Yamaha just revealed their new ethanol-based FZ-15 at Auto Expo 2023. The bike is capable of running on both ethanol fuel as well as petrol.
One of this motorcycle's key selling qualities is that it can run on both ethanol and gasoline. The company has also made multiple substantial changes to give its outside and design a more contemporary look.
It now has exterior headlamps that have undergone remodelling and mimic those on the larger FZ25 motorcycle sold in the Indian market. However, it maintains the bulky fuel tank design treatment with phoney air vents, a stubby exhaust, and a one-seat design. Pirelli Diablo Rosso 2 tyres are, however, included with the bike as standard equipment. Racing Blue, Midnight Black, and Magma Red are the three brand-new colour options for 2023.
The gasoline tank size has been reduced to 11.9 litres, but the business has also updated the bike with slightly improved ground clearance. It should be noted that its single-cylinder, 149 cc engine has the ability to run on ethanol in addition to gasoline or petrol. 12.2 bhp and 12.7 nm of torque are produced by the engine thanks to tuning. The bike still uses its original 5-speed transmission for transmission functions. Nevertheless, the 2023 FZ-15 retains the same brake and suspension design as the outgoing model. It has 17-inch wheels and is the same weight at 135kg.
