Yamaha FZS series has been for a really long time. It was first launched in late 2008, with a carburetor engine version. It had a engine displacement of 153cc and a power output of 10.2 KW.
In the 2012, the fzs series got some upgrades on some of its aspects. It still had the same carburetor engine with 5-speed gearbox, but this time it had some more stylish graphics options, and better grab rails, and some really minor changes.
The biggest change came in the second version of Yamaha Fzs, when Yamaha redesigned the entire bike. Yamaha FZs V2 had the tag FI in its name, cause it was powered by a completely new 149cc fuel injected engine, and the power output dropped to 9.7 KW.
The second generation Yamaha FZs had some big cosmetic changes. It had split seats, a wider body, and many more.
The third generation of Yamaha FZs was rumored to get launched in the 2019, and some spy pictures on the online made this rumor more hyped up. And finally in this middle of January, 2019, Yamaha Motorcycles India has launched the anticipated Yamaha FZs Version 3 in India.
This version 3 of Yamaha FZS is equipped with some major changes. The major changes are:
- Bosch single channel ABS as standard option
- Dual Disc brake standard on all variants
- New LED headlight with separate housing for beams
- Newly designed fuel tank
- Sliding engine kill switch
- Mudguard from Yamaha FZ25
- All-digital LCD meter as instrument panel
- Newly designed unibody seat
- Newly designed sub-frame
- Higher handlebar position
- Single aluminum grab rail
- Newly designed chrome air intake
- An under cowl, or in other words, engine fairing
- Rear mud guard.
Yamaha FZs Version 3 carries over the same engine from the version 2, the same 149cc single cylinder Fuel injected engine with blue core technology. The engine produces 13.o BHP of power and 12.8 NM of torque.
The cosmetic and the aesthetic changes in the newly designed bike is eye catching. In India, it is priced higher is a good amount than the previous generation, Yamaha FZS FI V2. The bike is available in two variants, Yamaha FZ V3 & Yamaha FZs V3.
We still don’t know when this bike will get launched or the price in Bangladesh, but we hope soon ACI Motors Ltd will unveil details about it to the bikers,
