Yamaha FZ V3.0 begins by correcting most of the mistakes of its previous version the FZ 2.0. The third iteration of FZ makes a rear disc, a single channel ABS, and LED lights as standard. The bike builds upon the same 150cc motor by increasing the compression ratio and changing the ECU maps.
Thus, as a result, the new FZ 3.0 accelerates quicker, stops on a dime and has no issues traveling during the night time. Yamaha engineers knew that they have to keep the “bump-in-power” upgrade for the BS 6 variant, so they shifted the powerband towards the low and mid-range. As a result, the Yamaha FZ 3.0 has a peppier pickup than its predecessor.
Next big upgrade is in the braking department. The rear disc has been made standard along with a single channel ABS. This adhesion of optional parts into one standard package, keeps the position of Yamaha, as a quality motorcycle manufacturer, intact.
In the end, FZ 3.0 is about simplicity and function. It does both along with a pinch of peppiness. And while some manufacturers are still pumping out a decade old model in 2019, Yamaha’s third iteration of FZ series outshines most of them. Until now, the TVS Apache RTR 160 4v was dominating the 160cc market and with Yamaha FZ 3.0, the customers will have another great option at their disposal. Check out the Yamaha FZ 3.0 in a showroom near you and you will not be disappointed.
