India Yamaha Motors has added two new colours to the Yamaha FZS FI rear disc variant. The two new shades are-Matt Green and Darknight. Prices for the new configuration of the Yamaha FZS start at Rs 87,042 (ex-showroom, Delhi). Yamaha had introduced the FZS FI rear disc variant earlier this year in January in just Armada Blue colour option. The new paint options are available at an additional premium of Rs 1,000 over the existing colour. On the other hand, the difference in price between the Yamaha FZS FI rear disc variant with new colour options and the single disc variant is around Rs 4,000.
Aside from the new colour options and a rear disc brake, the bike sees no change on the mechanical front and continues to derive power from the 149 cc, single-cylinder, air-cooled, 2-valve, fuel-injected engine. In terms of power, the single-cylinder engine makes 13 bhp at 8,000 rpm along with peak torque of 12.8 Nm at 6,000 rpm. Transmission duties on the Yamaha FZS FI rear disc variant are carried over by a 5-speed gearbox.
Braking set-up on the rear disc variant comprises 282 mm disc brake at front and 220 mm disc unit at the back. It, however misses out on the anti-lock-braking system. In terms of proportions, it measures 790 mm high and has a 1,330 mm long wheelbase, while the ground clearance is 160 mm. The rear disc variant weighs around 133 kg (kerb weight), and gets a fuel tank with 12-litre capacity.
It also gets 10-spoke alloy wheels, borrowed from Yamaha FZ25 and comes shod with 100/80 R17 tyres at front and 140/60 R17 MRF Nylogrip units at the back. Suspension duties at front are handled by the 41 mm telescopic forks and a preload adjustable mono-shock at the back. In its segment, the bike goes up against TVS Apache RTR 160, Honda X-Blade, Suzuki Gixxer and Bajaj Pulsar NS 160.
