Added in: Comparisons

Yamaha-FZ-FZ-S-V2-Launch (8)

After staying dormant for years in the Indian motorcycle market, Yamaha introduced its ground breaking models, FZ, FZS and R15 in 2008 which featured more sporty and muscular styling than any other motorcycle in the 150cc category at that time. The Japanese motorcycle manufacturer then upgraded the R15 with the introduction of version 2. The FZ series, over the years, just received cosmetic changes. But earlier this year, Yamaha introduced the second version of its 150cc sporty commuter motorcycle, the FZS Fi. The new FZ series receives fuel injection as against the carburettor unit in the previous model.

Suzuki Gixxer and Let's

The FZ series enjoys a monopoly in terms of styling in the 150cc segment. But another Japanese manufacturer is eyeing the segment which FZ series has ruled for over six years. Suzuki is all set to sell its new 150cc offering, the Gixxer 155 which, in many aspects, is similar to the FZS. So we compare the two motorcycles on paper and here is what the list looks like:

    Suzuki Gixxer not only better than Yamaha Fz Fi v 2.0 but also it’s technology and Look better than Yamaha R15.

  • A Banerjee says:

    I have pretty bad experience with my pulsar (200-2007 model) regarding ride quality, rider & pillion comfort as well as it is pretty high in maintenance since 2010.

    Now I have shortlisted two bikes 1) Yamaha FZS V2 (On Road Kolkata : 96369) and 2) Suzuki Gixxer (On Road Kolkata : 88600)

    Now I have three queries

    1) Which bike is more comfortable (city road with lot of uneven surface and pot holes) for both Pillion and rider?

    2) Can you provide exact city mileage (lower limit to upper limit) of these two bikes?

    3) Which have lower maintenance cost in terms of parts cost & quality?

  • vicky says:

    gixxer has very good pick up. it has long gears. means you can take the bike in third gear to 80kmph.

  • The Gixxer has an advantage in terms of performance. If you want to go solely for looks, decide what pleases your eyes more yourself
