Here we have the exhaust note video of the Yamaha FZX which is scheduled for launch on 18th June 2021.

The retro style motorcycle is based on the 150cc FZ FI and unsurprisingly, it does sound pretty similar to the naked bike, which, in other words means it is rather muted.

We disclosed in December 2020 that Yamaha has applied and received the trademark for the FZX moniker and early test mules of the motorcycle were spotted in March.

Thus far, it is clear that the styling of the commuter bike has been inspired by the Japanese firm’s XSR range of motorcycles. Thus, it will come with a circular LED headlamp, brushed aluminium-finish parts, a raised handlebar, flat seat and short tail.

Despite it looking different to the regular FZ series of motorcycles (the FZX is a bit longer, wider and taller than the FZ FI) the mechanical parts will be identical to that of the FZ. The 149cc engine also puts out the same 12.4 PS of power at 7250 RPM.

Similarly, the bike’s suspension and braking hardware are set to be borrowed from the FZ FI, which should mean it would be a potent city bike. That said, the Yamaha FZX exhaust note could have been a bit deeper to go with its overall retro vibe.

Expect the FZX to command a premium over the FZ FI and cost close to the Vintage Green edition of the motorcycle range.
