Yamaha FZ8 Vid

I like this motorcycle, more than I should! With a bit more windscreen and GIVI bags, and I might have to have it.
MSRP is $8499, not bad.

Here is the vid below(on the MSTA forum):

they are the same bike, this is a sleeved FZ1. Over There, i think both bikes are available in two versions, with and without the half fairing. sharp. but i'd go with the thou. i wanted one of those when i was bike shopping, but the versys deal happened first.

edit: here's a review.

In a world full of people, only some want to ride. Isn't that crazy?

I can't believe how many cool bikes are coming out this year. I think I'm staying with the V for now, but I'm not sure how long I'll be able to resist trying something else.

Why anybody would buy a sleeved down 1000 is beyond me. There can't be any weight savings. Just get the FZ1. Better yet, the Z1000 or the Ninja 1000.

Thanks Kevrider, I think you are right. For 2 grand more, get the added horsepower and wind protection. Tough choice between the FZ and the new Ninja 1000, surely there is a test in the works there as well.
