Yamaha to launch new FZ variants

India Yamaha Motor is ready with its next assault – the mini-Fazer inspired 150cc bike. Yamaha in India seems to be on a mission to bombard the 150cc segment with numerous new and exciting models, as the shell-shocked competition watches on in disbelief.

The latest from Yamaha is what looks like a scaled down version Yamaha’s popular international sportsbike – the Fazer 1000. The Fazer in its 150cc avatar was caught being tested on Indian roads recently and images of which have been posted on various automotive forums on the Internet.

Yamaha Fazer 150Yamaha is gradually heading towards the top-slot of performance bike makers post the launch of new-age bikes like the R15, FZ-16 and FZ-S which have caused serious damage to the sales figure of the current leading performance bike makers. TVS on the other hand is ready to launch the bigger Apache RTR 180 which will spice things up further in the Indian performance bikes segment. Surely, Indian bike enthusiast are not complaining.

The Fazer 150 will be based on the FZ-16 and will sport a muscular front fairing. Though the new bike will have the same engine which might be tuned for improved performance. We expect no major changes in the pricing of the Fazer 150 and could bear FZ-S’ price tag.

Since the Fazer 150 is being tested exhaustive on Indian roads, guess we don’t have to wait too long for the launch of the bike.
