The FZ-16 is a spectator and it instantly pulls care. Itís impossible to lose focus when youíre appearing at the novel Yamaha Ė it is both shapely and eye-catching. The Indian FZ borrows plan cues from its stunning appearing big brother, the FZ-1, and is equally dazzling to seem at. Ignorable body cladding is the rule on the FZ-16, with its engine and cycle parts gallantly remarkable like necessary elements of the bikeís normal style. Planned to display minimum gaps and undermentioned a solid theme, the FZ-16 has been sculpted by old Yamaha partners, GK Dynamics of Japan.
The novel bike applies lovely slim-spoke alloy rims in black and the similar color scheme for its engine, swing arm and silencer. Vast segment tyres append to its charm, when a broad, conical front headlight with a sharp beam and small city light stare forward from under the FZís diminutive LCD instrument bay. The devices Ė including a rev counter, speedometer and fuel gauge Ė offer everything in a sporty-appearing digital arrangement.
The novel FZ-16 deploys a city-friendly, broad and to some extent, a low-set handlebar, and applies grips with great feel, marvelous levers, good mirrors and plenty to switchgear. A usable engine-kill shift is part of the package, like is a handlebar-mounted choke lever with the left.
Thereís a enormous and splendidly sculpted model resin fuel tank as generally detected on super bikes, a brushed complete metal fuel-filler that sadly, lacks a pivot and comfortable knee recesses that absolutely tuck away a riderís thighs. The tank is divided by a bold secondary color stripe down its centre, when the actual 12-liter fuel-storage bay sits located only underneath, intentionally closer to the bikeís mid of gravity. The FZ-16 arrives with a fashionable engine cowl, built with vents to direct and scoop air-flow straight to the engine and spark plug.
Other attractive details consist metal footrests for both rider and pillion; an uncovered O-ring sealed drive-chain, nattily executed rip grab-bar and a clever back tyre huger. Seem closely and youíll watch that the novel Yamaha applies a compact sheared silencer which routes itself mid ship, underneath the bikeís swing arm and frame, in the segment of its rear tyre huger. The FZ-16ís flanks and tail are elegant, when its smart tail light is housed within the back mudguard.
