The Yamaha FZ-S always gets periodic attention from its maker because of the simple reason that it is the best seller in the portfolio. By attention we mean only things that are cosmetic. Last year Yamaha updated the FZ-S with new fenders and kick start lever. Apart from this, all the changes have been limited to new color themes. Once again, Yamaha has introduced some new color themes, four to be precise, in an attempt to keep the model reasonably fresh. The color themes are – Fearless Black (black with red accents) , Tempest Blue (blue with silver accents), Raging Red (red with black accents) and Glory Gold (black with gold accents). The FZ-S has been a strong seller in its class, thanks to the muscular looks and good riding characteristics. The humongous rear tire and location of the centre of gravity near the centre of mass make it a delight around corners. The FZ-S gets is 14PS of power from a 153cc carbureted engine which is connected to the wheel via a 5 speed gearbox. The sheer width of rear tire pulls down the fuel economy but it compensates for it by offering leach like grip. The 2013 Yamaha FZ-S is priced at Rs. 71,280 (ex-showroom Delhi).
