Yamaha FZ-X Overview
Yamaha FZ X is a new 150cc crossover motorcycle that features an amazing design with comfort and safety.
Talking about the looks, Yamaha FZ-X gets a Neo-retro styling inspired by the popular XSR series. It is slightly larger and different from regular FZ.
The bike comes with a circular bi-functional LED headlamp with a LED DRL ring, a muscular fuel tank, along an all-black exhaust. It also has an offset fuel tank cap and a single-piece tuck-and-roll seat with upright handlebars for extra comfort.
Furthermore, the dual-purpose tyres and fork gaiters give the whole design a tough appearance. Additionally, Yamaha FZ-X comes in three color options: Matt Copper, Metallic Blue, and Matte Black.
FZ-X is powered by an air-cooled 149cc SOHC engine that is based on the FZS V3. As a result, it's not surprising that it produces the same power and torque figures at the same RPMs.
It can deliver 12.4 PS of peak power at 7,250 rpm and 13.3Nm of torque at 5,500 rpm. Moreover, the FI motor is linked with a five-speed gearbox.
The new FZ-X weighs around 139kg, which makes it heavier than other 150cc FZ models. Similarly, the fuel tank capacity is 10 litres.
The seat height is measured at 810mm while the wheelbase is 1330mm. It also has a significant 165mm ground clearance.
The motorcycle sits on a single-downtube chassis. Talking about suspension units, there are telescopic forks up front and a 7-step adjustable monocross at the rear end.
The braking duties on the new FZ-X are looked after by 282mm front disc and 220mm rear disc. Additionally, there is a standard single-channel ABS for added safety.
It also gets 17-inches alloy wheels on both ends. As for tyres size, the front is 100/80 whereas the rear is 140/60.
Yamaha FZX is equipped with a multi-information negative LCD meter. The all-digital instrument display comes with a speedometer, tachometer, a digital clock, fuel levels, and two trip meters.
