The Yamaha FZ Review and Specifications


Yamaha FZ Specifications and Price - The motivation for the Yamaha FZ was taken from its predecessor, the monstrous FZ-1, which was not really practical for a country such as India. The Indian design needs a few properties which are not for the most part found in the international forms. The Yamaha FZ engine size declines and next to each other great mileage is fabricate and a bicycle with Indian conventional standard is made. The main thing Yamaha oversaw here and turned out to be the best was keeping the muscle soul alive and making something which truly tested everything which comes in the way.

Then Yamaha unveiled the Yamaha FZ-16 v2.0 and the Yamaha FZ-S v2.0. These all were based on the same casing as the rendition 1.0, yet with time the mechanical changes were made. The current rendition had fuel injection as standard on both variations, with the recently developed engine (149 cc) delivering 12.9 BHP and 12.8 NM of torque.

Yamaha FZ Features

  • POWERFUL ENGINE : Evident from its breathtaking pick-up, FZ16 has the newly designed 153CC air-cooled, 4 stroke SOHC, single-cylinder, 2-valve engine with a maximum output of 14 Ps and a maximum torque of 13.6 N.m. It also features an electric starter as well as a kick starter.
  • MONOCROSS SUSPENSION : A Monocross rear suspension unit provides 120 mm of wheel travel, while optimized oil and damping valve specs help ensure agile running performance and handling. Apart from providing a very comfortable ride, it also prevents bottoming while riding with a tandem passenger.
  • MIDSHIP MUFFLER : To give a sense of volume to the machine, an external diameter of 35mm is adopted in a two-layer type exhaust to minimize the effect of heat on the pipe. The layout features a large-volume primary character on the underside of the crankcase and is called the muffler. FZ-S has an irregular shaped tapered type mid-ship muffler.
  • WIDEST RADIAL(REAR)TYRE : FZ16' rear tyre is India's first radial tyre with a 60% aspect ratio. Both the front and rear tyres on this model are tubeless type that are less susceptible to sudden flattening should the tyre be punctured.
  • TRENDY METER CONSOLE : Full Liquid Crystal Display Meter Console has speedometer, tachometer, trip meter, fuel gauge and other indicators are set in optimum positions to keep the field of vision clear. Also, the engine starting signal is an example of the spirit of innovation.
  • FENDER : The bike sports a fairly wide rear fender that guards the tyre from the mud and water splashes. It minimizes the effect of the mud/splash and gives maximum protection.
  • SEAT : More seat space provides a more comfortable riding experience. The seat is long, firm and especially designed for the pillion rider. The grab bar not only acts as a backrest but is something the pillion rider can hold on to if the road is bumpy.
