2014 Yamaha Fazer in India – 150cc sports tourer

Wednesday, April 2nd, 2014


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.

Wednesday, February 26th, 2014


Three pictures that looks like official studio pictures of 2014 Yamaha FZ150i has leaked. Based on my observation, everything is looking almost perfect to be the real thing. HLYM website still doesn’t show anything yet about this FZ150i. We can see the small LC4V writings on the front mudguard, the accurate position of the FZ150i emblem on the side of the top fairing and the Deltabox sign on the frame. We can also notice the omission of the kick starter which follow the spyshot we have seen earlier.  (more…)

Wednesday, February 19th, 2014



Could it be possible that Indonesia is the only country in the world to ever have the production of the facelifted Kawasaki Ninja RR (or also known as the Ninja KRR-ZX150 in Malaysia)? This bike has been introduce to the world in 2012 for the Indonesian market. While they were enjoying their new ride of the facelifted Ninja RR with slimmer body and new styling, we in Malaysia are waiting for it to come here. Then, as of 2014, we heard that the 2-stroke Ninja KRR-ZX150 is going to be replaced with another bike that is equipped with 4-stroke engine. Based on this information, there will be no more hope for us to see this facelift bike to be available in Malaysia.  (more…)
