    My family has always been a yamaha oriented. More than 10 years ago on 22 feb 2009 i bought my first bike yamaha fz 16 midnight black edition. I still remember when i got a call from the showroom around 9pm that my bike has arrived, i could not wait till the morning, i had to go see it. There she stood in the dark, all black , yes love at first sight do happens!Till now i have rode the bike more than 150k + kilometers. From riding between traffics, to completely modifying it into a stunt machine, taking it for long interstate rides from visakhapantam to kolkata 900km within 13 hours over night, every weekend rides to araku valley for almost two years and withstanding the hudhud cyclone in vizag it has never given up on me. Riding experience Due to its small wheelbase and upright sitting position the bike is very nimble and easy to ride in city conditions.When it comes to highway rides it was lacking in cruising speed, i solved the problem by replacing my front sprocket with a bigger one. It helped me cruise at 90+ without much strain on the engine. We all know how good fz is when it comes to stunting. During my amateur days, installed a wheelie bar, cut down some extra weights from the bike and it was good to go. With bigger front forks it gave good front feel and stability under hard braking and long rolling stoppies. Truly it was an all rounder machine.I modified my fz loads of time. One of the most craziest was from race concepts bangaluru (joel joseph). Initially i just installed simota air filter and a customer made exhaust. That itself have me boost to keep with much higher cubic capacity bikes. Post that after installing a bigger 180cc bore with cam shaft, cdi and bigger carb. The bike accelerated so fast that with a proper launch and perfect shift i once stayed side by side till 4th gear with a cbr 250 in a drag race. But everything comes with a price. "with more power comes more responsibility" we all know. Hence the bike could only manage to run 15k km at its full potential considering the first 3k km is used for running in and setting up the engine. But that 15k feeling is worth every bit.Me and my friends used to ride to araku valley 220 km from vizag city every weekend. The ghat roads was loved by the fz. It loved to be cornered. It loved to be braked in. Instead of owning a 390 cc bike now i am considering to that the fz to leh. So hence it says it all with regards to fz and its love for twisty roads. Servicing and maintenance I think just because i have taken good care of the bike in its initial days, the bike has not problem what so ever and still serving my needs after more than 10 years, serving more than 150k +km.Every machine has a heart and we should take care of it. All my life i never remember not changing my engine oil on time. With regards to cost the bike is not of the best pocket friendly machine. After 10 years of use, sprocket price is 1400 , brake pads under 400, engine oil under 400. Just right. Pros Easy to lean riding - machine.Stability Braking Corner stability Reliability Cons Lack of abs Fuel efficiency - which they rectified after introducing fi engine.

    I purchased my falcon(fz16) on Aug 2015 and from that day onward am very happy and satisfied with my bike. The best thing is that it is fuel efficient, has got good brakes, it is okay for occasional tours and the pillion seat is comfortable too.
    One of the major drawback of this bike is the stock rear tyre as it is very puncture prone ( got 6 punctures in total )and the stock headlight is very weak (35w), so i changed my tyre to ceat at around 23k and fitted 2 Cree fog lamps. After 3 years of ownership I get about 40kmpl at city and 45kmpl on highways and the maintenance cost is cheap if you do by roadside mechanic not at yamaha service room.
    Overall i can say is its worth the money i paid for the machine.

    It's superb bike, it's amazing.

    I fall in love with this bike.

    I forgot everything when i m with my bike.

    It is having a killer look.

    I do not need any girl friend, if my bike is always with me.

    Rocking performance. Low maintenance. Super pickup.

    Main lovable part is, smooth sound on raising accelerator.

    I was in dubai and when i came back to trivandrum 2010 i was 12 yrs old at that time my uncle took a yamaha fazer and went long rides with my uncle now he converted to fz and the bike had a lot of complaints reason is that he doesn't look after it and the second bike was gixxer 2017he said that gixxer has no power or mileage at that time he decided to sell and buy yamaha fz v1.0 but at that time that bike has been discontinued at that time i was 19 yrs old and i didn't get license Actually i am not that much interested in bikes and superbikes after a year i got license and i learnt to ride bikes perfectly so after riding a yamaha fz16 a friend of mine i decided to buy that model but when i went to showroom the company said that fz16 has discontinued and fzv2.0 is launched and fz25 too But when i rode 3 models of fz Fz v1.0 Fz v2.0Fz v3.0 The best and smooth ride was fz16 and fz 25 After that i became a die hard fan of yamaha then i rode all the yamaha bikes but when i rode every yamaha bikes the best bike is fz16Then i decided to buy an used yamaha fz v1.0 when i searched on olx and checked on bike shops most of them are complaints no genuine kms and over used And when i asked most the owners owned this bike they wont sell When i asked why they said that if we sell this bike i won't get the same model So i decided to buy fz 25 abs and i booked it at muthoot yamaha then i again decided to buy used yamaha fz v1.0 then i went to all the districts in kerala but it was a waste of time and money At-last i decided to buy a yamaha fz250 and i bought it on january 2020 The bike is smooth no backpains time to time service and i really loved it Another yamaha bikes i mean Mt15 R15 v3 These bikes have same engine same power but low on performance and do not get that much mileage these bikes are 155cc and 6 speed transmission and the main defect is the seating capacity in both the bikes From january 2020 to june 2020 I covered 680kms only the bike is smooth no backpain comfortable for long rides no maintenance But the main defect is that it is a 249cc engine but does not have 6 speed transmission only 5 speed.

    A little background about me, till 2013 (i was 24 then) i preferred cars, loathed motorcycles and had never ridden one. However, once all my friends had purchased their motorcycles and had their dedicated pillions (yes, that's what i mean), i was left behind to use the public transport. So i woke up to reality and decided to get myself a bike ( not a car, coz i was a fresher and horrible city traffic). So started the hunt.

    All "gyaan" from the wanna-be gurus/babas cleared 1 things : as a beginner and for my proportions, i should go with a 150cc. Point taken. Next "gyaan" was all about mileage, cheap maintenance, availability etc and all started promoting their brands and models. Ears hurt with sounds like bajaj pulsar 150/180 , honda shine, tvs apache rtr 160. I was confused.

    Returning from office once, i noticed a bike with a never-seen-before wide rear tyre, a hulking presence, a chiseled tank, a very different genre-look to it. I couldn't see the name but the image got stuck in my mind. Yes, it was unlike any other and more importantly, i fell for it. It was love at first sight, a bond forever....It had to be my first bike. Many would have been through the same. I got introduced to the yamaha fz 16.

    Excited, i dint ask any feedback/reviews, just collected the cash, made the payment and was called to collect the bike. Its then i realized that i had forgotten a crucial aspect ; i dint know how to ride. The bike was in my hands. I had to take it home 6kms away. Understanding the lack of options, i sat on the bike to take it home whilst i learn to drive.

    First thing i noticed, the welcoming position, the rider triangle, the comfort; all seemed perfect. I did not need to get adjusted to it. It felt made according to me or for me. I started the engine, a lovely idling tone from the exhaust made me happier, no vibration from anywhere confused me. Time to head home.

    Slot into first (it was smooth) and it starts nicely, slot into second, third and so. Every passing moment increases the understanding of how-to-ride, the confidence on the machine, and the bond.It was that easy. I made it to home (very slowly though) without any stalling, stopping or jerks. Since then it has been with me. Suming up the experience from past 4 years, i would love to have it forever and over any other bike, its that good.

    Till date i have 52000kms of riding experience, 25000kms being with my fz. This diverse experience keeps me attached to the fz. Even today, it may not be the most-powerful 150, but it is the most reliable and ready-to-go even if you take it out after a month.

    Listing out the cons first (w.R.T my ownership) its original rear tyre (revz) is a little too puncture-prone and the headlight is dull/insufficient. That's it. Change the tyre and install a higher power bulb. Issue solved.

    For the pros; first, i get 45/47-50kmpl in city/highway, solo top-speeds is a speedo 122kmph, solo-long-duration cruising speed is 100-105kmph, longest ride was of 1500kms with no issues, can do fair bit of cornering, silent city/highway operation, vibe free, grippy tires and really low maintenance. The bike never heated, never lost composure, never shows any degrade.

    The home/self maintenance involves weekly water wash and polish, chain clean at every 300kms using vim liquid and lubing with chain spray, oil and oil filter change at every 3000kms, air-filter change when deemed necessary, regular spark-plug clean.

    After the 2 years - 6 free services period, service center visits are at 8-10 months duration for basic chain tension adjustment, tappet adjustment, brake pad clean/replacement etc as per the manual. Only 1 chain sprocket change has been made. And if needed, all parts are priced cheap enough.

    All-in-all, the bike build quality is the best. Easy to ride, hassle free to maintain, nothing goes wrong, ready for action any time you need. Just inspires you to enjoy the ride and be worry-free.

    Maybe it was the same way that this little 150cc won hearts and introduced people to the concept of street-fighters / performance motorcycles / easy-to-own good looking machine and does it even today.
