Yamaha celebrates 10 Years of Fz with the launch of New Armada Blue Variant

Back in 2008, Yamaha launched a head turner bike FZ-16 which was built with a “Triple Muscular Concept” (Muscular silhouette, Muscular Body parts and Muscular Chassis) i.e. the hottest looking bike of the year 2008. The Fz-16 managed to bag the distinguished awards like the Bike of the Year Award from Autocar, Business Standard Motoring, Zigwheels and Viewers Choice award at UTVi & Autocar India Awards 2009. Since then FZ has constantly maintained its legacy as it followed the launch of FZ-S on similar lines but with a greater style quotient. Today, the FZ-S is priced at INR 86,042 (ex-showroom, Delhi).

The bike has been performing excellently in terms of its own performance as well as the sales figures for the company. In order to celebrate the 10 years of FZ series, Yamaha has launched the Armada Edition of the famous FZ series. The Armada Edition gets 3 major upgrades which include stylish mirrors, a new design of the spokes and mostly importantly the 220 mm rear disk brake. Hence, the braking will be definitely improved to some extent. However, we feel that the stylish design of the rear view mirrors has compromised the complete reflection that must have been visible in the mirror. Rest of the features remain the same as the Yamaha FZ-S version 2, also known as FZ-S FI with blue core technology.
