Yamaha Fazer8 to cost £8799; FZ8 £7799!
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.
