Key Specs of FZ FI
Yamaha FZ FI Highlights
Our sources have confirmed that the Yamaha FZ 15 range is set to receive single-channel ABS from February 2019 onwards. Yamaha is likely to price the ABS-equipped FZ at a premium of Rs 5,000 to Rs 7,000 over their non-ABS variants. The move will also make the FZ range compliant with the upcoming safety regulations that mandate all two-wheelers above 125cc to have ABS.
The Yamaha FZ is the motorcycle that brought back the Japanese bikemaker to the forefront in the 150cc segment. Its muscular styling, chunky rear tyre, coupled with a strong legacy of the FZ range appealed instantly to customers looking for a sporty-looking, reasonably affordable 150cc motorcycle. The Version 2.0 features fuel injection as standard, feeding fuel to the 149cc (downsized compared to the earlier generation bike) Blue Core engine. As a result, Yamaha claims that the efficiency has gone up by 14 per cent compared to the carburetted model. The air-cooled SOHC motor comes coupled with a 5-speed transmission, and makes 13.2PS of power at 8000rpm and 12.8Nm of torque at 6000rpm. The instrument console is fully digital. Suspension duties are handled by telescopic front forks and a 7-step adjustable Monocross unit at the rear. The motorcycle comes to halt using a front disc and a rear drum. Yamaha does not offer ABS nor CBS even as an option. Chief rivals include Honda CB Hornet 160R, Bajaj Pulsar NS 160 and TVS Apache RTR 160 4V.

- Q. I have my Yamaha FZ S Fi v2.0 purchased in April 2017, now after 45000 km, white smoke is coming from silencer everyday when engine start, so service centre is saying to change the bore piston as it is blocked, I want to know the approximate cost for that and will that really affect the mileage always or any pro blem please reply.A.
That's a common problem when you don't change the engine oil on regular basis. The engine oil becomes too thick which causes bore and piston to worn off. I had faced same issue in my Honda Stunner at 50k km. The service centre quoted around 14000. I still ran my bike for another 15k km with oil changing at only 1500kms. Then I did the work through a local mechanic whom do I service regularly. He charged around 8000 for the same. Do not run the bike in this condition as it result in drop in mileage and power, and the piston rings will worn out to a bad condition. Get a quote from Good mechanic from your area and get the job done soon. If you are from Bengaluru I can share the details of the garage where I got it fixed.
FZ FI Expert Review
The Yamaha FZ FI is the Japanese bikemaker’s entry-level offering when it comes to sporty 150cc commuters. Launched way back in 2008, the FZ quickly became one of the most popular motorcycles from the manufacturer. Later in 2014, Yamaha updated the motorcycle with a complete overhaul in the form of Version 2.0. Its design was slightly more angular and sleek, while retaining the macho character of the motorcycle. The engine was also downsized and a fuel injection system was added for better efficiency. Consequently, the power and torque figures also went down marginally. The Version 2.0 makes 13.2PS of power at 8000rpm and 12.8Nm of torque at 6000rpm. A 5-speed transmission transfers power to the rear wheel via a chain drive. Honda CB Hornet 160R, Bajaj Pulsar NS 160 and TVS Apache RTR 160 4V are some of the primary competitors for this motorcycle.
Design and Features
Powering the Yamaha FZ FI is a 149cc single-cylinder Blue Core motor with air-cooling and fuel injection. Compared to the earlier generation motorcycle, the Version 2.0 is 14 per cent more efficient, claims Yamaha. A peak power of 13.2PS arrives at 8000rpm and at 6000rpm, the motor generates a peak torque of 12.8Nm. The engine is peppy and picks up revs quickly. Topping off the experience is a smooth-shifting 5-speed transmission with precise shifts, as expected from a Japanese machine.
Engine and Performance
The FZ-FI houses an all-new air-cooled single-cylinder 149cc Yamaha Fuel Injection Blue Core engine that churns out a max power of 13.2PS at 8,000rpm and a peak torque of 12.8Nm at 6,000rpm. Having built on the Blue Core concept lines, the new FZ-FI comes with an improved fuel economy over other models in the FZ series by up to 14 percent. The company claims it to yield a fuel economy of more than 50Kmpl on highways and 45Kmpl in the city. The bike is equipped with sensors and actuators that calculate and transfer the required amount of fuel to the engine- making it the fuel-efficient and performance-ridden motorcycle currently available on the market. The bike comes with the best throttle response in its class, ample torque and refined engine. Its reduced weight of 132Kg makes it more responsive and swift. The initial pickup hints at its smooth accelerating capabilities and overall performance.
Braking and Handling
The engine is nestled inside a diamond-type frame, which rides on telescopic front forks and a Monocross unit at the rear. When it comes to handling, the chassis inspires confidence and the motorcycle changes direction effortlessly, making it a nimble machine in the city. Suspension has also been reworked in the Version 2.0 to optimise handling. Meaty 100-section front and a 140-section rear tubeless tyres contribute to the motorcycle’s agility in a commendable way. Brakes include a disc up front and a drum unit at the rear.
Safety and Features
The Yamaha FZ FI comes with a disc brake up front as standard, and a rear drum. The Japanese brand does not offer ABS or CBS even as an option. Expect Yamaha to equip the motorcycle with ABS once norms are enforced for models currently in production.
