The Aprilia RS125 b da mutts. Sharpest, best handling bike of any type. Shit loads of power to weight ratio, fantastic brakes. Some of the most worn out knee sliders we see here are from guys who know how to ride their RS125 properly. Aggressive, decisive, and with plenty of character to express its dynamic, lightweight nature in a personal, unique style that typifies Italian passion for motorbike racing.
We saw the FZ 16 for the first time at the Auto Expo in January 2008. The price of the FZ16 is lower than most expected – that might give it a jump start.
Official information from the company uses the words ‘Macho Street Fighter’ in the press release, that seems to be a description of the motorcycle, not its name. FZ 16 is all we can find on the website of yamaha India.
The Yamaha FZ 16 motorcycle boasts of a 153 cc air-cooled, four-stroke, single-cylinder high torque engine, single-axis balancer and mono-cross suspension. Other feaures that come with bike that sports street-fighter looks include 5-spoke die-cast alloy wheels, brakes of 267mm single cross-drilled ventilated rotor with 2-pot calipers and 130 mm drum and a fuel tank with a 13-litres capacity.

According to company top brass, FZ 16 has all in it to provide Indian bike enthusiasts with both a rough and brutish expression as well as a certain subtlety. Expected to be a bike that could be picked up by all bike enthusiasts who love the thrills of biking, the FZ 16 is being offered by the company in in three hues, Lava Red, Midnight Black and Flaming Orange.
As far as macho looks go, the Yamaha FZ 16 motorcycle beats all other motorcycles hands down. The design is that muscular, in some ways the polar opposite of that other handsome motorcycle from Yamaha, the YZF R15.
Yamaha India hopes to sell at least five lakh FZ 16s in year 2009, which going by the looks and features may not be a tough task. Reviewers of the bike have said that the street fighter looks make Yamaha FZ-16 the best looking naked bike in its class Further, the macho tank, aggressive front heavy stance and the rear view make the FZ-16 a must buy in its category
