The FZ series from Yamaha has been around in India since 2008. It is one of the most popular motorcycles in the premium 150cc segment, with its muscular looks and performance to match. The bike was such a big hit in the Indian market that Yamaha didn’t feel the need to introduce any upgrades for the FZ-series bikes, until now, when the segment is chock-a-block with contenders that threaten the FZ’s dominance.

 

Enter the 2014 Yamaha FZ-Fi Version 2.0, the most comprehensive upgrade the FZ has received since it was first launched in India. The new FZ comes abound with big changes both visual and mechanical. At first glance, you’ll notice that the bike looks very similar to the FZ-S concept showcased at the 2014 Auto Expo in New Delhi earlier this year. It sports a new headlamp, a redesigned fuel tank, tail section, side shrouds and panels. To sum up the styling, the new FZ-Fi looks very appealing. The bike also gets split seats, a chunky alloy grab rail, a new exhaust end can and a cool new all-digital speedo console as well.

On the mechanical front, out goes the torquey 153cc single-cylinder engine, and in its place comes a new 149cc fuel-injected unit. Surprisingly, the new engine produces lesser power and torque, although this should be somewhat offset by the 3 kg reduction in weight and the fuel-injection system’s throttle response. Yamaha claims that the new motor is 14% more efficient than before, thanks to their new Blue Core technology, which comprises of numerous improvements and refinements of the engine internals, which allows for better combustion efficiency and in turn, a higher mileage, without drastically affecting performance. The chassis, suspension and brakes remain the same as the current model.

 

The 2014 Yamaha FZ-Fi V2.0 is priced at Rs 76,250 (ex-showroom, Delhi), whereas the new FZ-S Fi V2.0 is priced at Rs 78,250 (ex-showroom, Delhi). You can book your new FZ today at your nearest Yamaha showroom, with deliveries scheduled to commence by the first week of July.
