Immensely popular with Indian bikers all the way through almost 10 years from the day it was launched in India, and winning over a million hearts, it was crowned to become the ‘lord of the streets' by the collective culture of the country's motorcycling."
He added, "While its best seller features like build and appearance, superior engine technology, fuel mileage and suspension are retained, the new additions will excite the present and new customers."
By adding the rear disc brake to the 2018 Yamaha FZ-S FI, the motorcycle's stability and control are expected to improve and adds more flair when compared to its rivals.
