The Yamaha FZ-S Version 2.0 highlights the style quotient with new colours and graphics. Design-wise, the rest of the model is pretty much the same as the standard new FZ which now gets a two piece seat, revised bikini faring, and new cooling shrouds beneath the fuel tank. The new FZ-S is powered by a newly designed air-cooled, 149cc single-cylinder engine which benefits from a closed loop fuel injection system. The same engine also powers the standard new FZ. Tweaked to deliver a better fuel efficiency, the engine now produces 13.1bhp @ 8000rpm of power and 12.8Nm @ 6000rpm of torque. For this new model, Yamaha is claiming a 14 per cent improvement in fuel economy. The bike features the same updated instrument console of FZ Version 2.0. It has a digital speedometer, odometer, trip meter and fuel gauge with LED indicators. There is nothing analogue on this instrument console. The illumination light is also orange in colour which could have been blue for a change.
Seating of Yamaha FZS Version 2.0 is similar to its sibling FZ16. The bike has rear-set foot pegs and wider new seat which makes it comfortable than before. The knees will automatically stick to its fuel tank offering nice hold of this bike. There is everything similar on this bike except for the handle bar which is positioned a bit lower than FZ16 which is hardly noticeable. This is done for more relaxed position while driving with perfect palm grip. There is no storage space in this Yamaha FZ S V2.0 but it has some standard safety features. Yamaha FZS Version 2.0 features a very powerful and effective suspension system. It has telescopic forks at its front with a mono shock absorber at the back providing a wheel travel of 120mm. It's a very comfortable bike and you can feel it as soon as you get on to it. If it's about braking, FZS confirms you a very safe and enjoyable ride with its braking system. The bike sports a disc brake of 267mm at its front and a drum brake of 130mm at its back. This brake system works adequately and you can always sense the control on this bike.
