In the year 2019-2020, the two-wheeler manufacturer is going to launch 2 new models in India. The brand assembles both automatic scooters and motorcycles. Below is the description of most popular Yamaha Bikes and scooters in India.
This bike has been updated with a dual-channel ABS. The fully-faired motorcycle now costs Rs 1.39 lakh. The 2018 Yamaha R 15 V 3.0 focusses on performance and looks to give you the thrill of maybe even a bigger capacity motorcycle. You also get a USB charger and an array of optional equipment.
The slip and assist clutch is a segment first and it works very well. Hard downshifts don't easily let the rear lock up and slide uncontrollably. It has no problems in changing directions swiftly. However, tires with more grip could have added a lot more sense to the price.
Advertised as ‘The lord of the streets’, it indeed looks the part. It’s the most refined 150 cc engine of the lot. With a fat rear tyre to corner any curve and bold styling the FZ S is a hit in the premium 150cc market. The engine is a 153cc carburetted unit putting out 13.8 bhp and 13.6 Nm of torque. Priced at ₹ 75,893, the bike is also equipped with modern technology like tubeless tires, digital gauges and monoshock suspension.
The suspension setup of the bike is on the stiffer side. Also, the Yamaha FZ-S has good cruising speeds as it holds speed around 80kmph effortlessly. The mileage figure stands at 50 kmpl. This one is available in 2 variants and 8 colours.
Yamaha has launched the FZ Version 3.0 with a starting price of Rs 95,000 for the FZ-Fi ABS and Rs 97,000 for the FZS-Fi ABS. The bike gets a new redesigned front portion with LED headlamp. The tank extensions are more muscular and are complemented by a sporty-looking engine cowl. At the rear, the body panels look the same as the one in the Version 2.0.
The motorcycle is powered by 149cc single-cylinder air-cooled, fuel-injected engine which produces 13.2PS and 12.8Nm, working alongside a 5-speed transmission. Yamaha FZ-S Fi Version 3.0 prices start at Rs. 97,300. Yamaha FZ-S Fi Version 3.0 is available in 1variant and 3 colours. The claimed ARAI mileage for the Yamaha FZ-S Fi Version 3.0 petrol is 53 kmpl. Suspension bits include telescopic front forks and a monoshock at the rear. The bike is anchored by front and a rear disc, with single-channel ABS as standard.
Yamaha takes the FZ brand forward with the newly launched FZ 25. this is exactly the upgrade the typical FZ16 owner will appreciate. The FZ25's 2-valve, 249cc single is air cooled, but benefits from an oil cooler to produces a decent 20.9PS, which it sends to the rear wheel via a 5-speed gearbox. Pottering around in higher gears comes naturally to this bike.
Thanks to the engine's unstressed ability to sit in high gears, city mileage is a decent 30.8kmpl. The company has assembled the FZ25 with double-channel ABS, in turn bringing with it a price hike to Rs 1.33 lakh. It is a premium of Rs 14,000 over the non-ABS version and gets three new colors. The non-ABS models will continue to sell until stocks last. Yamaha FZ 25 prices start at Rs. 1.20 lakh. Yamaha FZ 25 is available in 2 variants and 3 colors.
At 103kg, the new Yamaha Fascino is the lightest of all the Yamaha scooters, and in the segment. The company has also carved out a fairly large 380mm wide and 220mm long footboard, which makes for decent leg room. The Fascino has one of the most refined engines in the scooter segment of India.
Apart from the light weight, Yamaha uses a range of fuel saving techniques such as a high-ignitability nickel spark plug, and its Blue Core technology which reduces engine friction. Yamaha has updated the Fascino with UBS (Unified Braking System).
The switch gear feel and finish is of good quality, but isn't exceptional as expected on a premium scooter. The telescopic suspension in the Fascino offers great comfort as compared to usual link-arm setup seen on scooters like the Activa. Yamaha has also launched a Darknight edition of the Fascino that costs Rs56,793 (ex-showroom, Delhi). Yamaha Fascino prices start at Rs. 54,793. Yamaha Fascino is available in 2 variants and 8 colours.
Yamaha YZF R1 prices start at Rs. 19.67 lakh (Ex-Showroom). Yamaha YZF R1 is available in 1 variant and 2 colours. The claimed ARAI mileage for the Yamaha YZF R1 petrol is 15 kmpl. The Yamaha YZF-R1 is powered by a 998cc, in-line four, liquid cooled engine which makes 200PS power.
The ECU is programmed with five different types of control systems, including traction control, slide control, launch control and quick shifter.
Yamaha Fazer-FI prices start at Rs. 89,643 (Ex-Showroom). Yamaha Fazer-FI is available in 1 variant and 3 colours. A tourer-friendly version from Yamaha's FX-series, the Fazer is one of the best looking motorcycles in the country today matched by equal grunt from the 150cc engine that powers it.
Yamaha Ray ZR prices start at Rs. 53,651 (Ex-Showroom) and the top end variant Yamaha Ray ZR Street Rally Edition is priced at Rs. 58,098 (Ex-Showroom). Yamaha Ray ZR is available in 3 variants and 7 colours. The Yamaha Ray-ZR is the forth scooter offering from the Japanese two-wheeler giant for the Indian market.
With its sharp and sporty styling, the new scooter has been targeted at young male buyers and is also the first Yamaha scooter to get front disc brake as an optional extra.
Yamaha Fazer 25 serves up as a good alternative for those looking for a substantially large bike without spending a bomb on it. The Fazer 25 should be comfortable and perform well in the city though the short gearing makes it unsuitable for touring.
On the other hand, FZ25 is poised as a large capacity bike that you will be comfortable commuting to the office every day and hitting the twisties on the weekday in. The low sticker price and accessible power make it a good upgrade over your 150/160cc bike. Do take a test ride in order to judge your riding comfort.
