I've just purchased a new 12 plate FZ8 from Arnold's Motorcycles in Leicester and at £6799 with 0% finance I am a very happy camper (ok, biker hehe) and the service from Arnold's was second to none. I got a very good trade-in price for my 1999 Triumph Daytona 955i against the new FZ8. I test rode the XJ6 Diversion and wasn't overly impressed although the bike did handle very well and once on the dual carriageway was a swift mover indeed if a little high revving, but that's 600's for you. Anyway, I picked up the XJ from Arnold's in Leicester and rode up to their head office branch in Loughborough to pick up the demo FZ8 taking in the A6 for most of the 10 or so miles to get there, once there , quick loo break and the guys had the demo bike out the back ready for me to ride. As I walked out of the back door of the showroom I was greeted by the black curves of the 12 plate demo FZ8 and instantly a huge grin was upon my chops, even better the sun was shining and I was in just the right mood for riding back to my house near Oadby and then finally back the 3 or 4 miles into Leicester to return the bike to Arnold's. The entire ride was a joy, nothing aching, nothing hurting like it did on the Daytona and after an hour I arrived back at Arnold's with a smile that said just start the finance application I want one !! Reluctantly handing over the keys to Ian the sales guy and before I knew it my finance application had been accepted, a great p/x on my 13 yr old Triumph had been offered and I was asked when did I want to collect my new bike, how about the following day I replied.......the bike is awesome, so easy to ride, still running the engine in so cannot comment on top speed but I just love riding it, did 400 miles this weekend and got off it as refreshed as when I got on , seems pretty good on fuel too with it's 17 litre tank, 3 of which is reserve, I clocked nearly 170 miles on a full tank costing around £18 quid or just over, not bad for a naked and the fact it has to carry a lump of a bloke, my old Daytona used to give me around 150 miles to it's 18 litre tank which considering it's a 150cc bigger than the FZ is pretty good going. Anyway, to summarise, a great bike, easy to ride, fantastic styling and comfort and at present Yamaha have a 0% finance deal on the FZ8 plus a selected few others in the Yam range. My only slight negative is when pulling away, the bike is probably a little too light in weight and you tend to sway from side to side as you get going, other than that, perfectamundo ! Buy one you won't regret it !
