Yamaha Oct 2022 Price Hike
Last known price hike was at the beginning of August 2022. That one was a comprehensive hike that affected most of Yamaha’s portfolio except for drum brake equipped models of Fascino. Yamaha October 2022 hike doesn’t affect a lot of products. Only a handful.
Yamaha’s FZ-FI, FZS-FI and FZS-FI Deluxe are exempt from this price hike. All these motorcycles are powered by a 149cc single-cylinder engine making 12.2 bhp of power and 13.3 Nm of torque. This is a fairly basic engine that only gets air-cooling and is coupled to a 5-speed gearbox. Range starts from Rs. 1,13,700 for FZ-FI (ex-sh, Delhi).
We have FZ-X, which is a neo-retro derivative of FZ-FI that we covered in the previous paragraph. It is a visually different machine from FZ-FI and its variations. FZ-X gets a price hike of Rs. 1,000. Prices now start from Rs. 1,33,900 which used to start from Rs. 1,32,900. This price hike for FZ-X accounts for an increment of 0.75%.
