Yamaha FZS v3.0 BS6
Yamaha FZS v3 sports a familiar style. It has all the characteristics of a high-end nude sport, including a large sculpted fuel tank.
The front part comes with an LED headlamp with separate bulbs for high beam and low beam. In addition, the halogen indicators are located in the high position.
By moving the side section, it continues to maintain a muscular presence on the road.
However, new elements like brighter side panels, a 3D emblem and new colors help it feel a little more special.

In addition, the rear part remains unchanged. It comes with the same halogen tail light and a large grab bar.

Yamaha FZ-S FI is powered by a 149cc SOHC single cylinder engine. It can generate maximum power of 12.4 PS at 7,250 rpm and maximum torque of 13.3 Nm at 5,500 rpm. In addition, it is associated with a 5-speed gearbox with a fuel tank capacity of 12.8 liters.
The BS6 iteration produces 0.8PS less power but 0.5Nm more torque. Since the RPM has been reduced slightly, performance should be more impactful than the last BS4 iteration.
Nonetheless, all Yamaha BS6 motorcycles have a slight reduction in the powertrain numbers.
