Yamaha India Launched a Vintage Edition for FZS-FI. Will it Pave the Way to Nepal?
The new Yamaha FZS FI vintage edition has been introduced in India via Yamaha Motor with a price tag of INR 1.09 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi). This iconic motorcycle is equipped with a Bluetooth connectivity application ‘Yamaha Motorcycle Connect X’ and listed to be the top variant in the FZS-FI V3 line-up. It is yet not confirmed that the vintage edition will make its way to Nepal. However, expectations are high from MAW Enterprises Pvt. Ltd., an authorized distributor of Yamaha motorcycles in Nepal to make it possible for the expected and excited buyer.
So, what makes the new vintage edition unique among regular models of Yamaha FZS? Well, it’s all about the exterior this motorcycle carries.
The FZS-FI sports vintage graphics and brand new sleek leather finish single piece two-level seat. A new LED headlamp, a newly designed muffler protector, and a lower engine fairing add the vintage essence to the motorcycle. Nevertheless, the most significant upgrade of this model remains to be the addition of the Bluetooth connectivity application ‘Yamaha Motorcycle Connect X’ designed to notify information such as, locate my bike, riding history, e-lock, parking record answer back, and hazard notifications.
Except for the new look and the Bluetooth connectivity application, the motorcycles continue to carry the same mechanicals. More specifically, 149 cc SOHC, the two-valve, single-cylinder fuel-injected engine to generate a maximum power output of 12 bhp at 7,250 rpm along with a peak torque of 13.6 Nm at 5,500rpm. The braking system includes disc brakes at both ends and single-channel ABS comes as standard. “We are committed to offer better motorcycling experiences to the customers in India. Today we have introduced the Vintage edition in our FZS-FI variant with smart features like Bluetooth connectivity.” Motofumi Shitara, Chairman, Yamaha Motor India Group of companies, said, “We will continue to bring more such excitement for the biking enthusiasts in future, eventually as we rev up the entire line up of our motorcycles.”
