Yamaha adds traction control and better tech to its India line-up with the update
Yamaha India has revamped its motorcycle portfolio for 2023. All popular models- the R15, MT15, FZ-S and FZ-X have been upgraded with more tech, safety features and slight cosmetic reworks. The prime focus this time has been on improving the rider’s comfort, convenience and experience.
Yamaha motorcycle models for 2023, will be OBD-2 compliant, meaning they will have an onboard diagnostic system that can monitor and report emissions in real-time, and traction control will now come standard. Some of these updates were mentioned in one of our previous articles on upcoming Yamaha bikes. Let us now take a closer look at these new models…
