FZ8

Aggressive looks and aggressive character define the Yamaha FZ8 – a high performance real world sports bike designed to deliver a shot of adrenaline every time you turn the key.

At the heart of the FZ8 is a flexible and powerful 779cc engine with instant drive and torque at low revs, and a trademark Yamaha rush of horsepower as you approach the red line. Light, easy handling and roomy ergonomics round out the ultimate everyday sports machine.

The FZ8 is not a bike for beginners – it’s the naked sportsbike with true attitude and the power to back it up.
