BS6 Yamaha FZ 150 and BS6 FZS 150cc Launched today in India, thus marking the first BS VI variant rollout from the company in India. BS6 Yamaha FZ 150 and BS6 FZS 150cc Launched will be available in the BS VI line up that will soon expand. ABS6 FZS 150cc will have two new colours – Darknight and Metallic Red. The company will further announce the launch of other BS VI compliant line ups in coming time.
BS6 Yamaha FZ 150 and BS6 FZS 150cc comes with a Blue Core concept driven by a 149 cc engine with a compression ratio of 9.6:1 and delivering a maximum 12.4 PS power @ 7,250 r/min and 13.6 N.m torque @ 5,500 r/min. The horsepower is down by a full one PS. The new FZ-FI and FZS-FI BS VI version will feature single channel ABS in the front wheel and front & rear disc brakes along with negative LCD instrument cluster and a single piece two level seat.
Mr. Motofumi Shitara, Chairman, Yamaha Motor India Group of companies said, “Our commitment towards customers in India is underlined in exciting products and experiences by The Call of the Blue that stimulates a stylish motorcycling culture. As Yamaha reveals from its new product line up, the BS VI compliant FZ motorcycles will be available across Yamaha showrooms from November, 2019. FZ is an iconic brand and many motorcyclists have been brought up well from its cradle. This popularity served more concern to the company while planning for its BS VI variant. Yamaha strived for optimum cost control and achieved to peg it around 2.5% higher, only to let FZ’s excitement stay unrestrained in India. The new BS VI models in 150 cc is also expected to yield Yamaha’s strong presence in the deluxe class 2W category.”
BS6 Yamaha FZ 150 and BS6 FZS 150cc with ABS was introduced in India on January 2019. The new models were launched on the backdrop of The Call of the Blue, the new brand campaign launched by Yamaha in 2018. The company is looking forward to stimulate more excitement and sportiness in the Indian two wheeler market by its new initiatives like The Call of the Blue that holds the promise of energizing the passion of motorcycling in India as per the global standards.
However, with the horsepower in this class dropping to new low’s with version that came, it will be interesting to see how the market takes a commuter motorcycle in the aesthetic form of a sporty motorcycle. We hope Yamaha has plans for a 15-16 PS 150-160cc on the cards to win the enthusiasts hearts back.
