Yamaha FZS V3.0 Unveiled

3rd April 2019
"Take your time, make your mind and seize the opportunity!!"

Are you an FZ series fan? Do you like the wide tyres and muscular tanks and how it perfectly corners the turnings? FZ V3.0 could be your next dream bike with the technologies that are a step forward and designed like never before.

New styling

The bikes obtain an efficient body but maintain the sharp and muscular summary of the FZ series. A wider front-end posture is an outcome of wider panels and side coverings around the tank. The front-end of the tank also supports a faux air vent-like grille structure. The motorcycles also drop their split seat arrangement for a single unit that is larger and better lengthened than before. Also, large one-piece aluminum grab handle to pillion comfort is a new accessory that it gets. Rider comfort gets enhanced on the new bikes too, as Yamaha has also decided to use a new handlebar that’s a little bit raised compared to the previous model’s and will allow for a more erect riding position. The switchgear and dual-cable throttle also appear to be taken from the FZ25. Priory, the FZ series last received an update over four years ago. However, an aspect that is omitted out on an update is the powertrain.


Both bikes endure being powered by the same engine on the second generation restatements of the bike. The 149cc, air-cooled, two-valve, single-cylinder motor makes 13.2hp at 8,000rpm and 12.8Nm of torque at 6,000rpm. The previous-generation FZ was one of the lightest motorcycles in its class but happens to categorized as the least powerful. However, with an increased kerb weight of 137kg (132 kg before), the FZ no longer has the weight benefit it earlier did and has the lowest power-to-weight ratio in its segment.

Belongs to the tradition

In case you were speculating the differences between the FZ and the FZS are – the S variant has a belly pan while the old version of FZ doesn't. The FZS also has chrome-finished outlines on the faux air intake-like vents on the tank, giving the bike a more sophisticated exterior. Apart from these other slight differences are made. The only other thing that sets the two bikes spaced out is the color options. The new FZ is available in two color schemes – Metric Black and Racing Blue – while the FZS comes in three colors – Matt Black, Dark Matt Blue and Grey, and Cyan Blue. A piece of good news for the avid matte color fans.


The most noteworthy apprise is the accumulation of a Bosch single-channel ABS unit. The bikes also obtain a new LCD instrument cluster that has now gone from a positive mode LCD to a negative mode one. This means that light colored letters appear on a darker background instead of the opposite, as observed in the older version of this bike. The new LED headlight is redolent as one of the features we can see in FZ25, hopefully, provides a higher beam. The addition of ABS allows the FZ and FZS to comply with the upcoming mandatory ABS norms that come into effect from April 1, 2019.



There is still some time left for the launch of FZ V3.0 in Nepal. Take your time and seize the opportunity!
