Not much is known about the upcoming Yamaha FZ 200cc motorcycle in terms of specifications. While some are speculating it will receive a 200cc engine, other suggest it could be a 250cc mill. This 250cc engine could be closely related to the one that powers the FZ 250 sold in Brazil. The test bike features disc brakes on both ends. The rear gets a monoshock suspension and the front gets standard telescopic forks. Other details are unavailable as yet.
The 250 cc engine that powers the brazil-spec Fazer 250 puts out 20.7 PS of max power and a peak torque of 20.5 Nm. It is highly likely that the upcoming bike from Yamaha will get this engine as a 250 cc model will help plug the gap between the R15 and the R3.
Yamaha FZ 200cc Bike Design
The design of the upcoming bike seems like a mix between the MT-03 and M-Slaz. While the rear is identical to the MT-03, the front end is similar in design to the M-Slaz or M-15. The headlamps feature LED lighting, but are slightly different in profile in comparison to the M-Slaz’ headlamp. The teaser image above shows the upcoming bike’s headlamp unit. Other noticeable features include
- Muscular fuel tank extensions
- LED tail lamps
- Split grab rail
- 10 spoke black alloy wheels
