Adventure bikes such as the Yamaha FZ-X 150 are becoming more and more popular. A few years ago, adventure tourers or adventure bikes were very rare. However, the years are proving otherwise. More and more people are seeing the benefits of getting a bike that can both tear the trail and rule the roads. Bikes such as the BMW R 1250 GS and Royal Enfield Himalayan are two of the most embraced motorcycles in the World. And how could Yamaha stay out of the challenge? Hence, they are introducing the Yamaha FZ-X 150, the entry-level adventure tourer.
Yamaha is one of the top-tier motorcycle brands in the world. They have been one of the ruling class manufacturers for a long time now. The Yamaha R and the Yamaha MT series are two of the most appreciated and most popular motorcycle series in the world. One of the most popular motorcycles in Bangladesh and India is the Yamaha R15 V3. Over the years, Yamaha has become a name of trust and reliability.
One of key features of the Yamaha FZ-X 150 is the adventure physique. This bike comes with a half fairing which gives it the adventure touring vibe. This bike is also expected to come with a proper belly pan, which can give your bike’s engine the proper protection when going above the terrain. The bike also comes with an extended windshield to help prevent windblast to the rider. It also is expected to have tail carriers that can help with carrying baggage.
The Yamaha FZ-X 150 is expected to have a full LED light setup. The headlight is expected to be LED, which will help riders in the night. The taillight and indicators are also expected to be LED, which will make the bike more visible from a distance. The bike might get LED projection headlights like the MT series or dual LED lights like the Fazer series.
The Yamaha FZ-X 150 is expected to come in three colors:
All three variants are expected to be of similar decals.
The Yamaha FZ-X 150 is also expected to get a fully digital instrument cluster with proper information. The instrument cluster is expected to have a speedometer, gear position indicator, navigation (rumor), engine information, and other necessary indicators.
The Yamaha FZ-X 150 might have a very assistive height. The seat height of the bike is expected to be around 800mm, which will be suitable for riders above the height of 5’5”. The ground clearance of the bike will be suitable for it to get over tall terrains. The bike is also expected to have a fuel capacity of about 14liters, which will be enough for the long ride out of town and the sudden rides through trails.
The length, width, and height of the Yamaha FZ-X 150 are expected to be 2020mm, 785mm, and 1115mm respectively. As most ADV bikes are a bit on the heavier side, this bike can also be expected to be on the heavier side. The wheelbase of the bike is going to be about 1330mm, which is quite common for Yamaha’s of this capacity.
Engine and Transmission:
The Yamaha FZ-X 150 is set up with a DOHC, 4-stroke, single-cylinder, and 149cc engine. The Terra is liquid-cooled, and fuel injected. The engine gives out around 12BHP of power at 8000RPM, and around 12Nm of torque at 6500RPM. The power is extremely high and will be helpful on the highway, the torque will also be very helpful to cut through the trails. The bike is expected to have a mileage of around 40kmpl.
The Yamaha FZ-X 150 comes with a wet multi-plate clutch system. The bike has a 5-speed gearbox. The bike is expected to have a top speed of around 110kmph.
Brakes, Suspensions, and Wheels:
The Yamaha FZ-X 150 might have no ABS or CBS. The rear and the front are both disc brakes. The front disc is expected to be radially mounted with dual calipers. The front brakes are expected to perform well. The rear brake is a basic disc brake. The rear brake is also expected to perform quite well.
The Yamaha FZ-X 150 has front telescopic forks as front suspension. The rear has a mono shock-absorbing suspension. This means that the bike will be highly stable during rides and also during cornering. The rear seat is very wide and long, which allows pillions to sit easily and comfortably for long hours. The front suspension provides quite good support on the trail and the highways.
The Yamaha FZ-X 150 might get spoke wheels. The front and rear wheels might have 100/90 and 140/80 tires respectively. The tires provided might be semi off-road treads, which means the bike will perform well on both on-road and off-road. However, it may be a jack of all trades, it will also be the king of none. This means it won’t perform like a road racing bike on the road, nor will it perform like a dirt bike on the trails.
The Yamaha FZ-X 150 was made for the tourer. A tourer who wishes to use a bike to ride up the hills and beyond. This bike will also fascinate youngsters as this bike has a very well-designed look with modern aesthetic decals. However, it is not suggested to ride this bike as a beginner.
Weirdly, the Yamaha FZ-X 150 has only 2 competitors, but the competitors are strong enough to question the buyer’s decisions.
Aprilia Terra 150.
Lifan KPT 160.
Yamaha has continued to give the public every kind of bike they want. But over the years, Yamaha was still lacking in the adventure segment for people who are looking for low-capacity bikes. However, with the introduction of the Yamaha FZ-X 150, Yamaha will fill that gap and will be able to provide the people with what they need.
