Here we take on the 2018 Yamaha FZ-S FI. It was one of the earliest naked street bikes and still maintains it superb riding quality. Though it misses out on some features but gets an important Fuel injection system. The bike is priced starting from Rs 83,042 (ex-showroom). Read ahead to know more about the bike.
Yamaha R1 is one of the fastest bikes in the world. Quick acceleration is one of the unique and attractive features that Yamaha bikes possess. If you see, most of their bikes are track-ready bikes. In its India’s lineup, we take one of their popular bikes, the 2018 Yamaha FZ-S FI. It was one of the earliest naked bikes to enter the Indian market and immediately grabbed everyone’s attention. The latest generation features a fully-digital speedometer, front and rear disc brake, Fuel Injection System and better Split Anti-Skid seats. While it misses out on ABS, still the features are pretty decent for its segment. Yamaha bikes are often overpriced according to its segment, but they are better to ride than most of their rivals. The bike comes in only 1 colour scheme – Armada Blue. The naked bike competes with Apache RTR 1604V, Hornet 160R, Gixxer and Pulsar NS160.

Speaking on the launch in January, Mr. Roy Kurian, Senior Vice President, Sales and Marketing, Yamaha Motor India Sales Pvt. Ltd. said, “The legacy of Yamaha’s FZ series in India is all about the inheritance of a unique motorcycling passion. Immensely popular with Indian bikers all the way through almost 10 years from the day it was launched in India, and winning over a million hearts, it was crowned to become the ‘lord of the streets’ by the collective culture of the country’s motorcycling. While its best seller features like build and appearance, superior engine technology, fuel mileage and suspension are retained, the new additions will excite the present and new customers.”
The latest version of the FZ-S FI has gone on sale at an ex-showroom price of Rs 83,042. Compared to the earlier model, the new version is roughly Rs 1,000 costlier. However, the slight price premium is justified through the special paint job.

The bike follows FZ16’s ‘Triple Muscular Concept’, portraying a macho image of the bike. One of the earliest naked street bikes, it gets a lot of muscle lines with decals over the body. Other than the special paint scheme, the bike continues to offer a really butch styling. The front fascia makes the bike look meaner and leaner in our opinion. It gets a single seat arrangement, which is common in this segment. The instrument cluster gets a digital treatment as well and from the looks of it, seems like a pretty neat unit too. It also gets clear lens indicators. Further, the fact that this bike comes with black-painted engine goes on to give the motorcycle an all-black finish. The FZ series of bikes has already garnered a fan following owing to its muscular looks and strong street presence.
The 2018 Yamaha FZ-S FI gets a rear disc brake. But there is no other change in the specifications. It continues to get its juice from a 149 cc, single-cylinder, fuel-injected engine that comes mated to a 5-speed manual Transmission. The engine produces a maximum power of 13 bhp @ 8,000 rpm and a peak torque of 12.80 Nm @ 6,000 rpm. The engine is known for delivering a good mix of performance, mileage, and refinement. It gets a fuel capacity of 12 Litres.

As there are no changes in the specifications of the motorcycle, even the mileage remains the same. The FZ-S FI can deliver a maximum mileage of 50 KMPL. IN most conditions, the bike can offer an average mileage of roughly 45 KMPL. The overall riding range of the bike is around 600 Kms in a full fuel tank.
The sub 160 CC segment is full of naked street bikes. Currently, it competes with Honda CB Hornet 160R, Apache RTR 1604V, Suzuki Gixxer and Pulsar NS160. However, some of these bikes offer more features than the Yamaha bike and also are more fuel efficient. However, Yamaha has its own set of followers who love the other members like the R3, YZF R15 and more.
