Yamaha has launched a new special edition version of its popular FZ-S and Fazer motorcycles. The new bikes will be available in a special “Battle Green” shade, a combination of matte back and matte dark green with yellow graphics. No mechanical changes have been made. The bikes are powered by an air-cooled 153cc single cylinder engine outputting 13.8 bhp and 13.6 Nm torque. The Special Edition FZ-S is now available for sale at Rs 74,382 (ex-showroom, Delhi), while the Special Edition Fazer is priced at Rs 79,485 (ex-showroom, Delhi).
Launched in 2008, the FZ series, comprising of the FZ16, the FZ-S and the Fazer, has been one of the most popular bikes in the premium 150cc segment, attracting buyers from all age groups with its macho styling cues, sporty dynamics and the wide 140-section rear tire, which was its main USP at the time of its launch. Although it faces stiff competition from the likes of KTM and Honda, Yamaha remains non-committal in the performance bike segment, choosing to refresh existing products rather than launch new ones.
