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.
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.
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
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.
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 .
The buying experience of the Yamaha SZ was not bad. The riding experience, however, is not very good. The look is very good, and it needs regular servicing and maintenance before the service period. The main drawback is that the bike will often not start at all, particularly in the mornings. The speed also drops quickly after pulling the accelerator, which results in a lack of smoothness while riding. This can be a major inconvenience.
I have been using this Yamaha SZ for 11 years now, and the buying experience was quite good. The seating is very comfortable for me, given my height. The riding experience is quite good, however, I have noticed that when I use the rear brakes, the rear tire tends to skid a bit. Other than that, the bike is really good.
The engine has had some issues since the date I bought it - the speed gets stuck after 70 km/h and the pickup is good. However, the engine tends to leap around a lot, making it difficult to ride. The maintenance is average and the servicing cost is really high, even though the problems remain after servicing. The disk brakes are not very durable either and they get stuck with the tire quite often.
The self-start is awesome - it starts in one try even after 11 years of usage. The mileage is quite low, at around 40 km/l.
Overall, the bike is good, but the service cost and experience is quite bad.
The buying experience with the Yamaha SZ was good, however the pick up was not as good as expected. The look was good, but the performance was not up to the mark. The servicing was the worst part. I have faced issues with the speedometer and the clutch cable has been a problem since the beginning. There is a vibration sound coming out from the bike and the brake sound is very irritating. Even in high gear, the pick up was not good. Sometimes when a pillion rider is on the bike, there is some sound coming from the back which I have observed.
Yamaha to do more in SZ series then only Yamaha can get the place in market.

Friends, I made this review from my own experience. For me this is a very poor quality product and I will not encourage others for this product. Simply waste of money. Low mileage. Very poor quality of electrical parts, chains, etc. I met with lot of complaints within 6 months of purchase of my bike. Please take better options for your satisfaction
Best Features: Customer services of Yamaha is excellent
Pros: Model and pickup is good
Cons: Electrical parts are of very low quality. Not a quality product. Very poor quality product
After happy riding of 70000kms on Bajaj Kawasaki Wind 125, I wanted to buy little premium, performance but family bike...after a lot of analysis I ended up buying Yamaha SZ-RR V2.0 since not worried about mileage... The bike is really good for city commuting...pick up is really interesting as the torque setting seems to be wide from 1500 to 6000 rpm... equally... Just releasing the clutch, the bike starts moving even without Rev like cars...that is good to see...mileage is average.. 42 kmpl in Chennai city...sound also unique and interesting but little noisy... Gear, clutch are good but braking not sufficient even my old bike was superb....I would consider this bike as a very premium 125 cc since the 150 segment in the market are high figured in paper.. Down side--- paint quality, and other Plastic accessories are very normal...so bike needs to be handled smoothly...I am missing a trip meter which was there in my old bike...compared to my old bike seating is not enough for going with family ??
Best Features: Style and able to move quicker in city traffic
Pros: Pickup, look, pride of yamaha
Cons: Not comfortable with - pillion rider and kids
