well I only put 26 miles on it, it started to rain hard got home just in time.
I can tell you this bike was so fun to ride. last bike I rode was a 1998 Suzuki dr 400 enduro off road.
there's a huge differents in power and handling its going to take some time for me, its my first road bike.
im 51 years old I feel a little odd riding a bike like this at my age. my friend ride Harleys.
but im having fun :) ill see if I get time ill take some photos? its all stock!

Good for you man! I can imagine that the power differential is "noticeable." HAHA!

I applaud you for getting on the 07 instead of a Harley like all of your buddies! Go your own way man!

I ordered mine, color unknown this past Saturday. Basically, I'm getting the next one in stock. Dealer was not sure when. They called me today and are doing a trade with another dealership. My Rapid Red FZ07 will be ready for pickup on Saturday, sooner than I expected. Perfect timing; in two weeks I have a week vacation!

I usually do a lot of negotiating, leave, go to another dealer and negotiate some more. Not this time since it was the only FZ-07 around. I over-paid by quite a bit for that too. I traded in a 2014 Grom with 3000 miles and a 2014 Ninja 300 with abs, low mileage, both bikes in pristine condition and I paid an additional $2940 out the door.

:cool:
Hello all, I signed my papers on Monday, And I pick it up Friday, I got the graphite, just the one I wanted. I was trying to get the ninja 300 but yamaha was having the 1st time buyer program so. That's that, I have a 2015 Yamaha FZ-07 liquid graphite :D and I couldn't be more proud!

I traded in a 2014 Ninja 300 for my FZ-7. The FZ is a much faster bike off the line as you probably know. Much more torque and hp and only 10 lbs. heavier than the Ninja 300. The Ninja 300 has to get up high in the rev range to develop its torque. Still a great little bike but a sport bike in looks only...and not the street bike the FZ-07 is. Congratulations on the new bike. Ride safely.

Congratulations man fz07 is a way better choice you get twice the engine for only like a $1000 more than the ninja 300 and now u wont have spend again when u get bore of the 300 quick.

On the 300 i was like "cool I'm riding a motorcycle" now on the fz07 is like "fuk yeah im riding a motorcycle and im so damn comfortable, and bye bye 300 I'm passing u on 5th gear with no effort lol"

But be careful if this is your first bike she is torquey as hell and no abs so practice braking in a parking lot so you can get use to her

Yeah haha, I still probably would have preferred to start off on a ninja, but this is the cards I was dealt. But I'm in love already with it and I don't even have it yet lol. I will be doing much practicing this weekend in parking lots, thank you guys!

This is my first bike in 29years! (1985 Honda VF500F blue/white). Actually passed PA learners permit on Thursday .
Never had an actual license. Anyway got to test ride a red FZ-07 in dealership parking lot. Astonishing powerful!
Taking it home Tuesday hopefully. Gonna need lots of practice, I'm almost afraid of it.

If you've had 29 years away from motorcycle riding, do yourself a favor and sign up for the MSF class and experience the basics again. 29 years is a loooong time away from anything, much less something like riding a motorcycle. Your statement of "almost afraid of it" tells me that you really need to do the MSF class.

Congrats on getting the new bike, but please....take your time and do the things that will help insure that you have a long and safe riding career.

This statement is so wrong. Being away from something for 29 years, especially riding a motorcycle is not to be taken lightly. Just one out of practice, being nervous, inexperienced mistake could end his riding for a long time or maybe even forever. He needs to take the MSF class and slowly get back into riding by putting some seat time on the bike with the proper riding habits that are taught during the class. Your advice is less than good.

that's what I did haven't rode a bike since 1981, got on the bike with in 2 minutes I felt comfortable with the bike. just take it slow and get to know the bike and the way it handles.

I bought the graphite fz07 with blue frame and rims on August 29th, had to wait 4 days for it to get shipped from Ohio and built for me. I have already put 1500 miles on it and love every second of it. Me and a friend modified the stock exhaust and I just installed a puig sport wind screen this morning. So stoked..
