India Yamaha Motor (IYM) today launched new FZS-FI (149 cc) motorcycle which incorporates Yamaha’s Blue Core technology and improved braking system. Blue Core technology increases combustion efficiency, cooling efficiency and reduces power loss.
This motorcycle retains a 149 cc, air cooled, fuel injected, 4-stroke, SOHC, 2-valve, single cylinder engine but now offers 220 mm hydraulic single rear disc brake and 282 mm front brake, thus greatly improving stability and control. Adding to the aesthetics, the FZS-FI now has a sporty wheel design along with a completely new mirror design.
According to the company, “the all new FZS-FI motorcycle is a response to the needs and requirements of Yamaha’s customers, prioritising performance efficiency and a safe commute while remaining true to the Macho image. The “Triple Muscular Concept” (Muscular silhouette, Muscular Body parts and Muscular Chassis) was developed to inherit and strengthen this “Macho Image” while creating an added impression of lightness and sportiness to the final design. Other features like superb suspension for added comfort, advance midship muffler, skid-free split seat, multi-function instrument panel with Eco indicator have made FZS-FI a must-buy this season.”
Speaking on the launch, Mr. Roy Kurian, Senior Vice President, Sales and Marketing, Yamaha Motor India Sales Pvt. Ltd. said, “The legacy of Yamaha’s FZ series in India is all about the inheritance of a unique motorcycling passion. Immensely popular with Indian bikers all the way through almost 10 years from the day it was launched in India, and winning over a million hearts, it was crowned to become the ‘lord of the streets’ by the collective culture of the country’s motorcycling. While its best seller features like build and appearance, superior engine technology, fuel mileage and suspension are retained, the new additions will excite the present and new customers.”
Priced at Rs. 86,042, the FZS-FI is available in a vibrant ‘Armada Blue’ colour across all authorized Yamaha dealers in the country.
