We shared this news of Yamaha updating their FZ series with mild updates and an introduction of a new orange color to the FZ-S, now the company is refreshing its big brother Fazer as we had predicted, however, there are no new colors introduced. Moreover, we had reported FZ’s updates on 25th April whereas the combined (FZ + Fazer) official information reached us a couple of days back only. Check out what the New Fazer 2012 has to offer after the jump.
New Yamaha Fazer 2012 version comes with the following changes:
- Changed Grab Rail: The new grab bar looks more useable and hopefully the grip would have improved. According to Yamaha, this grab rail will also act as some kind of a support to the pillion rider.
- Longer and Wider Pillion seat: This is one of the most important changes in the new 2012 FZ series and we hope it has ample amount of space for the pillion.
- Large & Wide rear fender: The rear fender has also been lengthened and widened, which do take away a few points on the look factor, but promises to prevent mud splashing through those huge rear tyres.
- New Chain Protector: Yamaha also provides new chain protector on their new Fazer. Basically the lower part which was naked has been covered by a stylish cover as well which is definitely a good step towards safety of people wearing loose clothing.
Price: 2012 Fazer will bear a price tag of Rs 76,380 ex showroom Delhi
What is with this torque figure of new FZ series of bikes? On the official website, these new variants are claimed to be producing 13.6Nm of peak torque in place of the 14Nm of the earlier variants. Is this a step to increase mileage of these FZ series of bikes? It remains to be seen if this has any significant adverse effect on the performance of these bikes.
Colors: New 2012 Fazer would be available in 4 colors: Competition White, Black Cyber Green, Lava Red, Midnight Black
Yamaha would soon be launching a comprehensive campaign to promote these new 2012 bikes. We would be able to see John Abraham, company’s brand ambassador taking the center stage obviously along with the new bikes on the various promotional activities planned by the company on the web, TV, print etc.
