Yamaha has launched the FZ-X in the Indian market. The neo-retro motorcycle sits above the FZ FI in the Yamaha lineup and is offered in two variants: with and without Bluetooth connectivity. The FZ-X without Bluetooth is priced at Rs 1,16,800. Meanwhile, the FZ-X with Bluetooth variant is priced at Rs 1,19,800. Above mentioned prices are ex-showroom (Delhi). To know more about the new FZ-X, let's take a look at the detailed image gallery of the same.
The Yamaha FZ-X gets a neo-retro design. It comes with features like a circular headlamp, underbelly pan, FZ-X badge on its fuel tank, a single-piece seat, tyre hugger, a rectangularish taillight and a rear grab handle.
It further gets features like LED headlamp, daytime running LED light, LED taillight, negative LCD instrument cluster, power socket and side stand engine cut off.
The FZ-X Bluetooth variant comes with a communication control unit that is compatible with the Y-Connect app. This app helps the rider to check information like vehicle maintenance recommendation, last parking location of the bike, fuel consumption and malfunction information. It also has a Revs Dashboard on offer which displays data such as degree of throttle opening, rate of acceleration and an eco-friendly riding indicator on the smartphone.
The neo-retro motorcycle is powered by the same 149cc single-cylinder air-cooled engine that does duty on the FZ FI and churns out 12.23bhp at 7,250rpm and 13.3Nm at 5,500rpm. This power is transmitted using a five-speed gearbox.
The mechanicals on this motorcycle are the ones that we have already seen on the FZ FI. The suspension duty is handled by telescopic forks at the front and a monoshock at the rear. Meanwhile, for braking, it employs a disc on both ends assisted by a single-channel ABS.
The motorcycle runs on 17-inch wheels. The front wheel is wrapped with a tyre having 100mm width. Meanwhile, the rear wheel is wrapped with a tyre having 140mm of width.
The FZ-X will be available at the dealerships by the end of this month and will be offered in three colour options: Metallic Blue, Matt Copper and Matt Black.
