Bookings open for the Yamaha FZ XPosted On: April 27, 2022 By : Ashmita KC
Yamaha is finally set to launch its most-awaited motorcycle–the FZ X–in Nepal. Since its launch in India last year, the 150cc crossover motorcycle has been creating a lot of buzz among Nepali fans, largely on account of its retro scrambler styling, features, and affordable price.
MAW Enterprises Pvt. Ltd, the sole authorised distributor of Yamaha motorcycles in Nepal, is readying to roll out the new bike here. Bookings for the FZ X have been made open at Rs 25 thousand. The price of the bike has been set at Rs 4.27 lakh.
Design and features
The FZ X is Yamaha’s first bike in the FZ-series to don a classic neo-retro look, making it completely different from the others in the series. At the front, the bike gets a round-shaped LED headlamp with DRLs that provide great visibility at night, and at the rear, the bike features a circular LED taillight.
The bike comes equipped with a stylish LCD instrument screen that displays the tachometer as an analogue-looking circular dial. The frame has an under cowl that enhances the neo-retro look and also protects the engine on all types of terrain.
The bike comes with a two-level, slip-resistant, tuck-and-roll seat that is comfy and sturdy.
The bike features Yamaha’s Y-Connect app that tracks your fuel consumption, suggests maintenance recommendations, shows the last-parking location, and also features a fuel gauge and a clock.
Powering the FZ X is 149cc, fuel-injected Bluecore engine–mated to a five-speed manual transmission–that produces a maximum power of 12.2 hp at 7250 rpm and a torque of 13.3 Nm at 5500 rpm. The bike provides an average mileage of 45-50 kmpl.
