Yamaha has released information and more photos of the company’s new FZ8 and Fazer8 motorcycles.
The bikes are powered by a new 779 cc four-cylinder motor that makes 106 hp and 60.5 lb-ft (82 Nm) of torque.
Both bikes feature aluminum frames that use the engine as a stressed member, 43 mm USD forks, monoshock rear suspension, and four-piston monoblock brake calipers at the front.
The Fazer8 comes with a half-fairing and a windscreen, while the FZ8 is all undressed.
Wet weight is 211 kg (216 kg with ABS) for the naked FZ8 and four kilos more for the Fazer8.
Wheelbase is 1,460 mm for both. Both models are shod in standard-sized 120/70-17 and 180/55-17 tires.
In Europe, where the bikes will first be marketed, MSRP will be €8,190 for the FZ8 and €8,690 for the Fazer8 — that’s $11,435 and $12,133 in Canadian dollars.
