The headlamp of the new Yamaha FZ-S V2.0 (top) is more angular than the old bike.

The new FZ-S is differentiated by means of an angular headlamp which offers more real estate for the accompanying body colored panel. The visor has also been redesigned to suit the new headlamp and is smaller than before. The new instrument console has a rectangular LED display unit which is larger than the previous unit.

The side of the Yamaha FZ-S V2.0 gets numerous new elements like tank scoops and smaller silencer.

In profile, the motorcycle is instantly recognizable yet incorporates plenty of upgrades. The color themes and body decals are new and so are the tank extensions. The centre panel is mildly revised and the tail section is completely reworked to include split seats, new grab rails and a license plate enclosure. The bulky silencer of the old bike has been replaced by a sleeker element, which gives it a sense of lightness.

    1. Incomplete without a disc brake….!!
    2.Rest, i don’t care….!!
    3.FI is better for sure….!!
    4.Is there any protection for “fuel gauge float” from fuel dispenser gun…??
    5.Chain’s life is limited and expensive..!!
    6.What about GC??
    7. Why couldn’t they integrate the number plate into. Like RX135..just below headlight? (Extension of Yamaha plate just below headlight in RX135)
    8. Is rear Shock absorb-er is gas filled like Pulsar? Spine is very precious….and back pain is painful…!!
    9. If split seat can hold pillion from sliding…will be happy!

    Is Yamaha too slow and too much dependent on FZ only?? Hope they learnt lessons from previous mistakes of depending on RX model for too long…till the brand vanished from market….are they are heading the same way to depend on single segment and single model…??
    Why don’t they try different segment??(certainly not sports bike as the users tastes are comfortable transport…racing instinct is limited.) Get MT180/200…..Bolt-300
