India Yamaha Motor is all set to launch the FZ-X motorcycle on June 18, 2021. It is likely to be a neo-retro commuter motorcycle, based on the 150 cc Yamaha FZ FI platform. Spy shots of an almost production ready FZ-X have been in circulation on the internet as the motorcycle was being shot for a video commercial in Himachal Pradesh in April 2021. Few Yamaha dealers have already begun taking bookings for the new motorcycle. Booking amount varies between ₹ 5,000 and ₹ 10,000 in Northern India while few dealers down south and in Maharashtra are accepting bookings for ₹ 1,000 as well.

Leaked trademark documents show that the FZ-X shares the 149 cc, single-cylinder engine with the other models in the Yamaha FZ FI range, so it will likely have the same specifications, with maximum power output of 12.4 bhp at 7,250 rpm and 13.3 Nm of peak torque at 5,500 rpm. The chassis and cycle parts are expected to be shared with the Yamaha FZ FI as well, so we expect the same single downtube frame with telescopic front suspension and a rear monoshock.

Like we said earlier, the FZ-X is likely to employ a neo-retro design, maybe even scrambler-ish to set it apart from the current 150 cc range. The changes are largely cosmetic, compared to the Yamaha FZ, so we don’t expect a significant price increment over the FZ and FZ S models. Expect prices in the range of ₹ 1.15-1.20 lakh (Ex-showroom) when the Yamaha FZ-X is launched. Expect it to be launched in a variant with Bluetooth connectivity as well.
