Before I begin, let me get obvious out of the way. Yamaha FZ 3.0 has low power and torque output figures than its competitors. With this and seemingly the only flaw about the bike, out of the way, let’s discuss why the Yamaha FZ 3.0 is a great 150cc motorcycle.
The trend nowadays is of small displacement high powered bikes which can deliver mileage and performance. Such bikes usually have the chassis of a performance bike but lack a big engine. Two such bikes in India are Yamaha R15 V3 and the recently launched KTM Duke 125. Both are built on the same philosophy I mentioned above, so let’s compare them to figure out which one is the best.
We all have heard about the MT-03 series from different places around the Internet. So far, most of us know two things about the bike. Number 1, it is a Naked motorcycle from Yamaha and Number 2, it is not available in India, with no plan to launch either. But exactly how different is the MT-03 from the FZ-25 which we get in India. Both bikes just have a 72 cc (249 for FZ-25 & 321 for MT-03) difference, are of the same type, and made by the same manufacturer. All of this must point to a huge number of similarities, right? well, no. Allow me to explain.
Recently Yamaha updated its YZF-R125 along the lines of its bigger siblings, and what once was a starter sports bike has become a lot more. Here 5 Reasons explaining why the Yamaha R125 is a Game Changer-
Just like the Honda refuses to update the CBR 250R for the current market, Yamaha too has played safe for all the past 3 years, but no more. Because the updated Yamaha R3 is coming with a lot of new upgrades.
A piece of PVS Pipe is what seems to be the remedy proposed by the company to the known problem. The side panels of the fuel tank started to come loose whenever a little force was applied to them. Although it spawned a number of memes and a lot of articles, they all seem to have been in vain because Yamaha Motors India’s answer to the loose tank problem is a "PVC Pipe". Let me explain.
Among all the commotion across two-wheeler industry in India we have almost forgotten about the beloved street fighter from Yamaha, the FZ 2.0. Which single-handedly secured company's foothold in the Indian market. This bike is still selling in good numbers despite all the competition surrounding it.
Auto Expo 2018 came with its set of new launches and among them, the most prominent one was the launch of the highly anticipated Yamaha R15 V3. This bike was already being sold in the international market but on 7th February 2018, it made its way to India. It’s a classic tale with a twist because the Indian spec R15 lacks USD and an ABS. This led to the young biker community in our country feeling a bit down. So let’s dissect this bike and take a look at all the worrying factors ourselves.
The competition for the 250cc motorcycle lineup is getting heavier day by day, the manufacturers have found out the secret that the market is moving away from 100-150cc segment motorcycles to 200+ segment motorcycles. So we thought we must compare the best in class motorcycles from Yamaha and KTM. Both of the motorcycles gave us a great experience, but a competition always has only one winner. Let's find out who wins this comparo.
Yamaha launched their all new Fazer 25 the other day in a press event, making it their second quarter liter motorcycle in the market.
