The Yamaha FZX750 was a motorcycle made in Japan from the early 1980s until the mid-1990s, although was only imported as a non grey import into the UK in the 1980s. The US version was known as the FZX-700 Fazer, and was imported only in 1986 and 1987.
Its engine was a retuned version of the four-stroke DOHC twenty-valve four-cylinder inline engine found in the FZ750, producing ten BHP less than the 105 of the sports model, but having a stronger midrange.
Designed as a custom, it featured an almost solid rear wheel, low seat, and more chrome than would normally be expected. Unusually, it had downdraft carburettors built into the design of the thirteen-litre tank.
Frequently referred to as the mini or baby Yamaha V-Max due to a slight similarity in style, it could hold its own against the larger more powerful bike, due to its far lower weight and twenty-valve aspiration.
Its current values remain high, due to its attractive unaging style, and the seat being low enough for shorter riders.
