Yamaha has launched the all-new FZ-X in India, priced from Rs 1.17 Lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi). But, how does it look in person? How are the ergonomics and build quality? And more importantly, how does it compare against its more established sibling, the FZS V3.0? Watch this video as Vikrant Singh answers all these questions.
What's more, Vikrant also gives his first impressions of the FZ-X, especially its design, ergonomics and build quality. We also tell you which one to buy between the Yamaha FZ-X and the Yamaha FZ-S. And, if you are wondering how does the FZ-X sounds, we also have the exhaust note somewhere in the video. So, don't miss it.
The Yamaha FZ-X is based on the same underpinnings as the FZ-S. So, essentially, it gets the same chassis, engine, suspension hardware, brakes and wheels. The only differences are the tyres, design and a few features here and there.
As far as specifications go, the Yamaha FZ-X is powered by a 149cc single-cylinder, fuel-injected motor that develops 12.2bhp and 13.3Nm. The motor is paired to a five-speed gearbox. From what we have seen in the Yamaha FZ-S, this engine should be reasonably peppy, and offer good low and mid-range grunt. It is also decently refined.
As mentioned earlier, the FZ-X is priced at Rs 1.17 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi), but that's for the base non-Bluetooth enabled variant. The top-spec model costs Rs 1.19 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi) and comes loaded with Bluetooth connectivity and Yamaha's Y-Connect App.
