Yamaha India launches special edition FZ-S and Fazer
Nithyanandh K, As a toddler, those wheeled machinery fascinated me even before I knew what they’re called as! So here I'm, petrolhead by birth, Mechanical engineer by qualification and automotive reporter by profession!
When Yamaha launches a special edition model in India, it usually doesn’t extend beyond new color options and decals. It’s no different this time!
The Yamaha FZ-S Special Edition and the Yamaha Fazer Special Edition are here to boost sales during the festive season. Both motorcycles will be available in a new Battle Green color option along with some aggressive decals.
The FZ series was introduced in 2008 and since then there has been no significant mechanical change, but cosmetic changes in the form of new color themes and decals were introduced.
The 153cc air cooled 4-stroke engine generates 14bhp and 13.6 Nm of torque and is paired to a 5-speed gearbox. No changes in this department.
Talking about the new special edition motorcycles, Roy Kurian, Vice President, sales and marketing, Yamaha Motor India Sales, said –
These bikes have been instrumental in catapulting our sales to an all new level. We have kept the essence of FZ series bikes intact while altering the aesthetics to exemplify the masculine feeling these tough machines are known for. We are confident that these variants too will be an instant hit among the biking enthusiasts.
The Yamaha FZ-S Special Edition is priced at Rs. 74,385 while the Fazer Special Edition retails at Rs. 79,485, both prices being ex-showroom Delhi.
