The Yamaha FZ8-N - Quick Review


1000cc class motorcycles score most of the glory when it comes to the bigger two-wheelers, but a growing middleweight movement is drawing attention to motorcycles that are lighter, nimbler and not quite as frighteningly powerful.

The likely soon to be released in Thailand, Yamaha FZ8-N goes back to basics with its no-frills feature list and minimal styling. Powered by a liquid cooled 4-stroke, DOHC, forward-inclined parallel 4-cylinder, 779cc engine that revs to an impressive 11,500rpm, the 212 kilogram Yamaha FZ8 is tuned for low and midrange torque and is well-suited to the aluminum frame.

The engine produces 104.80 horsepower @ 10,000rpm, with a maximum torque of 82.0Nm @ 8,000rpm, the fueling of the Yamaha FZ8 engine is perfect.
During a weekend spent exploring Singapore, the engine provided loads of smooth-spinning power, the chassis proved eminently flickable, and the dual-disc front brakes were more than up to the task at hand.

Motorcycles like the Yamaha FZ8-N take you back tot that place where motorcycling is more about simple thrills than fear and frills, offering a refreshing alternative to the usual 1000cc class motorcycle suspects. Read about the latest Yamaha FZ8N information at 2012 Yamaha FZ8N in Thailand
