Yamaha Motor India has announced accessories for the recently launched FZ and FZ-S V3.0 motorcycles in the country. The new accessories for the Yamaha FZ V3.0 can be purchased at the company's dealerships and include visual and practical upgrades for the 150 cc motorcycles. The accessories are priced from as low as ₹ 175 for the tank pad that protects the fuel tank from scratches, going all the way till ₹ 800 for new body decals that can be added to the fuel tank and shrouds, side panels and tail section.
The accessories list also includes a metal pillion footrest that is priced at Rs 400, while a practical addition will be the handlebar-mounted USB charger priced at ₹ 750.

Protective accessories are also available and include a engine underbelly bash plate for Rs 300, engine guard for ₹ 800 and a black seat cover for ₹ 300.

The motor continues to be paired to a 5-speed gearbox. The bike uses 41 mm telescopic forks up front and a monoshock unit at the rear, while braking performance comes from disc units at either end. The third generation FZ was introduced in January and was updated with single-channel ABS as standard, along with the revised design, new single-piece seat and a LED headlamp.
The Yamaha FZ V3.0 is priced at Rs 95,000, while the FZ-S V3.0 is priced at ₹ 97,000 (all prices, ex-showroom Delhi). The latter gets an engine cowl and chrome highlights on the shrouds, along with new colour options. The FZ V3.0 competes against a number of offerings in the segment including the Suzuki Gixxer, Honda CB Hornet 160R, TVS Apache RTR 160 4V and even the Hero Xtreme 200R.
