2. Exclusive Looks

The Yamaha FZ-X features a neo-retro design language with a naked scrambler look which makes it an extremely unique and different bike in the 150 cc segment. The bike does have a strong road presence and the round headlamps complement the overall character of the bike.

3. Quality and Fit and Finish Levels

The fit and finish levels of the Yamaha FZ-X are top-notch and so is the quality of the various parts and components. The wires and the cables are well secured and the panels too are well put together.

4. Comfortable Ride Experience

The overall suspension setup makes the Yamaha FZ-X an extremely comfortable bike. The suspension takes care of bad roads and potholes while the seat too is comfortable and wide enough to provide enough support for the grown-up adults. The seating position too is upright, hence improving the comfort levels even more.

5. Handling and Grip

Despite having a comfortable suspension, the Yamaha FZ-X also gets sorted dynamics and boasts impressive handling. The wide dual-purpose tyres offer good grip levels and the riding enthusiasts will definitely love to push this bike in the corners.


1. Underpowered

The Yamaha FZ-X is powered by a 150 cc motor which does not boast very high power and torque output. When compared to the rivals, the outright performance and acceleration offered by the Yahama FZ-X is not very impressive and the bike does feel a little underpowered. However, you will not complain about the performance while using the bike in urban traffic.

2. Cost Cutting

Despite costing INR 1.17 lakh (ex-showroom), the Yahama FZ-X feels built on a budget and the brand has cut corners in many places to save some extra pennies. To start with, a hinged fuel filler cap is missing and so is a proper glass covering for the front headlights.

3. Looks

While I personally like the looks of the Yamaha FZ-X, there are still many others who are not appreciating the overall design language of the bike. The bike does look a little out of proportions from a few angles but in all, the Yamaha FZ-X remains a handsome-looking bike with sorted looks and a great engine.
