2017 Yamaha FJ-09


The most performance, versatility and value in one motorcycle - the FJ-09™ with its 3-cylinder engine, Traction Control and a long list of sport touring features dominates the competition.

Additional Features

  • COMPLETE INSTRUMENTATION: Multi-function digital instrument panel features speedometer, tachometer, fuel level and consumption, clock, gear indicator, eco indicator, D-MODE and TCS indicators.
  • ADJUSTABLE WINDSCREEN: The windscreen is height-adjustable to three positions at 15mm increments without the use of tools.
  • STANDARD CENTERSTAND: A centerstand is standard on the FJ-09 for added rider convenience when parking or doing maintenance.
  • POWER PORT: A 12V electric outlet comes standard as an additional convenience, mounted adjacent to the instrument panel, and a second port can be added with Genuine Yamaha Accessories.

Chassis / Suspension

  • PLUSH, CONTROLLED SUSPENSION: For excellent damping characteristics, the front suspension is an inverted fork with 41mm inner tubes with 5.4 inches of travel. The front suspension features adjustment for spring preload and rebound damping.
  • COMPACT, HORIZONTAL MONOSHOCK: The rear suspension features a linked-type Monocross® shock. The shock is positioned below the seat and features an almost horizontal alignment. This unique positioning contributes to mass centralization and a slimmer body design. The rear suspension is also adjustable for spring preload and rebound damping.
  • POWERFUL, CONTROLLABLE BRAKES: Front brakes consist of two floating 298mm discs with 4-piston calipers. The calipers are radial mounted for improved feel just like Yamaha’s race-winning supersport machines. The standard anti-lock brake system (ABS) works to help prevent wheel lock during hard deceleration for additional braking security.
  • EXTENDED RANGE: Large 4.8 gallon fuel tank with 44 miles per gallon means less frequent stops for fuel when on the open road.
  • STRONG, LIGHTWEIGHT FRAME: Lightweight Controlled-Fill die cast aluminum frame and swingarm is used to reduce weight.
  • ADJUSTABLE ERGONOMICS: The aluminum tapered handlebar is adjustable up to 10mm to accommodate different rider preferences, while the rider’s seat can be easily adjusted 0.6 inches up or down for additional legroom. An accessory low saddle is available, dropping the seat height by 1.25 inches, and the rear suspension height adjuster accessory brings the seat down an additional 9/16 inch.


  • CROSSPLANE CRANKSHAFT: This FJ-09 engine features Yamaha’s “Crossplane Crankshaft Concept” that provides linear torque development in response to the rider’s throttle input.
  • RIDE-BY-WIRE THROTTLE: The ride-by-wire Yamaha Chip Controlled Throttle (YCC-T) system senses the slightest throttle input by the rider, relays the data to the ECU which sends commands to a servo-motor actuator controlling the intake airflow volume.
  • SELECTABLE ENGINE CHARACTER: The FJ-09 is equipped with Yamaha D-MODE (or “Drive Mode”) variable throttle control system. The rider can choose at will from three throttle valve control maps (Standard Mode, “A” Mode, and “B” Mode) for different performance characteristics.
  • TRACTION CONTROL: Traction Control System (TCS) reduces rear wheel slip on wet surfaces or unpaved roads. The system detects rear wheel spin and reacts through combined control of the ignition timing, fuel injection volume and throttle opening (YCC-T).

Top Features

  • STUNNING 3-CYLINDER ENGINE: 847cc liquid-cooled, in-line 3-cylinder, DOHC, 12-valve “Crossplane Crankshaft Concept” engine derived from the award winning FZ-09™. This engine combines advanced high tech components including YCC-T® and Yamaha D-Mode, with a crossplane concept crankshaft to deliver an exciting, torquey and quick-revving engine character.
  • ADVANCED ENGINE CONTROL: Yamaha Chip Controlled Throttle (YCC-T) is Yamaha’s exclusive ride-by-wire throttle system, derived from MotoGP® technology. YCC-T works in unison with the standard Traction Control System (TCS) to give the rider responsive throttle feel with the security of traction control for roads with less than ideal traction.
  • PRACTICALITY PLUS PERFORMANCE: Touring amenities include a height-adjustable windshield, side fairing, adjustable riding position, 12V electrical outlet and a generous 4.8 gallon fuel tank. The FJ-09™ is ideal for the daily commute, short fun rides, or weekend getaways.
  • POWERFUL, CONTROLLABLE BRAKES: Modern radial-mount four-piston front calipers squeeze 298mm rotors for exceptional stopping ability, while the anti-lock brake system (ABS) works to help prevent wheel lock during hard deceleration.
  • TOP SHELF FEATURES: A modern and stylish LED headlight offers superior visibility and complements the FJ-09’s design. Multi-function dot matrix LCD instrument panel is designed to visually relay data to the rider quickly and clearly, including fuel consumption info and gear position.
