Coming in for revision in 2017 is Yamaha’s naked sports machine in the 150 cc class, the Yamaha FZ150i, at RM9,126.28, including GST, but excluding registration, insurance and road tax. Currently the best selling motorcycle in Malaysia in the 150 cc segment, the three new colours for 2017 are Red, Yellow and Blue.

Powered by a four-valve, SOHC, single-cylinder 149.8 cc power plant that produces 16.3 hp at 8,500 rpm and 14.5 Nm of torque at 7,500 rpm, the FZ150i gets power to the ground via a five-speed gearbox. With a claimed dry weight of 117 kg, the FZ150i carries its fuel in a 12-litre fuel tank.

Braking is done with hydraulic discs front and rear, and suspension is by a conventional telescopic fork with a monoshock propping up the rear end. Seat height is set at 790 mm, which makes the Yamaha FZ150i suitable for most riders.

The 2017 Yamaha FZ150i with new colours will be in official Yamaha dealerships by mid-June. The previous colour range will no longer be available effective immediately.
