Default New Yamaha bike spied. EDIT: FZ-X launched at Rs. 1.17 lakh

A test mule of what is believed to be a new Yamaha motorcycle has been caught testing. Reports suggest that it could be the XSR 250.

The test bike which was spotted on the Yamuna Expressway appeared to be an early development mule. As you can see in these images, the bodywork on the bike seems unfinished. The alloy wheels and front suspension appears to have been borrowed from the FZ series. The bike also has a fairly flat seat and the upright posture of the rider suggests that it could be designed with long distance cruising in mind.

While it is unclear as to what engine was powering this prototype, it has been speculated that it might have a 250cc engine from the FZ25. This engine puts out 21 BHP and 20 Nm and is paired with a 5-speed gearbox.

Another possibility is that the bike could be using the 149cc engine from the FZ and FZS. Which means it could be the Indian version of the retro-styled XSR 155.

Now this looks interesting. Hopefully they will bring it sooner. This will have a lot of buyers if designed and priced well.

Looking at the footpeg position and the way the rider is sitting, this doesn't seem like an XSR.

Maybe a smaller displacement cruiser for the SR line? They must have taken notice of the CB350's sales. I'm guessing this is going to be another royalty themed bike for the masses.

Yamaha FZ-X spied, borrows styling cues from XSR Models

A partially assembled FZ-X spied, gives a clear indication as how the front portion of the motorcycle will look like.

RX inspired body work with FZ's engine would do wonders for Yamaha, even the original XSR 155 with R15's engine will also find few takers, but not this contraption, IMO!

Maybe they should have kept it disguised. I think they're seriously ugly and misproportioned...

That rear splash guard looks out of place for a retro themed bike.

I'm sorry to be so negative on the first reply post, but look how well Honda has done a retro bike. This looks like someone tried to copy a Husquarna Svartpilen and made the seat bigger.

I think I like it.

Looks like a revival of the utility of the UJM design with some retro cues. Wish the tank was metal with some classic Yamaha stripes and lines instead of the ugly plain matte plastic. That would really give it some presence.

Or maybe it's a scrambler type pretender bike, going by the tyre tread pattern and the bash plate looking thing at the bottom.

But anyway, looking at the tall handlebar, relatively flat seat and peg position, and combined with that FZ15 engine, this might be a very comfortable and super usable bike.

Without the tech and hot performance, it's no XSR. Good thing they labeled it as FZ-X. Indonesia's XSR155 has more quality construction put into it than Yamaha India can probably afford to price it in our market.

Yamaha India is likely to launch the much-awaited FZ-X on June 18. It will use the same engine and underpinnings as the 149cc FZ range. Pricing expected to be around Rs 1.15 lakh.

Agree. A full splash guard makes much more sense. I dont think this split guard is good at keeping slush away from parts above the wheel.

And how much more would it cost ? Combined with effort for logistics through the chain, it would make more sense to have a single unit.

And slush, in cities, is D I R T Y.

It is old wine in new bottle. What I need is an FZ25 with at least 25 bhp power and the missing sixth cog.

Looks like nobody is anymore interested in this bike already.
Looking at the product, I wonder why would anyways will?

Found this video showing the exhaust note and slight glance at the tail end of FX-X.
The video was published a week ago.

The Yamaha FZ-X costs around Rs 11,000 more than the standard FZ.
