  1. your comparison is spot on, except I believe the top speed of the FZ6 is alittle higher, around 135 to 139

  2. I get 45mpg highway and about 40 commuting on my FZ1.

  3. You have some mistakes. One mistake would be the FZ6 max speed, i have already reached 240Km/h on my FZ6 S2, and the chasis is even more advanced than the one on the FZ1, is aluminum DIE CAST with NO SOLDERING involved, not aluminum diamon shapped, it is die cast.
