Yamaha Launches Special Edition Of FZ-S & Fazer


2013 Yamaha Fazer Special Edition

Every year Yamaha updates the FZ range with new colors. The company has been doing this since the past few years with moderate success. Now it is that time of the year, with the festive season looming over our heads, Yamaha has yet again launched the special edition variants of the FZ-S and the Fazer. Now the special edition really doesn’t bring much to the table but this move from Yamaha seems to tackle the recently launched Honda CB Trigger. The company will run an aggressive marketing campaign surrounding this launch.

The FZ-S and Fazer have been given new graphics on its all new battle green color. Yamaha likes to call this stylish but we like the Midnight edition better. These special edition models will be limited in number although Yamaha has not disclosed the number of units it plans to produce. The special edition Yamaha FZ-S is priced at Rs. 74,385/- and the Yamaha Fazer special edition is priced at Rs. 79,485/- (all prices ex-showroom, Delhi). These come at a slight premium over the regular models.

Both Fazer and FZ-S are powered by the same 153cc single-cylinder engine which produces 14 PS of power and 13.6 Nm of torque coupled to 5-speed gearbox. Yamaha launched the FZ series in 2008. Since then, Yamaha has not made any mechanical changes to the motorcycle. However, the FZ is still one of the best motorcycles in the 150cc segment offering crisp performance, splendid dynamics and Yamaha quality. Enthusiasts expect more from the brand Yamaha and mechanical changes to the FZ can create a new benchmark in the 150cc segment, leaving competitors dumbfounded.

    Hi, Faisal I am in the verge of buying a new bike.My budget is around 80,000 and not more than 85,000. I have shortlisted 3 bikes RTR (160,180), Fzs, Fazer. See daily usage is approx 50 km a day. I am not interested in Pulsar (150,180) as i got mixed reviews that their engines really suck after 1 yr. and the engine of the new generation pulsar are not like the old one. I live in Delhi so it should be easy to handle through traffic. So waiting for u r valuable suggestions. Its not necessary that u should choose from the above 3. U kindly give u r choice of bike apart from this if u have any.

      Vaikunth, if mileage not a concern, get the Fazer.

      I think, HONDA CB TRIGGER or DAZZLER are also good two Wheeler.

      I own the gs150r and also frequently ride my brother’s fz-s. The Fz-S is fun to ride, turns easily, and is light. The gs150r is rock stable, handles decently, and its 6th gear is really good for riding long roads.

      I am 5 feet 7 inches. The riding position of Fz-S is not too aggressive; it is just right. It has slightly rear-set footpegs which is a good thing. But I find the Fz-S a bit too short. The gs150r also has slightly rear-set footpegs, which is good, and it is comfortable. Though Fz-S is lighter by 10 kg, the pickup is not that good. I find the pickup in my Fz-S and Gs150r to be the same.

      Honda unicorn does not have rear-set footpegs. This feet-foward position is not comfortable for long rides. But good engine.

      The apache is also a good bike but slightly aggressive seat position. Very good pickup. If buying the apache, buy the RTR180 only. Do not buy 160.

I’m confused in fz s and fazer (in my city fazer cost is around 93k). I guess my usage will be 50 k.m. per week. My question is which would be perfect for me. And can i face problem on learning in these bikes. And can you tell me the mileage of these bikes coz I’m confused by many different articles in which they say figures like 20, 25, 30, 40, 55 kmpl

    I Own Fz-16 N Let Me tell U that i completely Enjoy my bike it almost 10k km done on it n it also giving me decent avg. of 40-42 km /lt sometime at speeding my bike around 70-80km/hr for couple of km on my daily route
    And Of Other bike pulsar Is The Bike I Seriously Don’t prefer Noy Becoz I Am A Fzian It Due To My Personal Expirence Else U Can Try Ur self N See The diffrence
    Pulsar (200ns ,220) may be fast then fz or other bike but u Should Have Ur Safety Gears Put On As It Speeding Is Not As Confidence As Of Yamaha And Honda Bikes
    There Are Better Option Then Bajaj Honda Cbr n Ktm 200 (Best in That Price ) As Ur Budget Is of 80k I Suggest U For Yamaha Last Choice Is Urs Have A Test Drive N Decide Ur Own

    Hi Faizal,
    I am planning to buy a new bike which should be sporty and also gives good mileage.
    I have shortlisted Honda trigger and FZS, SZRR. Following are the observations after taking drive of Trigger engine is good but the head light and handle bar of Trigger feels like that of of some 110 cc bike and also the plastic finishing doesn’t look complete and quality of switches look very poor in quality. Also bike looks shorter for me as i am 5’10. I felt Honda had seriously over priced this bike and we should compare it with Yamaha SZRR but not with FZS. In the long run will the mileage of FZs falls below 40 (after 2 yrs)?
    Please suggest whether i could go with FZS or SZ-RR as budget is not a concern for me.
    Thanks in advance.

    now i want to own a new bike… but i am lil bit confused ..which is the best worth to my money.
    Pulser 180 – Yamaha Fz- TVS RTR 180.

    although i am thinking of buying Tvs Apache as i wanna own a bike between 80k- 83k. And yamaha’s bike is only 150 cc in that price tag..while in that same price tag i can have a 180 cc bike..from TVS.

    i will use the bike in city only..and my daily run will be around 30-40kms.

    Karizma R will cost you Rs. 93k and Fazer special edition will cost you around Rs. 90k.

      @Kedar: Thanks for the suggestion. One thing i doubt now a days about Karizma is the quality Hero producing. My friend bought a Karizma R in January but it started a rattling sound since October. That sound pulls out all the fun in driving. But I love riding this bike. It brings us home effortlessly even after travelling 30-40Kms.

    One common problem i found people complaining is the discomfort of the pillion rider. This is the only factor which is blocking my decision.
    Is it so bad? Also can i get a ladies foot rest for FZ models? And how comfortable will it be for ladies while sitting one sided in the pillion of FZ?

    Hi, planning to buy a bike n my heart is saying to get the fz-s battle green. this will be my 1st bike and i still need to learn riding properly. can you pls tell me whether fz-s battle green will be a decent choice? my height is arnd 5.5 so fz-s seems very comfortable. i dnt knw the reason bt most of my frnds and family members are saying to go for honda bike..unicorn to be precise but m nt interested.

    Pls suggest me what shld i do? what milegae can i expect frm fz-s and what can be the pros n cons of the bike after 2 yrs as i also gt some review k after couple of yrs it sucks lots of your money in maintenance.

    Hi Faisal,

    Going through all your comments.
    I am planning to buy a good bike. I really like the FZ – s models. Read a lot about them in the internet.
    One common problem i found people complaining is the discomfort of the pillion rider. This is the only factor which is blocking my decision.
    Is it so bad? Also can i get a ladies foot rest for FZ models? And how comfortable will it be for ladies while sitting one sided in the pillion of FZ?

    Waiting for your kind reply..

    • Faisal Khan February 10, 2014, 11:03 am

      Why not look at the CB Trigger? Better for a pillion.

  • simle February 10, 2014, 11:53 am
