Near as perfect

Advantages: Powerful, Fun, frugal, excellent position, flawlessly built, stylish
Disadvantages: Poor storage space, some are beginning to age a little

Yamaha’s FZ6 is a bike that has an incredibly big heritage to live up to. Its predecessor, the carburettor driven Fazer600, was one of the all-time greats of the middle weight sports tourer class. It had all the reliability of the Honda Hornet, all the de ...

My best purchase ever.

Advantages: Excellent Build quality, extremely smooth riding, capable performance, supple suspension
Disadvantages: quarter of a ton so quite lardy, not as frugal as I'd like, Paint is a wee bit thin, uncommon

The Yamaha XJ900, in its earliest form, was a hit in the early 80's. It's smooth, no fuss and no nonsense 4 cylinder, 4 stroke engine was a revelation to the era that was obsessed with costly 2 stroke speed. Coupled with a relatively uncommon shaft drive ...

King of the Roadliner

Advantages: Superb handling, beautiful styling, power up the yazoo
Disadvantages: Smallish gas tank; hard to wipe the stupid grin off your face, may need risers for under-6' riders

I upgraded to this 1854 cc (113 cubic inch) cruiser- touring bike from the V-Star 1100 Classic that I owned (and reviewed) previously. This is Yamaha's motorcycle engineering masterpiece. The Roadliner and Stratoliner are the same bike, except the latte ...

A fun and fluid commuter with loads of grip but down on power.

Advantages: Loads of grip, great for the city, goes miles on tiny tank, makes you smile.
Disadvantages: Underpowered even for a 125, not ideal for tall riders.

This was the bike that helped my to pass my motorcycle test first time. Having done the compulsory basic training (CBT) I went straight to Infinity Motorcycles in Clapham and bought one of these. I had been doing a good deal of research on the internet re ...

yamaha yzf-r125 at its glory

Advantages: bigger bike looks and comfy riding even at high speeds
Disadvantages: it has a high seating position.

Yamaha have really out done them selves on this on. With its slick curves, high tail end and its mean, aggressive looks which have been passed down from its big brothers the r6 and r1. Dont be fooled by the 125cc 4-stroke engine. It may be small by size b ...
