The Yamaha dealer in my city informed me that the company is soon going to launch Yamaha FZ-15 150cc in India within a few months.

The looks of the bike can be summed up in one word as ‘muscular’. While the YZF R15 poses a stylish and sporty outlook, FZ15 presents itself like a hunk. Like the R15, it has a mono suspension and a liquid cooled engine.

Yamaha is trying to grab a bigger market share by diluting the indian auto mobile market with too many models. In my opinion, there is nothing very special in this bike. This is just a revamped model of FZ1.

Just like the 1000cc YZF R1 was fitted with a 150cc engine and launched as YZF R15, the 1000cc version of the FZ1 is being launched as a 150cc model. The problem with this kind of marketing strategy is that the original bike loses its value and no one would buy the higher end model even if they want to.

I am waiting to test drive the bike and post a review as soon as it gets launched. Hopefully the Indian biking industry is booming and the customers are more demanding than ever. We can expect a lot of new bike models to be launched in 2009. Hero Honda has also promised to launch 13 new models within end of the next year!

  7. hi there. this goes for those making bad comments about this bike you are forgetting something, the bike we are talking about is a 150cc one. you cannot compare such a bike with the ones you ride when racing this one was created to reach short distances while driving in the city you murons. furthermore yamaha does not have to please anybody they have already made their way to the top.

  8. guyz we got a new type of YZF R15 coming soon. and in the article i heard the FZ 1000 loses its value because yamaha is releasing them with 150cc engine. but comparing the mighty R1 and the YZF R15, we can easily say, that looks wise the mighty R1 always wins, i mean look at R1s sporty headlights and sporty engine fairing , the R15s headlights and engine fairing dont even match up

  9. guyz check it out, the specs looks similar to the apache rtr 180( torque and power), so now we have a competitor to indian bikes and to the race machine apache
