New Yamaha FZ8 In USA


The North American division of Yamaha recently announced it has introduced the 2011 model FZ8 naked sportbike to the product line-up. Originally developed for the European market, the FZ8 comes to fill in the gap between the FZ1 and FZ6R, at a MSRP of $8490.

The machine comes with a fuel-injected, liquid-cooled 779cc Inline Four engine that is based somewhat on the previous generation (non-crossplane-crankshaft) YZF-R1 motor. The engine, which is tuned for low-to-midrange performance, is coupled with a wide-ratio six-speed transmission with chain final drive.
