About FZ V3

Yamaha FZ V3 is a commuter bike available in 1 variant in india. Its price starts from ₹99,879 (ex-showroom). Yamaha FZ V3 generates 12.2 bhp of power and 13.6 nm of torque from its 149cc engine. Single cylinder engine of FZ V3 has a 5 speed manual gearbox. With both rear and front disk brakes, Yamaha FZ V3 also has an anti-locking braking system. This 132 kg bike is available in 2 colours.

The FZ is the model that revived Yamaha’s fortunes in India, and since its launch, it has been the gold standard for the 150cc sporty commuter, as far as the sales figures are concerned. It offered a number of new technologies like radial tyres and a centralised fuel tank, at the time of its launch. It is also one of the pioneers of fuel injection, having made the entire FZ range FI at a time when its competitors were still depending heavily on carburetted variants.

The next generation of the FZ is here, and it is not a major update. Single-channel ABS has been added, which is now compulsory, an LED headlamp, and the instrument cluster with white backlighting. The fuel injection has been tweaked to offer better midrange but the peak power output remains the same at 13bhp and 12.8Nm. The split seat has strangely regressed to a single-seat, despite the overall design becoming a little more aggressive.

In the latest update, the company has launched the BS-VI variant of the motorcycle that now gets a BS-VI compliant powerplant. The engine continues to be the same 149cc single-cylinder air-cooled unit with fuel-injection that now produces 12.2bhp at 7,250rpm and 13.6Nm at 5,500rpm. Transmission duties continue to be handled by a five-speed gearbox.

The FZ competes with other commuter-oriented sporty motorcycles in the 150-160cc segment like the Honda XBlade, Bajaj Pulsar NS160 and TVS Apache RTR 160 4V.

BikeWale's Take

The Yamaha FZ V3 is more muscular in terms of design as compared to the earlier variant. The bike offers a comfortable riding position along with modern features that put it on par with its rivals.

  •  4Lord of the streets the city king is back 4 days ago by Krishna, Thiruvananthapuram

    My 1st bike was bajaj discover 150f. I upgraded it because of its low performance and very low mileage. I took for 3 months to decide my 2nd one. In my list ns200, apache 200. But my needs are so basic. I mostly drive on city, and take tours often in 2 or 3 months gap.
