2012 Yamaha Bold New Graphics

Dailies, Galleries -


It might be worth celebrating that the white 2012 FZ6R will lose the terrible graphics offered in 2011, but unfortunately you can still add a similar graphics package to the 2012 R6 for $200 over its base price of $11,390. A limited edition of 1500 R6′s will be available for 2012 in the same 50th anniversary colors as the R1 for a $500 premium. These bikes will also boast 50th anniversary emblems on the tanks and numbered plates showing the production number. The 2012 FZ8 will now available in gray. While the 2012 R1 gets traction control, the rest of Yamaha’s street bikes will have to make due with these slightly tweaked color and graphics options and no other significant upgrades.

    The red & white is ok, but I’ll never ever buy a white bike. Nasty, and because I never wash my bikes, even nastier.

      Ha ha, my pearl white Kwakka does okay!

    2012 is shaping up to be a tremendously boring year for motorcycles. Looks like the pre economy crunch pipeline is finally dry.

      Well, there are some great Euro-bikes coming next year.

      MV Agusta F3
      MV Agusta 675 Brutale

      Triumph Daytona 675
      Triumph Street Triple

      Ducati Streetfighter 848

      As for the Japanese, I haven’t seen anything worth mentioning… I’m hoping for an all new CBR600RR at least…

    Wow. Those graphics are so hip, fresh, and sweet. One suggestion: next time, hire a graphic designer.

      They did have a graphic designer, it was just the paint shop from Need for Speed on xbox.

    Holy shit. With the exception of the white/red striped R6, those look terrible. I wasn’t going to look, but I did. I tried to look away, but I couldn’t. It’s like a train wreck.
