    Yamaha today launched the new and improved FZ Motocycle for the year 2014. The new "v.20" FZ now comes with Fuel Injection + Improved Styling + Instrument cluster and the all important price tag of Rs 76,250 (ex-Delhi). The new FI enabled bike has had its power output reduced from 14 PS to 13.1.

    Along with the usual visual upgrades Yamaha claims its Blue Core Technology (centered around the new FI system) will improve the efficiency and mileage of the popular 150 cc class bike.


    New FZ - Rs. 76,250
    New FZ-S - Rs 78,250

    The only welcome bit I see is the change in Body work styling and and Fuel Injection which should improve throttle response.

    Honestly, it's time for a bigger upgrade to these good looking machines.

    The sticker job just takes them the Hero Honda way.

    What we want is 50cc supercharged moped, capable of doing 100 kmph

    The issue is volume sales. 300-400 cc don't drive the volumes and margins these companies need to keep running at the scale they are.

    Given petrol prices, I am not surprised.
