Hello everybody. Name is Heath. I'm in eastern KY and I currently own a 2015 FZ1 that I have modded pretty heavily.

Great bike, but I want a bike that is more modern. The FZ1 is just too...2006 for me. I'll be soaking up all the info I can here for the new steed...which I will be getting in December. Hoping to get a good deal during winter and it's gonna be my bday gift.

FZ1 is currently for sale, sale or not...I'll be purchasing a new FZ10 come December.

I have owned 3 GEN1 and one GEN11 FZ's. I prefer my new FZ10. But I'll always have a soft spot for the 01-05 FZ1's.

Nice! I'm a modification nut, so I will be modding the new ride to my liking. Just hoping the wife feels sorry enough for me to let me get it sooner than December!

So...I guess it worked. Calling around tomorrow to see if I can score a Raven FZ10 Saturday. Got 4 or 5 dealers that say they have them in stock, online. We'll see!

Welcome Heath, were you on the FZ1OA forum?
Thanks for the welcome. Yes I am on FZ1OA.

I thought I would be getting a FZ10 tomorrow...sadly I won't be. Wife ruined my party. She says we have to wait til the 2018s come out. Happy wife happy life...I keep telling myself that.

She didn't feel sorry for me like I thought she did.

At least you'll still be getting the FZ10 and it's not an outright now. Just a bit of waiting and you'll get one after the winter months passes.

That's true, but oh do I want one now. Will be bitter sweet if they release an SP model in the US for 2018.

Not too sure on seeing the SP here in the states. The price difference in the UK between the regular MT10 and the MT10 SP is nearly 4k £. A similar price difference here would put it at practically the same price as the regular R1. Yamaha US is marketing the FZ10 here in the states as a cheaper, more roadworthy version of an R1 and R1s. Getting the SP here stateside would be very risky and it could potentially put this bike in direct competition with their flagship superbike which is selling relatively well compared to the other super bikes. We're actually a bit luckier here in the states as we get the R1 at a much better relative cost than the UK does (or the UK gets a much better pricing on the MT-10.) We also are the only market that I know of that got the R1s.

The good thing though is that with the release of the SP, you should now be able to find and buy the TFT display and electronic ohlins suspension and just upload the ECU file for the SP. Probably going to cost nearly half as much as the bike again in cost but oh well.

Never thought of that. At least there will be an option for the TFT display. Maybe a blue color will be released.

Haven't forgotten about the forum or the bike, just waiting patiently! The FZ10 WILL be beside the FZ1 soon!

Anybody have any info on the release of the 2018 MY? Looks like their release is my green light on getting a FZ10.

The new 2018 MT10 blue didn't impress me much. Got a great offer on a left over gray 2017 FZ10, going to pick it up tomorrow.

Good choice! I think the black and blue combo is ugly, much prefer the all blue euro model. US model has to be armor grey and flourescent yellow.

I’m really liking the 18 matte gray. As for the wheels not so much. I will be having wheels powder coated bronze/gold or silver/titanium.
