Yamaha’s new FZ8 Fazer has been fully revealed in this set of leaked pictures.

The new bike, due to be officially unveiled in the summer as a replacement for the FZ6 Fazer, had until now only been partially revealed with two teaser shots released by Yamaha of just the nose.   

But these new pictures, believed to have been leaked to the media from the Yamaha factory in Japan, now show the full bike in all its glory.

It’s immediately clear the new FZ8 is based very closely on the FZ1, its 1000cc big brother.

Like that bike both half-faired (Fazer) and naked (FZ8) versions will be available. The motor is believed to be a sleeved-down version of the FZ1 engine and to produce around 120bhp compared to the FZ1’s 150.

We’ll bring you more details (and pictures) as soon as possible.
