Hi everybody, i'm from Montréal, Québec. I am 40 and i currently own a Yam Fazer 8 2011. i have 11 years experience on-road/6 years off/road. I am very interested to replace my bike by a FZ-07 2015. Little scared because this bike is described as a beginner bike, thats why i'm here, to find answer and ask FZ07 owners opinions. Thank you and excuse me in advance if my English writing if is not perfect, i'm french and i will do my best to write correctl y.... with the help of Google translate sometime!! loll

Welcome! I've ridden a few different bikes (Ninja 500, Honda Magna 750, VStrom 650), and I think the reason the FZ-07 is a good "beginner" bike is the affordable price, light weight, and comfortable ergonomics. I personally wouldn't recommend it as a beginners bike for a first time rider, because it has enough torque to cause trouble if you aren't careful.
That said, the FZ8 was the bike I was looking seriously at, until they came out with the 07. I haven't ridden one, so I can't compare, but I know it has more power, and is quite a bit heavier.
The FZ-07 is a hoot to ride, has plenty of power, and I think you would love it.

I think you will like the power coming on the F Z-07 in lower RPM than you have on the Fazer 8. The FZ -07 will be lighter and more nimble than your Fazer. The Fazer 8 is a great bike and will produce more power at higher RPM than the 07. But the 07 is so much fun!

thank you for the answer Mike and Texan, i think i will do the move this week. the torque difference is not huge, 60.8 ft-pound for the fazer an 50ft-pound for the FZ07. That one of the reason why i want to change for a 2-cyl, more low RPM torque, with the fazer, you need to keep it over 6000 rpm to have a good feeling. Looking for the white one or the grey.....very hesitant between the 2

bonjour! i'm also from Montreal and brand new rider. I chose the FZ-07 as my first ever bike and I don't regret it one bit. Don't worry about the power because in our mandatory riding courses we've dealt with bikes with that much power already. The FZ-07 just has that power straight from the gate so you gotta be smoother with the throttle but otherwise, not a worry.

If you have any other questions (in french if you prefer), feel free to contact me. We'll go for a ride someday :)

flag me down if you ever see me (taken at canal lachine)

Bonjour Nlsquare, j'ai acheté le FZ-07 et j'ai maintenant 1500km dessus, très satisfait :) Moins puissant que mon Fazer 8 mais beaucoup plus agréable à conduire. Je connais bien Lachine car j'y ai vécu 30 ans. Le bord de l'eau est magnifique. Au plaisir de te croiser un moment donné.
