Yamaha FZ8 and Super Tenere prices leaked?

1 of 2

French site MotoStation says ‘reliable sources’ have leaked the price of Yamaha’s star bikes of 2010.  

They claim the R1200GS-rivalling Super Tenere will cost €14,999 (£13,416) inclusive of ABS and arrive in June and the middleweight roadster FZ8 €7999 (£7155) and arrive in May.   

That would put the Tenere at least £2500 above the BMW R1200GS Adventure and £1700 above an ABS-equipped Ducati Multistrada.

If true, the FZ8’s price would put it in closer contention with its chief rivals – the £6999 Triumph Street Triple R, the BMW F800R (£6460) and the Kawasaki Z750 (£6,020).

The pictures show a speculative mock-up of an FZ8 with the real headlight and a spy shot of a model of the real Super Tenere.
