Gradually, all the makers are upgrading to smart connectivity features. Just a few days after Suzuki announced its Bluetooth connectivity system – ‘Ride Connect system’, Yamaha has launched its version of the technology called ‘Yamaha Motorcycle Connect X’.
It is a Bluetooth-based technology that enables riders to connect their mobiles with the bike by a ‘single touch’. The feature can be accessed using an app called ‘Yamaha Motorcycle Connect X’, available on both Google Play Store and Apple’s iOS app store for free.
The smart connectivity system offers features such as geo-location, wherein the turn indicators will light up for 10 seconds, hazard lights, riding history, parking record, and E-lock (that locks your motorcycle to prevent theft). Apart from that, it gets a feature called ‘Answer Back’, which, upon engaging, makes the bike blink indicators and sound the horn.
This technology has made its debut on the FZS-Fi Dark Knight BS6 variant which is now priced at Rs 1,07,700 ex-showroom Delhi – a hike of Rs 2500.
What is exciting is that even the existing customers of the entire FZ BS6 range can upgrade to this technology by purchasing the device as an extra accessory (from 1st November 2020) at any Yamaha Authorized Dealerships near you.
