Question Yamaha FZ8, "separate cylinder block" or "cylinders bored in crankcase"?

Does anyone now if the Yamaha FZ8 has a separate cylinder block, or if the cylinder bank is part of the upper crankcase half, like in FZ09/MT09?
The trend is definitely going towards the "one piece design", with cylinders bored (and then plated) directly in the crankcase. But with the FZ8 partially coming from a 15 year old R1 design... ?

Based on 07 r1, so cylinders are separate from crank.

Thanks - brilliant picture!


By the way, it is a shame that they do not paint even TWO of all those surfaces in hte same color and texture...
