The price increase does not affect the MotoGP Edition of the Yamaha FZ-25. This marginal price increase should not affect the sales during the high demand festive season. However, the complete range will receive a bigger hike in the ex-showroom tags post the BS-VI upgrade. Yamaha has confirmed that its BS-VI range of motorcycles will start to roll out from November this year, and the updated models can carry a premium of up to 10%-15% over the BS-IV compliant versions. Maybe the company is increasing the prices marginally now so that it doesn't have to announce a steep hike at that time.
The specifications of the BS-VI compliant FZ series (FZ-Fi and FZS-Fi) have been leake. The updated models will pack relatively lower performance numbers than the BS-IV versions. The BS-VI compliant FZ-Fi and FZS-Fi will draw 9.1 kW or 12.4 PS of maximum power from its 149 cc, single-cylinder, air-cooled motor. In comparison, the current model is tuned to deliver 9.7 kW or 13.2 PS. The engine comes linked to a five-speed gearbox. The dimensions will remain unaltered.
The FZ series received a makeover in January this year. Thus, the BS-VI compliant models are not likely to look any different from the outgoing BS-IV version. However, there could be new graphics and paint schemes on the BS-VI models to distinguish them from the BS-IV versions.
In more updates, Yamaha Motor India is offering the FZ-Fi and the FZS-Fi at special festive season offer until 31 October 2019. The offer brings benefits of INR 8,280 on the FZ (150 cc) series. Both motorcycles are also available at an interest rate of 6.9% and a low down payment of INR 4,999.
