The Yamaha Fazer FI V2.0 can be identified by the revised semi-fairing.

The new Fazer’s fairing has been reworked to include a pilot lamp and kinks below the dual headlamp. In profile, the fairing has been extended down further. The rest of the bike stays true to the FZ FI V2.0 series. The split seats, new silencer, rear license plate holder, tyre-hugging mud guard and redesigned digital dashboard are all common to the new FZ and Fazer.

The Fazer would also derive its powertrain from the FZ FI V2.0. The new engine displaces 149 cc and is equipped with electronic fuel injection system while the old Fazer employs a carbureted 153 cc unit. The power and torque outputs have been reduced to 13.1 PS and 12.8 Nm of torque as against the old bike’s 14 PS and 13.6 Nm of torque.

However, just like the FZ FI V2.0 series which is lighter than its predecessor, the Fazer FI V2.0 is also expected to be lighter and hence performance should not suffer.

Expected Price: INR 85,000 to 90,000, ex-showroom

Launch Date: September 2014

    Good job IAB , posting the news first , fazer looks better now , but the rear Tyre hugger looks like huggies , spoiling the aesthetics of the bike ,even with fz., suzuki gixxer is the perfect naked bike with curve lines as the best naked bike in its segment, fz lost its curve lines, anyway adjusting with FZ lines and bowled over with gixxer and unfazed by the fazer, yamaha and suzuki will do good, way to the wing rider honda, still trying to spread wings in the premium segment, tvs and bajaj will improve with apache and pulsar…hero with their xtreme still has to do some heroism..

      Well If you dont want then just get rid of Tyre hugger and problem solved. It’s a good thing that they are providing it on a daily commuter bike (For me it is a commuter bike) otherwise just think of what indian monsoon offers and how good rider would feel on a naked bike during monsoon.
