    By the by

    Yamaha recently trademarked the name 'Tracer' in India which could mean there is a sports tourer brewing for our market. The Tracer is Yamaha's sports tourer that comes in 700 and 900cc segments. Not much is known on the subject but Yamaha might just be working on a Triumph Tiger 900 and Ducati Multistrada 950 rival.

    The XSR relation

    When the 150cc XSR was launched globally, it saw a cheerful response from fans and potential customers in India and many hoped the baby XSR would make its way here. However, Yamaha opted to give the FZ series a neo-retro spin which is inspired by the XSR lineup and will be easy on the pocket comparatively.  

    10:40 (IST)18 Jun 2021
    Suspension and braking

    The FZ-X most likely shares its suspension setup and braking hardware with the Yamaha FZS. The new neo-retro bike is likely to come with 282 mm and 220 mm front and rear disc brakes. It will be further assisted by a single-channel ABS as standard.

Only a few dealers had started accepting bookings which will be opened officially today.

    Yamaha FZ-X expected price

    The upcoming Yamaha FZ-X could also offer smartphone connectivity via Bluetooth. Considering all the changes in comparison to the FZS, the FZ-X would demand a premium of around Rs 5,000-7,000 over the starting price of the FZS-Fi which retails at Rs 1.08 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi).

    10:13 (IST)18 Jun 2021
    FZ-X design features

    Upfront, the new FZ-X will get an LED projector headlamp that seems to have been lifted from the MT-15, along with split-style LED DRLs. Moreover, it gets front fork gaiters along with a rear tyre hugger. The pillion grab rail though looks quite basic.

    10:10 (IST)18 Jun 2021
    Yamaha FZ-X engine

    The upcoming Yamaha FZ-X will be powered by the same 149cc engine that it will share with the Yamaha FZS. The engine puts out 12 hp and will be paired with a five-speed gearbox.

    10:07 (IST)18 Jun 2021
    What will the X be different from the S?

    According to the specs we found on the Internet, the FZ-X will be 2,020 mm in length, 785 mm in width and 1,115 mm in height. Hence, the new model will be 30 mm longer, 5 mm wider and 35 mm taller than the FZS-Fi. So, it should appear larger than its streetfighter sibling. Also, it will boast a neo-retro design.

    The new Yamaha FZ-X shares its powertrain with the 155cc FZ and also the frame but it boasts a new neo-retro design inspired by the XSR series. Along with the FZ-X, Yamaha unveiled the upcoming Fascino and Ray-ZR scooters as well, which will be launched soon.
