Yamaha Fazer semi fairing motorcycle is a dream for all who love bikes.. A simple yet stylish looking bike that has gone ahead and stolen the hearts of many. Yamaha designed this keeping tourers in mind and have done a lot of tweaks and updates over the years to keep it fresh and updated.
People who do a lot of touring in and around Bangalore will have a great oppertunity to enjoy this dream machine.
A case with arun kumar proves this beyond doubt.
Arun kumar is an young tourer working for a software company, and keeps his weekends for touring in places like coorg, malnad and even as far as moonar and thekkadi. He always ride from Bangalore.
The reason he owns this machine is simple..The freedom. The tourers are leisure riders and there is no racing and drag in ride. Obviously, there is no urgency and time means nothing to them.
He enjoys nature and wildlife in areas where four wheelers refuses to go..And fazer Loves to enter..
Why Fazer is wonderful for this weekend riding?
The Yamaha Fazer spec is same 14HP, 153cc engine like FZ which is without doubt excellently refined and there is absolutely no change to it. This means that, as in the case of the FZ, the entire ride quality is best for city commuting at 60kmph mark.The gearshifts are butter smooth and have precision to it even after long hours of riding.
However, what might have impressed Arun us is the kind of acceleration that this mill produces between 3000 the 6500 RPM range, the throttle position sensor that varies the ignition timing and provides accurate and precision sparks, the Yamaha Fazer is truly alive only in this range.
And this is the range the tourers and naturalists enjoy!
The Yamaha Fazer with its stylish looks gets an amazing impression. This is the only semi-faired bike under 1lac for an Indian consumer. The twin headlamps of Fazer has a striking appeal when you look at it. The fairing might be seen as an extrusion initially but, once you are accustomed to this looks you will not complain.
The good thing is the fairing does not hamper the movement. The plastics on the bike are of top-notch quality and this bike also receives the plastic fuel tank as in FZ. Build quality is supreme without any vibrations from the fairing or engine. It is one smooth ride from home to any tourist destination and back!
The Yamaha Fazer gives the rider a semi sporty yet relaxed seating position and a good view ahead beyond the fairing. Further, the tires allow you to push this machine through any kind of road with pride. This is what required for most of the offroading tracks in virgin forests around Bangalore and Karnataka.
Bangalore is known for tourers.There are so many groups, and when they go for trekking and other adventure stuffs..Yamaha Fazer comes in handy.You ca trust its super smooth vibration free engine and the grippy tires which planted but are quite comfortable for prolonged rides for long distances.
The comfort is further enhanced by the mono shock suspension that Yamaha employs in this machine. Tourers expect extreme weather on the way, The wind blasts at high speeds are reduced considerably due to the tall front visor and hence the comfort on highways is much better than on the FZ. The braking department is headed by a 267 mm disc at the front, which gives a spongy feel just as that on the FZ, but we find it to be sufficient enough for the kind of speeds that this machine is capable of. On the other end of the bike, the rear drum brake is sharp and has a very good bite to it.
