    Buoyed by the success of the deluxe and premium segment bikes, India Yamaha Motor Pvt Ltd today unveiled three new bikes – SZ, SZ-X and YBR 125 in a bid to give Indian masses the Yamaha edge of quality, performance, & design. Lending a spark to the occasion was Bollywood hunk and Yamaha’s brand ambassador to India, John Abraham, a passionate biker himself.

    Commenting on the occasion Mr. Yukimine Tsuji, CEO & MD, India Yamaha motor pvt ltd said : the launch of SZ, SZ-x and YBR 125 is in line with Yamaha’s true commitment to provide world-class products to its customers, SZ, SZ-X and YBR 125 models have been designed and engineered down to the finest details for maximum comfort for the rider. Ideal combinations of power, comfort & style, SZ & SZ-X have been designed with a strong focus on quality and performance. YBR 125 on the other hand is stylish and has good ergonomics for comfortable day-to-day commuting. We are confident that these bikes will capture the imagination of a whole generation of bikers who are looking for something extra.

    Talking about the company’s association with john Abraham, he said “our association with john has evolved into a strong relationship. A passionate biker himself, john has added a new dimension to our brand image. As an advisor also, he has given his value additions towards our company’s initiatives.

    Powering the SZ & SZ-X is the all new 4-stroke air-cooled, SOHC single cylinder engine with 153cc that has been tuned for optimum performance i.e. low to mid speed range thereby ensuring a stress-free ride on Indian roads. The bikes are equipped with AI system and a large capacity muffler with catalyser for cleaner exhaust.

    The bikes flaunt some cutting edge design structures like the headlight cowl with 3-d slanting line which along with a sporty fender with split look enhances the look of the bike. There is a large capacity 14L fuel tank which gives the ability to go the extra mile. The long cushioned seat ensures comfortable riding position enabling a straighter back and extra comfort while commuting long distances. SZ-X is also equipped with some of the finest technologies like electric starter and a windscreen to cut inward air swirl, thus making a hassle free riding experience for the rider.

    Adding to SZ and SZ-X charisma are the sophisticated meter panel, shroud with dynamic image, modern look dual tail lights, full plastic chain case ( gives protection from dust and water), robust side cover and 5-spoke cast wheel.

    SZ will be available in two colors – Black and Red while SZ-X will be available in three colors – Black, Red and Grey Metallic.

    The new YBR-125 , on the other hand, has chiseled looks and enthralls the commuter with a comfortable riding experience. The bike is targeted towards the executive segment customer who want a commuter bike that has a universally accepted design, gives a feeling of solidity & robustness and satisfactory mileage at an affordable price. The bike is equipped with 123cc engine and 4-speed gearbox. YBR 125 will be available in three colors – Red, Black and Black-Red colors. Booking of the bikes will start immediately.
    With the Yamaha-signature all over the trio Sz, Sz-x and YBR 125 are extremely well engineered, comfortable, stylish and promise to be the best bikes in respective segments.

    Good. More options for the indian customers.
    Like we say: More is never enough.
    I hope the SZ stands upto the standards and the engine comes as bullet proof as proven by other leaders in it's segment

    Nothing like yet a few more commuters in an already crowded segment, isn't it?

    I wish them luck selling these bikes, but it doesn't really add anything for the bike loving people that tend to hang out here. Oh well, I think I'll go back to hibernation while waiting for any manufacturer to come up with something to spark some real interest.
