This year the Yamaha Motor India gave an announcement that they are going to roll out the Bharat Stage 6 (BS6) compliant two-wheelers by the month of November 2019.
Recently the leaks about the details of the bikes have been going around the internet about the recent FZ and FZ-S motorcycles.
The bikes are going to meet the stringent emission norms and the documents which have been leaked shows that the bikes are going to see a revision in the power figures.
The specs of the Yamaha FZ and the FZ-S
The images which have been leaked shows the technical specifications of the bikes are going to be unchanged, and the bikes are going to have the same 149 cc single-cylinder engine.
But Yamaha is going to make 12.2 bhp instead of the 13.1 bhp which is currently on offer. But the power arrives early at 7250rpm instead of the 8000 rpm of the current model.
For now, only the glimpses of the power figure are visible in the documents which have been leaked. But the chances are that the torque value is at a marginal reduction.
For example, the 2019 Yamaha FZ FI developed a 12.8 Nm of peak torque at the available 6000 rpm.
But the reduction in the performance is expected and is going to be visible across the several other two-wheeler, as manufacturers are going to be adding more equipment and are going to tweak the engines so that they can meet the emission norms.
The new update is going to be a huge cause of disappointment
But this update is going to be a huge disappointment to the fans of the FZ series because they had been looking for a powerful engine and the version of the 150cc street naked motorcycle.
The Yamaha FZ is positioned to be as the premium and the powerful sports bike, but a drop has been witnessed, especially in the power figures since 2014 as the second generation rolled then.
In the year of 2008, the first original model was introduced, and it produced 13.8 bhp and a torque of 13.6Nm from an engine of a 155 cc single-cylinder carburetted motor.
No changes are expected in the 2020 Yamaha FZ and the FZ-s because of the BS6 norms. In the year in the month of January, the changes included the new LED headlamp, a revised instrument console, reworked tank, a new step-up style single-seat and the new exhaust muffler which were a part f the new changes.
The bike currently retails at 98,680 (this is the ex-showroom Delhi price), but there is going to be a marginal hike which will be a 10 to 15 per cent increase in the prices. The popular selling will join the YZF-R15 V3.0 in the BS6 avatar next month.
