What is good and bad in FZS-FI V3?
- FZS-FI V3 PositivesBig bike styling, features, smooth engine.
- FZS-FI V3 NegativesPerformance isn’t up to the mark, the quality of plastics feels sub-par.
- Expert’s ConclusionIn nearly every aspect, except maybe ergonomics and braking, the Yamaha FZS-FI v3.0 fails to impress. While its motor offers better fuel efficiency compared to the previous-gen model, it lacks grunt. If you have around Rs 1 lakh to invest, you’re better off with say a TVS Apache RTR 160 4V, Bajaj Pulsar NS 160 or the Suzuki Gixxer.
