Yamaha FZ-X could be launched in India on June 18
Japanese automaker Yamaha has sent out invitations for a virtual launch event in India on June 18. The details about the event are still under the wraps but the company is expected to announce its all-new FZ-X bike. As for the highlights, the two-wheeler will have a retro look and shall run on a 149cc, air-cooled, single-cylinder engine. Here are more details.
The Yamaha FZ-X shall draw styling cues from the XSR 155, which went official in Indonesia last month. It will feature a teardrop-shaped fuel tank, a flat-type seat, aluminium-finished brackets, and a raised handlebar. The bike will also pack a rounded headlight and ride on blacked-out wheels. It will be up for grabs in at least three shades: orange, black, and blue.
Under the hood, the Yamaha FZ-X will reportedly be powered by a BS6-compliant 149cc, air-cooled, single-cylinder engine that will generate 12.2hp of maximum power. However, the gearbox information is unclear at the moment.
To ensure the safety of the rider, the Yamaha FZ-X will be equipped with disc brakes on both the front and rear wheels. For better handling, it may also offer single- or dual-channel ABS. Suspension duties on the motorcycle will be taken care of by telescopic forks on the front side and a mono-shock unit on the rear end.
Details related to the pricing and availability of the Yamaha FZ-X in India will be revealed at the time of launch. However, it should carry some premium over the FZ FI series, which starts at Rs. 1.08 lakh (ex-showroom).
