With a razor sharp design, a serious dose of aggressivity and a strong engine, the Yamaha FZ8 WGP looks eager to burn some rubber on the race track.
This angry looking naked was developed using technology borrowed from the advanced YZF-R supersport model. Power comes from a high-tech 779cc engine which delivers an earth shaking torque rated at 8.4 kg-m available at its peak at 8,000 rpm. The engine is mounted on a lightweight Deltabox frame specially developed to respect the supersport standards.
As far as ergonomics go, the Yamaha FZ8 WGP features specially-designed footrest/handlebar/seat layout which offers a pretty comfortable and upright riding position. Moreover the 17 litre fuel tank features a slim rear section further improving the rider’s comfort. The bike is painted in Yamaha’s latest WGP 50th Anniversary colour scheme – white red and black.
