Over the last few years, the demand for retro style bikes with modern features has increased in the Indian market. In this sequence, Japan’s leading two-wheeler manufacturer Yamaha is set to launch its new Neo-Retro style bike FZD-X in the Indian market. The company recently announced the launch of its new bike market on June 18. Meanwhile, bookings for this upcoming bike have been launched at select sellers across the country.
However, the company did not mention the name of the upcoming bike in an invitation sent to the media. But this bike is only FZ-X. According to reports published in Autocar, vendors are unofficially booking for this retro-style bike. While some sellers take 5 thousand to 10 thousand rupees to book this bike, some sellers pay just Rs 1,000 as a booking amount.

It is reported that sellers currently charge this booking amount for the FZ and FZS models, which will be converted after the FJ-X release. The company is expected to release the bike for Rs 1.15 lakh and this price will be for the non-Bluetooth version, which may be a bit more expensive than the Bluetooth enabled version. Probably the delivery of this bike will start from August.
Although the exact images of the bike have not been revealed yet, based on the spy images, the company is said to have provided LED projector headlamps. It was first seen on MT-15. It receives circular split LED daytime running lights along with the Grab Train for the Pylon Rider.
The bike is powered by a 149cc single cylinder air-cooled engine that produces 12.2 hp of power. In addition, the smartphone also offers Bluetooth connectivity and other sophisticated features. The company has given this bike a neo-retro look that young people will definitely like.
