As seen from the leaked document, both motorcycles will carry forward the same 149cc single-cylinder BS-VI engine, which now produces 12.1bhp at 7,250rpm. This is 1bhp lower than the power output of the current BS-IV engine on both motorcycles. This will continue to be paired with a five-speed gearbox as standard.

The leaked document doesn't showcase the torque output of the two motorcycles, however, we expect it to remain unchanged from the current engine. Apart from the new engine specifications, no other changes are expected from the two motorcycles.

Thoughts On The BS-VI Compliant Yamaha FZ & FZ-S Motorcycles

The BS6-compliant Yamaha FZ and FZ-S motorcycles are expected to receive only an updated engine, while everything else remains unchanged. The new BS-VI compliant motorcycles are said to go on sale in India sometime by end-2019 and will receive a marginal price hike over the current model.

The two motorcycles will continue to rival the likes of the Bajaj Pulsar 160NS, KTM Duke 125, Suzuki Gixxer 155 and the TVS Apache RTR 160 4V in the Indian market.
