India Yamaha Motor has today launched a new variant of its hugely successful 150cc FZ-16 motorcycle, Yamaha Fazer.
While the technical specifications of the new Yamaha Fazer remain unchanged and are the same as that of its sibling, Yamaha FZ16 and FZS, looks have definitely been improved with the introduction of the new half fairing, which is quite similar to the one found on Yamaha’s 1000cc sports tourer, Yamaha FZ1 Fazer.
Speaking at the launch of Yamaha FZ16 Fazer, Mr. Yukimine Tsuji, CEO & Managing Director, India Yamaha Motor Pvt. Ltd. said, “It gives us great pride to say that we have reached yet another milestone in the history of India Yamaha Motor as we inaugurate the new plant and launch Fazer.

Today the investment comes alive in the form of this internationally bench marked modern manufacturing facility. New Fazer is the latest addition in our portfolio of technologically superior bikes including YZF-R15, FZ16 and FZ-S” which exhibit Yamaha’s global ingredients – Performance, Innovation & Design and are the Best Products currently in the market to fulfill the aspirations of Indian biking enthusiasts.”
