After previously releasing teaser photos of the naked FZ8 and its semi-faired sibling Fazer8, Yamaha has now completely unveiled the new middleweights destined to replace their FZ6 and provided detailed photos and full specs (see below). Both machines come with ABS as optional and are powered by liquid cooled, 799 cc parallel 4-cylinder engine that Yamaha says is "all new" and produces 106 horsepower. 

No word yet on if or when we'll see either of these 2011 Yamaha models in Canada, but we'll keep you posted.
