The FZ-S Version 2.0 is the second generation of the FZ series commuter motorcycle, the FZ16 being the original. Design-wise, the model is extremely similar to the standard FZ V 2.0 which gets a two piece seat, revised bikini faring, and shrouds beneath the fuel tank.
The FZ-S is powered by an air-cooled, fuel injected 149cc single-cylinder engine. The engine produces 13bhp of power and 12.8Nm of torque. The company has recently introduced a rear disc brake as an option for the FZ-S, at a premium of Rs 4000 over the variants with a rear drum brake.
The new FZ-S is available in matte green, white, grey, black, dark blue and cyan. It has a new paint scheme called ‘The Dark Night’ which is essentially an all-matte black paint scheme with chrome accents. It takes on the Bajaj Pulsar NS160, Honda CB Hornet 160R, Honda XBlade and the Suzuki Gixxer. The Yamaha FZ-S 2.0 is priced at Rs 87,000 onward (ex-showroom Delhi).
