In terms of suspension the bike gets monoshock suspension at the rear while the front gets telescopic front forks. A single-channel ABS is present on the bike as a standard safety measure.
Other features of the Yamaha FZ-X include a circular LED headlamp, USB charger, raised handlebars and a retro styled tank. The motorcycle gets a single seat instead of two split seats like the FZ. However, the top variant gets Bluetooth connectivity.
The motorcycle is offered in three colour variants of Matt Copper, Matt Black, and Metallic Blue.
In order to purchase the bike, interested buyers can book it through online sales platform while sitting at their homes. Alternatively, they can book the bike through Yamaha dealerships.
