2016 Yamaha Fazer 8
In the past, Yamaha has had wonderful semi-faired sport tourers under the ‘Fazer’ nameplate, which proved to be a perfect balance between the aggressive of Yamaha’s true-blue supersports and the very practical naked roadsters termed under the brand ‘FZ’. The Fazers have not only been imparting big bike stance of the YZF supersports, but also have proved their everyday usability which the FZs were famous for. In the Indian market too, it was the 150cc Fazer based on the FZ 16, which did carry forward the trend of macho looking full sized motorcycles in the sub-1 lakh category of motorcycles.
However, with the advent of the new breed of motorcycles under the ‘MT’ and ‘Tracer’ ranges, the FZs and Fazers are soon going to be things of the past. However, Yamaha believes that there is still enough mettle available in the Fazer range, due to the fact that there are still many enthusiasts who believe that the macho looking stance and character of the Fazers are entirely different to that of the ‘Tracer’ motorcycles, the new generation semi-faired sport tourers from Yamaha.
In the range of Fazers from Yamaha, the Fazer 8 has always proved to be the best of both the worlds of the 1000cc liter class FZ1 Fazer, and the middleweight 600cc Diversion. In this write up, we take a look on one of the finest middleweight sport tourers from Yamaha ever, the Fazer 8.Read the full 2016 Yamaha Fazer 8 review
