Yamaha has launched the FZ V3 in India today, priced from Rs. 95,000/- (a price increase of Rs. 11,000/-). Available in 2 variants, FZ-FI ABS and FZS-FI ABS, the Yamaha FZ V3 gets a new LED headlight with separate housing for the beams, newly designed plastic resin tank cover, sliding engine kill switch, FZ25 mudguard and Bosch single-channel ABS. Yamaha has also updated the instrument cluster on the FZ which is an all-digital LCD meter with better readouts.

Yamaha claims the front-end, tank and engine of the FZ V3 resemble that of an urban fighter. The two-level single-piece seat (the old bike had a split seat) on the motorcycle is now 5 mm thicker with a 16% larger surface. The bike gets a one-piece aluminium grab rail. The Yamaha FZ-S gets an under-cowl (engine fairing in Yamaha speak) and chrome duct plate (chrome air intake in Yamaha speak) and exclusive colour schemes over the FZ.

The Yamaha FZ V3 continues to use a 140 mm radial rear tyre with a rear disc. It carries over the 149cc, single-cylinder, air-cooled, 2-valve, fuel-injected engine with BlueCore technology, producing 13.2 PS of power at 8000 RPM and 12.8 Nm of torque at 6000 RPM. The 150cc motorcycle also gets a newly designed sub-frame along with a higher handlebar position.

The third generation Yamaha FZ is priced at Rs. 95,000/- and is available in 2 colours – metric black and racing blue while the Yamaha FZ-S ABS is priced at Rs. 97,000/- (all prices ex-showroom) and is available in 3 colours – dark matt blue, matt black and gray & cyan blue. The sales of the motorcycles commence immediately with bookings open pan India for an amount of Rs. 5000/-.
