New SZ-R & SZ-X with New Colours and Kick Start

Yamaha has been known for its performance bikes across the globe and in India they are the only name which strikes the mind if you want a high performing bike. But, it tried its hands on a powerful commuter bike for the Indian market with its SZ series of bikes.

Yamaha has given a minor upgrade to the existing line up of SZ series. The SZ – R & SZ – X has been launched with new colour schemes and there is also an additional feature added. Guess what? Kick start feature has been added.The SZ – X is now available in three colour schemes which are Red, Black and Silver. The last colour mentioned here is really impressive and looks cool on this bike. Talking about the SZ – R, it is again the same three colours here as well. However for the SZ – R, the air scoops fitted onto the side of the fuel tanks are silver except the silver colour scheme where is gets replaced with a kinda opera gold colour.  When it comes to the SZ – X, it adapts single colour schemes all across and boasts of no separate colour for the air scoop.

I had already posted a comprehensive test ride review of SZ-R.  It is a decent performing bike and I like the way it really handled.
