Yamaha has launched the FZ Version 3.0 in the country at a starting price of Rs 95,000 for the FZ-Fi ABS and Rs 97,000 for the FZS-Fi ABS (ex-showroom Delhi). The bike gets a new redesigned front portion with LED headlamp. The tank extensions are more muscular and are complemented by a sporty-looking engine cowl. At the rear, the body panels look the same as the one in Version 2.0. The motorcycle is powered by a 149cc single-cylinder air-cooled, fuel-injected engine which produces 13.2PS and 12.8Nm, working alongside a 5-speed transmission.
Suspension bits include telescopic front forks and a monoshock at the rear. The bike is anchored by front and a rear disc, with single-channel ABS as standard. Primary rivals for the Yamaha FZ Version 3.0 include Bajaj Pulsar NS 160, TVS Apache RTR 160 4V, Suzuki Gixxer, and Honda CB Hornet 160R range.
FZ V3 Overview
The third-generation Yamaha FZ-Fi gets a completely new bodywork and now has a premium as well as aggressive design. It gets a new headlamp, side panel, beefier tank extensions, engine cowl, tail section and exhaust. Overall, the FZ-Fi V3.0 has the same design language as the 250cc Yamaha FZ25. Like its predecessor, the FZ has two models on offer: the FZ-Fi and a more premium FZ-S. The bike is available in two colours: Metric Black and Racing Blue. In terms of features, the bike now gets an LED headlamp and a new LCD instrument console that also shows a fuel range indicator. Yamaha has worked to make the riding position more upright and comfortable. The handlebar is 22mm taller for that upright stance while the subframe is flatter for better pillion comfort. Its 149cc air-cooled and fuel injected single-cylinder motor makes the same power and torque but is tuned for better low-end performance. The new FZ-Fi competes with the TVS Apache RTR 160 4V (Fi – Rs 92,146 / Carb – Rs 86,145), Bajaj Pulsar NS 160 (Rs 85,690), Suzuki Gixxer (Rs 87,871) and the Honda CB Hornet 160R (Std – Rs 91,682 / Deluxe – Rs 94,182; all prices ex-showroom Delhi)
