FZ-09, Japanese Marketing at its Finest or too much Exhaust up the Nose?
Mar 20, 2014 - 12:57 PM - by mr pharmacist
Advertising is a funny business isn't it because at the end of the day you're not selling a product you're selling people someone elses opinion of them based on the image an object. This is why I find Yamaha's new effort for the FZ/MT family to be part fascinating, part baffling, purely entertaining.

Its Called Master of Torque and it takes place in Japan 2017. For any of you familiar with the Initial D anime series Master of Torque gives off the same vibe.

As for the back story, Tokyo will be hosting the Olympics in 2020 and throughout the city the Shutoko highway system is being dismantled and renovated to accomodate the new facilities. Our main character is 27 year old salaryman Dan Amo who works int he General Affairs department of Hyunga Corp. Hyunga is in the process of developing a high powered exo-suit that give people with just an average level of physical fitness the capabilities of a very select group of professional athletes. This is all part of the company’s warped plan to completely dominate their competitors and monopolize the industry.

Dan is not just your typical salaryman, by night he escapes his pallid day time occupation by working as a courier making pickups and deliveries on his FZ-09 Street Rally. He is known as the Zebra to a strange group of riders who trail him regularly on route 246 of the Shutoko, it is revealed that these riders are part of the Hyuga corp, but their purpose is not revealed, yet...

Episode One oddly named Idle Roughness debuted just today, Episode 2 will be out on May 16th, Episode 3 will be released on June 13 and Episode 4 will be available by July 13th.


I think this is some of the most tangible piece of marketing I have seen in sometime. Especially because it jives with the FZ09s narrative as the dark side of Japan. I feel that it does a great job of taping into the freedom from everything that comes from riding, depicted by Dans slumping figure at the end of the office day contrasted with his aggressive riding style and alert eyes. In terms of advertising, who doesnt want to be a hero?

Yamaha registered "YZF-R3" and "R3" trademarks, what will this bike be?
Jan 17, 2014 - 1:30 PM - by Slurm!
Yamaha has filed a trademark with the European Union for the names "YZR-R3" and "R3". The applications are still under review after they were submitted on January 6th.

What's in a name though? The trademark application is quite vague. It says the names will apply to "motorcycles, scooters, three-wheeled scooters and parts for all the aforesaid goods." It is normal to have vague trademark applications though. The FZ-09's application described it as an "apparatus for locomotion by land, air or water; motor vehicles including motorcycles, scooters with their parts and fittings not included in other classes." Last time I checked the FZ-09 neither flies or swims.



There are two bikes that could end up with the YZF-R3 name IMO. The YZF-R3 could be an upcoming small-displacement sportbike. The YZF-R25 was a prototype that had a displacement of 250cc. It could be that Yamaha decided to up the displacement of this bike in order to compete with bikes like the Honda CBR300R and Kawasaki Ninja 300. The R3 could use a beefed up version of the Rs5's parallel-twin engine. This route would be similar to what Kawasaki did with the Ninja 250 in turning it into the Ninja 300.

The second possibility is that the "3" may signify a three-cylinder engine, following the return of Yamaha Triples in the FZ-09. Yamaha previously announced that it would introduce more three-cylinder models, and a fully-faired sportbike would be a logical follow-up to the FZ-09. Usually Yamaha uses numbers to indicate engine displacement and not number of cylinders though. Given that, a 300cc sportbike is a more likely outcome.

Right now Yamaha is denying knowledge of a YZF-R3. It pointed towards the R25 shown in Tokyo instead.

Do you think that this bike will be a FZ-09 follow-up or do you think it will be a 300cc sportbike? Any other ideas of what the YZF-R3 could be?
