Yamaha Motor is all set to introduce Bluetooth connectivity options for all its upcoming products including the FZ series that are currently available for sale in the Nepalese market. However, the FZS-FI, FZS-FI will be the first Yamaha offerings to get the tech. The newly launched Yamaha FZ-X and the updated RayZR and Fascino scooters already feature Bluetooth connectivity. The system allows you to pair your smartphone via the Yamaha Connect application to enable features like call and SMS alerts and more.
Yamaha Motor has two Bluetooth apps on offer currently, the Yamaha Motorcycle Connect X and the Y-Connect. The Motorcycle Connect-X app has features like answer back, battery voltage, parking record, e-lock, locate your bike, riding history and so on. Similarly, the Y-Connect app offers features like call and SMS alerts, battery level of the connected mobile phone, malfunction notification, rev dashboard, fuel consumption, and maintenance notification and so on.
According to the company, the likes of the FZ series, MT-15, R15 and the 250 cc range will get Bluetooth soon. The launch timeline for other models in the Yamaha line-up getting Bluetooth is yet to be revealed by the Yamaha motor. The company has also said that it’s working on evolving the technology, which means we expect more features to be added. Yamaha will offer Bluetooth connectivity as an option on all its two-wheelers.
We believe the FZ-Series of bikes will be next in line to get the feature. According to the company, there will be both non-Bluetooth and Bluetooth variant. The newly launched FZ-X is offered in two variants too, with the standard model and the other with smartphone connectivity. There will be a difference in price for both models going forward in the Nepalese market. The smartphone connectivity will be slightly expensive than the standard model. We believe these bikes will soon be available in the Nepalese market.
