Yamaha FZ and FZ-S’ BS 6-compliant models have been launched in India at ₹99,200 and ₹1.03 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi), respectively. The company said that the FZ-F1 will be available with a choice between two colour options, namely, Metallic Black and Racing Blue.
Whereas the Yamaha FZ-SFI will be offered with six colour options, including two new options: Dark night (new); Metallic Red (new); Dark Matt Blue; Matt Black; Gray; and Cyan Blue.
Motofumi Shitara, chairman, Yamaha Motor India Group of companies, said, “Our commitment towards customers in India is underlined in exciting products and experiences by The Call of the Blue that stimulates a stylish motorcycling culture. As Yamaha reveals from its new product line up, the BS VI compliant FZ motorcycles will be available across Yamaha showrooms from November, 2019.
FZ is an iconic brand and many motorcyclists have been brought up well from its cradle. This popularity served more concern to the company while planning for its BS VI variant. Yamaha strived for optimum cost control and achieved to peg it around 2.5% higher, only to let FZ’s excitement stay unrestrained in India. The new BS VI models in 150 cc is also expected to yield Yamaha’s strong presence in the deluxe class 2W category.”
Both, the new Yamaha FZ-FI and FZ-SFI come powered by an upgraded 149 cc engine that belts out a maximum 12 bhp of power at 7,250 rpm and a peak torque of 13.6 Nm at 5,500 rpm. For braking, the two bikes come equipped with front and rear disc brakes as well as single channel ABS in the front wheel.
