Yamaha FZ-X Specifications
The FZ-X is based on Yamaha’s popular FZ-S FI/FZ-FI platform. So it will carry over the same engine as the streetfighter. Take a look at the detailed specifications leaked earlier.
Yamaha FZ-X Design
The Yamaha FZ-X looks eerily similar to the Yamaha XSR155. Clearest images of the motorcycle surfaced in April, presumably from a commercial shoot. You can check them out here.
Other than these articles, you can also take a look at our full analysis of what we know about the bike so far. Once launched, Yamaha will finally be able to compete in the fast-growing retro segment where Royal Enfield has a strong footing. However, with the Yamaha FZ-X’s smaller capacity engine and presumably lower price, the Japanese brand should be able to find its own niche in the 150cc segment. What do you think?
