Yamaha had initially launched the Yamaha FZ-16 and R15 and later brought the Yamaha YBR which failed to recreate the magic which FZ and R15 did, for the brand in the 110CC segment but losing no hopes the brand soon recovered and has launched the Yamaha SS125 and announced the launch of Yamaha SZ due in August.
The down the line offering from Yamaha comprise of:
- Yamaha SZ 150
- Yamaha YBR 125
- New Refreshed Yamaha Fazer
Out of the three the SZ 150,sporting a 2-Valve 11BHP 1.04kgm torque unit, is the most significant as it will be only offering from Yamaha in the 150CC segment which will cost between Rs 55,000 to Rs 60,000, unlike the FZ-16 which is priced at over Rs 70,000 and its speculated that the bike will have sort alloy wheels and will have a longer wheelbase.
Joining over will be Yamaha YBR 125, with hopes to bring the YBR back in market and will compete with the Hero Honda Splendor and Bajaj Discover . It is also said that the new model of YBR will replace the YBR 110CC once it is launched.
Last but not the least the very dynamic Fazer will get an altogether refreshing makeover so as to be in the competition and we really hope these bikes do well and do not let the brand down.
