Yamaha drops Fazer8 FZ1 and XJ models from UK range

Poor sales force Yamaha cull

Yamaha drops Fazer8 FZ1 and XJ models from UK range
Yamaha's Fazer8 is no longer available in the UK

YAMAHA has dropped the Fazer8, FZ1 and XJ from its UK line-up due to poor sales.

A spokesman from Yamaha told Visordown the decision was taken because ‘no-one is buying them.’

The Fazer8 and FZ1 are no longer listed on Yamaha’s UK website and the bikes are no longer available from dealers.

The XJ6 Diversion is also destined for the same fate, although residual dealer stock means it’s currently still listed as part of Yamaha’s UK range. So if you’re in the market for a new XJ6 Diversion, you’d better move quickly.

With the success of the MT range perhaps it’s unsurprising that the Fazer8 and FZ1 have had the chop.

Figures for the first half of 2015 revealed the firm’s net sales were up 65.1 billion yen to 821.1 billion yen, with the motorcycle division accounting for the lion’s share of that.

All three models that have been discontinued in the UK are still part of Yamaha’s European model lineup.
