The Yamaha FZ and Yamaha FZ-S Version 3.0 now get single-channel ABS and updated styling

Yamaha India has launched the 2019 Yamaha FZ Version 3.0 and the 2019 Yamaha FZ-S Version 3.0 with updated bodywork, new LED headlamp, a new instrument console and single-channel anti-lock braking system (ABS). The 150 cc, naked street motorcycle is available in two variants, with the standard Yamaha FZ Version 3.0 being priced at ₹ 95,000 (ex-showroom Delhi), while the FZ-S Version 3.0 variant has been priced at ₹ 97,000 (ex-showroom). The Yamaha FZ has been around since 2008, and started the trend of the muscular naked street styling that is synonymous with 150-160 cc motorcycles in India today. Here’s a look at what all has changed on the third generation Yamaha FZ.

Updated Design

The Yamaha FZ V3.0 gets significantly updated bodywork, including an all-new LED headlamp which gives a completely new look to the face of the motorcycle. The LCD instrument panel is all-new as well, and so is the muscular fuel tank with the long tank extensions, something similar to the Yamaha FZ-25. There’s a small engine belly pan on the Yamaha FZ-S V3.0 as well, and the riding position has also changed somewhat with a slightly taller handlebar. The new generation FZ also loses the split seats and gets a single-piece unit which is slightly larger and offers better padding as well. There’s also a new one-piece aluminium grab bar. The exhaust muffler seems to be borrowed from the bigger Yamaha FZ-25.

Same fuel-injected engine, more weight

The Yamaha FZ-S Version 3.0 gets updated styling and single-channel ABS

The third generation FZ and FZ-S however don’t get any updates to the powerplant. The 149 cc, air-cooled, two-valve, single-cylinder engine makes 13.2 bhp at 8,000 rpm and 12.8 Nm of peak torque at 6,000 rpm. The kerb weight has also increased by 5 kg on the third generation FZ, from 132 kg in the outgoing model to 137 kg in the latest variant. The FZ is still one of the lighter motorcycles in its class, but is still one of the least powerful motorcycles compared to the competition.

Single-channel ABS

The Yamaha FZ V3.0 and FZ-S V3.0 now gets single-channel anti-lock brakes (ABS). This is a regulatory measure, and all motorcycles of 125 cc and above will need to have at least single-channel ABS by April 1, 2019. So, the FZ Version 3.0 is now ready to meet the mandatory ABS norms, but that has bumped up the price of the motorcycle as well.

The Yamaha FZ and FZ-S continue to be one of the more popular motorcycles from Yamaha India, and with the updates, the prices have been increased at ₹ 95,000 for the standard FZ Version 3.0 and ₹ 97,000 (ex-showroom Delhi) for the Yamaha FZ-S Version 3.0. The updated Yamaha FZ and FZ-S takes on other worthy competitors in this segment, including the Honda CB Hornet 160R, Bajaj Pulsar NS160, Suzuki Gixxer and the TVS Apache RTR 160 4V. The latest generation Yamaha FZ and FZ-S certainly get fresh appeal and with ABS. But in terms of value they still aren’t the most powerful among the competition. How they perform, both on the road, and in the market, against worthy competitors remain to be seen.

The third generation Yamaha FZ has been finally launched in India that comes with comprehensive upgrades

Kick-starting the year for Japanese manufacturer Yamaha, the third generation FZ has been finally launched in India priced at ₹ 95,000 and FZ-S is priced at ₹ 97,000 (ex-showroom). The 2019 Yamaha FZ-S V3.0 comes with a host of upgrades over its predecessor including a completely new design theme, improved engine and performance figures and the addition of AntiLock Brakes (ABS) that will be standard on all motorcycles above 125 cc from April 2019. The new Yamaha FZ V3.0 aims to re-establish Yamaha’s dominance in the premium end of the 150 cc space, a segment started by the FZ range back in 2008. 

The 2019 Yamaha FZ-S V3.0 looks dramatically different over its predecessor and a lot more refreshing. Upgrades include the new full-LED dual pod headlamp unit, along with the new beefed-up fuel tank and come with the extended tank shrouds. The design is decidedly in-line with the larger Yamaha FZ-25 and offers a more masculine and brawny appeal to the motorcycle. The Yamaha FZ V3.0 also comes with a new step-up style single-seat replacing the split seat, new alloy wheels and the fenders have been redesigned as well. Other upgrades include the turn indicators that have moved up a bit and there’s new exhaust cover too. The instrument console remains digital but has been updated to view more information this time.

The 2019 Yamaha FZ V3.0 has also received a big update to its powertrain. The motorcycle is powered by the 149 cc single-cylinder, fuel-injected engine and is now tuned to produce 13.2 bhp and 12.8 Nm of peak torque. The motor continues to be paired to a 5-speed gearbox. The bike also continues to use the beefy looking 41 mm telescopic forks up front and a monoshock unit at the rear, while braking performance comes from disc units at either end. The third generation FZ V3.0 now comes with single-channel ABS as standard, which means you have better braking control on the front wheel.

The 2019 Yamaha FZ-S V3.0 will go on sale later this year and will join the very competitive 150 cc motorcycle segment against the likes of the Honda CB Hornet 160R, TVS Apache RTR 160 4V, Bajaj Pulsar NS160, and even the Hero Xtreme 200R. The FZ-S V3.0 is priced at a premium of about ₹ 10,000 over its predecessor. Yamaha dealerships across the country have started accepting bookings for the new FZ.

2019 Yamaha FZ-S V3.0 India Launch Live Updates: Images, Specifications, Features



2019 Yamaha FZ-S V3.0 India Launch Live Updates: Images, Specifications, Features

The new Yamaha FZ-S V3 gets improved styling elements, new and updated features, and more

India Yamaha is all set to launch the new-gen Yamaha FZ-S V3.0 in India today and we’ll be bringing you all the live updates from the launch here. The third-generation Yamaha FZ-S will come with improved styling, new features and possibly an updated engine. The bike is also expected to come with ABS, considering the deadline for mandating Anti-lock Brakes in bike 125 cc and above is April 1, 2018. However, we will come to know more about the bike once it’s launched, later today.

The new Yamaha FZ-S V3.0 has already been spotted a multiple times, most recently in its undisguised avatar with all the badging intact. Based on the spy photos, the new FZ gets a new fuel tank, new panels and a new headlamp, most probably an LED unit similar to that on the FZ25. The other distinguishing bit that we could figure was the air-vent like structure towards the front of the fuel tank which is most likely beautification of sorts and might not serve any practical purpose.

The current-gen Yamaha FZ FI V2.0 sells for Rs. 82,040 while the FZ-S FI sells for Rs. 88,042 (all prices ex-showroom, Delhi). Expect the new-generation FZ to cost about Rs. 10,000 to Rs. 15,000 considering Yamaha offers ABS as standard fitment. Currently, the engine is tuned to generate a maximum of about 13 bhp and a peak torque of 12.8 Nm, while being mated to a 5-speed gearbox. We do not expect that to change. However, we would also like the new FZ to get a bump in power and torque output as the current model is the least powerful in its segment.

Here Are All The Live Updates From The Launch Of The 2019 Yamaha FZ-S V3.0:

The Yamaha MT-15 is the naked version of the YZF R15 V3 and with it being spotted testing India we could very well see it getting launched soon.

The MT-15 test mule seen here looks quite close to production-ready

Spyshots of the Yamaha MT-15 have been floating on the internet suggesting the fact that Yamaha could possibly launch the motorcycle in the country very soon. The Yamaha MT-15 is the naked, streetfighter version of the YZF R15 V3 which was launched at the 2018 Auto Expo. It will have the same 155 cc single-cylinder engine as on the R3 which makes 18.7 bhp and 15 Nm of peak torque while being paired to a six-speed gearbox. Expect the MT-15 to get VVA or variable valve timing as well. Expect the MT-15 to also get features such as an LCD instrument console along with ABS.

While the international-spec model gets upside down forks, the model that will be launched here will be equipped with regular telescopic front forks. At the rear, there will be a monoshock. Also, the MT-15 will feature the same 282 mm disc up front and a 220 mm unit at the rear. In terms of design, the spyshots reveal that the MT-15 will feature a typically aggressive design along with an LED lamp, a chiselled fuel tank and sharp lines which will offer a streetfighter look to the motorcycle.

The test mule seen in the pics looks quite close to being production ready and we wouldn’t be surprised if Yamaha launched the motorcycle in the next couple of months or so. Expect the motorcycle to be launched at a price point of about ₹ 1.15 to ₹ 1.25 lakh. It will go up against the KTM 125 Duke and also its own sibling, the Yamaha FZ25, which has a price of ₹ 1.19 lakh.

Yamaha will be launching a new motorcycle on 21st January, 2019. Now whether it is the MT-15 or the 2019 FZ-S V3, it is yet to be seen but here is the latest round of spyshots of the new-generation FZ-S and completely undisguised at that. With these new photos, it could be seen that the new motorcycle gets a new fuel tank, new panels and a new headlamp, most probably an LED unit similar to that on the FZ25. The other distinguishing bit that we could figure was the air-vent like structure towards the front of the fuel tank which is most likely beautification of sorts and might not serve any practical purpose.

The seat on the new FZ will be a single-piece unit as opposed to the step-seat unit on the FZ V2.0. We would also like the new FZ to get a bump in power and torque output as the current model is the least powerful in its segment. The engine covers seem to be the same from the test mules which were spotted earlier. The alloy wheels too have a different design and look much better on the FZ-S V3.0 than on the current model. The rear section of the motorcycle along with the grab-rails and the exhaust will be new as well.

We expect Yamaha to offer ABS right from the launch, at least a single-channel ABS on the new-generation FZ-S. The current-gen Yamaha FZ FI V2.0 sells for ₹ 82,040 while the FZ-S FI sells for ₹ 88,042 (all prices ex-showroom, Delhi). Expect the new-generation FZ to cost about ₹ 10,000 to ₹ 15,000 considering Yamaha offers ABS as standard fitment.

2019 Yamaha YZF-R15 V3.0 ABS Launched In India; Priced At Rs. 1.39 Lakh





View Photos

The 2018 Yamaha YZF-R15 ABS bookings are open at dealerships pan India

Yamaha Motor India has kick-started the new year with the launch of the 2019 YZF-R15 V3.0 ABS priced at ₹ 1.39 lakh (ex-showroom). That’s a price hike of ₹ 12,000 over the non-ABS version. The third generation of the very successful R15 series was launched at the 2018 Auto Expo and the motorcycle has gone on to become a brisk seller for the manufacturer. With ABS, the Yamaha YZF-R15 V3.0 gets an extremely important safety feature that was otherwise missing on the brilliant package it is and comes with dual-channel ABS as standard. The next few weeks will see Yamaha update its existing products with ABS in a bid to comply with the upcoming safety regulations.

The 2019 Yamaha R15 ABS is offered in three new colour options

Yamaha R15 V3.0

Speaking on the updated YZF-R15 V3.0 ABS, Yamaha Motor India – Chairman, Motofumi Shitara said, “The Call of the Blue brand campaign introduced in 2018 was the beginning of a new outlook that has effectively hit the right note – Yamaha’s true DNA of style, sporty and excitement. The New Year 2019 will also be exciting in Yamaha and it is ready with the heart revving products. A brand known for leading generations of stylish ride through improved technologies, Yamaha has now engineered to implement a dual channel ABS to the YZF-R15 Version 3.0. The initiative to offer dual channel ABS in YZF-R15 Version 3.0 has endowed Yamaha as the trendsetter in the 150 cc class, by introducing it for the first time in the particular segment. Yamaha will continue to optimize the thrill of riding with its style and excitement.”

The 2019 Yamaha YZF-R15 V3.0 is the first motorcycle in the 150 cc class to get dual-channel ABS as standard. The bike does not get any mechanical upgrades for the new year and continues to come equipped with VVA technology, Assist and Slipper clutch, LED headlamp and taillight and more. The ABS unit too comes with adjustable fluid pressure that allows for immediate braking on slippery roads. Power continues to come from the 155 cc single-cylinder, liquid-cooled engine tuned for 19 bhp at 10,000 rpm and 14.7 Nm of peak torque available at 8500 rpm. The motor is paired with a 6-spees gearbox.

The 2019 R15 ABS continues to use the same 155 cc motor with 19 bhp on offer

The new Yamaha YZF-R15 V3.0 ABS will be available in new colours though including the all-black Darknight along with Thunder Grey and Racing Blue. The R15 first year sales doubled up the targeted production given the strong demand, and the ABS equipped version is expected to see better control on the bike as well. Bookings for the R15 ABS are already open at Yamaha dealerships pan India.

Meanwhile, Yamaha is gearing up to launch a new two-wheeler on January 21 in the country. The company has been tight-lipped about what the new bike will be but it is likely that the company’s next offering could be the FZ V3.0. It’ll be interesting to see though if the new FZ gets dual-channel ABS as well. More details on the new offering will be available closer to the launch.

Yamaha To Launch New Motorcycle Next Month


Yamaha has sent us a block-your-date mailer for a new motorcycle launch on January 21, 2019. Could it be the new-gen FZ or could it be the MT-15? Take a guess.

Yamaha hasn’t announced which model is it going to launch, the new-gen FZ is a possible option

Yamaha will be launching a new motorcycle on January 21, 2019. The mail referred to a product which will be sporty. Of course, Yamaha hasn’t announced which model is it going to launch, but we are going out on a limb and make an educated guess that the company will be launching the new-generation FZ-FI. The new bike has been spotted testing in India quite a few times and with the second generation FZ being launched in 2014, it was about time for a model upgrade and not just a facelift. The FZ is still one of the better selling models in the Yamaha portfolio and we believe the new model will just make it all better.

(The new FZ will have a bunch of new features as well)

The new FZ spy shots suggest that the motorcycle will get a major overhaul, which includes new bodywork along with a few changes to the engine as well. Expect new features such as ABS, LED headlamp and other significant changes as well. Alternatively, the new model could also be an ABS version of the R15 V3 or the MT-15. We are expecting India Yamaha Motor to launch the MT-15 this year too.

The new Yamaha FZ V3 will feature a redesigned fuel tank, which appears to be a bit larger now with new sharper-looking tank extensions below. Another major change will be the new single seat, unlike the step seat on the current motorcycle. The bike also comes with an updated tail section with a new grab-rail and revised tail-lamp. Among other features, the bike now also will have a new tyre-hugger, a new beefier exhaust pipe with a two-tone colour scheme. The alloy wheels are also new and feature a 10-spoke design.

Next-Gen Yamaha FZ V3 Motorcycle Spotted Testing Again


The new-gen Yamaha FZ V3 gets new styling elements, new alloy wheels, and more. The bike is expected to be launched sometime early 2019.

The new Yamaha FZ V3 gets improved styling elements, new and updated features, and more

Another test mule of the new-gen Yamaha FZ V3 was recently spotted in India. The latest images reveal a near-production unit, and this time around we also get to see the front section of the motorcycle. While the image is not very clear, the bike does seem to come with a new sleeker headlamp with a separate LED daytime running lamp. The profile, however, is much clearer in these images, compared to the previous ones, and we get to see a bunch of new elements as well.

For instance, the new Yamaha FZ V3 comes with a redesigned fuel tank, which appears to be a bit larger now with new sharper-looking tank extensions below. Another major change, of course, is the new single-piece seat, unlike the two-piece seat in the outgoing model, which will lead to a more comfortable seating position and will also be more pillion-friendly. The bike also comes with an updated tail section with new single piece grab-rail and revised taillamp. Among other features, the bike now also features a new tyre-hugger, a new beefier exhaust pipe with dual tone black and gunmetal treatment. The alloy wheels are also new and also new 10-spoke alloy wheels, which look like 17-inch units.

Yamaha FZ S V2.0 FI

(The new FZ will have a bunch of new features as well)

Other changes that we expect to see will include a new instrument cluster, possibly an all-digital LED unit similar to the one on the new YZF R15 V3 that was launch early this year. Come April 2019, all new two-wheelers with displacement equal to or more than 125 cc will compulsorily need to have ABS and going by this, we believe Yamaha will offer ABS as standard fitment right from the launch itself. Of course, it could be a single-channel unit to keep the costs down.

Powering the new bike will be the same 149 cc single-cylinder, fuel injected motor that powers the existing model. Currently, the engine is tuned to generate a maximum of about 13 bhp and a peak torque of 12.8 Nm, while being mated to a 5-speed gearbox. We do not expect that to change. As for the launch, there is no update on that matter yet, however, Yamaha is hosting a press conference on January 21, details of which are still unknown. It’s possible that the company might launch the bike then.
