The BS-6 compliant Yamaha FZ-FI and FZS-FI are powered by a 149 cc, single-cylinder engine which is capable of churning out 12.4 hp of power along with 13.6 Nm of peak torque.

Also on offer is an LCD instrument cluster and a single piece, two-level seat.
During the occasion, Mr. Motofumi Shitara, Chairman, Yamaha Motor India Group of companies said, “Our commitment towards customers in India is underlined in exciting products and experiences by The Call of the Blue that stimulates a stylish motorcycling culture. As Yamaha reveals from its new product line up, the BS VI compliant FZ motorcycles will be available across Yamaha showrooms from November, 2019. FZ is an iconic brand and many motorcyclists have been brought up well from its cradle. This popularity served more concern to the company while planning for its BS VI variant. Yamaha strived for optimum cost control and achieved to peg it around 2.5% higher, only to let FZ’s excitement stay unrestrained in India. The new BS VI models in 150 cc is also expected to yield Yamaha’s strong presence in the deluxe class 2W category.”
