By relying on volume production, Yamaha wants to achieve its target of capturing 10% of the Indian market share in the coming years. With bikes like the Yamaha SZR, they’ve been doing a pretty good job in capturing the imagination of the youth.
In order to achieve their objectives, Yamaha recently launched a number of models under the SZ series, one of which is the SZ-R.
The Yamaha SZ-R has the same design as the SZ-X, although the bike does come with a number of modifications, including new color options and the addition of a new front disc brake. In addition, the Yamaha SZ-R comes with a tachometer and a tank protector that has been fitted to the fuel tank to make it appear even larger. The bike also has a clear lens flasher, a colored handle grip end bar, and painted muffler end caps along with special graphics.
Finally, the SZ-R comes powered with a 153cc air cooled, 4 stroke, SOHC, 2-valve engine that produces 12 horsepower at 7,500 rpm and 12.8Nm of torque at 4,500rpm. It’s not a world-beater, but it’s got enough juice to make a difference to whoever is riding the saddle.
