So as some of you are aware, I'm in the process of possibly ditching my old busted R6 for something new. With the discounts that Yamaha has right now on the current 2012/13 FZ8, I'm leaning towards it right now. In particular, the 2012 Anniversary scheme:
That's the 2012 model, which is the same $8k price as the black 2013. I'm not too fond of the all black layout myself:
The other option I'm considering is waiting for the FZ09 to come out, though it's $1k more and a bit smaller a with less aggressive riding position.
