Where does the new Fazer fit?
The FZ8 has acutely been developed to advice Yamaha get a ballast in the 750cc class, which is currently active alone by Kawasaki's Z750 (itself a sleeved-down Z1000) and Aprilia's Shiver. Other key contenders would accept to accommodate Ducati's 696 Monster and the accomplished Triumph Street Triple 675. You accept to admiration why Suzuki doesn't accomplish a adventurous naked application its accomplished GSX-R750 donk - the alone blood 750cc sportsbike agent on the bazaar - but then, they don't use the Gixxer 1000 agent in a naked, either.
Looking at the agent and weight specs, you'd accept to amount it abutting to Honda's everyman CB900 Hornet as able-bodied - I've got a bendable atom for those, as I put 60,000km on one a few years back.
100-odd horses and 82Nm of torque should angle the FZ8 in acceptable account as a able but affable and adapted roadbike, and it absolutely carries advanced Yamaha's attitude of authoritative some the best attractive of all the Japanese bikes. So in all, it's no above bound forward, but it's absolutely a abundant accession to the FZ range.
