Yamaha FZ-X design and specification
When I first saw the pics online at the launch event of the new FZ-X the bike looked a bit confused but in reality, it doesn’t feel all that bad at all. In terms of build quality, it promises quite a lot more. The Yamaha FZ-X comes with three colour options which are matte copper, metallic blue and my favourite matte black.
The bike has generous use of metal all around instead of plastic, like the retro sports classic looking fuel tank front fender and the besh plate are all made of metal. in the front FZ-X has a very unique looking round bi-functional led headlamp setup, it has one led bulb in the centre for a high beam as well as a low beam also the round led DRL does add a distinguished touch. The tail lamp Yamaha say was an inspiration from the rx100 and it does look as such. The speedo console is newly designed and now it gets Bluetooth connectivity that displays call SMS and email alerts along with other bike statistics. Apart from this Yamaha FZ-X comes with an all-new ribbed pattern seat. It is perfectly cushioned which feels not too soft, not too hard. Regarding suspension, we get 41 mm telescopic forks upfront and a seven-step adjustable rear mono-shock. In terms of tires, we get radial block pattern tires from MRF with a 140 section rear tire.

Talking about the riding ergonomics of Yamaha FZ-X, the ripped pattern seat offers just the right kind of comfort it’s not too soft not too hard and it is absolutely super comfy. the raised handlebar and the forward set footpegs and the refined engine makes it even more desirable. The Seat height of FZ-X is 810 mm, if you are five five you can easily ride this bike and the complete bike Weight is 139 only which is great for new or all kinds of riders.
