Yamaha SZ-R 150
The 2011 model comes with a disc brake version, a
feature that has been strongly demanded by Indian motorcyclists for some time
“Yamaha India is confident that the new motorbike models will once again capture
the hearts of our motorcycle buyers and will further consolidate their position
in the market against Honda Hero and up and coming Mahindra & Mahindra,” a
company statement reads.
The SZ-R, which is a sporty version of the SZ-X, comes complete with front disc
brake, tachometer and has a tank protector added to the fuel tank to make it
appear even larger. In addition to that, the shroud from the standard SZ-X
motorcycle model is replaced by an aerodynamic spoiler that extends out in the
same silver coloring as the side covers.
The 2011 Yamaha SZ-R also has clear lens turn signals, colored handle grip end
bar, painted muffler end caps along with special graphics. The SZ-R is priced at
Rs 55,500 (about US$1,200) and will be available in 3 color options, namely
Quality Black, Quality Red and Quality Blue.
