Popular Japanese two-wheeler giant Yamaha has ruled the Indian market for quite some time now and the case is no different with the Yamaha FZ series, which is currently the most popular motorcycle in India. The beast was modified and upgraded with the fuel injection feature couple of years back and from then onwards its name was rechristened as the Yamaha FZ-FI version 2.0. The vehicle is one of the leading contenders in the segment of 150 cc motorbikes in India, and a pivotal part of this aspect can be simply credited to the bike’s muscular demeanour, which was an instant hit for the Indian audience, when it was first introduced to the Indian market around eight years ago.
The upgraded version, that is the Yamaha FZ-FI has a poised and chiselled fuel tank, very much like the brand new Yamaha FZ 25, along with a sharp and appealing headlamp, and it also comes decked with split sears as well as a chunky muffler, making it a much more power packed offering from Yamaha. Just like the new FZ 25, the Yamaha FZ FI too gets an entirely digital console, which used to be a semi-digital one in its older model, and the LCD display now showcased all important information alongside the vehicle’s fuel economy efficiency.
The vehicle is currently available in the Indian market at an on road price of approximately Rs. 82,000 and its direct competitors are the Honda CB Hornet 160, the TVS Apache RTR180, the Hero Xtreme, as well as the SyzukiGixxer.
