  1. http://www.sportrider.com/bikes/143_1210_2013_yamaha_fz8_and_fjr1300a_first_look/

    I'm only interested in the FZ8. Seems they've listened to their critics and made a few changes - adding adjustment to the fork and slimming down the exhaust can.

    Not sure if I like the colour change so much. It looks ok but is that the only colour variant.. ?

  2. 9k for a brand new FZ8? I take it that's US pricing?
  3. 9999 for current model in syd
  4. Australian dealers are heavily discouting the old FZ8's. Probably end up about $13,000.
    The updated suspension is a welcome change. I find the yamaha triple announcement alot more interesting though
  5. Even with the new features it would be hard to sell against the new Z800, Shiver750, F800 etc.

    They need to sell the new FZ8 at the price they are flogging the old ones off at.
