“When what you are deeply passionate about, what you can be best in the world at and what drives your economic engine come together, not only does your work move toward greatness, but so does your life. For, in the end, it is impossible to have a great life unless it is a meaningful life. And it is very difficult to have a meaningful life without meaningful work. Perhaps, then, you might gain that rare tranquility that comes from knowing that you’ve had a hand in creating something of intrinsic excellence that makes a contribution. Indeed, you might even gain that deepest of all satisfactions: knowing that your short time here on this earth has been well spent, and that it mattered.”

Yamaha drops Fazer8, FZ1 and XJ6 from UK range

YAMAHA has dropped the Fazer8FZ1 and XJ6 from its UK line-up.
A Yamaha source told Visordown the decision was taken due to dwindling sales of the models.
The Fazer8, FZ1 and naked XJ6 are no longer listed on Yamaha’s UK website and the bikes are no longer available from dealers.
The half-faired XJ6 Diversion is 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.
The dwindling sales may be partly due to the success of Yamaha's MT range, especially where there is some overlap between the niches filled by the machines, with the Fazer8 and MT-09 Tracer, for example, both catering for sports-touring needs.
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.
