Yamaha SZ-RR V1 Review

21 Dec, 2021 05:09 PM

Quick Review by Maxabout Team

Yamaha SZ-RR is a commuter type bike from Yamaha and the most expensive bike in SZ series. The exterior of this bike is a fine blend of style and muscular looks with its black visor, body colored cowl, stylish headlight, rear view mirrors, clear lens indicators, dual colors finishing, trendy tank shrouds with the name of the bike, silver front fender, bluish side covers, black colored five spoke 17-inch alloy wheels, muffler and engine has heat protector, wide tyre at back, dual tail lights and comfortable seats. It has dual circular pods in its instrument console and between these two; there are other indicators and an analogue fuel gauge. The right side has a tachometer and the left side shares analogue speedometer and odometer.

The bike has a powerful 153cc Air-cooled, 4-stroke, SOHC, single cylinder, 2-valve petrol engine which gives a maximum power of 12 bhp at 7500 rpm and a maximum torque of 12.8 Nm at 4500 rpm and has a five speed manual gearbox.

The bike has a gear shifting pattern of first gear down and remaining four gears up. It reaches 0-60kmph mark in just 6 seconds and has the top speed of 105kmph. But this bike lacks in power and makes vibrations and noise after 7000 rpm. It gives a mileage of around 55 kmpl in the cities and 65 kmpl on the highways. It has a raised handle bar which gives a nice and firm grip with good support and makes the steering easy. It has a wide and comfy rear seat and is greatly spacious even with a pillion rider. Its nicely placed foot-pegs and fuel tank gives a nice, sporty and comfortable posture to the body. There is a small space under its seat for little storage.

It also has some safety features which are saree guard, pass light and strong headlight. It has 58mm of cylinder bore and 57.9mm of stoke and a chain driven type of drive system. This bike is an electric start as well as kick-start with a CDI ignition. It has a fuel tank capacity of 14 litres. Yamaha SZ-RR has disk brakes at front and drum brakes at rear. The suspension of this bike is lashed with telescopic hydraulics at front and single coil spring hydraulic shock absorbers at rear. It has wet, multiple-disk type clutch.

The bike has the ability to stay grounded on high speeds due to its kerb weight of 133kgs and wheelbase of 1320mm. It has a ground clearance of 165mm and saddle height of 802mm. There is also a passenger footrest for rear passenger's comfort. The bike has a length of 2050mm, width of 730mm and a height of 1100mm as its dimension. Yamaha SZ-RR has three shades which are Quality Blue, Quality Black and Quality Red. With the launch of SZ-RR, the SZ is now available in four variants which are Yamaha SZ, Yamaha SZ-X, Yamaha SZ-R and Yamaha SZ-S. Overall, this bike is a good combination of style, price and engine performance but is still struggling in the field of high maintenance and resale value of this bike.

Bad buying experience with my Yamaha SZ

Divya Gupta | One year ago
helpful 0

I had a bad buying experience with my Yamaha SZ. I ordered a certain color, but did not receive it and had to be forgiven by the dealer. The riding experience on the SZ R was ok on straight roads, but even worse on hilly roads. The initial pickup was good, but after that it felt like riding an old bull cart. Once we reached top gear 5th, it felt like a panther. In India, we cannot ride for more than 15 minutes in top gear unless we are travelling on a national highway. The looks of the bike were average, but the performance was good and the silencer had a great sound. 

The mileage was terrible - 50 to drop off 25 kmpl in one year. The service from Yamaha was ok, but the parts were expensive and we had to argue a lot to get the warranty of one year. The pros of the bike were the low price, sporty look, and light weight. The cons were very bad mileage, less power, and higher maintenance.

Say NO to Yamaha SZ

Charu Garg | One year ago

When I bought my new Yamaha SZ, I was initially happy with my purchase. Initially, the ride quality was good and I had no problems. However, after a few thousand kilometers, I started to experience some issues with the engine. It became increasingly noisy, and I had to change the carburetor at 10000 km. Even after getting the service done on time, the service center technician was unable to identify the problems. The mechanics were inexperienced and could not provide a proper diagnosis. This was not the experience I expected from a Yamaha product. I will never buy a Yamaha again.

Doesn't have a kick start and the headlight is not powerful

Gazal Singla | One year ago

I bought the Yamaha SZ-R in December 2011 and I was very pleased with its sporty look. I was especially impressed with the comfort of the ride and the overall riding experience is quite remarkable. The bike's performance is good and I have taken many long rides since purchasing it. I have gone from Kalyan to Ratnagiri (about 800 kms), Kalyan to Mahabaleshwar (about 700 kms), and Kalyan to Nashik-Shirdi (about 700 kms) and I have driven all of these distances without any problems. My previous bike caused me back pain, so I have found the SZ-R to be a great relief in that respect. My daily travel is about 20 kilometers and I'm getting an average mileage of 40-45 kilometers in the city and 45-50 kilometers for long-distance rides.

The only downsides of the bike is that it doesn't have a kick start and the headlight is not as powerful as I would like. The battery also got damaged after 18 months, but I replaced it with an Exide battery and it has worked well since then. After 5 years, the bike has started to give some problems, with both the front and rear suspension getting damaged and the tyres losing their shape and grip. I changed them with Ceat tyres and since then there have been no punctures. Compared to other bikes of the same period, I think my Yamaha SZ-R

An average bike

Prem Shankar Baghel | One year ago

Riding is fine as far as you do not go beyond 80kmph. The bike is able to reach 115kmph without a pillion crouched down. But at that point you will feel how hard the bike struggles to maintain the speed. Untill 80 kmph the bike is able to hold speeds for long commutes. You will feel that the bike lacks a 6th gear on the highway. I haven't tested the mileage but i believe it returns about 45-50 kmpl.

The downside is that there is no kill-switch. It even lacks a pass light.

I have faced the issue of the speedometer cable getting ripped every 500 km I drove. Replacing it is a waste of time and you won't be able to keep the correct odometer reading.

Not a wise decision to purchase the Yamaha SZ

Deepak Kumar | One year ago

After reading this review, it is clear that the Yamaha SZ is not a good buy. The user has experienced several issues with the bike in the two years that they have owned it, including having to replace the meter wire, clutch cable, and accelerator cable multiple times. The user has also reported that the mileage is very low and that the chain sprocket is giving them problems. Additionally, they have indicated that the exchange amount offered is too low. Overall, based on this review, it is not a wise decision to purchase the Yamaha SZ .

One thing I don't like from this bike is its old school design (fairings) compared to pulsar fairings or even gixxer, not very modern and has a big head cowl not dimensional to the body. This bike don't have too much power and it can't even reach at 116 - 120 kmph and take note it has a 150cc engine, much better to buy 125cc instead. This bike has no match on the top speed of the Pulsar 135LS even Pulsar has smaller displacement, and no match on the mileage too, even the design, still no match for the sportier look of the Pulsar. Damn, Yamaha must have something to do with this (SZ's segment)...

Indeed the bike goes smooth in traffic condition with very less throttle at high gears but once you
cross the 65KMPH mark & u start feeling the brunt. Particularly at a speed of say 70-80 if you cut the throttle, the speed starts dropping at a significant rate. Almost as if you braked.

Perhaps a 6th gear targeting maximum power at higher speeds (say beyond 60) would have been sufficient. As said before the low speed performance is impressive & the lag is only with higher speeds.

Also the braking system is a real turnoff.

So all in all , this machine is just good for small indian cities with hardly any scope of shooting beyond 60 KMpH.

Awesome experience through out the First 60+kms Ride (Bypass, City Traffic, Broken Road and Water logged road). A complete Test for Handling, Braking and Suspensions. But my SZ RR (blue) get the A++ rank in the Test.
Looks is awesome. even Girls are staring from Auto Rikshaws and Taxi. Good acceleration and stability. But I faced difficulty changing the Gear. May be every cons will be gone after 1st Servicing.
