The Yamaha FZ series is the most popular motorcycle for the Japanese two-wheeler giant in India. It was updated with fuel injection and revised styling few years back and was christened Yamaha FZ-FI Version 2.0. The popularity of the 150cc motorcycle can be credited to its muscular styling which was revolutionary when the bike was launched close to eight years back in India. The Yamaha FZ-FI gets a sharp looking headlamp, chiselled fuel tank, chunky muffler and split seats. The FZ-FI also gets an all-digital instrument console as apposed to the semi-digital unit as seen on the older bike. The Yamaha FZ-FI has been priced at Rs 80,726 ex-showroom, Delhi.
The Yamaha 150cc bike has been equipped with fuel injection to offer better throttle response and Blue Core technology to increase mileage. The FZ-FI returns around 40kmpl fuel efficiency in real world conditions. The bike employs a diamond type frame that is suspended on telescopic front forks and a monoshock unit at the back. Braking is done by disc brake at front and the FZ-FI doesn't get rear disc brake even as an optional extra. The bike competes against Honda CB Hornet 160, Suzuki Gixxer, TVS Apache RTR180 and Hero Xtreme.
