In the US, you only get the one with faring and double headlights. They call it FZ1. In EU, you get the one with the fairing and double headlights which is called the FZ1 Fazer along with the one without the fairing and a single headlight that they call FZ1.

The one in the picture is the US spec.

Itís the Yamaha R15 (not a super bike).

Funny thing I could not find the industryís definition of a super bike.

We all know big powerfull engines = Super bike.

Is there a industry standard definition ?

This is what i could find.

Superbike racing motorcycles must have four-stroke engines of between 850 cc and 1200 cc for twins, and between 750 cc and 1000 cc for four cylinder machines.
