Yamaha FZ S FI (V 2.0) is Christened as ‘The lord of the streets’, it indeed looks the part. With a fat rear tyre to crush the competition and naked aggressive styling the FS S is a hit in the premium 150cc market.
Yamaha is working on the next generation FZ. The new bike gets a new muscular design, a new LED headlamp and new features. The base model is expected to get a rear disc brake and ABS as standard. We expect the new generation FZ series to be launched by early 2019.

The bike I bought was in 2015. It was the refreshed model from the company and I loved it's look. An added FI system definitely inclined me towards the bike. The wide looking tyres make the bike look very bold and attractive. Ride quality is good and fuel economy is pretty good. Also note that the bike weighs just 132 kg, which feels great to handle but at the same time gives enough confidence on highways cruising at 80-901kph. Now coming to the points that I don't really like about the bike. These come as part of being with the bike for 3 years.1. The rear brakes suck. They are good for nothing. Thank god, Yamaha introduced rear disc brakes on new models. 2. Tyres skid a lot on wet roads.3. Lack of raw power. It feels under powered in low RPMs. 4.Acceleration isn't the greatest. 5.Feels breathless at speeds over 80kph. 6.Headlight isn't bright enough in dark.Overall, a good bike for the city ride with great comfort.Thumbs up Yamaha for making a good bike for Indian roads.
Now there are 2 versions. I have driven FZS in Delhi for 80K Kms and it was a delight. Perfect bike and excellent service. Spares were but costly but very durable. Then i shifted to Dehradun Mussoorie and (2017) bought FI version. Here situation changed. There is issue with service. Service guys seems to lack proper training unlike their friends in Delhi. Since last 3 services i have been telling them about faint noise from front tyre but they have not been able to resolve it. Otherwise bike is nice. Very low Center of gravity and good handling which is needed when I commute between Dehradun-Mussoorie. Yes it lacks the fast pickup like Pulsar and Apache.
It"s a daily commuter"s motorcycle, specially for those who expect high fuel efficiency. The fuel injection technology provides an average of 50kmpl if sensibly driven. Although the power and performance at higher speeds are not that much exciting as compared to the other rivals (suzuki gixxer, apache rtr 160 4v) which one may get at a similar price range. Nevertheless the motorcycle is highly stable at even speeds above 80kmph, the breaks provide you enough confidence to flick it around the traffic.Overall its for daily commuters, youngsters, students who expect value for money, style and fuel efficiency at the same time.
It is one of the best bike in 150 CC segment. It's top speed around 115 which I did. And I think that is perfect in a 150 CC bike. It is fit for daily commute and also fit for weekend give away around 200 kms up down which i hv done.it is my first bike and i feel that it would be a great choice for beginners.i use this bike almost two years and it gives me a mileage of 40 km/litre in kolkata city and 45-48 km in Highway.overall my experience is very nice in this bike.and it has a very good engine.thanks Yamaha.
I bought my Yamaha fzs-fi in 2016 till now I have ridden 75k kms I have changed 2 set tyres and 4 chain sprockets and few more accessories this is one of the best bike in 150cc segment. I use this is for daily commute and short and longs tours I never disappointed with the bikes performance in number it sounds like bit under powered than its rivals but its good bike easily you can do 110 kmph with decent amount of milege, if you are planning to buy go ahead with Yamaha you will love it
Can the new Honda CB Hornet 160R displace the Suzuki Gixxer as our choice as the best executive 150cc offering and how does it fare against the genesis of the segment, the Yamaha FZ-S FI? We put these machines through a vigorous test to get you the answer
On, paper, where does the newly launched Honda CB Hornet 160R stand against the Suzuki Gixxer and the Yamaha FZ-S FI?
