Stunning 3-cylinder Engine 847cc liquid-cooled, in-line 3-cylinder, DOHC, 12-valve engine, derived from the award winning FZ-09™. This engine combines high-tech components, including YCC-T® and Yamaha D-Mode, with a crossplane concept crankshaft to deliver an exciting, torquey and quick-revving engine character.
Advanced Engine Control Yamaha Chip Controlled Throttle (YCC-T) is Yamaha’s exclusive ride-by-wire throttle system, derived from MotoGP® technology. YCC-T works in unison with an updated Traction Control System (TCS) to give the rider responsive throttle feel with the security of traction control for roads with less than ideal traction.
Practicality Plus Performance Touring amenities include a height-adjustable windshield, side fairing, adjustable riding position, 12V electrical outlet and a generous 4.8 gallon fuel tank. The FJ-09™ is ideal for the daily commute, short fun rides, or weekend getaways.
Powerful, Controllable Brakes Modern radial-mount four-piston front calipers squeeze 298mm rotors for exceptional stopping ability, while the anti-lock brake system (ABS) works to help prevent wheel lock during hard deceleration.
Top Shelf Features A modern and stylish LED headlight offers superior visibility and complements the FJ-09’s design. Multi-function dot matrix LCD instrument panel is designed to visually relay data to the rider quickly and clearly, including fuel consumption info and gear position.
Ready to Travel Slim-design hard bags, a Genuine Yamaha Accessory, provide storage convenience, as does an accessory top case.
New for 2017
New Assist and Slipper Clutch Yamaha’s assist and slipper clutch gives the rider smoother, more confident downshifts when entering corners aggressively, as well as a lighter pull effort at the lever in day-to-day riding, all while easily handling the torque of the FJ-09’s high-output motor.
New Adjustable Traction Control System An updated Traction Control System (TCS) assists the rider in managing traction on various road conditions by quickly modulating throttle opening, ignition timing and fuel volume. The FJ-09’s TCS now includes two modes to suit various road conditions, and can also be disabled by the rider if they so choose.
Stunning 3-cylinder Engine 847cc liquid-cooled, in-line 3-cylinder, DOHC, 12-valve engine with fuel injection. This engine combines high-tech components including YCC-T and Yamaha D-Mode with a crossplane crankshaft concept to deliver an exciting, torquey and quick-revving engine character.
Crossplane Crankshaft This FJ-09 engine features Yamaha’s “Crossplane Crankshaft Concept” that provides linear torque development in response to the rider’s throttle input.
Ride-by-Wire Throttle The ride-by-wire Yamaha Chip Controlled Throttle (YCC-T) system senses the slightest throttle input by the rider, relays the data to the ECU which sends commands to a servo-motor actuator controlling the intake airflow volume.
Selectable Engine Character The FJ-09 is equipped with Yamaha D-MODE (or “Drive Mode”) variable throttle control system. The rider can choose at will from three throttle valve control maps (Standard Mode, “A” Mode, and “B” Mode) for different performance characteristics.

Plush, Controlled Suspension. For excellent damping characteristics, the front suspension is an inverted fork with 41mm inner tubes with 5.4 inches of travel. The front suspension features adjustment for spring preload and rebound damping.
Compact, Horizontal Monoshock The rear suspension features a linked-type Monocross® shock. The shock is positioned below the seat and features an almost horizontal alignment. This unique positioning contributes to mass centralization and a slimmer body design. The rear suspension is also adjustable for spring preload and rebound damping.
Powerful, Controllable Brakes Front brakes consist of two floating 298mm discs with 4-piston calipers. The calipers are radial mounted for improved feel just like Yamaha’s race-winning supersport machines. The standard anti-lock brake system (ABS) works to help prevent wheel lock during hard deceleration for additional braking security.
Extended Range Large 4.8 gallon fuel tank with 44 miles per gallon means less frequent stops for fuel when on the open road.
Strong, Lightweight Frame Lightweight Controlled-Fill die cast aluminum frame and swingarm is used to reduce weight.
Adjustable Ergonomics The aluminum tapered handlebar is adjustable up to 10mm to accommodate different rider preferences, while the rider’s seat can be easily adjusted 0.6 inches up or down for additional legroom. An accessory low saddle is available, dropping the seat height by 1.25 inches, and the rear suspension height adjuster accessory brings the seat down an additional 9/16”.
Complete Instrumentation Multi-function digital instrument panel features speedometer, tachometer, fuel level and consumption, clock, gear indicator, eco indicator, D-MODE and TCS indicators.
Adjustable Windscreen The windscreen is height-adjustable to three positions at 15mm increments without the use of tools.
Standard Centerstand A centerstand is standard on the FJ-09 for added rider convenience when parking or doing maintenance.
Power Port A 12V electric outlet comes standard as an additional convenience, mounted adjacent to the instrument panel, and a second port can be added with Genuine Yamaha Accessories.
Ready to Accessorize The 2017 FJ-09 is ready for a range of Genuine Yamaha accessories, including windscreens, luggage and more. Performance-minded riders can also install a new Quick Shift System to unlock clutchless full-throttle upshifts for even sportier performance.
