We don’t care if it’s because of changing tastes and trends, or if the naked/standard motorcycle is the industry’s attempt to tempt drivers away from their 4-wheeled cages, but these are the hot bikes of 2009. While this Abarth Assetto Corse FZ1 is merely just a show bike to help commemorate 100 years of Fiat sport-tuning, it’s choosing comes days after the release of the Ducati Streetfighter debut (and new Monster style launch), as well as KTM’s Super Duke R recoloring, just to name a few. Pictures and more after the jump.
The FZ1 sports a paint trim reminescent of the early Abarth Racing Fiats. Go fast parts include: Akrapovic, Öhlins suspension, Marchesini wheels, front Brembo monoblock calipers, which are gripping Braking wave discs, and Pirelli Superbike slicks. So far the bike is only a promotion bike, but there is some hopes of maybe a limited production run of maybe 100 or so (or that just might be a certain journalists secret hope).
Yamaha, when are you going to ship the FZ1 with the Euro headlight? When?
