Yamaha has launched the FZ1, a power packed sports bike comes with a compact design and 998cc DOHC 20-valve engine tuned for tremendous mid-range punch and massive top-end power. The cast aluminum bodywork and a comfortable handlebar position give the bike great looks while ensuring the comfort of the rider. The closed-deck cylinder block provides great strength while allowing a narrow engine in spite of big 77mm bores. The high silicon-content ceramic-composite cylinder lining reduces friction and maximizes heat dissipation for consistent power delivery. Also, the fuel injection with computer-controlled sub-throttle valves provides precise fuel/air mixture for outstanding power delivery through its broad rpm range while ensuring compliance of all emissions regulations. FZ1 is available in 2 color options – Black and White priced at Rs. 8,70,000/- (ex-showroom, Delhi).
Its race-inspired curved radiator with twin ring-style fans keeps everything cool under all conditions. The aggressive chassis geometry with supersport inspired 51% front wheel weight bias provides quick and nimble handling. The 320mm front discs aided by mono-block four-piston calipers up front and a single 245mm rear disc serve up strong and consistent stopping power. Other high-tech prominent features of the bike include analog tachometer, digital speedometer, dual trip meter, odometer, water temperature and lights for neutral, high beam, low fuel and turn signals. The half-cowl fairing design gives aggressive eye-catching naked profile to the bike. The dual 12V 60/55 watt multi-reflector headlight features a sleek profile for superb aerodynamics and visibility.
