Combining sports performance and agressive styling with all day riding comfort, the 2012 Yamaha FZ8 is a special breed of motorcycle. The word practical pops to mind, but don’t confuse practical with dull. Most riders can only afford one machine and the 2012 FZ8 is worth a serious look. It delivers solid performance from its 779cc inline-four engine and excellent handling thanks to the 22012 FZ1 inspired twin spar aluminum frame. And when it comes to comfort, it’s in the bag.
Special niche models are popping up everywhere. Unfortunately, most of us can only afford one bike. The FZ8 is a brilliant “all-rounder” that brings fun, excitement and adrenalin to each and every ride. It is ready to slice its way through the “twisties”, cruise the backroads in comfort and style or make that daily commute a bunch more enjoyable. Attitude, power, handling and style, the FZ8 is the ultimate everyday sport bike.
The 2012 Yamaha FZ8 is a do-it-all sport bike with amazing all around performance for both the urban commando and the weekend canyon carver. And at 800cc it splits the difference between a 600 and 1000cc litre bike so you get lightweight handling along with great torque… all in a stylish upright package.
