The new Yamaha FZ-X is set to be launched in India on 18th June and Express Drives was the first publication to report the launch date of the bike. Our dealer sources have now confirmed that the bookings of the bike have now opened unofficially across the showrooms in India. A few dealers that we spoke to have started accepting bookings for the upcoming model for a minimum token amount of Rs 5,000. It has to be noted that only a few dealers have started taking bookings and hence, if you want to book the Yamaha FZ-X, it would be best to check with your nearest Yamaha dealership. The new Yamaha FZ-X was snapped a few weeks back completely undisguised during a TVC shoot near the Atal tunnel.

As one could see in the pictures, the bike will come with a neo-retro design language. Upfront, the new FZ-X will get an LED projector headlight that seems to have been lifted from the MT-15. The said unit is circumferenced by split-styled LED DRLs that should look good in the dark. Moreover, one can see the front fork gaiters along with a rear tyre hugger. The rear body grab rail though looks quite basic. Based on the FZS-Fi, the upcoming model will also share its engine with the former.
That said, the 149cc, single-pod, air-cooled engine that produces 12 hp of power on the FZS-Fi should also offer a similar power output on the FZ-X as well. Transmission will be a five-speed unit. As per a leaked document that was doing rounds on the web a few days back, the upcoming Yamaha FZ-X will be taller, wider and also longer than the FZS-Fi. Moreover, just like the said model, the upcoming bike should offer Smartphone Bluetooth connectivity as well. The upcoming Yamaha FZ-X might demand a premium of around Rs 5,000 to Rs 7,000 over the starting price of the FZS-Fi i.e. Rs 1.08 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi). More details including price to be out on 18th June, so keep watching this space for all the action.
