If you think the pricing is expensive, there are a few important things to consider.

Yamaha FZS BS6 currently retails for Rs. 3.94 Lakhs.

Taking that into consideration, the Yamaha FZ-X includes a different styling than the FZS with a plethora of more premium features. Hence, the pricing reflects that as a premium offering despite being limited to a 150cc engine.

Fortunately, there is no competition for the Yamaha FZX.

Royal Enfield Meteor and Jawa 42 are worthy rivals. However, those bikes fall into different segments, both in price and engine configuration.

It is the only neo-retro cruiser at this moment.

Plus, the neo-retro cruiser segment has always been a fan favorite for many. So, it will be interesting to see just how the market and the competition will react to this.
