Yamaha Introduces Bluetooth Technology To FZ Bikes In India

Yamaha Motor India has introduced the ‘Yamaha Motorcycle Connect X’ smartphone application. The application will use the Bluetooth technology in the phone to connect to a Bluetooth module on the bike. The application is designed in a way that it enables the rider to connect to the bike by a ‘single touch’ on the mobile app. From the mobile device, the rider can access features like Answer Back, E-Lock, Locate My Bike and Hazard. It also displays the trip details such as distance, average speed, brake count and battery voltage. The application also stores the last parked location of the bike and helps navigate the rider from their current location to the bike using GPS.

Initially, this feature will be made available with FZS-FI Dark knight BS VI variant. However, entire series of FZ-FI and FZS-FI (150cc) BS VI motorcycles can upgrade to this technology by buying the Bluetooth device for the motorcycle as an extra accessory at authorised Yamaha Dealerships and connect to the Yamaha Motorcycle Connect X app.

The Yamaha Motorcycle Connect X application is set to be the most practical, convenient and reliable Bluetooth connectivity technology available for FZ customers in India and in future we will expand it to all the lineup of our two-wheelers. Each of the functionalities are methodically crafted to help the bikers with a seamless experience of convenience and safety.”
