I've had good experience with VW Beetle parts from Brazil, why not bikes too? Cases, generators, stock carbs, etc. All good stuff, at a fraction of unobtainium German costs.



With the advent of the CNC lathe anyone with the desire to achieve a higher plateau of craftsmanship can. Look at the firearms industry, what use to be crap is now world-class (Tarus, FM).



And since the wife is from Brazil, I have to give it a plug. Oh, and I like the new Yamaha, BTW.

I think he is talking about living in Brazil and owning one of these, not about them being actually assembled there.



But I have been known to be incorrect...

Forget the FZ. Buy a naked SV650 and, for a couple hundred bucks, you can make it into whatever you want.

I don't know about the FZ, but I have a 2001 Yamaha TTR 225 that was manufactured in Brazil, and that little sucker takes large amounts of abuse without any problems, so I think they have the quality control part figured out, I understand that they produce the 225 in a street legal version that is also very reliable.

My two cents

Buy the FZ. It looks more modern. There are more aftermarket goodies for it. In my area naked bikes are not popular at all. There are more FZs than Zrxs and hornets. I own a ZRX. So I kinda pay attention to naked bikes (at least till I find a buyer for mine).
