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!

After numerous new color introductions to the Yamaha FZ series, the Japanese two wheeler giant has finally launched the revamped Yamaha FZ FI V2.0 series. Here is a visual comparison of the old and new FZ-S.

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 The bulky silencer of the old bike has been replaced by a sleeker element, which gives it a sense of lightness.
