Honestly speaking the bike looks disgusting in the pictures i have seen across the web.

HH - Grow up .. !!

Only good thing I see is the rear discs ! 0.6 BHP increase is a JOKE !

Fazer fed with 200+ CC engine would kill all competetion i feel.

TR of Fazer was wonderful.

Headlight looks like a it's a clean copy of the GS150's headlamp.

End product is not what the fans wanted but anyway much improved over the older model. I like it.

Ugly ugly...
Fairing and the rear cowls don't gel with the bike. The bike looks rather like a high quality Karol bagh hack job. The only saving grace is the rear disk and the speedo console. But performance of the bike will be clear only after a proper TR

AS of now, I'll stick to my karizma anyday..

The display is good. Hope all those flairing wont rattle few 1000kms down the road. The rear should have been more meaty; maybe wider tyres should help with that issue at the cost of performance.

why persist with the puny tyres on an otherwise well proportioned bike makes no sense- and i dont buy the FE argument since the ZMA is not aimed at the "average kya hai" crowd in the first place.

Looks are not that bad, esp front on IMHO- just needs better tyres and more power. On current specs, the P220 looks a better buy.

Why cribbing about tyres?
even R15 looks awkward with stock rubber,but most know how sticky they are.

Couldn't agree more. I am now feeling i did the right thing by not waiting for the new Zma and went ahead with the purchase of the P220.

I do not like the fairing. The speedo console is awesome.

The new features are great. It would have been good if there was an increase in power. I restrain my final verdit until I take a test drive.
