The FZ-S Version 2.0 is the second generation of the FZ series commuter motorcycle, the FZ16 being the original. Design-wise, the model is extremely similar to the standard FZ V 2.0 which gets a two piece seat, revised bikini faring, and shrouds beneath the fuel tank.
The FZ-S is powered by an air-cooled, fuel injected 149cc single-cylinder engine. The engine produces 13bhp of power and 12.8Nm of torque. The company has recently introduced a rear disc brake as an option for the FZ-S, at a premium of Rs 4000 over the variants with a rear drum brake.
The new FZ-S is available in matte green, white, grey, black, dark blue and cyan. It has a new paint scheme called ‘The Dark Night’ which is essentially an all-matte black paint scheme with chrome accents. It takes on the Bajaj Pulsar NS160, Honda CB Hornet 160R, Honda XBlade and the Suzuki Gixxer. The Yamaha FZ-S 2.0 is priced at Rs 87,000 onward (ex-showroom Delhi).
Yamaha FZ S V 2.0 Expert Opinion
Great handling and stability
The brakes work really well
Tyres offer good grip
Could be Better
Lacks power compared to its rivals
Lacks modern features
The Yamaha FZ S V 2.0 gets a smooth and refined engine along with a slick gearbox. It also imbibes confidence in the rider owing to good tyres and braking performance. The motorcycle does all this while looking stylish and muscular, thanks to its edgy body panels and chunky rear wheel.

Servicing is very poor.Each and every time service you end up paying lot..There are really some defects that are common to all fz s fi v2.0..Some parts like handle suspension bar sprockets and chains need periodic change.This shows part wise r&d or component level r&d is poor..And if some parts need periodic change that shows in designing and r&d part they emphasis only on cost cutting so that the manufacturing cost go down by selecting lower end material grades from suppliers. But engine part is good.Overall satisfaction is not more than 60% and now a days i do not recommend somebody for this
