seen the Black one adds more macho and powerful look to the FZ 16. The red one also looks good as it is couple of shades darker than that of the R 15. will have to wait and watch for the Orange as IMO would also look neat on the FZ..cheers:

There would be a green color which guess would come up in some time..Yamaha is using the same technique they used for the R 15 i,e they introduce two colors first Black and Blue and they latter got the Wine Red color..so we should be able to see the green and yellow colors on the FZ 16 in the future..

Default Booked it Orange!!!

The red color of the FZ 16 didnt appear as appealing as the R15. And the black is quite a common color(most of the P200 here in hdyerabad are black)

Flaming Orange is the only color which is unique of the three colors. Also no other bike AFAIK comes with this color. Oh! please dont talk about the RTR EFI, that orange looks plasticky to me(no offense meant to any one).

I think this orange is similar to the color which comes in the Fabia!!!(no no this is not the reason for picking up the orange one.

I have selected red here, I guess it suits the bike more rather than being too loud, which in my opinion is orange, though it looks very nice.

Default :thumbs up : The colors can be changed

Pacer Motors - dealers in Blr said that the panels can be changed for approx 1 K, so in all if you invest an additional 2K you could have a new color bike everyday. that is the beauty of the design in the new F16 oops i mean FZ16 :-)
I personally liked the black, but would also get the flaming orange panels so that I could switch the colors once in a while.

I think ORANGE is looking really good, not too bright, not too loud.

I have seen the bike in flesh today. The bike looks beefy and muscular. A perfect street bike. Loved the tyres and the look of the bike.

Regardin the color, I got to know one very interesting point. You can change the color of the bike by just spending 1800 bucks. Except the tank scoops and front mudguard, the rest of the bike is same for all the three colors. All these panels just cost 1800 bucks. Change these panels with the color that you want and enjoy.

I vote for the Black any day.
Though the Orange would look good, it can't beat the Black!
