Yamaha FZ Midnight Edition Launched

by Deepak on October 14, 2010

Much to the thought of the people, Yamaha has launched its latest improved model of FZ/FZ-S called “Midnight”. Midnight is an improved version of the much popular versions viz. FZ and FZ-S and it is a limited edition model up for grabs. Last year Yamaha launched the special edition of the FZ series in white color and this time they came up with a spunky color pattern called “Midnight”.

It is a cool looking bike with its black color body and golden colored alloys. The model also sports golden stickers of FZ on the tank. Midnight also sports some use of cool graphics on the side panel of the bike and also a sticker which says “Midnight Special”, this adds a spunky life to the bike.

Yamaha has only altered the look and not the technicality of the special limited edition bike. Also, Midnight edition will only be available during the festive season.

Yamaha has launched this bike with a view to capture the market during the festive season. Although there are no alterations as regards engine performance, the new color scheme has made the bike look stylish and attractive. Now that the edition is finally available, we are sure to see many of these new FZ’s on road.

Is Yamaha doing what Hero Honda did? “New bikes” but not really new bikes. New stickers. But I am not really angry this time because they put some golden alloy wheels which is really good.

Good Info.
I dont think Yamaha is goin HH way but as promised before they are tring to atleast introduce new colour combinations into the bike which I feel is impressive. People went mad buying the limited edition white colour and I m definately sure this colour will be a favorite for a large crowd. When Fz-s was released in yellow and red, few bought it and suddenly they brought in the green and blue & it was really intresting for new buyers to choose from the colour options. But of course now a days bike manufacturers in India try weird colour combinations first and attempt sales boost. Eager buyers fall trap to it and when new colours roll out the same eager buyer repent of not waiting knowing the new colour being rolled out. HH did the same with the tasmanian green and yellow.
why cant they give a wide range of colour combinations at one shot if its feasible..?
I remember HH passion plus had 11 different combinations to choose from….
Bike manufacturers have learnt to use paints vibrantly rather than R&D on motor or design aspect…

Yaar overall bike is looking cool but yamaha has its own identity so plz yamaha ko vapas nikal laooooooooo

Its a color scheme taken right from the R1 (2010 version)…black body and gold alloy wheels…great combination and excellent graphics…hope the same scheme comes up in Fazer…would be much more attractive than seen on FZ…

This is definately better than the white-blue limited edition color scheme launched during the last festive season…

sOur_wOrm1es October 14, 2010 at 7:36 pm

sExyyyyyyyyyyyy……
hope that if someone who wants to replace their golden rim later on due to some reason should get a golden one and not have to settle for something else cos it was limited edition….
imagine one rim golden and other black……..
getting my black green fz-s on dasshera after waiting for 2 months due to shortage
then again MIDNIGHT is……

It looks very nice, but why Yamaha or Honda are not launching higher capacity bikes like above 200 cc? Woul like to see some 250 cc and above bikes. Yamaha was leading when it had RD350 but now they are limiting to 150 cc.

RAM RATAN YADAV October 14, 2010 at 8:06 pm

GOT IMPRESSED WITH GOLD COLOUR ALLOY WHEELS AND NEW GRAPHIC DESIGN……….
YAMAHA SHOULD CONCENTRATE MORE ON DESIGN AND MILAGE PROVIDING STRONG AND POWERFUL ENGINE……. IF THIS BIKE IS PROVIDED WITH COMPANY FITTED BACK DISC BREAK & SPLIT SEAT (A BIT BIG COMPARED TO CURRENT ONE) TOO; WILL PROVIDE AN EXTRA ADVANTAGE…… ANY WAYS BYKE LOOKS MARVOLUS. I AM GREAT FAN OF 2 BYKE MANUFACTURERS…..
1) DESH KI JAAN, DESH KI NABZ, POORNATAYA BHARATIYA- APNA BAJAJ, THE MAKER OF INDIAN PULSE——————–>PULSAR>>>>>>>>>>>>>>oVo
&
2) INTERNATIONAL TWO WHEELER GIANT AND ONE OF THE LEADING COMPANY—————YES———YAMAHA>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>oVo

I heard that there were only 1000 bikes made and each bike is number with a manufacturing tag… something like 1/1000. 2/1000. true or not yet to be known…

arun October 14, 2010 at 9:53 pm

this upgraded version is good looks wise but buying this bike is an utterwaste because the on road price tag of this bike is Rs.80,000 investing such a huge amount of money on this bike completely rubbish one can go for Karizma r or pulsor 220 by adding an extra amount of RS.5000-6000 those machines are more powerful than fz and at the same time a great value for money product i think yamaha are playing games with indian people

I always felt that Yamaha had its own crowd and HH had its own. As per my views about HH, they always promoted mileage bikes(splendor & passion types) with flashy stickering so that it would look stylish. Whereas Yamaha on the other hand always promoted performance bikes (R series and FZ). Both have done good in their ways, but coming to the midnight version of FZ – Seems like Yamaha is copying the strategy of HH with the promotions with flashy stickering..
I always felt, Yamaha fans would buy bikes looking at the performance rather than the stickering jobs.

Cheers!
Ash

Sorry but I don’t understand the mentality of people who ride funny-looking expensive bikes like this.

We have a guy in our locality who rides a bike that looks like a preying mantis. Something similar to this: http://www.brian.net/pictures/Motorcycles/Paint%20Jobs/slides/Green%20Praying%20Mantis%20Bike.html

What are the reasons that make you want to buy the Yamaha FZ?

No, the previous one, exists in the market is more better than this. Might the young college going students like this, but probably not for us like a man of age group of 35. (At least I didn’t like.) The golden wheels, in the newer condition will look so good, but after a few months , specially after the end of monsoon period, in the city like our Kolkata, it will look like a mess. Black wheels are the Only Solutions.

Way to go Yamaha.. they quickly learned what works with majority of bike-enthusiasts in India.. no points for guessing.. it’s stickering skills & changing color combinations.. Yamaha has far exceeded expectations in this department.

YES! YAMAHA…………
THIS IS THE LORD OF THE STREET IN ALL MOST EVERY EXPECT……..

FZ SERIES GIVES 0-60 IN 5.2 SEC…. QUICK PICKUP IN 150 CC SEGMENTS…
HANDLING AND CONTROL IS AWESOME …..
MILEAGE IS 45 TO 50 KMPL GOOD FOR FZ SERIES, AFTER HAVING REDIAL TYRE,… ETC..!!

WHICH OF THE 150 CC BIKE IN INDIA HAVING REDIAL TYRE..? (EXCEPT FZ SERIES)
WHO EVER TALKING ABT MILEAGE (IN 150 CC BIKE) JUST PUT REDIAL TYRE IN UR BIKE N CHECK HOW MUCH U GET THE MILEAGE THEN LET ME KNOW THE MILEAGE OF UR BIKE ?

STILL THERE IS MORE QUESTION TO ASK BUT THIS MUCH IS FINE FOR THIS TIME…

( ONE THING CANT MAKE WHOLE PACKAGE BAD..REMEMBER ? )

OVERALL FORM ALL EXPECT FZ BIKE IS REALLY VERY GOOD….

DONOT WHY PPL ALWAYS TRY TO POINT OUT, MOSTLY NEGATIVE POINT OF BIKE ONLY…. ( ANY BIKE BRAND OF INDIA )
YAMAHA FZ- MILEAGE
HH- PERFORMANCE N BRAKING
TVS VIBRATION
BAJAJ HANDLING N CONTROL IN HIGH SPEED
SUZUKI LOW PICK UP N BUILD QUALITY
HONDA PERFORMANCE N CONTROL

AND SO ON…..

BUT GUYS EVERY BIKE (BRANDS) ROCK IN INDIA IN THERE ON WAYZZZ….

ANALYSIS THE WHOLE PACKAGE OF ANY BIKE….!!

COLOUR SCHEME IS THE MARKETING STRATEGY TO EXCITE THE BUYERS TO BUY IT, DONT TAKE IT OTHERWISE…

If they are offering it at the same price then it is an added asset to the customer and if not then it is really not worth it since it is a limited edition and procuring parts for the same in future would really be a pain

I feel that Yamaha has started to understand the Indian Market just like Hero Honda.

Ram: From when did Hero Honda understand Indian Consumer’s? Doing a bling sticker cum paint job & letting the old model as limited edition? Or just plonking the old Karizma’s engine with a PGM-FI & an oil cooler & selling as ZMR at a premium price point? Not to offend Hero Honda in any way, Yamaha is better in R&D anyday.
