Come on Yamaha Canada.......get with the program. We need this bike available here and now please.


So... they've had the 2011 FZ8 on their site for a few days now.. I fail to see how it's any different than the FZ6 and FZ1.. Three very similar bikes poaching sales from each other and 2 versions of the FZ 8 no less, naked and mini bikini fairing.

I'm ready to order an S10 if it is going to be available next year..

+1 GB on the overlap and poaching in the NEW Yamaha line. The cruiser market is waning and the Adventure bike market is what's moving fine with folks crossing over from cruisers. Also +1 on looking to buy an S10. Ready, willing, but, as yet, unable.

Of course, but it's like the same bike with a 600, 800 or 1000 engine.. Maybe in Europe where licensing regulations limit the size of the bike a new rider may ride makes the smaller bike attractive, but over here, there are no such restrictions.. so if I'm looking to get an FZ bike and I don't want the smaller engine, I'd go with the bigger one..

Can't you buy one in Mexico?

Any word on what was revealed in Kelowna?

I do not know what precisely you meant and what are your information sources but there is no such thing in Europe as engine size limitation for new riders.There is SOME countries that restrict max power of bike for newly licensed riders for 2 years, but that's not engine size - it is done by installing restrictor kit on any engine, then kit taken off. Germany is one of those countries. There is also allowance to ride up to 125 cc with car license in SOME countries. Belgium for example.

What makes smaller bikes attractive in some countries in Europe is weight and agility. Here is example. If you ride new Supertenere in Haute Alps in France every single rider on 600 cc motard will be overtaking great "adventure barge" on outside. Try it and you will see - every second road is more challenging than famous Deals Gap.

Sorry for sidetracking. Just tried to clarify matter.

I went by the Yamaha dealer near me with a printed brochure on the S10 from the UK site.. "oh very nice bike, that's like that bmw what's it called"... He says the Yamaha rep is coming to his shop tomorrow, so I left him with brochure so he can show it to the rep. He'll call me if there's any news.. I'm not holding my breath..

I hope something happens over there, and don't worry about the BMW comment, I get it a lot with the Strom.

I just politely point out that you can tell the difference by looking at the front.

If it looks like it has been punched in the face its a BMW That is about as detailed as you can get.

Anyway sounds like you should be in there edumacating your dealer!

Show him Metal Jockeys review and hi-lite the good bits with a very bright marker.

Cheers

Service

Hello,

Could one of you please shed some light on the service intervals for the ST.
My xt660z is serviced every 10000 Km and I know that the new Duccati MS 1200 is now at 15000 Km and I think this important in the long run even more so as the bikes get more complicated and one has to service them with a proper work shop to keep the 24 month guaranty in effect.

The UK has plenty of restrictions...but none on engine size when you get to those sort of sizes.
They are discontinuing the FZ6 and having the XJ6 as the 600cc middleweight 'street' bike then having the FZ8 and FZ1! Schimples!

Weel don't you worry, the tappets are of the small underside shim type, so checking and exchanging them to adjust valveclearence will be a once every 50.000 km job, and then adjustment isn't needed most of the times :-)

So the service intervals just are to change the fluids, and if you ever tooled around a Yamaha you would know how easy-peasy that is.

Getting rid of all those driveshaft horrors of singlesided hinged mayhem will also make a welcome change to keeping your change in your pocket :-)

My BMW driveshaft has been broken two times and is now in for its third exchange without failure, the long shaft of the S10 will keep the load on the cardanic couplings very low, and the bearings of the same are *exchangable* no need for new verry expesive driveshafts evere odd year :-)

Here a nice Vid of the S10 on TKC's (driver is mr. Brouwer)
