With the addition of connected technologies, Yamaha had been looked down to not offer them on their bikes. Now Yamaha has brought a rather impressive connected blue tooth technology which seems to have much more than expected. Let’s take a look at what is offered on the Yamaha FZ-S Bluetooth system.
The connect X app which is available on the Android and iOS both allows to control these Bluetooth enable features on the bike.

This is an anti-theft system which is enabled using a smartphone with the app installed. We would like to say that they should have provided with the key which works on IR to trigger all these functions. This would have increased the practicality of these systems.

It illuminates the indicators for 10 seconds continuously.
Although Yamaha FZ-S does not get a hazard light switch now the bike hazard light can be turned on using the app. It is kind of lame that for this you need a phone but never the less its good have it available.

When connected with the phone the bike will use the GPS to keep track of the parking of the bike. It will also provide a map route to that location. It is really good for people with a mice memory.
Yamaha FZ-S Bluetooth is only available on the Dark knight edition. If you are the owner of the latest generation of the FZ-S then you could also possibly upgrade to these systems. Do contact your dealer for further details. The FZ-S Dark Night now costs Rs. 1,07,700 (Ex-showroom, New Delhi), effective 1st November 2020 onwards.
