- Yamaha skipped updating the SZ RR Version 2.0 with ABS after 1 April deadline
- Will be sold until stocks last with the dealers
- Production of the bike has been stopped
Yamaha has pulled the plug on its 150cc commuter, the SZ RR Version 2.0 in India. The production of the bike has been ceased but it still exists on the company’s website and will continue to be seen until the stocks last with the dealers. The motorcycle was already expected to be discontinued as the manufacturer had skipped updating it with ABS even after the 1 April deadline, post which the government mandated the safety feature in motorcycles over 125cc.
Yamaha had launched the first version of the motorcycle, the SZ R, in 2010 in the country. Four years later, the Japanese bikemaker introduced the SZ RR Version 2.0 in 2014 which offered cosmetic and feature upgrades over the SZ R. While the motorcycle gained a good initial response from the buyers, the demand gradually fizzled down over the years owing to the entry of more potent rivals in the segment.
Powering the SZ RR V 2.0 is a 149cc, air-cooled, carbureted motor which produces 11.9bhp of power and 12.8Nm of peak torque. The engine comes mated to a five-speed constant mesh gearbox. Suspension duties on the SZ is handled by telescopic forks up front and dual shock absorbers at the rear. Braking is taken care of by disc brake at the front and drum brake at the rear. The kerb weight of the bike stands at 134kg.
