    Default Yamaha to launch the FZ8..

    (News courtesy Autoblog)

    The upper-middleweight naked bike segment, which currently has entrants from the likes of BMW, Aprilia and Ducati, is about to get an good ol' injection of Japanese know-how as Yamaha readies its upcoming new FZ8 for production. Yamaha apparently sees room for a machine that splits the difference between the smaller FZ6 (and FZ6R) and the full FZ1 naked literbike.

    As far as we're aware, Yamaha has confirmed neither the FZ8 nor its fully-faired FZ8R sibling for North America (we'll keep you posted), but it seems possible the models could make it Stateside if there's sufficient interest... which is why we're bringing you this initial official image of the FZ8. So, what do you think?

    Judging from the photo, the FZ8 appears to be based on the current FZ1, and internet rumors suggest the 800cc mill will be a downsized version of the former R1 engine with an identical stroke and smaller bore. We'll know soon enough the official unveiling is scheduled for March 12 but in the meantime, enjoy the teaser.

    The article doesn't even mention an R8. It just says that R1 would be rebored for this 800cc mill, which is obviously FZ8 as it seems...
    exactly...!!!
    or am I sounding dumb enough to understand ?
    Just because you haven't seen it doesnt mean its impossible...expect the unexpected.
