Coming from the sport heritage of Yamaha, this XJR1300 looks muscular enough. Equipped with 1,251cc 4-stroke inline-four forward-inclined engine, this bike provides 98hp at 8,000RPM with 108.4Nm of torque at 6,000RPM.

I think the Yamaha Fazer here embodies the sports tourer spirit even though it is only 150cc. The front headlight looks like the YZF-R15 with that sharp styling. Having only half-fairing, this bike makes it easier to be taken to the offroad occasionally. The seat height at 790mm makes it good enough for most of the Indian and Asian riders. The long windshield is the symbol that this bike is ready to be taken for long distance journey.
The engine are carburetted air-cooled 4-stroke SOHC with 2-valve measures at 153cc. Maximum power output is 14PS at 7,500RPM should be enough for the riders to enjoy slow and steady journey. If you want faster riding journey, buy bigger bike la.
The frame is diamond type or also known as the Deltabox as of the FZ150i here in Malaysia. This chassis setup is one of the most critical aspect of chassis development in motorcycle world, as it provides lightweight construction but rigid and strong frame. We can also see the rear suspension is using the monoshock suspension that can provide excellent handling.
Front brake is handled by 2-piston caliper put to the ground with that lovely 5-spoke wheel. Rear brake is managed by drum brake which should be enough to stop the 14PS bike.
