With connectivity becoming a key product differentiator, two-wheeler OEMs are looking to introduce the latest technologies on their motorcycles and scooters. India Yamaha Motor is the latest to do this, after Suzuki and Honda. Yamaha has launched its ‘Yamaha Motorcycle Connect X’, a Bluetooth-enabled application enabled with Bluetooth technology will enable a seamless experience of riding and upkeep to the customers in unique ways.
The feature will first be made available in their FZS-FI Dark Knight BS VI variant. The entire series of FZ-FI & FZS-FI (150cc) BS VI motorcycles can be upgraded to this technology by buying the device as an extra accessory at authorised dealerships.
Motofumi Shitara, chairman, Yamaha Motor India Group of companies said, “We want to enhance the ride experience of our customers with the connected technologies. The Yamaha Motorcycle Connect X Application is set to be the most practical, convenient and reliable Bluetooth connectivity technology available for FZ customers in India and in future we will expand to all the lineup of our two wheelers. Each of the functionalities is methodically crafted to help bikers with a seamless experience of convenience and safety.”
With the introduction of the Bluetooth connectivity feature the ex-showroom price of FZS-FI Dark Knight has been revised to Rs 107,700 ex-showroom Delhi.
