Yamaha SZ-R in India – another 150cc naked bike



The riders in India gets another choice of 150cc bikes from Yamaha other than the YZF-R15 and FZ-16. It is Yamaha SZ-R that has been added to the line of choice and this should be a very happy moment for riders in India like us. This is definitely have some changes than the R15 and FZ16. We can see there are now double shock use for the rear suspension and missing liquid radiator that gives us a clue that this bike is air-cooled. The performance of this bike is on par with the Yamaha 135LC at 12.1ps/7500RPM which can be noticed by a more affordable version of of the liquid version 150cc engine used in the R15. This is a welcome addition since modders can easily mod their bike with bigger cylinder without messing with the piping of the liquid-cooled engine. SZ-R could be a great hit if the price is right.
