Yamaha FZ-X shares its underpinnings with the popular FZ-S but sports neo-retro design cues. With a starting price of Rs 1.17 lakh, the FZ-X sits above the naked FZ-S. Yamaha has also showcased an updated version of the Fascino 125.
India Yamaha Motor has expanded its product portfolio with the addition of the new FZ-X. The FZ-X has been launched in two variants – with and without the Yamaha Motorcycle Connect, which are priced at Rs 1,16,800 and Rs 1,19,800, respectively. Bookings for the neo-retro offering has commenced already, and deliveries are expected to commence this month. The first 200 customers of the FZ-X will get an exclusive Yamaha-branded G-Shock.
The FZ-X gets a neo-retro design inspired by the XSR. At the front, it has been fitted with a circular LED projector headlamp with a LED DRL ring. Along the sides, the FZ-X gets brushed aluminium brackets, a chunky-looking fuel tank, and an all-black exhaust. The FZ-X gets a two-level seat and a tall handlebar for an upright riding position. The FZ-X comes with an all-digital instrument cluster.
Powering the FZ-X is the same engine that does duty on the FZ-S – a 149cc air-cooled single-cylinder motor, which pushes out 12.2bhp and 13.6Nm. This engine comes paired with a 5-speed transmission. Just like the FZ, the FZ-X will also get telescopic forks at the front and a monoshock at the rear. The stopping power comes from disc brakes at both ends, which are assisted by a single-channel ABS.
Along with the FZ-X, Yamaha has also showcased the 2021 Fascino 125 with some additional features. Expected to be launched in a few weeks’ time, the Fascino 125 will now get start-stop technology. Yamaha will also bring in the 2021 Ray-ZR and will, possibly, launch updated iterations of five other products.
