Yamaha Motor India recently announced that its FZS-FI Bluetooth series has received a price increase.
The Blue Core concept-driven naked bike is equipped with 149cc SOHC air-cooled single-cylinder engine that is capable of 12.2hp at 7,250rpm and 13.3Nm torque at 5,500rpm. The FZS-FI has a built-in side-stand engine cutoff switch and, more important, the Yamaha Motorcycle Connect X app with Bluetooth.
Yamaha seemed to have bumped the cost based on color scheme:
- Matte Red, Matte Black, Dark Matte Blue – 108,200 Indian rupee (P71,812, from 107,200 Indian rupee or P71,148)
- Dark Knight – 109,700 Indian rupee (P72,808, from 108,700 Indian rupee P72,144)
- Vintage Green – 111,700 Indian rupee (P74,135, from 110,700 Indian rupee or P73,471)
The Yamaha FZS-FI also features a lightweight Monocross suspension unit for mass centralization, as well as front Bosch ABS and rear disc brakes. Design components include a two-level seat, chrome duct plating with a 3D emblem, an LED headlight, an advanced midship muffler, and a negative LCD instrument cluster panel (digital speedometer, bar-style tachometer, fuel gauge, ABS warning lamp).
Yamaha Motor India launched the FZS-FI Vintage in December. While the Bluetooth-enabled model has yet to be made available in the Philippines, the NMax 155 and the Mio Aerox 155—both scooters—are already using the said connectivity feature.
If Yamaha decides to introduce Bluetooth to one of their manual-transmission bikes that are sold locally, which model do you think will get it?
