Yamaha Fazer 150cc Review

The new Yamaha FZ 2009 was launched in India after the huge success of Yamaha’s other variants such as YZF R15, Yamaha FZ16 and the Yamaha FZS.

The Yamaha FZ 150 was launched in the Indian market after keeping its fans on a long wait, while the rest of the branded bike makers and Yamaha’s competitors rolled down many of their bike variants one after the other.

Yamaha Fazer

The Fazer 150 was first uncovered in the Auto Expo and the bike was officially launched in July 2009. Considering the fact that apart from Yamaha’s success of other models, Libero had been one model that received a big thumbsdown and Yamaha’s brave move to bring in Fazer 150 in spite of the failure needs to be patted and appreciated.

Looks and Styling
The global model of Yamaha Fazer 150cc is the third variant in India, and it is built along the line of Yamaha FZ16. In terms of looks Yamaha has followed the latest International trend and tried to give it an ‘insect-look’ and that certainly gives unique look to the bike.

Coming to the design of the new Yamaha Fazer it cannot be described as stunning or something out of the world, but still the bike features a new look and only time will decide how the Indian bikers are going to accept this model. Of course, one cannot ignore the detailed finishing touch; it is simply awesome. To keep up to the image of the insect-look the twin light protrusion in the front adds more distinctness to the looks.

The Fazer 150 is adorned with aluminium clamps, twin-pod instrument clsuter, speedometer and the usual lighting system that is indeed a shared feature of all Yamaha models. The fuel tank is quite huge and it is stylised with scoops that extend towards the functional knee-recesses. The tank almost seems to flow into the side panels and the filler is very similar to what we find in the Libero. The seat looks quite comfortable with an eye-catching grab rail that also supports the tail lamp. The silencer and the aluminium frame give an edge to the bike’s overall design.

Engine
The new Yamaha FZ 2009 is powered by a four-stoke, two-valve 150cc engine. The power generation can touch up to 14PS at 7500RPM and the fuel capacity is 12 litres that is inclusive of the reserve. Yamaha has kept its injection system intact. The new 150cc Yamaha has stuck to all the Indian emission norms; the bike has the potential to burn out the unburned mixture by releasing the oxygen inside the exhaust port. There is also a provision for the exhaust gases, which gets purified with the help of a catalytic converter that is inside the silencer.

Handling
The carburettor has got a unique valve that monitors excess cylinder suction and has the ability to adjust the mixture according to the content available. This feature enables you to have a comfortable ride even during the tough ride conditions. But one cannot dispute the fact that Yamaha FZ 150 is a smooth riding machine with shortcoming and that is the absence of the fifth gear, a big let down in these days where all bikes are coming 5-gear transmission.

Price and colour availability
The Yamaha Fazer 150cc is priced at Rs 72,000 and comes in attractive colors options of blue, black, red, and orange. There is no doubt to the acute competition in the two-wheeler market currently existent. In any case, we will need to give time to know how the new Yamaha 150cc is performing on Indian roads with the Indian consumers.

          Mileage of this bike is depended on its first 4000 kms; if you have driven your bike under 70 without using power strokes and high pickup, then your bike gives a good life and mileage. my bike hit a mileage of 47 kmpl in city and upto 55 in highway

          and upto 55 in highways;

  2. Alok

    Is this bike is better than pulsar . Becouse pulsar 220 cc bike also comming around 80k .

    • Guruprasad

      Hi,
      I previously owned a Pulsar150 DTSi(2005 model) and now the Yamaha Fazer 153cc, completed 1st service 2 days back;

      Look wise, this is definately better than the Pulsar;
      But my old pulsar was having more RAW power compared to this one, also the mileage of Pulsar was 50+, while this is giving me 45 -47 kmpl,(which is ok for me), but I am feeling this has little less powerful than Pulsar;

      One thing that was not good in pulsar was the size of the front tyres;

      Technology wise, pulsar seems to be ahead of Yamaha;

      I sold my pulsar, as it was becoming costly to maintain; Only time will tell the reliability of my New bike!!

      • Javeed

        I just dont agree regarding power guru prasad, I purchased Yamaha fazer just one month ago… even my previous bike was pulsar, comparing everything is more for Fazer, I seen the performance of both, Pickup is very high compare to pulsar, i checked the pickup it touches 90 i n seconds..
        And look and handling everything perfect.. and about milage abviously the bike which has more pickup wil give less milage (its 45kms per liter)..
        And even its eye catcher bike… Go guys grab Fazer…. instead of pulsar…

      • ravi

        I am from visakhapatnam, I test drove Fazer and FZ16 , Fazer is much better in comfort and ride and handling part then pulsar ,have my mind set on it but getting confused should I go for Pulsar. Can you please advise.

  22. suman

    yeah mileage is a great concern for this bike, specially on city traffic..and also it dont allow me to change it gear to 5th position..battery consumption is another headache. It only has got looks,price is too high for a 153cc segment bike compared to other. Im really frustated with yamaha’s such a odd product. Infact I own a fazer myself for last 1 year.

  23. Manveer Singh Sidhu

    when single driver milehe is38 km. when the two riders mileage is28 km and pickup is also down with two passengers

  30. chigwell1779

    About what ican tell about the fazer bike,its awesome.u can’t have five fingers in desi ghee u should have to sacrifice some things but telling u truth i,m northern i travel to himachal,peek places done 10000km in just 8months never have troubled with this bike,its truthworthyi never done stupid things like some city boys do like lifting,jumping.just have done normal services thats all. mileage depends upon various factors ur driving,handling.gears,brakes,traffic but in conclusion it 40 in city and around 0 on the highways.so to all guys this is best bike if u looking for all best things.yes yamaha
