2011 Yamaha FZ8-N and Fazer8 Technical Specifications

Tuesday, March 23, 2010

Yamaha has assuredly appear abounding blueprint for its new middleweight artery sportsbikes, the naked FZ8-N and semi-faired yamaha Fazer8. A 779cc agent acquired from the FZ1 donk is the brilliant of the show, with a complete FZ1 anatomy and swingarm as well. The new agent makes decidedly added torque than the abate FZ6 for a gruntier, added attainable ability ambit about boondocks - but builds to a advantageous 105-horsepower top end blitz back it's time to get a ankle on. It looks like a fun, fast and affable artery sportsbike - and yes, yamaha FZ6 fans, it has formally replaced the 600 in the FZ lineup.

As abounding accept suspected, the agent is absolutely a scaled-down adaptation of the fuel-injected 1000cc FZ1 engine, alone to 779cc by abbreviation the agent bore, accretion compression, swapping out the pistons, crankshaft and top end. The consistent motor puts out a blow beneath 105 horsepower, with 82 Nm of torque.Effectively, that top-end application amount doesn't assume to be abundant up on the 90-odd rear caster horses offered by the lighter, 600cc FZ6 donk. But the stroked-out FZ8 makes its ability abundant beforehand in the rev range, a actuality which should accomplish it a abundant added accommodating and acquisitive powerplant about boondocks and in the majority of real-world benumbed conditions.

The bad account is that by abbreviation the FZ1 engine's bore, the FZ8 doesn't administer to afford any agent admeasurement or weight. The acceptable account that comes as a aftereffect is that the FZ8 is adored with the admirable FZ1 anatomy and swingarm, which do an accomplished job of accouterment acerbity and angle in all the appropriate places.There's not a lot for gearheads to get aflame about elsewhere; abeyance seems adequately basic, adjustable alone for rear preload, and the brakes are four-piston monoblock jobs, with the advantage of abacus ABS.

There's two versions available, aloof like with the FZ6 and yamaha FZ1 platforms - the naked FZ8-N looks nice and beefy and stylish, and the semifaired Fazer8 looks a little more... Practical. The FZ8-N weighs 211kg accessible to cycle with a abounding catchbasin of gas, the Fazer8 215kg - and you can add 5kg to either if you appetite the alternative ABS.
