Based on the picture, it is basically an FZ1 albeit the different headlight and tail design. Otherwise, it pretty much looks like any other FZ1. What's the point?

 

Hopefully, when it is truly released, it will look fresh and different.

Yamaha FZ8 on sale in Summer 2010

By Andy Downes - New bikes 08 January 2010 14:48

 

The much-anticipated Yamaha FZ8 and Yamaha Super Tenere will be going on sale this summer according to Yamaha insiders.

 

Yamaha is working hard to promote both bikes with heavily-disguised images showing parts of both bikes and a recent silhouette of the Super Tenere showing the Yamaha R1-style front lights.

 

Yamaha officially unveiled the front light of the FZ8 a few weeks ago but there is no further information coming from Yamaha officially.

 

A Yamaha insider said: “The FZ8 will be seen later this year along with the Super Tenere which will be a good thing for increasing interest in new bikes and these bikes will hopefully stir up some important sales in 2010.”

 

Unofficially the FZ8 is thought to have a smaller capacity version of the 998cc four-cylinder motor from the FZ1 – itself based on the five-valve Yamaha R1 engine from 2005.

 

The FZ8 will be replacing the smaller-capacity FZ6 models as a sporty middleweight naked, leaving the XJ6, XJ6 Diversion and the new-for-2010 XJ6 Diversion F to cater for the novice and all-rounder markets.

 

It’s main rivals will be the BMW F800R, Honda Hornet 600, Triumph Street Triple R and the Aprilia Shiver 750.

 

The Super Tenere silhouette shows boxy off-road-style panniers, reinforcing Yamaha’s hints that the bike will be going head-to-head to with the BMW R1200GS, rather than aiming at Ducati’s more road-biased new Multistrada 1200.

 

Super Tenere technical highlights we already know about are:

- 3-mode ABS

- shaft drive

- linked brakes

- switchable engine maps

- ride-by-wire throttle

- traction control

- side-mounted radiators.

French site MotoStation says ‘reliable sources’ have leaked the price of Yamaha’s star bikes of 2010.

 

* 2010 Yamaha FZ8: official first picture

 

They claim the R1200GS-rivalling Super Tenere will cost €14,999 (£13,416) inclusive of ABS and arrive in June and the middleweight roadster FZ8 €7999 (£7155) and arrive in May.

 

That would put the Tenere at least £2500 above the BMW R1200GS Adventure and £1700 above an ABS-equipped Ducati Multistrada.

 

If true, the FZ8’s price would put it in closer contention with its chief rivals – the £6999 Triumph Street Triple R, the BMW F800R (£6460) and the Kawasaki Z750 (£6,020).

 

The pictures show a speculative mock-up of an FZ8 with the real headlight and a spy shot of a model of the real Super Tenere.

Welcome to the first official FZ8 News.

 

Back in November we released the headlight shot of the FZ8. Today the surprises keep on coming as we reveal a detail of the FZ8 Fazer. Yes, you read that correctly. The FZ8 will also be available in faired version with the same outstanding performance for an exhilarating riding experience.

 

More news on both FZ8 and FZ8 Fazer will be revealed on March 12th, 2010 and will be delivered directly to your inbox!

 

The countdown has begun.

 

Till then,
