The tank cover is of poor quality plastic.

It's a very good and comfortable bike.Riding position is very well.And also styles bike it is.If you want to go long distance its so good for this.
One of my dream bike looks good i already drive one of my friends i have pulsar comparing with that i feel its very comfortable
Being a owner and riding for 3months(2700km) i'm sharing my personal opinion: Pros: 1)Looks and style -naked and perfect in this segment2) Mileage-40-45kmpl. Good for daily commute. 3) Handling and riding posture great. 4) Braking perfect, it will respond smoothly. 5) speed 0-60 no issue at city and highway, above 85 kmph it struggles on highway, you feel vibrations and if your weight 60-75kg you might feel wind factor also on highway. 6) Rider-Pillion seat perfect for 2 persons. Not more than 2..Cons: 1) Some sound observed in 0-40kmph speed in low rpm.. Though service technician said it's normal in fz.. But I don't like.. Compare to honda little notchy or scratchhy sound observed. 2) Top end you will miss on highway for sure. Confidence will low on highway due to 5no point mention above. 3) Body parts(plastic or fibre) material should be better. If you want to buy for your daily commutes its perfect. It's good for highway and touring also but within 90kmph speed.. I've travelled 300-350km(3times) in a single day within 6-7hrs without facing any issue except 5 no point mention in pros. Hope this will help. This is my personal opinion.. you might differ..
The bike has great handling making it a fun ride for commuting, Rider seating position is comfortable but can't say the same for the pillion rider.After riding for 600 km i can say that bike feels underpowered on the highway especially with a pillion rider.Forget about high-speed passes and overtakes if riding double.This reduces the confidence of highways.Another major con is an inefficient rear brake.The rear brake bite is very weak and you need to heavily rely on front braking at high speeds.Another weird thing is power delivery.The bike struggles for an initial 60 kmph and then all of a sudden reaches 80+.So yamaha needs to come out with better engine, Gearbox, And braking.Only the style quotient will not work today.
Previous owns motorcycle from other manufacturing company such as Honda Hero Bajaj Suzuki than after buying the Yamaha product I was satisfied you can say it's Great handling character, if riding is sensible you can achieve a great economy like what I am getting on highway is 68 kpl, built quality is good only thing this motor lag is in terms of top end performance the bottom & mid range performance you won't complain it adequate for city ride bumper to bumper traffic conditions the motorcycle is comfortable you can Cruze all day long it's only lag on highway in terms of top end performance it that is not your priority than I would rather suggest anyone to go a head with the Yamaha product.
2011 i bought fz and then in 2016 upgraded to Fz V2. Positives: Refinement, Handling, Ligh Weight, Easy to flicker in the city, Smooth Gear Box. Neutral: Mileage is 40. Service Cost. Negatives: Less power if u compare with the segment( U will feel it on the highways), Yamaha Service centers are worst(trust me I have tried every single service center in Delhi).No Doubt about the bike but service u have to be really careful. If ur a Yamaha Fan boy: buy itLooking for Highway Cruising: Please go for atleast 200cc.Everyday commute: If you r ok with the mileage of 40 then good or else look for other options.
This is my first bike that I bought with my own money previosly I had apache first version everything that Yamaha fzs fi offers the bike is good only in highway speed is not that good and the body of the bike like the tank it's a huge tank and the problem is its only with one s***w in the whole panel and its fibre so what happens is when you drive in high speed and for instance if you need to use the break the pressure that is generated from the pillon rider the tank cannot handle and the tanky interal fibre breaks and the tank seeems to be coming out that's the problem rest everything is awesome
