Yamaha Motor India recently introduced the FZS-FI Vintage, which shares the style and DNA of the FZ lineup.
“More than ten years ago in India, a motorcycle offering the punch of performance and economy from Yamaha cemented the way for refined engine and smooth power delivery as the centerpiece of ‘the thrill of riding.’ Yamaha FZ in the 150cc category personified as ‘lord of the streets’ with its stylish looks and comfort has developed a new class of performance motorcycle in the country,” part of the release read.
The FZS-FI Vintage combines its classic aesthetic with features like Bluetooth connectivity and a negative LCD instrument cluster panel. The iconic design, meanwhile, consists of vintage graphics and an LED headlight, as well as a leather-finished two-level seat and advanced midship muffler cover.
The commuter bike’s 149cc SOHC single-cylinder engine with Blue Core technology pumps a maximum of 12.4hp at 7,250rpm and 13.6Nm of torque at 5,500rpm. According to the official product description, “settings were optimized to further polish the feeling of superior acceleration from stops and exhilarating feeling when overtaking.”
Aside from the telescopic fork front suspension, the FZS-FI Vintage also has a seven-step adjustable monocross suspension at the rear. The 282mm front disc with Bosch ABS and 280mm rear disc ensure better braking performance. Accessories here include an LED flasher, tank pad, skid plate, and rear footrest, among others.
The new Yamaha FZS-FI Vintage will be available in Vintage Green at 109,000 Indian rupee, or around P71,645.
