Earlier this we announced the unveiling of an all-new joining Yamaha’s supersport the Fazer8 as it will be called in its targeted continent. A middleweight powered by a 799cc inline-four the 2010 Yamaha Fazer8 has to replace the FZ6 model and it does it in the style of the series, meaning you get a fairing and the bike finds positioned on the thin line track-gained performance and a comfortable position.


The 2010 main goal is to position as leader of the middleweight sport-touring by raising the stakes using the old “bigger is better” recipe and it it by creating some sort of between the FZ6 and FZ1 models also in the US. So while the machine’s 799cc, inline-four with DOHC FZ1 ’s … length it decreases bore to 68.0mm and the figure (62lbs•ft) is with 50% than that of the FZ6 (46lbs•ft), all the bike weighs in as much as the FZ1 its 485lbs wet weight.

So while these features make it clear to us that the will offer a whole new of riding experience, both at and short trips, there’s more to say about the motor it. For instance, the electronically fuel mill produces exactly hp at just 10.000 rpm, Yamaha really concentrated on the side of the bike.

From the point of view, you get a rather riding position with the being mounted at 32 inches the ground and the handlebars raised for reach. The Fazer8 offers a and an optional high screen, so protection is also taken consideration.

Yamaha has a long of building and successfully selling FZ sport-touring bikes, so there’s you can reproach to the Fazer8 by simply through the specs, and the fact the thing is built around the Deltabox frame and features forks doesn’t help Also, the latest Fazer brings in 310mm front brakes and optional ABS, so have to see what the competition for it.


While the 2010 Fazer8 addresses to the type of rider that would normally opted for the Fazer6, it with different models Leaving the Suzuki SV series behind, the Fazer8 makes the Mana 850 GT ABS look dated and up to the Triumph Tiger .

But this is a whole new kind of middleweight motorcycle and we wouldn’t be wrong in it is found in a class of its own.

The latest Fazer may be powered by a new engine and compete with new and different bikes, but when it to the way it looks, there aren’t new features to refer to as, visually, the remains faithful to the original look, which at its time, was from the YZF-R1. respectively models.

The bike is characterized by a nose and big headlamps, has a mid-sized for good wind protection and two that look like eyes for rearwards visibility. a nicely contoured 4.5 gallons and although the seats look sport than touring, really make the rear end sharper.

Regardless of color which can be White or Black, the new Fazer8’s parts are all matt black So are the rims on the Blue/Black colors, White goes best a pair of gold rims and arms.

Overall, the bike like built for speed and meaning Yamaha thought at it as to a haul companion, which is what Fazer buyers for.
