Review of Yamaha SZ
Yamaha SZ OverView
Yamaha, the company which today has become a major player in the Indian market with its fine line of bikes, is now aiming at becoming a big contributor of the total number of bikes sold in the Indian markets. Thus, the company is today playing at large with a wide range of options and has grabbed the attention of the buyers. One such fine bike from the camp Yamaha is the stylish Yamaha SZ, in the 150 cc segment. This bike is currently available in three versions namely, Yamaha SZ 153 sports, Yamaha SZ X 153 cc and Yamaha SZ R. The latest of all three, the Yamaha SZ-R borrows its design from the SZ-X and has been given a number of updates like, a new front disc brake, new color choice, tachometer and fenders around the tank for making it look more stylish than before. The Yamaha SZ is equipped with a 153cc engine for making it compete against the likes of Bajaj Pulsar line up, Honda CB Unicorn, Honda Dazzler, Hero MotoCorp CB Xtreme, Hero MotoCorp Hunk, TVS Apache, Suzuki GS150R. Hence, Yamaha has left no stone unturned towards arming this variant with an awesome design package along with a top class technical engine, braking and suspension mechanism.
Yamaha SZ Designing
Yamaha first undraped the Yamaha SZ concept model at Delhi Auto Expo 2010 and since then Yamaha has launched several variants of the SZ. All of these models carry same design patterns, appearance and looks. At first glance the bike easily impresses everyone with its simplicity and sober looks, which it carries along. With an overall dimensional attributes of 2050 x 730 x 1040 mm this bike is adequately long, wide and tall for a perfect ride comfort. However, the Yamaha with a clear decision of bringing in a bike which would appeal to the both 125cc and 150cc segment bikes, has carved out a bike which does not much falls along with the existing stylish and stunning players in the 150cc segment. Thus one can say that the SZ variants are not much of the hot bikes in the 150cc segment, but one cannot deny the sheer presence of this bike on the streets. The front fascia is equipped with a precisely cut, black colored short visor, which doesn't add up much to the status quo of the bike. But, the headlight along with orange colored turn indicators and an integrated body colored cowl give an appealing nice appearance to the front fascia of the bike. Besides the partly black front fender which extends similar to the other high performance bike from Yamaha along the SZ front forks builds up an eye catchy aura for the viewers. The exterior features on the side profile are blessed with a large fuel tank which depicts nice character lines along with stunning tank shrouds. Besides this the bike has been given an all black treatment over the five-spoke alloy wheels, engine, exhaust pipe and the rear grab rail. While the rear section also gets an adequate amount of attention for bringing out the overall uniformity in the designing. The very first thing which gives the SZ a differentiable look on the rear is its innovative and first of its kind dual taillights of different size. Moreover, an extended rear fender, which houses the number plate and a light reflector perfectly does the job of catching people's attention. Yamha SZ Appearance Yamaha has left no page unturned towards cladding the SZ with head turning appearance. The bike has got a trapezoid shaped head lamp which houses the traditional halogen bulb and is packed by dual colour tone panels. Racing stripes have been added up on the front mud-guard of the bike. Though the bike is smartly designed for attracting the buyers from the both 125 cc and 150 cc segments, the Yamaha SZ has been given a twin body color and racing graphics for appealing its sporty character towards the young generation riders. The buyers have been gifted with an impressive and stylish information cluster which consists of a speedometer, trip-meter, tachometer and fuel gauge. The muffler design of the exhaust pipe is the main attractive characteristic that has been carved out and fitted like a bullet for keeping up with the stylish character of the bike.
Yamaha SZ Engine And Performance
An all new 4-stroke, single cylinder, air-cooled, 2 valves and SOHC valve configured engine powers Yamaha SZ and works in the direction of moiling out the maximum power of 12bhp at 7500 rpm and a whooping torque of 12.8Nm at 4500 rpm, which is quite impressive. The engine ergonomics are tuned for providing the rider with optimum power and torque even at low and mid speed. Thus, the engine is loaded with an impressive acceleration and pick up performance which comes quite handy during the typical Indian traffic conditions. The engine works perfectly fine with hands in hands with a five speed manual gearbox for delivering high class speed to gear ratio on the top. The gear shift pattern for this five speed manual gearbox is one gear down and four gears shift pattern, which is quite smooth and crispy on all speed levels. Yamaha SZ Mileage The company claims that Yamaha SZ is capable of putting up a brilliant fuel economy figure of 55-60 kmpl on city roads and it can go up by 5 kmpl on highways. The fuel tank capacity for the SZ is of 14 litres. The reasons behind this impeccable mileage mechanism is its detuned FZ inspired engine and a slim rear tyre.
Yamaha SZ Braking And Handling
Yamaha SZ falls short in providing a compelling braking mechanism due to the absence of disc brake mechanism. Yamaha SZ is equipped with traditional 150mm drum brake on the front and a 130mm drum brake on the rear tyre. But, this perfect combination of drum brake mechanism on both the front and rear ends works fine under all kinds of weather conditions and strives for delivering powerful braking on the bumpy tracks and easily bring the bike to an instant halt, whenever required. Yamaha has not compromised with handling feature of this bike, as SZ never gets off the track while going through wet and dusty surfaces. Yamaha has notched up first class steering quality on the handle bar. The bike gets an extra stability control due to its wide tyres and a 1320mm wide wheelbase. The high ground clearance of 165mm has made it quite easy for short riders. which gives a confident ride experience on extreme sharp turns. But, the perfectly positioned wide seat of SZ gives a correct riding posture to the rider and even the pillion never falls off on the bumpy tracks.
Yamaha SZ Safety Features
Yamaha SZ is armed with a wide array of safety features which ensure of a hassle free ride. The suspension system comes first in this array of safety features. The front tyre is equipped with a traditional telescopic hydraulic fork shock absorber and a hydraulic shock absorber below the seat on the rear tyre. Both of these shock absorbers work in accordance for ensuring a jolt free ride to the both rider and pillion. Besides this, the bike is equipped with pass-light switch along with the powerful headlamp and area saree guard.
Yamaha SZ Pros
Attractive sporty graphic job, Wide seat, powerful head lamp, and slim rear tyre for effective braking, smooth engine.
Yamaha SZ Cons
Absence of front disk brake, 125 cc segment bike appearance and looks.
