Yamaha FZS V2 Review

21 Dec, 2021 12:58 PM

Quick Review by Maxabout Team

Yamaha FZS V2 Fi is powered by a 149cc engine which develops a maximum power of 12.9 Bhp and maximum torque of 12.8 Nm. The company has introduced BLUE CORE technology to improve the mileage of the bike plus they have introduced new shades for both FZ and FZS. If you want to learn how to play with colours and graphics; learn it from Yamaha. They have smartly managed to differentiate their both bikes from each other. FZS is based on the same platform of FZ16 and looks strikingly different despite having identical dimensions and shape. The face of the bike has some noticeable changes. FZS sports a small but trendy tinted visor just above its modern headlight. This all makes a great difference to its looks and this bike looks more aggressive than FZ16. The recently launched revised version of FZS features new smoky graphics on its uplifted fuel tank.

This bike comes in dual tone colours and can easily be identified. Moreover, the bike has racy stripes on its rims which look cool. The dual-layered, graphite finished exhaust is also different than FZ16 and goes well with its black coloured engine and alloy wheels. It features new wider rear seat and fender similar to FZ16. The bike looks exactly the carbon copy of FZ16 when seen from the back. New wider fender complements its fatty radial tyre and tail light. The bike features the same updated instrument console of FZ Version 2.0. It has a digital speedometer, odometer, trip meter and fuel gauge with LED indicators. There is nothing analogue on this instrument console. The illumination light is also orange in colour which could have been blue for a change.

The brilliant single-cylinder, SOHC 149cc motor of FZ16 Version 2.0 is used in this bike. It's a four-stroke, air-cooled engine which can churn out a maximum power output of 12.9 bhp at 8000 rpm. The maximum torque of 12.8 Nm is achieved at 6000 rpm. This bike is also incorporated with a five-speed manual gearbox with one gear down and four gears up-shift pattern. There is no difference in the performance of this extremely refined engine. It's a very responsive and powerful engine with a strong low and mid-range. The bike suffers no turbo lag at any rpm and cruises easily in any gear. There are no vibrations and harshness in this engine. Even after crossing 6000rpm, the engine remains extremely silent. Moreover, this 149cc engine is equipped with a top quality of gearbox.

You can't complain about anything in the gear transitions. It's very smooth and easy to shift gears. The only problem that you can notice is the absence of power at high speeds. The bike doesn't offer much after 6000rpm. However, if you use it in the city, there are no issues but once you open the throttle completely on highways, you will search for power which goes missing. Gear ratios are kept short so that you can utilize most of the power of this engine within no time. Its low fuel efficiency used to bother the riders but as per the company claims, the FZS Version 2.0 Fi is equipped with BLUE CORE technology which has improved the mileage with no reduction in the overall performance. The high-performance engine of this bike can give you a mileage of around 35-40 kmpl in daily usage while on highways; it can give you a fuel efficiency of around 45-50 kmpl.

Seating of FZS Version 2.0 is similar to its sibling FZ16. The bike has rear-set footpegs and wider new seat which makes it comfortable than before. The knees will automatically stick to its fuel tank offering nice hold of this bike. There is everything similar on this bike except for the handlebar which is positioned a bit lower than FZ16 which is hardly noticeable. This is done for a more relaxed position while driving with a perfect palm grip. Yamaha FZS Version 2.0 features a very powerful and effective suspension system. It has telescopic forks at its front with a mono shock absorber at the back providing wheel travel of 120mm. It's a very comfortable bike and you can feel it as soon as you get on to it. If it's about braking, FZS confirms you a very safe and enjoyable ride with its braking system. The bike sports a disc brake of 267mm at its front and a drum brake of 130mm at its back. This brake system works adequately and you can always sense the control on this bike.

Be it city's traffic or highways, this bike is surely going to please you with its ride and handling. It offers you a very convenient and enjoyable ride. Its broad tyres and the perfectly mated suspension keeps this bike grounded on high speeds and sharp corners. Its wheelbase of 1334mm and ground clearance of 160mm brings extra stability to this bike. The bike exactly follows your command and steers accurately. The riding stance also encourages you to drive it hard. The bike is capable enough to digest most of the potholes and it easily settles on uneven conditions. This bike is costlier than FZ V2 by 3000 rupees. It's a smart tactic by Yamaha as this way, they are prompting those buyers who want to buy the regular FZ16 but due to less price difference, they may opt for the expensive one with visor and different colour schemes. Till now this formula has worked for Yamaha. It would have been more successful if Yamaha would have offered this bike with a rear disc brake.

can any one tell me if the FZ V2 has a magnetic tank or a non magnetic tank. I.e., are magnetic tank bags compatible with this bike ??

7 years ago

Yamaha has made an absurd and stupid decision by reducing the power output, as they wanted to increase the mileage. Well why would any one buy a bike that costs close to 95,0000, for mileage, and why should we expect from a street fighter like yamaha. Atleast they should have updated the performance and showcased along with fz25, which would have been a delight..

Grow up yamaha..

Now name a bitch who can design better styling, performance, handling, comfort & pricing better than Yamaha in India? For those who complain about the mileage please get a Platina & stop complaining. If you are choosing Yamaha then stop complaining as you are getting other values with Bajaj, Hero & Honda don't provide. For those who complain about resale value, I suggest they should buy gold instead of a bike, that will be a proper investment.

See guys I am not paid by Yamaha by any means, but since they are giving so many awesome bikes to my countrymen, I believe this company deserves some applause.

Any new upgrades of any bikes from their stable is genuinely getting some upgrades atleast. This company is not mending its products as per the Indian mindset, rather they are mending our point of views towards the bike market. That's a commendable job for any company in any segment in India.

Recently I was going through some videos of FZ-16 in youtube. Got to know that the same bike is being marketed in Latin America & other Asian countries. The specs, design, even the color scheme is identical. That is not something we can expect from any toher two wheeler manufacturer. This FZ-16 series is a huge hit in global scale. I am not complaining but our beloved Royal Enfield or Bajaj are exporting Thunderbird, Classic 350 , Pulsar etc to the overseas market with a lot more advanced feature, which we cannot get even at a higher price tag. (that's height of hypocrisy).

Hi FZsians

!5 days before i have changed my front and back tyres.

Currently using Michelin Pilot Sport 100/80-17TL for my front & Continental Conti Go!! 140/70-17TL.

Why i changed my tyres!

Here's the story began, every months after my 22000kms i used to get puncture in my rear tyre. i thought its a spell to me.

it was going on and end of the June 14 i have found nearly 8 punctures in my rear tyre.

all these punctures are close enough from 12 0'clock to 6 o'clock position.

Even though i used to check my tyre pressure once in 2 days i started noticed that there were leaks in punctures. So thought that it is unsafe to ride in this condition.

Planned to changed my tyres on one shot. that's why brought above mentioned tyres.

MRF revz low profile tyres suits only for highways and city roads with proper road condition.

If you drove this tyres in j welting road or any you will face tyre failure instant, you will be punctured even if any sharp stone hits the tyre.

So the OEM tyre which comes in Yamaha is very poor.

So i changed my rear tyre with conti go!!!. now every thing is fine good in handling not more than the previous MRF revz.

But i'm experiencing sever back pian ever. front Michelin is doing well.

Cornering and others are good but not as before with MRF's

Please read fully hope it will be a use full for some one.

Hi FZians hope all FZs and FZ16 are doing good.

My bike completed its warranty ie 2 years or 30000 kms which ever is earlier.

My FZS almost covered 32000km so far, Changed quite main parts, Changed my chain sprocket Kit, Spark plug and air filter elementnfront and rear brake shoes and upgraded to SAE 10W-40 Shell Rimula Engine oil

So after many hard and tough off road ride inside and outside tamilnadu, each and every time i have enjoyed the power of my bike. Even in the older post i have mentioned that it was a 2011 model 1st kick start model.

Here is my full review of Yamaha FZS Competition Red.


Still performing well, no gasket leaks in engine head and other areas.

After 22000kms you will experience some noise in engine manifold valve area, in service they will says its a timing belt problem.

Throttle and clutch cable have to change in order to feel the original drive.

Nothing else about engine.


Best in class ever

no comments


City 45-46 under soft riding 35-52kmph, with proper gears and avoiding unwanted clutch applying etc.

Highways 32-36 depend upon the speed 77-98kmph


Front tyre MRF Nylo Zapper -FX 100/80-17, no comments! best in class. Perfect cornering and handling only one puncture so far upto 27820kms

Rear tyre MRF Revz 140/60R17,perfect cornering and handling. after 20000kms it will affect by frequent tyre failure.

It's a good bike. I'm riding this bike for past 3 yrs. Mileage is average. Ride quality & road grip are very good. But long drive with a pillion rider is nightmare. It is very bad in bad roads. Its rear tyre does not last over 15000 km and very puncture prone. It's balance is beautiful. It can not be recommended for daily use or long drive or for use in bad roads

Hey guyz.!! I purchased yamaha fzs and i have so far reached 4300 kms in 5 months, now my bike is in for service.....before letting you know fzs (as far as my bike) i would like to let you know my riding style.

1). I ride at an average speed of 100 in NH 45 for a distance of 36 km.The bike vibrates above speed of 90 and
gives best mileage of 46 at an average of 80 kmph and 42 at 100 kmph in highways.

2). In heavy city traffic my bike gives a mileage of 36 kmpl and gives 38-40 kmpl in normal city riding conditions.

3).It has amazing stability,control,handling when compared to other 150 cc models in the indian market except

R 15 which has got an edge over this bike in terms of stability ,control acheived through its aerodynamics.

4). Acceleration is just cool enough to reach 0-100 in 10-11 sec at perfect gear shifts.

5). The comfort and convenience is equal to cruiser as i travel for minimum 3 hrs a day in my bike....so just

imagine if i dont feel any kind of tiredness unless there is a heavy trekking bag or a backpack over my back..
