Yamaha FZS600 Fazer
This is a low mileage bike and is still very original. It runs really well and starts on the button. It will be supplied with an MOT and has been through our workshop and been fully serviced. This one is ready to ride away and enjoy. 
 
We choose our bikes carefully and then we prepare them thoroughly. All our bikes are fully serviced, not just an oil and a plug change but a complete check including brake linings, tyre condition and battery health. Anything which doesn't come up to scratch is replaced and our bikes are supplied with an MOT and all the documentation we have collected. 
 
Whilst in our care they are kept in a secure, heated and humidity-controlled storage facility until their new owner takes possession, Viewings are by appointment and delivery can be arranged to any part of the UK.

Looking Back 
 
First appearing in the late 90s, the Fazer looked similar to other middleweight bikes of the day. Like other bikes it used a detuned motor from something sportier, in this case the 600 cc liquid cooled motor from a Yamaha Thundercat. Detuning gave the motor more mid-range power and made the bike a friendly one to ride. 
 
That said, detuned is a decidedly relative term, having reduced the power to a still very creditable claimed output of 95bhp. Using brakes from the R1 is a hint as to the true performance of the bike and it was that performance which put it ahead of other 600s of the day.  
 
The bike comes half-faired which is probably a good indicator that this is an all-rounder, not an out and out racer. Yet, aside from the slightly disappointing headlights, this has the handling and performance to provide most people with plenty of fun and little to complain about.  
 
Add to that the fact that this is a generally reliable bike with a decent range and you have a bike you could confidently take on some long trips. Even today, Fazers are a perfectly good choice and won’t be left embarrassed by the performance of much newer bikes. 
 
The year 2000 saw a slightly larger fuel tank and a digital clock. 2002 saw a revised fairing and another increase to the tank capacity. Given that the bike had an impressive range already this was fixing a problem which didn’t exist but made sure the rider’s bladder and need for coffee would ensure a stop occurred long before the petrol ran out.
