Yamaha has launched the updated BS-VI version of the FZ Fi and the FZS Fi today. The BS-VI FZ Fi is priced at ₹99,200 while the BS-VI FZS Fi is priced at ₹101,200. These now become the first BS-VI motorcycles from Yamaha to be launched in India.
All colour models of both FZ-FI (149 cc) and FZS-FI (149 cc) will be available in the BS VI line up. Additionally, FZS-FI (149 cc) will have two new colours – Darknight and Metallic Red. The company will further announce the launch of other BS VI compliant line ups in coming time.
Inheriting FZ’s legacy and signature styling, the new FZ-FI and FZS-FI comes with a Blue Core concept driven 149 cc engine with a compression ratio of 9.6:1 and delivering a maximum 12.4 PS power @ 7,250 rpm and 13.6 N.m torque @ 5,500 rpm. The new FZ-FI and FZS-FI BS VI version will feature single channel ABS in the front wheel and front & rear disc brakes along with negative LCD instrument cluster and a single piece two level seat.
During the occasion, Mr. Motofumi Shitara, Chairman, Yamaha Motor India Group of companies said, “Our commitment towards customers in India is underlined in exciting products and experiences by The Call of the Blue that stimulates a stylish motorcycling culture. As Yamaha reveals from its new product line up, the BS VI compliant FZ motorcycles will be available across Yamaha showrooms from November, 2019. FZ is an iconic brand and many motorcyclists have been brought up well from its cradle. This popularity served more concern to the company while planning for its BS VI variant. Yamaha strived for optimum cost control and achieved to peg it around 2.5% higher, only to let FZ’s excitement stay unrestrained in India. The new BS VI models in 150 cc is also expected to yield Yamaha’s strong presence in the deluxe class 2W category.”
