Yet another impact of the BS IV emission norms being active has been witnessed on Yamaha which discontinued the production of its FZ series motorcycles consisting carburettor technology. Since the engines of these bikes were compliant to BS III norms, they didn’t match the requirements of the new rules. However, the newer versions consisting the fuel-injection system will be sold in full swing which are the FZ, FZ-S and Fazer.
The new generation FZ series come with Blue core technology which makes the mill run without making much of mess with the air. In terms of combustion and fuel supply, this technology helps the engine make optimum use of gasoline resulting in 14 percent hike in the mileage. Albeit, the power delivery was recorded quite high from the carburettor mill over the FI tech, the refinement of the new ones do no let this drawback come in their way.
After the FZ was launched, the company has earned a lot of points and customers due to the much-loved typical naked bike look with muscular stance and, such chunky wheels were first of its kind in this segment. The FZ, FZ-S and its quarter-faired counterpart Fazer, yield 13.3 PS of power at 8,000 RPM and 12.8 Nm, at 6,000 RPM. For soaking the bumps, the front section consists of telescopic forks while the rear comes with the mono shock. Disc brake at front and drum at the rear do the stopping duty.
