Yamaha Fazer 25 ABS vs Honda CBR250R ABS (Quick Comparison): Yamaha Fazer 25 ABS is now available in India for a price that can put any other faired motorcycle to shame. The quarter-litre motorcycles are now limited in number as most brands have moved to the 300cc segment to extract more power with a similar amount of weight.

Honda CBR250R ABS is the direct rival to the faired Yamaha motorcycle, with both getting dual-channel unit for the most reliable braking experience. Honda offers a liquid cooled engine with more emphasis on peak power while Yamaha uses an affordable setup with air+oil cooling and emphasis on healthy torque. Both the models are available with single LED headlight design.

Yamaha Fazer 25 can be bought in Metallic Black and Dark Matt Blue shade while the 250cc CBR is available in Matte Axis Gray Metallic with Mars Orange / Striking Green, Pearl Sports Yellow, and Sports Red. Both the options are great for touring lovers as the stress-free engines can cruise all day long at triple digit speeds.

Coming to the cost factor, Yamaha definitely saves a lot of money for the owner as the price difference between both the models is INR 52,000. That amount can help anyone buy a scooter for city-specific purposes. Here is a quick specification-focused comparison between Honda CBR250R and Yamaha Fazer 25.

Yamaha FZS V3 vs Hero Xtreme 200R: The quick comparison between Yamaha FZS V3 and Hero Xtreme 200R can help you understand the difference between product placement by India’s two high-selling brand names. Xtreme 200R is built on the value for money mindset as maximum riders prefer conventional components with less emphasis on minor performance enhancements. It uses a carburettor setup, 37mm front forks, and 130mm rear tire. On the other hand, Yamaha is using fuel injection, 140-section rear tire and thick 41mm forks with better handling than most other bikes around the segment.

Still, the price difference of INR 7,100 is enough to push many buyers in the Xtreme 200R’s direction. The motorcycle features 17.1 Nm of torque and thus, relaxed riding on the Xtreme 200R is way ahead of the FZS V3’s potential. The design is truly a personal factor as many consider getting regular sports commuter design lines instead of the streetfighter look of the FZS V3. Here is a specification comparison for both the bikes.

Yamaha FZS V3 vs Suzuki Gixxer (Quick Comparison): Yamaha FZS V3 is the most expensive motorcycle of its segment while Suzuki Gixxer 155 is the most value for money street fighter that one can buy in India. The difference in price for both the bikes roughly equates to INR 10,000 (on-road) and thus, buyers have more than one reason to reconsider their preferences after going through the comparison. The Gixxer is powered by a bigger engine, brings better top-end to the rider and even weighs 1 kg lighter than the third generation FZS. On the other hand, the FZS brings fuel injection and LED headlight to the package.

Suzuki Gixxer ABS is also the most affordable 150cc segment motorcycle with ABS in India as even commuter-spec Honda xBlade costs closer to the performance-friendly Gixxer. Yamaha FZS feels overpriced by almost INR 5,000 in front of all other rivals, except for the TVS Apache RTR 160 4V with INR 92,145 worth price tag. Yamaha FZS comes in three shades named Matt Black, Dark Matt Blue and Gray/Cyan Blue while Suzuki Gixxer can be had in Metallic Triton Blue, Glass Sparkle Black, and Red/Silver shades. Suzuki Gixxer is yet to receive a mid-life-cycle update for India. Here is a quick comparison between the 2019 FZS V3 ABS and the Gixxer 155 ABS.

Yamaha FZS V1 vs V2 vs V3 (Detailed Comparison): Yamaha FZ started a trend of street machines by pushing the sports commuter segment behind since its introduction. The first generation FZ was derived from the litre-class FZ1, flaunting similar muscular fuel tank, wide front and rear tire, commanding seating position and digital instrument console. The motorcycle was introduced in 2008 with the name FZ16 while a few years later, the second generation model named FZ V2 arrived. Along with the two generations of FZ, a popular dual tone variant named Yamaha FZS was always available for those who loved colour combinations. The comparison here is between the first, second and third generation of the FZS.

Yamaha FZS V1
Yamaha FZS V1

Yamaha FZS V1 was powered by a 153cc, single cylinder, carburettor-fed engine. The motor was good for 14 HP at 7500 rpm and 13.6 Nm at 6000 rpm. The current-gen fans of Yamaha FZ series were all possible due to the impressive performance of this first generation model. The motorcycle was just 135 kg in weight and featured the same tire size as all other generations. Yamaha FZS V2 came with an updated 149cc, single cylinder engine with fuel injection as standard. The reduction in weight compensated the power loss while mileage improved considerably with the update. The second-gen FZS was also available with a rear disc and a bigger 282mm front disc.

Yamaha FZS V3 was recently launched for INR 97,000 (ex-showroom). The last retail price for FZS V2 rear disc was INR 86,000 for the blue shade and INR 87,000 for the Darknight Edition. The third generation FZS comes with a 12.8-litre fuel tank, all-new LED headlight, comfortable seating and single-channel ABS. The average price difference between all three generations is INR 10,000 while feature additions played important role in the price jumps. The model first gained fuel injection and improved the mileage factor while the focus on safety came in action through the next update. Here is a quick comparison between Yamaha FZS V1, FZS V2, and FZS V3.

KTM 250 Duke vs Honda CBR250R (Quick Comparison): KTM 250 Duke and Honda CBR250R fall in two segments with their body type classification. Still, the powerful quarter-litre engines under the tank are good for impressive outputs and decent mileage figure for their size. KTM is using a high output engine with almost 3.5HP of more output than the CBR250R.

Not just that, KTM 250 Duke is seen here rivalling the most reliable motorcycle of its class. The CBR250R is known for stress-free ownership experience and has proven itself by going countless kilometres for several Indian riders. However, the design now feels not-so-attractive in front of other modern day machines like Apache RR310, Yamaha R15 V3, and KTM RC390. However, it still has a lot to promise.

Yamaha FZS V3 vs TVS Apache RTR 160 (Quick Comparison): Yamaha FZS V3 is an eligible rival to the frugal TVS Apache RTR 160 4V in India. The price range for both the models is different as Apache is yet to add the dual-channel ABS feature into their motorcycle. Yamaha FZS V3 comes with single channel ABS, all-new design and reliable 149cc engine. Apache 160 4V comes with a bigger 160cc engine and can be had with either fuel injection or the carburettor-fed version. As Yamaha offers fuel injection as standard, the top-spec model of Apache 160 4V is a direct rival to the new Yamaha FZS V3.

As Yamaha charged a decent sum for ABS and features like LED light, TVS fans can expect a price hike of INR 10,000 for the dual channel ABS model. If they plan a single channel unit for RTR 160 4V, the price can be kept under INR 1 lakh. Apache RTR 160 4V is powered by a 16.8 HP, 159.7cc oil-cooled engine. The value is much higher in comparison to the 13.2 HP of max output from FZS V3. The weight difference of 10 kg may help FZS riders compensate some power difference but still, the top end of rpm range will favour the new Apache for sure.

Aprilia GPR 150 vs Honda CBR150R (Quick Comparison): Aprilia GPR 150 and Honda CBR150R are two impressive lightweight racers that the Indian market can get in 2019. The former was recently spied at a dealer event, hinting that Aprilia is expecting to enter the popular motorcycle segment as early as possible.

The motorcycle is different in comparison to the model (RS 150) seen at Auto Expo 2018, sharing every possible element with their China-based model. Even the name GPR 150 is seen on the Chinese variant. Honda CBR150R is yet to make an official entry into India, either through a test mule or a model that can be showcased to the dealers.

The performance values of both the bikes are highly comparable, with CBR getting benefits of its lightweight body while GPR 150 bringing higher overall power output. The tyre size, rear brake size, and 2-channel ABS stay same on both the models. The torque output is higher on CBR150R. Here is a quick comparison list for both the bikes.

Honda CBR600RR vs Kawasaki Ninja ZX-6R (Quick Comparison): Kawasaki Ninja ZX-6R is the only middleweight racer available in this segment in India. Apart from the indirect rivalry with litre-class motorcycles with lower than usual output, the ZX-6R has a few international rivals on the list. The closest possible rival is Honda CBR600RR, producing the peak power and torque at almost similar rev points. The additional 37cc of displacement helps Ninja ZX-6R claim higher performance quotient than any of the motorcycles around the segment.

Honda CBR600RR

The power difference is 12 HP while torque is higher by 4.8 Nm on the ZX-6R. Both the motorcycles use similar suspension dimensions and brake sizes. The front brake size is 310mm for both the bikes while even the tire size remains similar at 120 and 180-section. Being equal in terms of weight, Kawasaki directly benefits from the high power output. Here is a quick comparison for the recently launched Kawasaki Ninja ZX-6R and not-yet-launched Honda CBR600RR.

Yamaha R15 V1 vs V2 vs V3 (Detailed Comparison): Yamaha R15 was first launched in India in 2008 and ten years later, the third generation model arrived with better than ever performance and equipment list. R15 V1 was the first motorcycle of its kind, using race-derived chassis, powerful engine, and technology that was missed on most of the products in 2008. The motorcycle featured liquid cooling, fuel injection and full-faired body with perfect proportions for that time. The first generation ruled the tracks for a short period of time as September 2011 witnessed the launch of R15 V2 in the country. The motorcycle was essentially an R15 V1 with better tires, refined design lines and head-turning tail section.

Yamaha used a better-looking exhaust, refined engine and better colours on the second generation model. The 149cc engine on the motorcycle remained unchallenged for a full decade before the introduction of their new 155.1cc engine on the third generation model. The current generation of the lightweight motorcycle, popularly called R15 V3, is good for 2.3 HP worth more output in comparison to the first two models which generate 17 HP of maximum power. Not just that, it comes with an all-digital console, slipper clutch and ABS over the old versions. The price hike of INR 12,000 helped the R15 V3 achieve the much-awaited 2-channel ABS unit in India.

The complete life-cycle of both first and second generation model was filled with higher than ever numbers. Yamaha even introduced the R15-S variant to help customers who missed the rear seat comfort on the R15 V2. In comparison to the Indonesia-spec model, the Indian version of R15 V3 is seen with conventional forks and different footpeg holders. The model is also the first one to bring LED lights as standard. The first generation model weighs just 131 kg while one decade of engineering has added 11 kg to the overall motorcycle weight. Also, the iconic 1290mm of wheelbase for R15 V1 is still the best-in-class figure in the Indian industry.
