Full specifications and photos for Yamaha’s new middleweights — the FZ8 and

Yamaha has finally released specifications for its new middleweight street the … FZ8-N and semi-faired A 779cc engine derived the FZ1 donk is the star of the show, a complete FZ1 frame and swingarm as The new engine makes significantly torque than the smaller FZ6 for a more accessible power around town — but to a healthy 105-horsepower top end rush it’s time to get a boogie on.

It like a fun, fast and street sportsbike — and FZ6 fans, it has formally replaced the 600 in the FZ

As many have suspected, the is indeed a scaled-down version of the 1000cc FZ1 engine, dropped to by reducing the piston bore, compression, swapping out the pistons, and top end. The resulting motor out a touch under 105 horsepower, 82 Nm of torque.

Effectively, that top-end figure doesn’t seem to be up on the 90-odd rear wheel offered by the lighter, 600cc FZ6 But the stroked-out FZ8 makes its power earlier in the rev range, a fact should make it a much willing and eager powerplant town and in the majority of real-world conditions.

The bad news is that by the FZ1 engine’s bore, the FZ8 doesn’t to shed any engine size or The good news that as a corollary is that the FZ8 is blessed the wonderful FZ1 frame and swingarm, do an excellent job of providing rigidity and in all the right places.

There’s not a lot for gearheads to get excited elsewhere; suspension seems basic, adjustable only for preload, and the brakes are four-piston jobs, with the option of ABS.

There’s two versions just like with the FZ6 and FZ1 — the … FZ8-N nice and chunky and stylish, and the Fazer8 looks a little Practical. The FZ8-N weighs ready to roll with a tank of gas, the Fazer8 — and you can add 5kg to either if you want the ABS.

Where does the new fit?

The FZ8 has clearly been to help Yamaha get a foothold in the class, which is currently only by Kawasaki’s Z750 a sleeved-down Z1000) and Aprilia’s Other key contenders would to include Ducati’s 696 Monster and the Triumph Street Triple You have to wonder why Suzuki make a sporty … its excellent GSX-R750 donk the only purebred 750cc engine on the market — but they don’t use the Gixxer engine in a …, either.

Looking at the engine and weight you’d have to rate it to Honda’s everyman CB900 as well — I’ve got a spot for those, as I put 60,000km on one a few back.

100-odd horses and of torque should stand the FZ8 in stead as a powerful but friendly and roadbike, and it certainly carries Yamaha’s tradition of making the best looking of all the Japanese So in all, it’s no major forward, but it’s certainly a addition to the FZ range.

Speculation has been mounting in corners of the Internet that the FZ8 has designed to effectively replace the Such scuttlebutt postulates the ‘friendly’ 600cc category be handled by the more utilitarian XJ6 and and that the highly-strung FZ6, needs a lot of revs to feel it’s taking off, disappear so that Yamaha can the FZ range as a … sports for more experienced riders. And if Europe’s website is anything to go by, it the rumours are true — the FZ6 and have disappeared altogether.

The FZ6 certainly has its fans, plenty of like the retuned R6 engine’s power curve — but if the FZ8 to pull off that same rush, while adding in genuine usable torque low, I think it’s to say you’ve got an all-round more bike. We look forward to one! Full specs and there’s loads of photos in the FZ8 gallery .
