Yamaha has begun their launches for the new year with the launch of the 2022 FZ-S Fi. Yamaha has also launched a new Dlx variant of the 2022 FZS-FI which gets a bit more kit over the standard variant by way of new graphics, coloured alloy wheels, LED indicators and a dual-tone seat. The extra kit comes at a slight premium with prices for the standard variant starting at Rs 1.16 lakh while the Dlx variant starts at Rs 1.19 lakh.
For 2022, the Yamaha FZS-Fi remains mechanically unchanged. What’s new, is the updated colour schemes and a few feature updates. The standard FZS-Fi now gets an LED taillight and the Matt Red and Matt Blue colours have been updated slightly, The Yamaha FZS- Fi Dlx variant, however, gets a few new features like LED indicators along with the LED taillight, new graphics, a dual-tone coloured seat and coloured alloy wheels to set it apart from the standard variant. The Yamaha FZS-Fi Dlx variant will be available in three colour schemes — Metallic Black, Metallic Deep Red, Solid Gray.
As aforementioned, the bike remains mechanically unchanged over the models it replaces, meaning it is powered by the same 149cc single-cylinder air-cooled engine that is good for 12.2bhp at 7250rpm and 13.3Nm of twist at 5500rpm. It uses the same steel diamond frame and is suspended on the same telescopic fork set up at the front and a seven-step preload-adjustable monoshock at the rear. Braking is taken care of by a 282mm disc up front and a 220mm disc at the rear with the safety net of single-channel ABS. In terms of features, both bikes now get LED lighting at both ends and a Bluetooth enabled instrument cluster.
Commenting on the launch of the FZS-Fi, Eishin Chihana, Yamaha Motor India Group, chairman, said - “Under The Call of the Blue initiative, we will continue to reach out to our customers and upgrade our product range to meet their evolving needs. One such upgrade is the launch of FZS-FI Dlx model which is based on our customer’s feedback. The 3rd generation of the FZ 150 cc range has witnessed huge success as it proves to be the perfect combination of style and performance for the Indian youth. The launch of the FZS-FI Dlx variant will enhance the premium appeal of the FZ model range further as the all-LED lighting setup makes the FZS-FI Dlx & FZS-FI more modern, and the striking colour combinations on the FZS-FI Dlx with Led Flashers truly reflect the global spirit of Yamaha Racing.”
