The Yamaha FZ S V3.0 FI is all about style, class, and practicality for modern riders. However, the subtle innovations in the design urge you to get the best performance out of it.

The Yamaha FZ S V3.0 FI comes in five variants. They are the FZ S V3.0 FI Dark night, FZ S V3.0 FI STD, FZ S V3.0 FI Dark night Bluetooth, FZ S V3.0 FI Vintage & FZ S V3.0 FI Vintage Bluetooth.

Variants and colors

Yamaha updated the color palette on the FZ-S Fi that is offered in two variants- Standard and DLX. While the standard model gets two colors- Matte Red and Matte Blue, the DLX version is available in three colors. These are Metallic Black, Metallic Deep Red and Solid Gray. 


The design of the Yamaha FZ-S has been widely unchanged recently, retaining the heavy fuel-tank with faux intakes and a low-set, head lamp for a radical look. It even gets an engine cowl, step-up seat, and a side-slung exhaust. The FZ-S is offered in a DLX variant that sports different graphics, golden-colored alloy wheels, as well as a dual-tone seat. However, this dual-tone seat is only available in Metallic Black and Metallic Deep Red colors.


The Yamaha FZS-Fi is powered by a BS6-compliant, 149cc, single-cylinder engine that is air-cooled. This motor is tuned to churn out 12.2bhp at 7,250rpm and 13.3Nm of peak torque at 5,500rpm. It comes mated to a five-speed gearbox. 

The Yamaha FZ has been around for quite more than a decade, and the current version is known as the V3.0 by Yamaha. The only significant mechanical modification is the addition of a single-channel ABS, but Yamaha had little choice when April 2019 rolled around.

Specifications & Features

The majority of the FZ’s bodywork has been overhauled with components inspired by the larger FZ25. While it keeps its muscular, cutting shape, the massive fuel tank and shrouds that extend down towards the front of the engine give it a much larger appearance.

 The bike in the photos is the FZ-S, which features chrome trim around the fake air intake and vents on the front of the tank and a belly pan. Between the basic FZ and the FZ-S, these are practically the only differences, and they cost Rs 2,000 more.

The hardware remains unaltered too and the Yamaha FZS-Fi retains the telescopic front forks and preload-adjustable rear mono-shock that handle suspension duties. Meanwhile, braking is done by single discs on both wheels while the safety net includes a single-channel ABS.


By 2021, Yamaha increased the price of the BS6 FZS-FI V3. It has a starting price of Rs 1 08,200, which is a $1,000 increase over its predecessor. Smartphone connectivity was added to the 2021 FZS FI V3.0 as standard equipment across all colour variations
