    Yamaha India has introduced the new 'Yamaha Motorcycle Connect X' Bluetooth connectivity feature on its BS6 FZ range of motorcycles.

    • FZS-Fi with Bluetooth connectivity is priced at Rs 1.07 lakh

    • Bluetooth system available as an accessory on the rest of the BS6 FZ-FI and FZS-FI range

    • Features include vehicle location, trip details and more

    Yamaha Motorcycle Connect X features 

    The Yamaha Motorcycle Connect X App is available on Google Play Store and iOS App Store for free. Once connected to the device, it offers information about trip distance, battery voltage and average speed. It also provides vehicle location information via the Locate My Bike and Answer Back feature, which turns on the indicators and sounds the horn to help find the bike in a crowded parking lot.

    Besides this, the system also has an E-lock feature that prevents theft and Hazard mode that turns on all four indicators, to warn others of your presence while parked at the side of the road.

    While these features are welcome, the Yamaha Bluetooth system misses out on turn by turn navigation, call and SMS alerts function. These features would have been useful in today's times and are already available on the TVS Apache motorcycles.

    Yamaha's new Bluetooth connectivity feature will be available initially on the  BS6 Yamaha FZS-FI Dark Knight Edition only. On account of the addition of this feature, the FZS-FI Dark Knight Edition is now priced at Rs 1.07 lakh, which is an approximately Rs 2,500 premium over the same model without the connectivity feature.

    Sales of the Bluetooth equipped Yamaha FZS-FI Dark Knight Edition will commence from November 1, 2020, onwards.

    The device can be also fitted as an accessory on the rest of the BS6 FZ-FI and FZS-FI (existing and new motorcycle) range by paying extra for the device. The fitment can be done at all Yamaha dealerships in India.
