2010_Yamaha_FZ8.jpg

This is the headlight of the 2010 Yamaha FZ8, an FZ6-replacing rival to the Kawasaki Z750 and Aprilia Shiver 750. 800 is better than 750, right? The FZ8 means the torque-free FZ6 will be dropped from Yamaha's European range, again giving the company a bike with an engine capable of competing with other middleweight nakeds, something Yamaha hasn't had since the Fazer's Thundercat-derived powertrain was killed by tightening emissions regulations. Nothing else is officially known about the FZ8, including its likelihood of reaching US shores.
