Best bike love it
Hi readers, She looks amazingly hot and really helps getting the maximum out of her.
I guess you must have already found the information about this bike from sources like Internet and showroom but you see I want to narrate my personal experience with my bike. I used to drive motorcycles from my schooling days.
I started peddling from Hercules cycle to driving Bajaj Chetak scooter, Bajaj Discover and Royal Enfield. Now I am lucky to ride my dream bike which I purchased on my birthday and it is really very special for me. After driving Bajaj Discover for 3 years, I thought of upgrading my bike from 135cc to 150 or 220 CC. and so I started searching for my dream bike. I used to drive bikes of all major brands to check which will suit me the best.
During my research I saw Yamaha Fazer displayed at a Yamaha promotional campaign @ Nehru stadium Chennai long back.
At that campaign I had a discussion with Yamaha officials and came to know that Fazer was going to be launched in India at an affordable price. That day I decided to wait for the launch. I waited for nearly 2 year for the launch and finally I bought my Fazer on Aug 2009.
To get the real feel of the bike, I used to drive a lot and check articles, online forums and also used to speak with other owners. During such course of interaction I met with some more passionate bikers who also own Fazer and on Orkut we used to share our experience about Fazer.
We as a team used to plan for long distance trips, Route Suggestions, Tips etc. We were just beginners and used to share news, feedbacks, problems and solutions, accessories, Biking photos and Videos etc.I want to now share my long driving experience with my Fazer. My 1st long ride was Chennai- Puttur- Chennai (300km) with a Pillion rider. I felt very uncomfortable driving with pillion rider because of very small pillion seat. My 2nd trip was Chennai- Pondicherry- Chennai (350km) under inclement weather with heavy rain but for Fazer and its controlled handling the riding was very safe experience.
In this trip the constraint was speed (Max 115); had to halt (every 50 to 60km); petrol (mileage only 35 km/l). In spite of the short comings the trip was a most unforgettable one in my life.
When we speak about Fazer the things that comes to our mind are fat tyres, bulky tank and dual headlight which gives her an aggressive look. The ride on this bike is smooth, vibration free and feels like heaven if you drive with a speed below 90 km/h. Even the Power is always on top as long as you drive below 90Km/h.
Overtaking usually doesn’t require a downshift even if you are in the top gear. Overall one can instruct the bike as per our driving style. Yamaha has marketed Fazer as a touring bike with a max speed not crossing 115km/h but Yamaha needs to work on this feature and try to fine-tune the engine so that the speed increases to some higher number. If Yamaha does this anytime soon then Fazer will be a true example of a touring bike.
The seat is quite good for city ride but not that comfortable as far as long drives are concerned. Moreover, no storage space is provided under the seat. Despite of all this, the look of Fazer is stunningly catchy and is stands out amongst all the 150cc bikes.
