FZ 150I Overview

The Yamaha FZ150i is one of the best selling naked sports bikes in Malaysia and has enjoyed immense popularity since it was launched back in 2014. Yamaha updated the 2017 model of FZ150i and introduced it in three new colours- red, yellow, and blue. It comes with an array of improved features amongst which the most notable ones are a rear inner fender, advanced security lock, cast wheel and wider tubeless tyres and a new undercowl. There's a semi-digital instrument console which consists of a digital speedometer, fuel gauge, and an analogue tachometer. It draws power from the proven 149.8 cc, four- stroke, four-valve SOHC, liquid cooled, fuel injection engine that generates a max power of 16.3 hp and peak torque of 14.5 Nm, mated to a five-speed gearbox. Currently, this street naked Yamaha is offered only in a single variant. The Yamaha FZ150i competes against the likes of the Honda RS150R, the Modenas V15 and the Demak Warrior.

Yamaha FZ 150I Design

The Yamaha FZ150i looks all sporty and edgy, posing a macho look. The front features a  LED headlight with long handlebars, while the distinctively black colored alloy wheels add to the stylish looks of the bike. The beefed-up fuel tank features a sporty dual tone with the Yamaha emblem. It also comes with a stylish rear inner fender and a new body coloured under cowl. With the three new colours being introduced, the FZ150i looks quite appealing.

FZ 150I Ride & Handling

Built on a diamond frame, the Yamaha FZ150i provides a comfortable riding experience. Suspension duties rest with telescopic forks up front and a monoshock at the rear. It rides on 17-inch cast alloy wheels shod with wider tubeless tyres (90/80 front, 120/70 rear), which provides a stable ride.

 

Yamaha FZ 150I Engine & Fuel Consumption

The Yamaha FZ150i draws power from a 149.8 cc, four- stroke, four-valve SOHC, liquid cooled engine that pumps out a max power of 16.3 hp at 8,500 rpm and peak torque of 14.5 Nm at 7,500 rpm. The power is transmitted to the rear wheel through a five-speed gearbox. The engine also features a fuel injection system for better mileage. As per Yamaha’s claims, the FZ150i consumes 2.6-litre of fuel every 100 km and the fuel tank can store maximum 12-litre of fuel.

FZ 150I Braking & Safety

Braking on the FZ150i is handled by single disc at both the front and the rear. Although the standard discs are pretty efficient in bringing the bike to a still even at high speeds, we feel that Yamaha should have introduced ABS in it. If not standard, then at least as an option. Speaking of safety, Yamaha has equipped the bike with an advanced security key lock which has a key shutter with two track key to enhance the bike’s safety.

    Since my childhood days, I am quite fascinated by the possession of bikes, especially the ones that act like they are the real horses. For maintaining horses is notorious, I, after much of trouble resolved to stick to bikes only. When a person enters my garage, an array of different coloured bikes seems to be quite attractive for all, and Read More

    This is one of those light-weight bikes which can make you feel great. With great color combinations this bike is the one making a lot of noise in the auto world recently. Though the mechanical parts of the old model have been retained the exteriors are extremely modified and well-defined. Though the vehicle just has a 150cc engine, the kind Read More

    Azim Ogo 27, 2018 for Yamaha FZ 150I

    Yamaha has always been my favorite brand. My previous bike was YAMAHA EGO SOLARIZ and I wanted to purchase a new one. I was waiting for a newer version and Yamaha launched FZ150i. I recently purchased my favorite blue shade. It provides with 12.0 L fuel tank size and 149.8 cc displacement. I wanted something with more oil capacity and Read More

    YHA Jun 06, 2018 for Yamaha FZ 150I

    Being a fan of naked bikes, I have always been crazy about the FZ since its launch. I like the macho stance that the bike is built on and the chunky fuel tank. I have seen that the FZ in some other markets is slightly different than the one here in Malaysia, but I like the domestic design. The 150-cc Read More
