- Yamaha FZ X to feature different bodywork
- To get the same engine as FZ V3
- Is likely to be launched by September
Yamaha is working on a new motorcycle called the FZ X that is expected to be launched in India by September 2021. While the motorcycle has been spied earlier, the new spy shots reveal more details about the upcoming FZ X.
To begin with, the Yamaha FZ X is likely to come with a circular headlamp fitted with full-LED lighting. It is fitted using aluminum brackets on either side. And while the tail lamp is expected to be LED, the turn signals come with conventional lighting.
The spy image also reveals that the Yamaha FZ X will sport different bodywork that includes a slightly more conventionally shaped fuel tank with a chunky strip of bodywork running down the middle, unlike the FZ V3 that features a muscular-looking unit. The new motorcycle also gets a boomerang-shaped radiator guard different from the one on the FZ V3 that gives the latter a hunkered-down look.
We can also see that the FZ X will come with fork gaiters on the telescopic forks as well as dual-purpose tyres. As for the engine, the specifications were leaked a few days ago and it suggests that the FZ X will come with the same 149cc, air-cooled engine that produces 12.2bhp at 7,500rpm. While the leaked document did not mention torque figures, it is likely to remain the same at 13.6Nm.
Now, the FZ X also has slightly different dimensions as compared to the FZ V3. It is 35mm taller, 5mm narrower in width and is 30mm longer. However, the wheelbase remains the same at 1330mm. The list of features on the upcoming FZ X could include a single-channel ABS and a digital instrument cluster similar to the FZ V3.
We can expect the Yamaha FZ X to be priced at a slight premium over the FZ-S V3 that costs Rs 1.08 lakh for the standard version.
