Yamaha FZ16 Thread.

Recommended Posts

hey guys! i was reading a review on zigwheels & found this abt its fuel efficiency.....

 

The FZ successfully strikes the perfect balance between performance and economy. Even with liberal use of the throttle, the FZ16 surprised us with an over all efficiency of 60.32kmpl. In the city she ran 58.33km on one litre of petrol while on the highway she did 66.32km on same quantum of fuel.

 

is this correct???

 

also have a look at this image....

either i don't have any idea .. may be they never brake :P...

it seams same as bajaj claims Xcd 125 giving milage 100+ but returns only 55-65kmpl on real world situations.. (traffic lights,Jams,bad road)

may be Yamaha have something to do with these ratings ... to market there product ...smiley2.gif

Yeah but I indulge in some highway driving too, where heavy winds are present. I'll be doing 70-80 and the cars will zoom past me making the bike to dance. If I'm not careful, I'll definietly lose control.

Congrats Crazycat for your new bike. I must say that in the designing front, the FZ16 is the best among all the bikes available in India. It even looks better than the R15. And the 140 section rear tyre makes it look damn good.
