found this picture on a very interesting/amusing blog

Me thinks the 4 positions mentioned are probably guidelines to design media (website, brochures, ADs etc.)

Wow! It has got a negative pressure type carburetor!!!
What's a triple Macho concept?? Three grown men riding triples?

41mm Front forks are cool. 140 section seems overkill on a 150cc machine.

This is the bike from Yamaha which i have been waiting for. It not only looks good but also has a good feel and design. Only hope it can out run the Hunks, P150 & RTZ's on the road and it will surely be a big hit.

I like the front & Rare even more than the R15. it looks more proportionate than the R15, as the front and back look a part of the same design where as in the R15 the front is stunning while the back is totally sober.

ITS DEFINITIVELY MY BIKE.

ps.
1) What's the negative pressure type carburetor? How is it different from the regular Carburetor say YBX How does it effect on power and eff?

2) Does Full LCD display mean no use of Analog Taco? That explains the small Console.

Negative pressure type carburetor is nothing but a fancy name for the regular CV (constant velocity). CV carbs work on the negative pressure principle, means the slide moves up & down due to engine vacuum.

The YBX has a normal slide carburetor, the slide moves up when the throttle cable pulls it up.

CV carb is a compromise between power & fuel economy. Slide carbs yield the best power if tuned correctly. CV carb offers a linear and smooth throttle response.

The bike looks macho. Wish they had put at least 180 cc engine with sufficient power.
Any idea on the price and power piece? I read discussions about price being in the ballpark of 70K but dont know whether that is true.

Thanks you.
this means that the power and eff will both be at the optimum.

Will this cab use the AIS like my YBX or it will have a independent Air Screw system seen on most bikes? Sorry

I don't know what the AIS stands for.

CV carbs found on Indian bikes both Keihin and Mikuni BS doesn't have an air screw. It has a volume control screw in the pilot circuit. Volume control screw controls the amount of petrol that goes into the engine through pilot circuit. When this screw is turned clockwise the mixture is leaned, when turned anticlockwise it becomes richer.

guess we need to edit the title of this thread as the bike now will not be known as FZ/FZ150 but will be called as FZ 16..
I like the option of colors given by Yamaha, esp the green and the red color..
Guys, is the color on the FZ 16 couple of shades darker than that of the R 15??

AIS is secondary air injection system for emissions.

Any idea whats the fork size of 3 bigdogs. R15, RTR and Zma?

I guess this bike is for the style crowd and fat tire= style.

But I thought the R15 was a tubeless radial too ??

I think the R15 and the FZ16 would be having same front forks. I'm not sure but it looks like it.

Pulsar 220 has one of the thickest front forks of all the bikes made here, but it's only 37mm compared to FZ's 41mm.
