Yamaha launches limited edition FZ-S and Fazer
With the festival season around the corner Yamaha has launched a special edition series of its most successful offering for our market, the FZ-S and Fazer. The Japanese two-wheeler manufacturer has given the bikes a cool cosmetic makeover by offering them in a new shade of battle green color which is a mattish shade of green. Along with the new colour the limited edition bike would also feature all new graphics to add to the bikes overall exterior appeal.
Speaking on the occasion, Roy Kurian, Vice President – Sales and Marketing, Yamaha Motor India Sales Pvt. Ltd. said, “Our strategic intent is to provide customers with stylish new variants of the FZ series to match his personal style. These bikes have been instrumental in catapulting our sales to an all new level. We have kept the essence of FZ series bikes intact while altering the aesthetics to exemplify the masculine feeling these tough machines are known for. We are confident that these variants too will be an instant hit among the biking enthusiasts.”
The changes on the limited edition are only cosmetic and no changes have been made on the mechanicals. The bikes are powered by the same 153cc, air cooled, 4-stroke mill producing 14.2PS @ 7,500 rpm and maximum torque of 13.6 Nm at 6000 rpm and are mated to a 5-speed transmission. This isn’t the first time that Yamaha has launched a special edition of the FZ-S and Fazer and this seems an attempt to boost its sales figure with the 'limited edition' moniker, adding that little bit of exclusivity to a tried and tested product from time to time. The limited edition FZ-S has been priced at Rs. 74,385 whereas the Fazer would be made available for Rs. 79,485 (both prices are ex-showroom Delhi).
