Yamaha FZS V3 Review

Detailed Review by Maxabout Team

Introduction

The Yamaha FZ series is a well-known sporty commuter motorcycle series from the Japanese manufacturer’s Indian portfolio. The first FZ motorcycle was introduced in India in 2007, and it is currently available in its third-generation form. The Yamaha FZS V3 was initially introduced in India in January 2019, and the manufacturer has now updated it for 2022. The updated model is equipped with Bluetooth connectivity, which is available in all color variants now. Detailed information about this bike is available below.

Yamaha FZS V3 Design and Style

Talking about the appearance, this BS6 Yamaha FZS V3 is a popular, aggressive, muscular-looking naked streetfighter bike. The new bike has modest aesthetic changes as well as minor technical specification adjustments with a new BS6 standard emission engine. It is currently available in five attractive colour choices with new graphics that are Matte Red, Dark Matte Blue, Metallic Black, Metallic Grey and Majesty Red.

In terms of design updates, it now has a headlight with an all-LED setup, LED DRLs, an LED taillight, halogen indicators, a strengthened fuel tank with faux chrome-finished side air vents, and the 3D emblem. The new Yamaha Motorcycle Connect X Bluetooth technology gives some fascinating functions like answering back, e-locking, finding my bike, and so on. The safety front is strengthened by the installation of the side-stand engine cutoff feature.

The bike continues to use the same middle-compound single-piece step-up seat. As per the body dimensions, they are as follows: 1990 mm in length, 780 mm in width, 1080 mm in height, and a wheelbase of 1330 mm with 165 mm of ground clearance. It comes with a 13-litre fuel tank capacity, and the entire kerb weight of the bike is only 135 kg.

Yamaha FZS V3 Instrument Console

The new-gen model of the FZS V3 comes with a negative LED instrument console that displays crucial information, including a fuel gauge, a digital odometer, an adjustable trip meter, a high and low beam indication, an ABS light, a digital tachometer, a digital speedometer, and a digital clock as well. The Bluetooth isn’t indicated on the instrument cluster, and one can access it only through the app. Moreover, the instrumentation is simple and small; however, it’s extremely visible and easily readable.

Yamaha FZS V3 Engine and Gearbox

Looking forward to the engine specs of the motorcycle, it is powered by a BS6 compliant 149cc, air-cooled, SOHC, 4-stroke, 2-valve, single-cylinder engine with a fuel injection system and Yamaha’s blue core technology that churns out 12.4 HP at 7250 rpm and 13.3 Nm of torque at 5500 rpm. The engine is coupled to a Constant mesh, 5-Speed gearbox with a wet multiple-disc clutch.

Yamaha FZS V3 Brakes, Suspension and Tyres

Furthermore, the braking duties on this sporty bike are handled by disc brakes on both the front and rear ends. The rear disc brake measures 220 mm, while the front disc brake is 282 mm and includes Bosch single-channel ABS (Anti-Lock Braking System) for improved braking performance.

As per the suspension, it comes with 41 mm telescopic forks at the front and mono suspension at the back, which is 7-step adjustable. If we talk about the tyres in use by the motorcycle, they are tubeless tyres with alloy wheels. The front and rear are both 17-inch MRF tyres, while the rear tyre is radiant and is 100/80-17 MC 52P in the front and 140/60-R17 MC 63P in the rear.

Yamaha FZS V3 Top Speed and Mileage

When it comes to performance, this Japanese bike reaches 60 kmph in just 4.73 seconds and 100 kmph in 15.17 seconds. It provides comfortable rides and does not vibrate, even at 7000rpm, which is really amazing. This BS6 compliant bike is capable of reaching a top speed of 115 kmph, which is not a high speed but gives a safe ride to the bikers. While using the blue core technology, it’s really fuel-efficient and provides approximately 40-45 kmpl mileage.

Verdict - Should You Buy Yamaha FZS V3?

To wrap it up, we can say the bike is overall worth buying. Although every bike has some pros and cons, if we talk about the pros, the bike is stylish and classy due to its color choice and design and comfortable as well. Whether it comes to suspension, mileage, or riding position, the fuel tank gives a perfect space for legs, making it suitable for daily use.

On the other hand, it has some cons too, as the seat is hard and, because of that, it is not handy for long rides. Also, the pillion rider feels like the bike is underpowered. Another drawback is that it heats easily owing to the lack of a liquid-cooled engine and a headlight beam that is really low and makes the ride difficult at night.

Despite some negative points, the Yamaha FZS V3 is still among the most popular bikes in the Indian vehicle market. It competes against the TVS Apache RTR 160 4V, the Bajaj Pulsar NS160, the Hero Xtreme 160R and the Suzuki Gixxer 155.
