Fazer 1000/FZ1 corner / Re: Alternatives to the fzs1000?
« Last post by Kenyun on 24 May 2018, 10:27:15 PM »
The youngest Fazer thou will now be 13 years old so if you want something younger it will have fuel injection, something younger still will also come with all the electronic 'rider aid gadgets' which to me are unnecessary and WILL go expensively wrong sooner or later.  Unless you want another old bike from a different manufacturer or pay 10 grand for a new one, there is no viable alternative to the FZS1000. I am a bit biased as I have 2 of them, one for Summer, and one for Winter which has covered 156,000 miles and the only thing that has gone wrong with it was the electronic alarm [I had it fitted from new] It did last for 16 years though before it had to be removed. Reasonably cheap to buy, very easy to work on[once the AIS has been binned]  Lots of low and midrange grunt, stable handling, fine brakes, fuel efficient[so long as its not thrashed obviously], comfortable, and last but certainly not least is the glitch free fuelling from the carbs. I also have fuel injected bikes and at low revs the throttle is like a switch and can be imprecise and jerky [especially on big twins] probably the reason for 'riding modes', I suspect they can't get the fuelling right and please Euro 4 regs. On this forum we all appreciate Fazers and for good reason, I for one consider the fzs1000 as one of the best bikes I have ever owned. The only new bike that has come close to loosening my wallet is the current Kawasaki Z1000R, but I would still keep at least one of my Fazers. :)

I don't think that you will find anything that is a complete a package as a sorted Gen1 Thou, I've had mine for 9 years now the longest I've kept any bike due to the fact that it is such a great all rounder. Not that I've ridden one but some might argue a VFR800 comes close at a similar price point.
