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.
Tips for Yamaha FZ16
1) Change the stock rear tyre as it is very puncture prone.
2) Fit fog lamps or change to stock headlight to more powerful ones.
3) You can add on the fazer windshield as there is much wind buffeting when you hit above 80km/h cruise speed.
