A match between the Austrian Orange and the Japanese Blue team was never on the cards. But with KTM launching the surprise wildcard Duke 250, the entire notion has changed.

It all started when Yamaha India launched the naked version of their quarter-litre Fazer motorcycle last month. Doing so, they have officially entered the segment of quarter-litres in India, surpassing the Yamaha R15.

Then came a surprise from KTM when they launched the Duke 250. Another naked that sits between the 200 and the mighty 390 Duke. Although KTM had once rubbished news about the brand planning to get the Duke 250 to India, this launch has been a wild card. Meant only for Indonesia and Thailand, the 250 makes a scene on Indian roads too.

This, folks, gives us the official rivalry of the segment that starts to take the business seriously. Although both the bikes are made for different purposes, they run similar capacity engines, thereby pitting them against each other in a bitter rivalry that can take the other down not to be able to rise again. Read below and catch the action.

The segment of 150cc motorcycles has been completely revived after a very long time, as we can see a prominent presence of almost all the major players of Indian two wheeler motoring in this category of motorcycles. From a segment which was earlier, in initial stages, was believed to have a very niche audience which values performance more over the commonly perceived notions of low maintenance and high fuel economy, the 150cc segment has now spawned into a number of categories within itself. However, the most of the volumes of this segment come out of premium 150cc commuter streetfighters, which are perfectly well spaced between the entry level 150cc commuters as well as 150cc sports tourers and super sports.

Speaking of this segment in particular, it all started when Yamaha launched the very macho looking and attractive FZ-16 back in 2008, which, at the time of its launch, became an instant success, for the motorcycle brought some international levels of design traits, build quality and features, some things which made it look like a scaled-down version of the liter class roadster from Yamaha, the FZ1.

Today, this segment has become more of a single player territory, as almost all the biggies of this industry now have a presence. However, speaking of the favourites, the trio of Japanese makes – Honda, Yamaha and Suzuki – are ruling the roosts with their respective offerings, the CB Hornet 160 R, FZ-S FI Version 2.0 and Gixxer. With their brawny styling, typical Japanese build quality and refinement and adequate performance, all these three motorcycles are the most prominent and one of the best-selling motorcycles for their respective parent manufacturers.

Seeing the success of the Japanese motorcycles, how can Bajaj, the pioneer of the 150cc segment, can be left behind? After having a glorious journey of the very popular Pulsar brand, the manufacturer is all set to unleash its offering in the premium 150cc streetfighter category with the all-new Pulsar NS 150. A lesser powerful and lesser equipped version of the Pulsar NS 200, the Pulsar NS 150 will be positioned above the Pulsar 150 to take on the competition from Japanese rivals.

Now which one emerges to be a winner out of this tough battle? Let’s find out:-

Launched in 2008, Yamaha’s FZ series of motorcycles had created a new meaning to the streetfighter nemesis. The DNA embedded had street characteristics that made the FZ the number one in the segment pretty fast. Then, Yamaha had launched Fazer In the year 2008 under the FZ series, the Japanese Blue’s wonderful semi-faired sports tourers. It provided a perfect balance between the aggressive of Yamaha’s true-blue super sports and the very practical naked roadsters termed under the brand ‘FZ’.

Recently, Yamaha added a new boy to the FZ lineup, the FZ25. This is their official entry to the quarter-litre naked motorcycle segment in the country. Like history repeating itself, we believe Yamaha will launch another semi-faired tourer and call it the Fazer 250.

This is Japanese’s answer to the TVS Apache RTR 200 4V, the KTM Duke 200 and the Pulsar 200 range of motorcycles and sits neatly in between its siblings, the YZF-R15 and the YZF R3.

Launched in 2008, Yamaha’s FZ series of motorcycles had created a new meaning to the streetfighter nemesis. The DNA embedded had street characteristics that made the FZ the number one in the segment pretty fast. The engineers at Yamaha had a new challenge ahead of them: to create the new generation of street rumblers with a bigger engine and better dynamics. This led to the birth of the FZ25 and here is our attempt to declassify it.

Finally, it is here folks. Giving an end to all the renderings, spy shots and speculations, Yamaha launched the latest edition of the famed R15 globally in Indonesia and called it the 2017 Yamaha YZF-R15 V 3.0.

The launch happened at the Sentul Circuit and the bike was revealed amidst the brand’s WSBK 9-time world champion Valentino Rossi and Maverick Viñales and the CEO Yamaha Motor Corp Japan, Yanagi.

When the YZF - R15 rolled in 2008, Yamaha gathered enough success as it managed to capture the market leader boards. It gave us a product that was like a gateway for riders to get into the motorsport arena with this fully faired motorcycle having a powerful 150 cc mill. A lot of young riders opted for this superbike looker having a decent engine with high levels of refinement Yamaha is known for.

It received a facelift in 2011 and the R15 V2.0 received a lot of pomp and fair due to its striking design which now looked even sharper with very acute angles from every corner of the motorcycle. Off late, the R15 lost its lustre because of the insane amount of competition but that is about to change.

Some, including myself, were not very impressed with the V2.0. Yamaha somehow managed to screw up the maturity with regards to visuals on the V2.0 to make it look more toy-like. Luckily, the launch has the answer and we couldn’t have been much happier.

The upcoming motorcycle will compete directly with some other 200+ cc motorcycles of the country
A New Powerful Streetfighter From Yamaha Is Hitting The Indian Road On January 24th

Yamaha has already started teasing their new upcoming motorcycle on their social media channels before its launch on 24th January 2017. We can assure you all that this is definitely not a small commuter motorcycle but something more powerful than the FZ. However we are still not sure about its name yet.

For the past one month or so a new motorcycle was caught being tested on the Indian road and although it was wrapped in camouflage but it looked like a more powerful variant of the FZ. We are not sure about the engine yet but expect the new engine to be in between 250-300 cc displacement. The spy picture clearly revealed that the upcoming motorcycle will be powered by an air cooled unit assisted by oil cooler.

Expect the new air cooled, single cylinder engine to produce around 20-25 ps of peak power. As far as the styling is concerned we expect the new motorcycle to gets some of its inspiration from the M-Slaz while its headlamps resemble that of the Yamaha MT03. Also expect some premium features like upside down forks, split seats, LED daytime running lamps etc.

Expect this soon to be launched 200+ cc streetfighter to compete with some other motorcycles of its segment like the KTM Duke 200 and the soon to be launched Bajaj Pulsar 200 NS.

We will definitely update you with more details as soon as the motorcycle is launched here on 24th January 2017.

The Japanese Blue Team was, in fact, the one to give our country its first sports bike. In the 80’s, Yamaha came in with a motorcycle that was going to obliterate the records on any performance charts available at that time. The RD 350. The World’s fastest Indian.

The bike was first assembled in India from 1983 by the Escorts group under the brand name Rajdoot 350 (Hence RD 350), and by the end of 1990, the bike was completely manufactured here in India. This very motorcycle established the Rajdoot/Yamaha as a performance bike manufacturer in India which made the high accelerating, 2 stroke engine that could churn out 30.5 bhp with its 347cc engine. The stock Japanese version, however, made 39-40 bhp with the same power mill.

It was also the first motorcycle to feature a twin barrel exhaust and the famous “Torque Induction” ignition technology of Yamaha that could propel the bike to a cool 150-160 kph and sprint to a 100 kph in under 6 seconds. It became the undisputed king of uncharted territory in India.

We have been following the development of the 2017 Yamaha YZF - R15 V3.0 since the first spy shot was seen making the rounds on the internet even since early 2016. Post that, various render artists have imagined the motorcycle and have been updating their work as and when new information spruces up.

Yamaha's Upcoming Entry Level Performance Motorcycle Spotted: Walkaround Video

Yamaha’s upcoming mystery motorcycle is making rounds on the internet for quite some time now. We all are quite excited to know that atleast this won’t be another commuter from the Japanese two wheeler brand but an entry level performance motorcycle instead which will be positioned below the R3 and will be priced aggressively.

This is the first walkaround video of the test mule which was spied during testing on India road. Now whether this is the more powerful FZ or a completely different motorcycle is still unknown. However Yamaha has announced that they will be launching a new motorcycle on January 24th 2017. So we all can assume that this is perhaps the more powerful FZ variant that we all have been eagerly waiting for. The motorcycle shares some of its parts from Yamaha’s existing lineup take the disc brakes or the foot pegs for example but the powertrain seems to be an all new oil cooled unit. Now sharing parts with other existing Yamaha products means that Yamaha will definitely price the motorcycle aggressively.

When launched the all new Yamaha FZ200/250 will take on the Duke 200, Bajaj Dominar 400, Bajaj Pulsar AS200, RS200 and also the TVS ApacheRTR 200.

The spy video quite clearly shows that the new Yamaha motorcycle gets sleek and sharp looking headlamps cluster towards the front which also gets integrated LED daytime running lamps, while it also features a chiselled fuel tank with extended cowl, full digital instrument cluster, split seats and fatter rear tyres. The motorcycle gets disc brake towards both front and rear wheels and we are still not sure whether this motorcycle will come fitted with ABS or not.

Surpassing the fables of its famous FZ range, Yamaha has refurbished its naked streetfighter lineup with the MT range across the globe. Compared to the bulky and muscular looking motorcycles of FZ range, the entire roadster portfolio has been revised by the manufacturer with the new MT portfolio, which features new edgy and futuristic styling, new powertrains and new mechanicals, which have given an importance to Yamaha in the segment of naked streetfighters – a category in which Yamaha hasn’t been able to replicate as much tremendous recognition as it has achieved in the segment of faired supersports.

Starting off from the entry level MT-125 and extending all the way up to MT-10, Yamaha now has a comprehensive lineup of roadsters with the MT nameplate with a prominent presence in each and every segment. Speaking off the flagship, the MT-10, recently at the 2016 EICMA, Yamaha unveiled what can be its most outrageous looking motorcycle in its entire history till date, a performance specific variant of the MT-10, the new MT-10 SP. In simple words, the MT-10 SP is to MT-10 what the YZF R1M is to YZF R1. Here’s a quick outlook on what all revisions and additions does the new MT-10 SP gets over the regular MT-10:-

2017 Yamaha FZ 250

The entry level performance motorcycle segment of India is getting crowded and fast. We now have plenty of worthy motorcycles in this segment from different Home grown as well as Indian two wheeler manufacturers flooding this segment which ranges from INR. 1 to 3 Lakhs. Recently Bajaj too introduced their new power Cruiser as well which is powered by a 373 cc single cylinder engine which definitely has attracted plenty of attention amongst those who wants something little more exciting than their daily commuters. The one and only popular two wheeler manufacturer who was not into this game was Yamaha. Although they have launched the YZF R3 here in India last year but this was way above the reach of many because of its steep pricing. But with that said Yamaha soon will change all that because they are all set to introduce a more powerful FZ variant in India.

Now according to the recent report Yamaha is going to launch a new product in India on January 24th 2017. Now if we are not too wrong could this be the new and more powerful FZ variant which was caught testing couple of times on the Indian roads.

Yamaha introduced the second generation FZ in India in 2014 and although the motorcycle was equipped with fuel injection technology the motorcycles overall power output was reduced because the overall displacement of the engine was reduced as well to make it more fuel efficient. Now that hurt the sentiments of many because although this was a 150 cc motorcycle still the overall power output was way lower than its potential rivals. But now Yamaha definitely has a solution for those who wants a more powerful motorcycle within their budget

Could This Actually Be The New Generation Yamaha YZF R15 Version 3.0

The news of the next generation Yamaha R15 was going rounds on the internet for quite some time now. Yamaha updated the R15 back in the year 2011 and since then it has been almost 5 years that the motorcycle hasn’t received any major update. Now that the motorcycle is caught being tested it certainly gives us a hint that Yamaha will be launching the new motorcycle in the year 2017.

Now this spyshot reveals quite a number of interesting new details about this soon to be launched motorcycle. Some reports states that the motorcycle will get a completely new powertrain which will be a lot more powerful than the earlier motorcycle. Reports states that the Yamaha YZF R15 Version 3.0 will get a single cylinder, 155 cc engine which is expected to produce around 18-20 Bhp of peak power and an equally impressive 17-18 Nm of torque.

This spyshots also reveals that the motorcycle will get a restyled headlamp cluster, a completely new digital instrument cluster, upside down forks which will definitely be first in its segment, a lowered pillion seat, apart from a completely new exhaust system and wheel design. Unfortunately the motorcycle still hasn’t received any ABS system yet.

Expect the motorcycle to provide maximum value for money in its segment when it finally makes it to the Indian market and replaces the current model sometime next year.

In the last couple of years, the Indian market of two wheelers has seen an upward growth in terms of both sales numbers as well as maturity. Talking about the latter aspect, the urban Indian buyer is gradually beginning to think beyond the sole factor of fuel efficiency, as he wants something more from his machine – factors like comfort, features, added power and a bit more muscle in the machine he rides.
