The biggest complaint on the FZ-09 is its limited range of suspension damping which will hamper its handling performance in a fast rider’s hands.
Despite not employing the higher spec braking componentry as the MV Agusta or Triumph the FZ-09’s brakes achieved the second-best stopping distance. Though they did overheat after a couple hard stops.
