A video of the next-gen Yamaha FZ-S FI has surfaced online. A couple of weeks back, a spy shot of the bike appeared online. It will get some feature upgrades, ABS and BS-VI compliant engine.
2019 Yamaha FZ-S FI video shows the next-gen FZ testing with camouflage. In order to comply with the upcoming emission norms and safety regulations, Yamaha might have started testing the new FZ.
We expect the naked bike to come equipped with ABS and BS-6 engine. Reports say that it might get full LED lamps and a new digital instrument cluster too.
Based on the video and the earlier spy shot, it seems like the next-gen gets some revisions to the body. Looks like it gets more muscular in this edition.
The next-gen Yamaha FZ-S FI follows the typical FZ series silhouette. The beefier tank and the sharp muscle creases indicate that it could borrow some styling cues from the FZ25. The more premium FZ25 sports a sharp design with much more sportier looks than the current FZ.
Based on the test mules, we say that the next-gen Yamaha FZ-S FI will reportedly get full LED lamps, a digital instrument cluster and LED tail lights. It will introduce a single-channel ABS setup paired up with front and rear disc brakes. Reports say that it might sport clip-on handlebars in the next-gen.
Revisions to the bodywork include a beefier fuel tank, rear tyre hugger, a bigger heat shield on the exhaust and a single seat. The next-gen Yamaha FZ-S FI continues with the conventional telescopic forks and the same set of alloy wheels, diamond frame chassis, turn indicators and fully digital instrument cluster.
The engines on the next-gen FZ-S will continue to be the same set. It will run on the same 149cc air-cooled SOHC engine tuned to meet BS-VI. The engine puts out 13 BHP and 12.8 Nm of peak torque. The engine pairs up with a 5-speed gearbox with a wet multi-plate clutch. For better fuel efficiency and performance, the bike uses a Fuel Injection system.
As of now, the Yamaha FZ-S FI is one of the popular bikes in its segment and is also the best selling Yamaha product. The naked bike competes with the likes of Suzuki Gixxer, Honda CB Hornet 160R, Bajaj Pulsar NS160, and TVS Apache RTR 160 4V. Amongst its rivals, only Gixxer and Hornet get optional ABS setup.
The Yamaha FZ-S FI is priced at Rs 87,542 (ex-showroom Delhi). With the inclusion of ABS, the prices can increase by Rs 5000 or so.
