Wonder if the new FZ8 will be coming to Thailand? I heard rumours that it may be. Nothing solid yet but coming out next year. http://www.yamaha-motor-europe.com/fz8/ Yamaha has unveiled this first official picture of the new FZ8 middleweight naked â€“ but nothing else. MCN said this. "Thereâ€™s no information or pictures beyond this headlight shot â€“ Yamaha UK wasnâ€™t even aware of the pictureâ€™s release! It is believed the FZ8 will replace Yamahaâ€™s current FZ6 models as a sporty middleweight naked, leaving the XJ6, XJ6 Diversion and the new-for-2010 XJ6 Diversion F to cater for the novice and all-rounder markets. Itâ€™s main rivals will be the BMW F800R, Honda Hornet 600, Triumph Street Triple R and the Aprilia Shiver 750. The engine is believed to be unique to the FZ8, but draws on the design of Yamahaâ€™s current supersport engines, and tuned to suit the naked bike application. Little is known about the level of chassis equipment â€“ expect mid-level componentry better than the basic XJ6 range, but not quite as high quality as the race-spec kit on the 2010 R6. MCN is working on the story now â€“ weâ€™ll keep you up to date as more information on the bike breaks. Expected to be lighter than the current FZ6 and have an aluminum chassis and more sophisticated suspension than its smaller sibling, anticipate digital instrumentation, a low-exiting exhaust and modern lights (utilizing the latest LEDs). The bike should be revealed by Yamaha shortly. Stay tuned. That's about all I have seen.
