Yamaha FZ16 Thread.

Recommended Posts

I was searching on google to find out the top speed of the FZ16 and one of the sites said that it was 132kph. But that is around the top speed of the R15 (speedo reading not true speed). So does anyone know if the FZ16 can really go that fast?

Can be known only after Oct1 since its available after that date in the showrooms! I called the Yamaha dealer, he says the bike will cost 75k onroad! where as the website says 65k off road all over India!!

10k for registration and insurance???

the bike will cost 65k (plus taxes) all over india.

FZ16 is more of a street bike with high torque figures that will give it excellent city riding unlike its sibling YZF R15 which is a spots bike with higher top speeds but requires frequent gear change in city riding. however, the top speed would be in the range of other 150cc bikes (110-120kmph).

The latest Autocar says its top speed is about 110kph on the speedo, so I expect to see a real top speed of close to this whenever we see a magazine with a road test. I only trust Autocar and OD for bike performance tests. The other magazines seem to be putting out fake stuff.

http://motorbeam.com/wp-content/uploads/2008/09/yamaha-fz16-review.jpg' target="_blank">The Yamaha FZ16 has been a highly awaited bike and is a very important

bike for Yamaha. We thought reviewing the FZ16 is as important as

reviewing a new Maruti car, so we did not delay in getting our hands on

the Yamaha FZ16.

To start off this bike has striking presence. The looks of this bike

will be a major reason for its success. We all know that the Pulsar 150

isint as great a bike as its sales figure suggests, its engine is not

as refined either compared to the Unicorn but it does sell and how! One

of the main reasons for the Pulsar 150 to sell so well is, it looks the

part and the FZ16 makes the Pulsar look like a bike from last

generation. After looking at the FZ16, i can confidently say that the

bike is Definitely Male.

Just like the Yamaha R15, the FZ16 has been wind tunnel tested for

better aerodynamics. The engine is air cooled and uses a carburetor. A

FI version would have made this bike really more desirable but then

Yamaha had to price it sanely too. However the bike does ride pretty

well.

There is good amount of low end grunt, something which is missing in

the R15. Though power of 14PS doesn

I still am waiting for a more bigger engine say >230CC other than pulsar!

Hope Yamaha think on these lines..

the bike looks smashing but i thing that mileage will be under 35kmpl un day to day conditions due to fatter tyres. anyway, i love the bike but wish it had bigger engine suited to its looks...

It means the bike rattles after that rpm and does not have any juice left and since the bike is light on weight it does not stick on the road especially if you are on a highway..

This is a ideal in your face attitude city bike!

I think what it means is that after 7500rmp the bike must be very unstable and by not at all a highway bike, I guess it means its just a normal 150 with looks. Meaning the engine can't take the stress travilling at 100kph.

The FZ will be better than CBZ, in terms of looks, weight, dig speedo with dig rpm, mono shock and so on. But I don't really see a difference in power 14hp. Hunk and Pulsar have 14hp too. Wait for a little while, by then people might have written reviews about it too. If your CBZ is working fine then keep it.
