Following Hero MotoCorp, now India Yamaha Motor (IYM) has introduced BS VI variants — the all new FZ-FI (149 cc) and FZ-SFI(149 cc). The company reiterates its commitment to offer excitement through its products and related experiences with its first launch of BS VI compliant FZs. All colour models of both FZ-FI (149 cc) and FZ-SFI(149 cc) will be available in the BS VI line up. Additionally, FZ-SFI(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 FZ-SFIcomes 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 r/min and 13.6 N.m torque @ 5,500 r/min. The new FZ-FI and FZ-SFIBS 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.
Speaking on the occasion, 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.”
