If a motorcycle could grow up like a child,  it would want to look like the Yamaha FZ150 when it reaches puberty. Just one look at the bike is enough to make you fall for it, I did and mind you I am straight!



Macho, Muscular are the sort of adjectives that come into your mind and this is exactly what Yamaha had in mind when they were styling this one. The bike gets its looks from the global FZ series known for awesome looks and tremendous power. Everything about this bike is big, the wide tyres, the huge tank, the beefy forks. Viewed side on it looks like a well built athelete on the start line flexing its muscles, waiting to smash all the records.

The engine will be a 150cc air cooled unit but tuned for low and mid range torque than top end rush, so expect this to be an effortless performer. Coming from Yamaha, expect top class finish and highest quality cycle parts.

And the looks, well it will make every bike in the country go hide behind the curtains.

Design elements that make the FZ series look the way it does: 

 1.  Big center mass

2. Condensation, no open areas. Everything is tight, lithe and muscular.

3. Tough looking front forks.

4. Tough looking chassis.

5. Midship Stubby silencer.

6. Wide Macho tyres

7. High contrast and rugged shaped body parts.

 The bike would be launched during the diwali season, November. Expect some loud firecrackers…. Yamaha is back and how!

The aggressive front:

The back, notice the small tail light

The beauty and the beast:

bike looks awesome… but price is little (??) on the higher side… it has no exceptional features other than looks…
apart,, every piece of stuff is pretty normal… 150cc-20bhp(hmm)-front single disc-rear drum-little wide tyres-air cooled-no fuel injection… sounds common,, isn’t it?? then why 95k?? why not put something around 80k?? wud do gud if they think twice or even thrice before they get to the consensus on the price tag…

» Nikhil said: { Jun 9, 2008 - 08:06:05 }

» Ashish said: { Jul 1, 2008 - 06:07:27 }

I think that FZ150 is far more better than R15 in terms of cost, style & looks. It looks like this bike will surely be a hit in India if launched @ price tag of arnd 60-65K. Also it will change the scenarios of the bikes launched in India.

One look at the specifications and something is wrong ……. I am not at all a genius when it comes to bike technology but my love for them is second to none … and dare I say that “0-100 kmph : 30 seconds” is best left for Mahindra’s old work horse’s …. There are many other follies with these specifications … BROTHER!!! What are you upto?

Initially the bike comes in 2 colours i.e red & balck.

its such a disappoinment to see that this bike is not being launched before Durga puja ..as this is the biggest festival in east India.

i wanted to show of this bike as this is one of its KIND. and tell you the price is not more than 75k ..i confirmed it from my friend who is a sales manger of yamaha in kolkata… if i aint getting this bike b4 6th of sept. then i am going for a pulsar 200.

» caprish08 said: { Sep 17, 2008 - 10:09:40 }

Guyz, I visited the showroom and checked out the vitals.. no test ride is offered yet though! Looks are great- engine specs by far beat the best in the sector- front fork(suspension) look much stronger than normal- Radial rear adds to the mochoness and safety- Center mass design really shows- Plastic casing around the fuel tank looks good but i donno how is the paint on plastic going to appear after a while-Sitting position is comfortable though with almost straight(horizontal) handle bar- Two things to look for …
1. /cost of the tubeless/radial tyres 2. Mileage.
Overall, Its a great change at affordable price tag

I have been waiting for a change from my pulsar.. and i believe FZ150 is a good bet

however, i read in the above post that the milage is 30kms/per litre!! does the bike drink so much fuel??

any1 has the correct number with respect to the mileage?!

» Sanjeev, Surat said: { Sep 22, 2008 - 10:09:47 }

the mileage will be aroung 45kmpl with normal driving conditions. 30kms/litre? it absolutely farce & goofed-up. somebody may be looking “FZ 16″ and talking ‘karizma’.

» Srini said: { Sep 24, 2008 - 06:09:43 }

Hi Sohail, change ur pulsar. This FZ16 will rock the street. The name is FZ16 Lord of the Street. The mileage will be 40-45 only. The Cost is 74K. The bike is 160cc with 15bHP. The bike weights 137Kg. The top speed given by company is 132Km/hr. This is the first indian bike with radial tube less tyre. The engine is big with oil capacity of 1.2ltrs. the booking has started before week in chennai. The bike has not yet released. Yamaha will launch in this depavali.

i don’t know about yamaha extraordinarily until i saw yamahafz16 :shock:
some more specifications should be made on the front look to make it win first in style and then on road when in competition with r15,karizma (hero honda),pulsar220(bajaj) and apache(tvs) :razz:

» harish chandra said: { Oct 26, 2008 - 04:10:22 }

i also think the price should be reasonably between 60-70k
and more over when comes to millage it should be in between 45-60km/litre
and also a blue color should be released to compare its style with r15
if the above specifications are made to my standard i as a customer will buy it now paying 70k on spot
