Yes. Further back in this thread and elsewhere are overlay pictures of the FZ-09 and the FJ-09. The suspension, wheels, and frame are very clearly identically sized on both models.

I guess that means we have to take whatever number they print and add $600 to get the "real" price. Plus tax and tag.
