The Yamaha SZ-RR V 2.0 is now equipped with the new Blue Core technology as seen on the latest version of the FZ-S and Fazer. The bike is powered by the 149cc single-cylinder Blue Core engine that produces 11.9bhp of power and 12.8Nm of torque. Though the power has gone down by 1.1bhp, the torque remains the same and the bike is now expected to offer 11 per cent better fuel economy than the previous engine. This motor comes mated to the five-speed constant mesh gearbox but misses the fuel-injection system.
By adding it to the 150cc commuter segment of motorcycles in India, Yamaha has pitched the Yamaha SZ-RR V 2.0 against the Honda CB Unicorn, Hero Achiever and the Bajaj V15.
