One other take a look at mule of the new-gen Yamaha FZ V3 was not too long ago noticed in India. The newest pictures reveal a near-production unit, and this time round we additionally get to see the entrance part of the motorbike. Whereas the picture shouldn’t be very clear, the bike does appear to return with a brand new sleeker headlamp with a separate LED daytime working lamp. The profile, nevertheless, is way clearer in these pictures, in comparison with the earlier ones, and we get to see a bunch of latest components as effectively.
As an example, the brand new Yamaha FZ V3 comes with a redesigned gasoline tank, which seems to be a bit bigger now with new sharper-looking tank extensions beneath. One other main change, in fact, is the brand new single-piece seat, in contrast to the two-piece seat within the outgoing mannequin, which is able to result in a extra snug seating place and also will be extra pillion-friendly. The bike additionally comes with an up to date tail part with new single piece grab-rail and revised taillamp. Amongst different options, the bike now additionally includes a new tyre-hugger, a brand new beefier exhaust pipe with twin tone black and gunmetal remedy. The alloy wheels are additionally new and in addition new 10-spoke alloy wheels, which appear like 17-inch items.
Different adjustments that we count on to see will embody a brand new instrument cluster, probably an all-digital LED unit just like the one on the brand new YZF R15 V3 that was launch early this 12 months. Come April 2019, all new two-wheelers with displacement equal to or greater than 125 cc will compulsorily have to have ABS and going by this, we consider Yamaha will supply ABS as customary fitment proper from the launch itself. After all, it may very well be a single-channel unit to maintain the prices down.
Powering the brand new bike would be the similar 149 cc single-cylinder, gasoline injected motor that powers the present mannequin.

It is potential that the corporate may launch the bike then.
