Calling all motorcycle enthusiasts! Yamaha is set to rev things up with the launch of the all-new FZ-X in India. This exciting 150cc machine blends retro charm with modern features, making it a compelling choice for riders seeking a stylish and practical everyday companion.

Aesthetics with a Retro Touch:

The FZ-X boasts a captivating design that pays homage to classic motorcycles. The round headlight with integrated DRLs and projector adds a touch of sophistication, while the clear windshield enhances wind protection. Borrowing inspiration from the XPulse 200, the FZ-X incorporates a front wing, further accentuating its rugged appeal. To complement its timeless design, the FZ-X is expected to be available in new color options, along with the existing Matte Copper, Blue Metallic, and Matte Black.

Safety First with Dual-Channel ABS:

One of the most significant upgrades in the FZ-X is the inclusion of a dual-channel Anti-Lock Braking System (ABS). This technology prevents wheel lockup during hard braking, offering increased safety and control, especially on slippery or uneven roads. This makes the FZ-X the first 150cc motorcycle in India to boast this advanced braking system.

Familiar Performance with a Modern Twist:

While the FZ-X retains the proven 149cc air-cooled single-cylinder engine from its predecessor, it embraces modern connectivity features. The Yamaha Y-Connect app allows riders to access various motorcycle information directly on their smartphones, including:

  • Missed call and message alerts: Stay connected while on the go without compromising safety.
  • Last parked location: Never lose track of your parked motorcycle again.
  • Fuel efficiency monitoring: Track your motorcycle’s fuel efficiency and optimize your riding style for better mileage.
  • Malfunction notifications: Get real-time alerts for any potential issues with your motorcycle, allowing for prompt attention.

Taking on the Competition:

The FZ-X is poised to compete fiercely in the 150cc segment, taking on established players like the Hero Xtreme 160R, TVS Apache RTR 160 4V, Honda X-Blade, Bajaj Pulsar NS160, and Suzuki Gixxer 155. Its combination of retro-inspired design, modern features like Bluetooth connectivity, and the first-in-segment dual-channel ABS makes it a strong contender for riders seeking a stylish, safe, and feature-rich motorcycle.

On-Road Price and Availability:

The current FZ-X starts at Rs. 1.35 lakh (ex-showroom) and is available in three colors. Yamaha is expected to launch a new, potentially feature-richer variant in the coming weeks, with a slightly higher price tag, possibly starting around Rs. 1.4 lakh (ex-showroom).
