Yamaha FZ-X India May Launch On June 18
The Yamaha FZ-X is finally poised for debut after a long trail of patent applications, spy photos, and leaked photos. The Japanese company extended a media invitation for 18 June, and though it did not expressly say the motorcycle it was intended for, the FZ-X appears to be currently the most likely to be.
The bike would share its 149 cc single-cylinder engine in the FZ line with the same power supply of 12.4hp at 7.250rpm, as verified by secret government records. At 13.3Nm, we expected the torque to stay the same. The same paper also shows that the wheelbases of the FZ-X are identical with the FZ standard at 1.330mm. This indicates strongly that the chassis and cycle pieces are carried over also, hence expect a one-down tube frame mounted on a mono-shock and a telescopic fork. Recent cyclist spy images reveal that 17-inch alloy wheels are also available.
The principal distinction will be the design of the FZ-X. Yamaha’s approach is a neo-retro with a classic look with a current feel. The FZ’s road fighter face is replaced with a circular headlamp from the old School, and fork guitars and little swell protection make the bike seem scrambler too. In other words, the bike has a touch of the cruiser, with a large fuel tank slowly reaching the driver’s seat. Apparently high guiding and more forward-setting strokes should lead to a very upright riding position and make FZ-X significantly more comfortable than the bike on which it is built.
Sincerely since the improvements are aesthetic, the Yamaha FZ-X will not be as pricey as the FZ or FZS versions. A price tag of about Rs 1.15 lakh may be expected to cost around Rs 6,000 more than the FZS-Fi and Rs 11,000 more than the FZ-Fi.
