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.
One day when I went to a Yamaha showroom I saw an Astral Blue FZ-S V2 showcased. The sculpted tanks and the Blue Core emblem caught my attention. On inquiring the sales person I got the details like 149cc engine combined with a 5 speed gear box producing raw power of 9.7kw/8000 rpm and a maximum torque of 12.8 N-m. The rear wide tire and the front 41mm hydraulic suspension were awesome and I FELL IN LOVE WITH HER.
It is something to consider why is there a sudden increase in the use of monoshocks in the sports bikes segment. Is it really better than dual shocks? And if yes, then why did it take so long to enter the market?
In a brand new series of "Do It Yourself" today we are discussing about adjusting rear Monoshock suspension of Yamaha FZ-S Version 2.0. The latest 150ccc fuel injected version of FZ from Yamaha has 7-step adjustable rear Mono suspension. The feature of adjustable Monoshock on one hand is very handy and on the other hand due to ignorance it is seldom utilized by the rider in real world scenario.
The talk of the town Yamaha FZ-S Version 2.0 is finally road tested today by BikesIndia. Yamaha recently launched the new FZ-S V2.0 and shocked all of us by introducing new 149cc engine to the bike which actually is 4 cubic capacity lesser then the previous FZ series bikes. The reduction in the cubic capacity of the bike also leads to the reduction in power figure.
