The Yamaha FZX 750, also known as the FZX700 or FZX 700 Fazer in the American market, was a standard motorcycle manufactured by Yamaha from the early 1980s until the mid-1990s.

In 1983, the Japanese manufacturer released the Yamaha FZX 750, a standard motorcycle that packed a retuned version of the engine used on the FZ 750 model, delivering 10 hp less but more mid-range power.

In addition, the maker released a 50cc smaller displacement version for the American market to avoid import tariffs. The US version was imported in 1986 and 1987 only.

The FZX 750 model was identical in design to the US version, packing standard features, such as a single headlight unit, a one-piece dual seat with a passenger grab handle, a four-into-one exhaust system, a side stand, and lightweight aluminum wheels.

It was built around a double-cradle steel frame, softened by a 38 mm telescopic fork on the front and a five-way preload-adjustable shock absorber on the rear, providing optimum suspension performance and handling.

In the braking department, the bike packed two 267 mm discs coupled to dual-piston calipers on the front wheel and a 267 mm disc squeezed by a single-piston caliper on the rear wheel, delivering optimum braking performance.

The 1983 Yamaha FZX 750 had installed a 698cc four-stroke four-cylinder liquid-cooled engine underneath its fuel tank, boasting 102 hp with a peak force at 10,500 rpm and 81 Nm (60 lb-ft) torque at 8,000 rpm.
