Spy Photo: Yamaha FZ8R


Category: Dailies

A Lazer exhaust, maybe some "Ohlins" suspension and a big honkin’ “R” added to the badge. Middleweight nakeds are a hotly contested class in Europe and it looks like Yamaha’s getting in on the up-rated unclothed action, challenging bikes like the Triumph Street Triple R and Kawasaki Z750R. Jesus Christ, but doesn’t the motorcycle industry like to play follow-the-leader? Expect Yamaha FZ8R availability to be Surrender Monkey-only and performance to be largely identical to the stock bike.
