For 2015 Yamaha made measurable changes to the FZR includung going to the Nano Excell Hull for lighter weight, other FZR standards remain, including the telescopic steering column. Featuring three positions, it extends to make standing more comfortable, and lowers to make the craft feel even more aggressive. Try the latter to get the best ride in calm water, and the former to take some of the back-bending posture out of standing when trying to absorb a choppy sea. Like all Yamahas, the craft also features the remote security system to lock out the ignition or govern the power output. One possibly overlooked feature is the carbon-fiber texture on the dash visor. It just further adds to that aftermarket look on a boat that already competes with higher-dollar, aftermarket offerings. That’s why on the FZR, the extras will probably always be secondary to the extra-exciting performance. The FZR is now, more than ever, truly a hardcore musclecraft…and trust me, oh so worthy of the title.
