New Yamaha FZ X vs Yamaha XSR 155: What’s Different?

Yamaha recently launched the FZ-X in India. However, the Indian masses were expecting the manufacturer to introduce the XSR 155 instead. To clarify your answers on what’s different between the FZ-X and XSR 155, we list down all specs and details and compare the two motorcycles.


Yamaha FZ X vs Yamaha XSR 155

The Yamaha XSR 155 is a neo-retro styled motorcycle that borrows its styling from the bigger XSR 700 and XSR 900 that are also sold in international markets. So it gets a round headlamp with full-LED lighting as well as a round LED tail lamp. In between these two, the XSR 155 sports a simple-looking fuel tank that hints at its classic appeal and a tuck and roll design for the seat to complete the look. All of it is based on the MT-15’s Deltabox frame.

On the other hand, the Yamaha FZ-X is built on the underpinnings of the FZ-S but borrows its design inspiration from the XSR 155. So the design of the seat, headlamp unit with aluminum brackets, and tank is somewhat similar. However, the FZ-X gets a different design for the tail lamp and a simple-looking grab rail, that in our opinion, looks dated.

Let’s start with the FZ-X here. It uses the same frame and engine as the FZ-S and hence, is powered by a 149cc, single-cylinder, two-valve engine with fuel injection and air-cooling. This mill churns out 12.2bhp and 13.3Nm and comes mated to a five-speed gearbox.

In comparison, the XSR 155 is powered by a 155cc, single-cylinder, liquid-cooled engine that is also used in the MT-15 and produces 18.7bhp and 14.7Nm. The motor is mated to a six-speed gearbox with a slipper clutch and uses the famed VVA (Variable Valve Actuation) technology.

In terms of the list of features, the Yamaha FZ-X is a step ahead of the XSR 155. While both get an LED headlamp and tail lamp and an LCD instrument cluster, the FZ-X’s display also comes with Bluetooth connectivity as an option. It also gets a USB charger fitted under the display- something which the XSR misses out on. Nevertheless, the XSR 155 is offered with dual-channel ABS whereas the FZ-X comes with a single-channel ABS.

Now, since the FZ-X draws inspiration from the XSR 155, it also rides on block-pattern tyres. They also get a monoshock at the rear and discs for the front and rear, but the similarities end there. The XSR 155 is equipped with premium upside-down forks as compared to the telescopic forks used on the FZ-X.

Yamaha has priced the FZ-X from Rs 1.17 lakh for the standard version and Rs 1.20 lakh for the Bluetooth model. And while the XSR 155 isn’t available in India yet, if it had been launched here, the motorcycle would have been priced over the MT-15 which retails at Rs 1.40 lakh. (ex-showroom)
