After pounding enemies with its fighter aircraft YZF R15, Yamaha will showcase its muscle power with the launch of FZ-16 today. The meaty and musucular FZ-16 is all set to draw battle lines with pulsars, apache and Hunk. Inspired from the iconic FZ-1 this new FZ-16 with in-your -face styling is sure to lure even the R15 lovers. The 12-litre fuel tank with integrated shrouds and bulbous exhaust is eye-catching that even a BMW rider won’t miss. Also the absence of cruiser bike (other than the Bullet’s) might also bring Yamaha first mover advantage.yamaha fz 16 150

The visible 153cc, 2 valve, SOHC (Single Overhead Camshaft Engine) churns out 14PS of maximum power at 7500rpm. FZ-16 respires through a BS26 carburetor which operates through negative preesure. Peak torque of 13.6Nm is developed at 6000rpm. The 5 speed transmission of FZ-16 is a return type.

The massive dimensions adds character to the bike. FZ-16 lengths 1975mm, its width is 770mm and it height 1045mm. Though it looks massive, FZ-16 weighs just 126kg, gasps…parking and running at low speed won’t be an issue. The ground clearance of the FZ-16 is 160mm. The most important wheelbase parameter stood at 1335mm.

Built on a diamond frame, this new FZ-16 runs on tubeless tyres both at the front and the rear. At the fore it gets 100/60 -17 tyre and at the rear FZ-16 features fattest 140/60 -R17 tyre. You are reading it correctly, the rear tyre is a radial one. 267mm front disc brake and drum brake at the rear is to control this animal. The 41mm diameter hydraulic forks at the fore and mono-suspension at the rear will ensure stress-free cruising even during longer rides. We can expect better damping characteristics from FZ-16 as the front fork travel generous 130mm and the rear mono-cross suspension provides 120mm of wheel travel. Yamaha FZ-16 will be available in three colours – Lava Red, Midnight Black and Flaming Orange.

Poem in hindi for great yamaha and yamaha family and all of yamaha lovers. For R15 , FZ 160 1 . Wo thi kal ki baat . Ho chuki hai jo purani. Aao kare suruat nai. Hai bhrosemand purana sathi wahi . Yamaha ne thani hai . Nai dosto ke saath hai aye. R 15 , FZ 160 se koi karega kya muqabla . Oro ne pehle hi sikast hai mani . Yamaha ne hai mana . Jurorat hai nai prayaso ki . Aaj garv hai , mujhe . Kyu pasand hai Yamaha mujhe . Pehle kabhi na mili , kisi aur or mai aise . Dekhne ko khubsurati . Socha na tha kabhi kisi ne . Yo Yamaha ne bdal di . Bike bazar ki kaya . 2. Yamaha Yamaha Yamaha. Dekho na tujhe . Kaise aaye chen mujhe . Lajwaab ho tum itni . Kehne ko sabd mere pass nahi. Banane walo ne tujhe kya khob banya racha . Tere jaisa koi aur na duja . In lambi sadko ka taj ho tum . Shakti santulan aur khobsurti .… Hai behphana tujme samai . Ogte surya ka noor ho tum . Yamaha in dilo ki chaht ho tum . Two wheeler jagat ki shaan ho tum . Yamaha sabse aage ,sabse tej ho tum Hai her dil tujh pe fida . Yamaha kabol karo salam mera .. For john Abraham and yamaha 3. Hai Yamaha bike nirali . Sabse alag pehchan wali . Sabse sunder dikhne wali . Sabke dilo ko chone wali . Shakti aur santolan wali . Sabke man ko bhane wali . Her aakhno me basne wali . Kache, pake ratile , rasto ko paar karne wali . Yamaha ka hai percham faila . Her juban per naam iska . John , john Abraham ne hai mana . Yamaha ka hai apna rutba . John ki jaan – Yamaha . Tabhi to john kehta hai – yes Yamaha For great yamaha 4. maine Yamaha ko Jab- jab dekha Dhop me isko Her bar chamkte dekha Jab- jab Yamaha akar rukti hai Tab-tab logo ki bhid ikothi hote dekha Maine jab- jab dekha Yamaha ko aage (badte) niklte dekha Jab-jab dekha ise Surksha ke liye bante dekha Jab- jab dekha ise Kache, pake ratile , rasto ko paar karte dekha Lajwab , bepanah , shakti ko dekha Suna , dekha logo ki jubani wah Yamaha Maine isko samay –samay per Nai roop nai power me dekha Iski behpanah gungise ko dekha Samay ke saath isko viksit hote dekh raha hoon Ate: her baar maine ise Sabse aage badte dekh raha hoon For Libero G5, Alba, YBR 106 cc bikes 5.
