With attractive discounts and other benefits, Yamaha is looking forward to maximize sales during the festive season. Latest discount offers have been announced for Yamaha 150 cc bikes – FZ-S FI and FZ FI. As per the festive offer banner displayed on Yamaha India website, FZ-S FI and FZ FI are available with discount of up to Rs 8,280.
Yamaha has sweetened the deal further by offering low down payment of just Rs 4,999. This will be helpful to potential customers who may not have adequate cash to make a large down payment. Furthermore, Yamaha is offering rate of interest of just 6.9% on the two-wheeler loan taken by customers. Standard interest rate on two-wheeler loans is usually in the range of 10-15%.
Talking about the price of these bikes, FZ FI retails at Rs 96,180 whereas FZ-S FI is available at Rs 98,180. Difference of Rs 2000 is because FZ-S FI comes with premium styling, as can be seen with its chrome infused components, dual-tone colour, and sporty engine cowl.
FZ-S also gets three colour options – Matte Black, Dark Matte Blue and Grey & Cyan Blue. In comparison, FZ is offered in Racing Blue and Metric Black options. Apart from these changes, both bikes are almost identical.
Discounts and benefits on FZ-S FI and FZ FI will help the company to clear existing stock of BS-IV models. Yamaha will be launching its BS-VI compliant motorcycles from November 2019 onwards. Yamaha’s updated scooter range will start arriving from January 2019.
From the customer’s perspective, this is the perfect time to buy FZ-S FI or FZ FI. Prices will increase after BS-VI models are launched, so this may be the last opportunity to grab these bikes at their lowest possible prices. Motofumi Shitara, Chairman, Yamaha Motor India Group of Companies had earlier said that prices of BS-VI Yamaha motorcycles are likely to increase by around 10-15%.
Both FZ-S FI and FZ FI are powered by a 149 cc, air cooled, SOHC engine that delivers 13.2 PS @ 8,000 rpm and 12.8 Nm @ 6,000 rpm. Engine is mated to a constant mesh, 5-speed gearbox. Other common features include LED headlight, negative LCD instrument cluster, mono rear suspension, two-level split seat, and ABS.
