IT has also splitted seat added where rear position is much higher just suitable for sports bike. BUt seat is not that comfortable as FZs.
# Engine Performance: Yamaha can be considered as one of the top two motorcycle manufacturing company in the World as well as reliable brand no doubt. The engine of the bikes are made in Japan. In the case of their bikes, in most of the cases, they are assembled in different countries like Indonesia, Thailand and India but they are origin of Japan. So, it seems that they are much more reliable than any Chinese and Indian brands no doubt. The bike FZs has very reliable engine which is now much more refined. It has four stroke, two valve and SOHC engine which can generate 12.9 Bhp max power and 12.8 NM max torque. The engine is air cooled instead of liquid cooled engine.

The front brake is single hydraulic disc and rear brake is drum. In that case, FZs is better than Benelli. It has front 267 mm disc brake wjhere rear, there is 130 mm drum brake. But there is a new version of FZs is available in the market where rear brake is also disc. So, dual disc brake lovers can buy the version.

Since the beginning, no people can say anything about it’s braking. It has very matured braking which makes the controlling very secured even for amateur riders. Besides, the bike has very comfortable seat and though, it is splitted but mush more comfortable than any same segment bikes. On the other side, Benelli TNT has not much comfortable seat just like FZs. It has splitted but higher rear seat which is not so suitable for female. Besides, the bike is a newborn in Bangladesh and we yet to learn much about it’s controlling but being an Italian origin product, it would not disappoint a rider.

Due to that the mileage of the bike is increasing than the first version. Current the new version of the bike used to provide almost 45 km mileage average which is so inspiring.
