First ever uncamouflaged 2019 Yamaha FZ ABS pics reveal the motorcycle’s design and confirms a few changes. Story updated with new pics…
So, the cat is out of the bag! After a lot of camouflaged spyshots, Yamaha’s upcoming FZ has been busted in a few pics (two shared by Rushlane). Let us quickly list the important bits we notice…
The 2019 FZ Changes
- ABS – The most important change is the safety net of Antilock Braking System as that black encoder ring on the front tyre signifies. However, it is still not known whether it will be a single-channel unit or a dual channel ABS that the R15 has received recently (details).
- Headlamp – A new headlamp which is inspired from the FZ25 has made way. It features LED lamps in the lower part but what is that Platina-like pilot lamp doing up there – it doesn’t gel well with the aggressive design!
- Redesigned Tank – The tank, which was the main USP of FZ when it was launched, gets a new shape. It appears to be bulkier in design and gets new air scoops. It also gets newly designed tank extensions just below the tank.
- Meter Console – Though not visible in these pics but up there is a new console which, again, has taken inspiration from the FZ25. It also houses the side blinkers.
2019 Yamaha FZ ABS Pics
Apart from these, based on the earlier spy pics, we have already discussed the eight changes the motorcycle is expected to get. You can check that list here.
Three colours have been revealed in these pics and it also confirms that dual-colours will be a part of the arsenal. What remains to be seen is the power upgrade the motorcycle could get because in the current lot, it remains one of the least powerful motorcycles and definitely needs a upward revision.
This probably also, kind of, reinstates our belief that the 21st January event in Bangalore (for which we have already got our invites), is the 2019 FZ v3’s launch and price reveal. So, how do you like the new FZ…?
