Full Review


Yamaha Fazer-the only bike in this segment with super look & muscular type body....twin headlight increases the style quotient further. Biggest back tyre in the segement.looks great from all angles.....simply mind blowing.....

Engine Performance, Fuel Economy and Gearbox

 Yamaha Fazer is loaded with 153 cc & a maximum power of 14 is pretty much powerfull...but if you can throw in a few more bucks you get Bajaj Pulsar 220F which is a powerstar.anyways this engine really is giving good results.but at higher speeds engine sound is weird(higher speed means 75+kmh).Fuel efficiency is one of the area in which Yamaha Fazer should really improve.Because petrol price is hiking in a rapid rate. This bike is loaded with Chain Drive transmission.It is smooth.....found no problem with that.

Ride Quality & Handling

Bike is perfect one to ride at speed of 50-65 kmh.further that speed engine sound is not that pleasant & also lower speed can reduce the chances of bike accidents.so I recommend to ride the bike at a speed of 50-60kmh.Even though Yamaha Fazer is tagged as a touring bike by company I dont see that much comfort when you are off for a long drive.Bike has good stability thanks to huge rear tyre of Yamaha Fazer. Suspensions are perfect.It would much more better if the rear is also disc brake.MRF Zapper tyres are used.It gives a decent stability but at times a skided when applied rear drum break. Bike is not that heavy as it looks. So no concerns with handling

Final Words

In short, Yamaha Fazer, apart from the fuel efficiency concerns it is a good one to grab.Stylish looks of the bike is the biggest positive of this bike.Then quality of the bike is great....thanks to Yamaha for not making any compromise in the quality.You would just love to run down the city with this bike....truly a MANLY BIKE...

Areas of improvement  

 Fuel Efficiency

 Rear brake(disc brake is a welcome addition)
