Yamaha to continue with an 800cc engine in 2012

Executive Officer of Yamaha Motor Co. Ltd, Masao Furusawa, declared in Motorcycle News that the factory would like to continue with 800cc engines in 2012, when the new Technical Regulations will permit a maximum engine capacity of 1000cc. The reason is cost, but Furusawa also says: “It depends on the competition. If our competitors make a better engine than us then we have to change.”
