Combining sports performance and aggressive naked styling with all day riding comfort, the FZ8 is a special breed of motorcycle. The word practical pops to mind, but don't confuse practical with dull. Most riders can only afford one machine and the FZ8 is worth a serious look. It delivers solid performance from its 779cc line-4 engine and excellent handling thanks to the FZ1 inspired twin spar aluminum frame. And when it comes to comfort?

No one else offers you the superior engineering, style and performance you enjoy with your Yamaha. And no one else stands behind its product the way Yamaha does - with the industry's best warranty coverage and best extended warranty plan: Yamaha Protection Plus.
Yamaha Protection Plus gives you the option to extend your factory warranty by 12, 24, 36, or 48 months, depending on your product and requirements, some products may not be eligible for YPP. Refer to the YPP price list for unit eligibility. Combine that with Yamaha's unsurpassed reputation for reliability, and you've got the peace of mind you deserve.
While other plans can confuse you with deductibles, unexpected limits on mileage, parts coverage and claim paperwork hassles, our factory-backed Yamaha Protection Plus gives you bullet-proof protection from the unexpected. And it's as easy to understand and use as your Yamaha factory warranty.
Yamaha Protection Plus will be there, whether your repair expense is a few dollars or a few thousand.
Under the Yamaha Protection Plus program, Yamaha picks up the entire cost of parts and labour to repair every applicable mechanical defect.
Yamaha's computerized warranty system is updated as soon as you buy coverage, so Yamaha Protection Plus takes over automatically -- and immediately -- when your factory warranty expires. You can even get Yamaha Protection Plus coverage on many pre-owned Yamaha models.
Your Yamaha Protection Plus warranty is transferable, increasing the value of your Yamaha if you decide to sell or trade it in.
Since we already know your Yamaha, you don't have to fill out claim forms. Your Yamaha Protection Plus coverage information is available to every authorized Yamaha dealer nationwide.
You can purchase years of our Yamaha Protection Plus coverage for a fraction of what a single major repair could cost you. We offer you the option to use the Yamaha Power Finance or loan Credit Card Program to purchase coverage. Just talk to your Yamaha dealer to discuss your options.
With Yamaha Protection Plus, Yamaha is ready to step in to make any needed repairs (excluding those repairs due to normal wear or aging) using genuine parts and factory authorized service for the full duration of your coverage.
