Yamaha in sports motorcycles and based on the use of a mechanical damper in the exhaust system that opens depending on engine speed, not only increased torque in the mid-range zone, but also compensated for power losses in models for some countries with increased environmental requirements.

In 1995, based on the Yamaha FZR600, the Yamaha YZF600R Thundercat model appeared, which at that time was the latest generation of the FZR600. It was only in 1996 that the Thundercat received a restyling and finally lost the features of the FZR600, which in parallel continued to be produced until 1999 inclusive.
