[UPDATE: Yamaha has launched the FZ-X in India. Check out our launch story for the price, specs and other details.]

  • The Yamaha FZ-X is a retro-style motorcycle based on the FZ-S Fi V3.
  • It’s powered by the same 149cc single-cylinder engine producing 12.4PS and 13.7Nm.
  • Features Yamaha XSR155-inspired styling.
  • Expected to command a premium of around Rs 10,000 over the FZ-S Fi V3.

Select Yamaha dealerships across India have started accepting unofficial bookings for the upcoming FZ-X for a token amount ranging between Rs 1,000 and Rs 10,000 depending on the dealership. The neo-retro styled motorcycle is slated to be launched on June 18 via a virtual event. It’s expected to carry a premium of around Rs 5,000 over the standard model priced at Rs 1.04 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi). 

The XSR155-inspired FZ-X is based on the FZ-S Fi V3. While it looks different, everything from the engine to the underpinnings is borrowed from the FZ series. Here’s what we know so far.

It will be powered by a 149cc single-cylinder air-cooled engine that makes 12.4PS and 13.7Nm, shockingly low for a 150cc bike. However, it is tuned to return fantastic fuel efficiency. 

 

Pegged as the most affordable neo-retro bike, the Yamaha FZ-X may open up new horizons for the company in the classic segment, a space dominated by Royal Enfield. However, given its price range, it will also rival the Honda X-Blade, Bajaj Pulsar NS160, and Hero Xtreme 160R.
