The third version of the Yamaha FZ is from the elite family of the commuter bikes. It was 2008 when Yamaha launched the first version of the bike. It was a hit. It had a muscular tank, incredible design and an insane power to be known as the macho street fighter.

In 2014, the second version of the bike was released with a fuel-injected engine. But the power was cut back as the owners of the first version complained about the high petrol consumption.

Now, in 2019, the third version of FZ is released with the nostalgic first version design and performance of the second version.

Verdict

The bike is designed for both cities and touring as it has comfortable seating and fewer jerks on the bumpy roads. The bike is fit for Kathmandu's roads filled with potholes. However, the people have complained about the bike to be like the first version of Fz with steroids. Meaning, the bike has become overly muscular and does not back up with the power as expected by the looks of it.
