BS6-compliant Yamaha FZ-Fi And FZ-S Fi Version 3.0 Specs Leaked
Thanks to stringent emissions norms, the FZ Fi V3.0 now makes 0.8PS less power than before
- Recently, Yamaha increased the prices of a couple of its motorcycles.
- The costs are likely to go up further by 10% to 15% with the launch of the BS6-compliant models.
- Expect the 2020 FZ-Fi to carry forward the same mechanicals from the current-gen bike.
Yamaha had earlier announced that it would begin manufacturing BS6-compliant bikes and scooters by November and December 2019 respectively. As expected, the bike maker has commenced testing its more eco-friendly models, starting with the Yamaha Fascino. The company also has filed its official documents for the BS6-compliant 2020 Yamaha R15 V3.0. Now, documents of the updated FZ-Fi and FZ-S Fi have been leaked online, which reveal its engine specifications.
The engine may now be easier on the environment, but it loses out on performance. To put things into perspective, the FZ’s updated 149cc, single-cylinder engine has been tuned to produce 12.4PS slightly lower down the rev-range at 7250rpm. That’s down from 13.2PS at 8000rpm on the current-gen model. Torque figures are likely to remain unchanged.
It’s highly unlikely that the BS6-compliant FZ Fi V3.0 will see any mechanical changes. Essentially, it would employ the same telescopic fork and monoshock for its suspension setup. The bike would be anchored by disc brakes at both ends, paired with single-channel ABS. There’s no change in dimensions either.
According to Yamaha, the updates would garner a price hike of around 10 to 15 per cent over and above the most recent price revision. The company also increased the prices of certain models back in July to compensate for the price difference between the old and new models. At the moment, the Yamaha FZ-Fi and FZ-S Fi are priced at Rs Rs 96,680 and Rs 98,680 respectively. So, we can expect the prices to go a little over Rs 1.1 lakh (ex-showroom).
