Yamaha India updates its SX-X and SZ-R models with new colors/graphics and adds a kick starter..
Yamaha India had launched three models under the SZ brand name in August/September 2010. Unless one keeps a regular tab on the 2 wheeler scene in India, its a bit confusing for the common man to differentiate between the three SZ models.
When first launched, SZ: Had only Kick start and had no tank scoop, SZ-X: Had Electric start (but no kick start) + had a tank scoop & SZ-R: Had Electric Start (but no kick start) + had a different tank scoop design than the SZ-X + had a front disc brake.

What's new in the 2012 upgrade?: Yamaha India has added the earlier missing Kick starter along with the Electric starter on the SZ-X and SZ-R models. Also the SZ-X and SZ-R models get slightly redesigned decals and a new "Silver" color.
The base SZ model seems to have been untouched also in the technical specifications remain almost identical with the older model except for the 2 kg increase in the kerb weight.
Price: When launched the SZ-X had a price tag od Rs. 52,000 (Ex-Showroom Delhi) and the SZ-R Rs. 55,500 (Ex-Showroom Delhi). It is not known whether the price has been increased for the 2012 SZ-X and SZ-R models.. but even if there is an increment, it would not be too substantial.
