Yamaha has just released the UK prices for the ‘budget’ Fazer8 and FZ8 and they are going to cost a wallet-melting £8799 for the half-faired bike and £7799 for the naked FZ8.

MCN had reliable inside information that predicted the prices of the two bikes was going to be considerably less – up to £1000 less was the information we had.

We never expected the bikes to be this expensive when they are pitched as sporty middleweights.

The prices are much higher than rivals like the Kawasaki Z750 which costs £5999 and the Triumph Street Triple at £6299. Even the higher specification Triumph Street Triple R costs less than both at £6999.

A Yamaha spokesman said: “The price has been set at the middle point between the FZ1 and the XJ6.”
