Yamaha FZ8 and Fazer8 official pics and details

Here are all the official pics of the new Yamaha FZ8 and Yamaha Fazer8.
The bike was presented at the 2010 Roma motodays event after plenty of teaser shots and leaked pics.
The new models complete the FZ1 and FZ6 range, which are also available in the Fazer semi-faired version.

The FZ8 and Fazer8 are bikes with a distinctive style, designed to be agile but powerful.

Both are equipped with a new 779cc engine with 106.
2 hp and maximum torque of 82 Nm (at 8,000 rpm).
The models fit into the range between all-powerful superbikes and easy-to-manage, medium range sportbikes.

The Fazer8 and FZ8 models are compact, with cast alluminium frames and swingarms, with rapid steering and good road grip.
The Fazer8 has more sports touring features across all riding conditions, although we’re still looking at super street performance levels, with better aerodynamics.
The prices announced at the presentation have the FZ8 at about 8,190 euros, and the Fazer8 at 8,690 euros.
See after the jump for the technical information on both bikes and the complete galleries.
