Review of Yamaha Fazer
Yamaha Fazer OverView
Yamaha after a successful reign in the 150cc segment in the recent years is still on the roll and continues in amazing everyone by their stunning line up of bikes. One such extra ordinary bike which has taken everyone off their feet is the Yamaha Fazer, which is a complete sensation. This bike which was launched in 2008, is still playing out on large and is serving the Yamaha Motor Company very well in serving the craving and increasing demands of the customers.
Yamaha Fazer is very much similar to Yamaha FZ-S and Yamaha FZ16 but due to its sporty and more edgy character it is specified as a Sport Tourer. The bike has got the same monocross suspension as in the FZ16 and FZ-S, but a twin headlamps and a semi-fairing makes it different from its predecessors. The bike also inherits triple macho design from them, which helps the bike in offering excellent performance with the help of brilliant ergonomics. The best thing about this bike which lures the buyers towards it, is large and spacious seat, which is designed for offering a best in class comfort to the riders on long hour journeys.
Yamaha Fazer Designing
Yamaha Fazer completely stands out off the crowd and overplays its competitors easily when it comes to its design and looks. It is undoubtedly one of the best looking bikes in its class, though the company claims it to be the best looking bike. The bike gets a fierce looking character lines up on the front with addition of two twin headlamps with an acute parking lamp in the center. During high speeds the bike responds very well to the incoming wind blasts and lowers down the body drag with the help of a stylish and a very important dual toned aerodynamic front cowl. The sporty character is enhanced by a brawny wind protector and a wider rear radial tyre . The wide fender on the rear is equipped perfectly for protecting the bike from wet splashes, mud and dust. It also helps out in protecting the bike's excellent paint job, which enhances the overall persona of the Fazer on the streets.
Yamaha Fazer Appearance
The bike gets a special treatment on the side profiles, as with its large 12 liter fuel tank surrounded by large cowls on both the sides it emotes out the sporty character of the sport tourer. Furthermore, for adding to the style of the bike LED tail lamps and LCD information cluster with an unique carbon pattern gives a personifying aura to the motorcycle's presence on the roads. The sleeky graphic work on the cowls of the bike, gives it a flashy look and helps it in flaunting the sporty, brawny and rowdy looks on higher speeds. But, the black alloy wheels are the main attraction for the on lookers.
Yamaha Fazer Engine And Performance
The aggressive stunner, Yamaha Fazer is armed with a 153 cc air cooled, 2-valve, 4-stroke SOHC engine. This engine is blessed with the revolutionary liquid cooling system, which is mostly used on the bikes meant for performing on the race tracks. Yamaha has used a liquid coolng system for delivering a best in class engine which performs brillaintly not only on high speeds but also responds well during traffic jams. The liquid coolant keeps the temperature at low inside the engine and absorbs the noise for strengthening the engine life with a quieter, and healthier ride quality. Hence, this engine is tuned well for putting up a 14bhp or power output at 7500 rpm and 14Nm of peak torque value at 6000 rpm. In addition to this the engine is mated with a constant mesh five-speed transmission gear box which works hand in hand with an extra ordinary engine for amazing the rider with a marvelous performance figures. However, the engine gets a little steady while responding in to the speed demands of the rider. The acceleration is decent, but it takes quite some time fot eh bike to reach the top notched speed mark of 132 kmph, which depends on the weight of the rider and the luggage. But, the average top speed of 118 kmph is very easily achieved on all kinds of tracks.
Yamaha Fazer Mileage
This is the field where the bike might disappoint a little. The company claims of a 40 kmpl fuel economy will be offered easily by the bike on Indian roads, but this figure averages down to 36 kmpl. Thus, this point might be kept in mind by the buyers while buying this sports tourer which has got only a 12 liter capacity fuel tank.
Yamaha Fazer Braking And Handling
Yamaha fazer has been also given a fair amount of attention towards baking and handling. the bike is quipped with a 267mm large disc brake up on the front. This disc brake uses a two-pot calliper that employs the disc's outer perimeter for giving out a better braking mechanism on the front tyrre. While a traditional drum brake on the wider radial rear tyre works in cogninace witht eh disc brakes ont he front for bringing in the bike to an immediate halt with perfect smooth stopping mechanism.
Also with an overall dimensional attributes of 1975 x 770 x 1045 mm this bike much more longer, wider and taller than most of its arch rivals. The Fazer is equipped with its predecessor bie FZ's mid-ship muffling system, which enables the biker's, pillion's and luggage weight to be concentrated on to the center of gravity point of the bike. Thus enhancing the balance and control for the rider. Finally the handlebar, which is palced accordingly to the seat of the bike gives a perfect posture to the rider suitable for long hour journeys.
Yamaha Fazer Safety Features
The fazer is blessed with a class leading, racing inpired mono-cross suspension system on the rear end. This suspension system gives a stable and responsive ride quality over the worst tracks. a telescopic hydraulic suspenions up on the front brigns the bike back into right postiton soon after it goes over the bumpy tracks and elaves on jolts or jerks for the rider.
