2014 Yamaha FZ FI version 2.0

Yamaha’s FZ was a good idea. The company got many things right including starting their engineering from the width of the rear tyre – which remains a startlingly popular and sticky Indian predilection. When it arrived, it had a plastic tank (cover) which was a new idea, styling that looked right (both for the time as well as its global design) and it also had the traditionally excellent Yamaha build quality as well. In short, the FZ was a promising motorcycle. Since then, it has done well too. It’s led Yamaha’s volumes back up the charts (though the scooters arguably have a vital role in this as well). It’s remained popular while the company lost its dynamic edge and embarked on an FZ-based adventure that involved mostly the fairing plastic, suffixes and stickers. Until now.

Yamaha’s FZ was a good idea. The company got many things right including starting their engineering from the width of the rear tyre – which remains a startlingly popular and sticky Indian predilection. When it arrived, it had a plastic tank (cover) which was a new idea, styling that looked right (both for the time as well as its global design) and it also had the traditionally excellent Yamaha build quality as well. In short, the FZ was a promising motorcycle. Since then, it has done well too. It’s led Yamaha’s volumes back up the charts (though the scooters arguably have a vital role in this as well). It’s remained popular while the company lost its dynamic edge and embarked on an FZ-based adventure that involved mostly the fairing plastic, suffixes and stickers. Until now.

Yamaha have (finally) rolled out the new FZ version 2.0 with a not-so-subtle FI suffix. At first glance, it looks like an FZ but subtly different – which is the way product updates have to be. You cannot make a dramatically different product without significant risk. In any case, it isn’t as if the FZ needed a dramatic style upgrade. What the version 2.0 does get, though, is more sculpting. I’m not averse to it but I’m not a fan of busy designs any way. All the body panels have more sculpting and the frame below the tank (sort of like a faux radiator shroud) is now a vastly more complex shape. But credit where credit is due, the bike does look sharper and fresher except for the all-covering overwrought splatter guard that suggests that Yamaha is out to ensure that Tide, Ariel et al will be out of business before the rains are over.

The big change is Yamaha’s new Blue Core technology. We have a detailed explanation up already so we will not go into it here . What it means is that the FZ engine is brand-new for all practical purposes. It gets a slightly smaller bore and hence displacement is down to 149cc. Yamaha have also worked the whole engine over leaving only the gearbox without updates. Even the final drive has changed with the rear sprocket gaining a tooth and becoming a 41 tooth unit.

The smaller displacement does mean that power has come down by roughly 1PS to 13.1PS at 8,000rpm while torque is down by roughly 0.8Nm to 12.8Nm at 6,000rpm. While that sounds like spec sheet suicide, the bike also loses 3.5kg, thanks to an all-new frame. So when you’re out riding, you won’t notice any drop in power, I promise.
