2014 FZ colors

After almost 6 years since its Launch , Yamaha has decided to update their popular motorcycles The FZ anf FZ-S , providing some thorough upgrades . The new changes see the motorcycles being taken off some of its bhp , while getting a boost in fuel economy . Yamaha states that the new bikes will be using their new Blue Core technology , which aims to produce more efficient combustion , and better mileage . Both cosmetic and mechanical upgrades have been provided on the bikes .

Cosmetically , The 2014 FZ and FZ-S remains similar to the numerous Test mules that had been spotted earlier .The new changes include :

  • Split Seats
  • New Tail lamp
  • An all new Digital Console with Eco-meter
  • New rear Tyre hugger
  • New indicators

Mechanically too the bikes get fair enough changes. The Engine has become more advanced providing fuel Injection , advanced combustion chamber,  lighter moving parts to name a few . However the  displacement has been brought down to 149cc and so has the performance output, which is bit of a disappointment . The new bikes doesn’t come with Rear Disc brakes either.

The 2014 FZ V2 now produces 13.1 ps of power at 8000rpm ( a decrease in  1 ps ) and 12.8 Nm of Torque at 6000rpm ( reduction of almost 0.8 Nm) . However Yamaha claims that the reduction in power output will not affect its performance . The Bike is now officially the lightest motorcycle in its segment and  the cheapest to come with Fuel Injection.
