    im my total view fz 16 is the king & people who want mileage can go 4 cbz extreme,people should pay that premium 4 fz16 4 that ur getting a fantastic & marvelous bike,no 150cc bikes can’t beat the fz 16……..#DJ RON#

  • By prashant, March 22, 2009 @ 3:02 am

    i have got hero honda CBZ xtreme…wen u drive it, u cant think of any other bike in 150 cc range…forget abt d looks…wen u r riding at 100-110 kmph…who cares abt d looks….yamaha fz comes wid slightly broader handle….which is not convinient in traffic….and comparatively CBZ has more pick up dan FZ….u can touch 80-90 kmph within 7 to 8 secs if u r a good rider…..

  • By Bala, March 28, 2009 @ 5:52 am

    Hey dudes

    i have been searching for a good bike past three months finally i have purchased cbz xtreme actually its a gods bike some bikes are only lord of the street xtreme is lord of the street as well as high way but only one problem little bit height and weight other than that i am very satisfied with the performance its looks bike but while riding its like cycle how every you want you can tilt it friends just i am advising you all blindly go for xtreme

  • By XYZ, April 22, 2009 @ 11:58 am

    X-Treme is good but who said that its lord of high ways – baap ka raaj hain kya?????

    The only one lord of the street is FZ 16 and FZ S

    There is no lord of highways as of now … do not create your own tag line unless you are producing bikes ok????

  • By piyush, May 5, 2009 @ 2:56 pm

    come with ur fz n race with me time will decide which is the best bike ur fz or my cbz

  • By Aaron Cardoz, May 15, 2009 @ 5:07 am

    I have pulled a CBZ extreme with my new FZ 16 after the first service since i can go till max 65-75 and not more…i reached that speed much faster and the 5th gear pickup speed is only 30km/h. Its throttle response is awesome and picks up on any gear very fast. The broad handle on the contrast is much more comfortable and the reason for it being nearly straight and broad is because of the longer and broader front forks…

  • By dEv, May 17, 2009 @ 7:36 am

    FZ is for those who wants to show-off n waste daddy’s money!!! For practical bikers who wants a good combination of power n mileage, go for Xtreme.. No more comments coz i don’t have any of these bikes.. :P

  • By firdoz, May 20, 2009 @ 8:34 am

    hi guys, to be frank the best bike in the 150cc is cbz ofcourse now its cbz extreme, cbz was powerful bike in early 2000 and is the powerful bike as of now in 2009 and also will be the powerful bike in 2020 as well. if there are any guys who want to go for a bike in 150cc segment, I would suggest them to go for cbz and incase if they want to chose any other bike other than cbz, they can, but in future they would definitely realise that the biggest mistake they hav done is going for some other bike other than cbz, the peformance in awesome and ofcourse people need not talk about the pick up that cbz has, pickup cant be compared to any other bike coz it boosts with power in less than 5 seconds. Believe me cbz-150 cc is almost equal to pulsar 180cc, I wud not say its more than 180cc but it almost equals 180cc pulsar, so you can imagine what kind of pickup and handling power cbz has….

  • By bala, June 11, 2009 @ 12:42 am

    i own a fz its top speed is 121……and it will go more thn tht coz …..i ve sum more throttle power to go for………….the look u get ……and mileage depends on how u drive de bike……coz sum idiots they don no how 2 drive and everytime use those clutch so how cum they ill get good mileage……….mileage not depends on the bike…if u ride it properly ull get around 40 – 45 …..thts a better mileage……..

  • By Swapnil, June 23, 2009 @ 4:56 am

  • By sanjeev kc, July 4, 2009 @ 6:09 am

    hi i’m from kathmandu,NEPAL. i ve recently had a FZ-S ,and there is no doubt that in 150-180CC category FZ is the best bike. coz it has best look, pick-up, and mielage according to its performance. there is a common complain abt its mielage. trust me this bike gives 40 of mielage in city. and i think this is good. even if anybody is not satisfies with this mielage they can go for, splendor+ or libero G5 or platina hahaha . if u wanna ride the best bike , u ve to pay a little more guys..

    Hi, guys
    I was searching for good bike from last one month.
    I took test ride of Unicorn FZ & CBZ. Believe me CBZ is better than the rest . No doubts FZ looks good but performance wise CBZ is the best. I am going to buy CBZ, it rocks!!!

  • By GK, October 23, 2009 @ 10:51 pm

    Guys,
    Both FZ and CBZ are good in its own way, But when it comes to service and spares availability, and HH comes out as the winner. After all, ur bikes performance depends upon the quality of service. After sales service of Yamaha is pathetic, where as HH has always been a topper in customer satisfaction, so look before u leap….

  • By Mayur, November 13, 2009 @ 1:50 pm

    Hi Guys,

    Bought CBZ xtreme 10 days back. Now Im facing following problems:
    1. Vibrates after 70kmph.
    2. Bike pulls towards left side.
    3. Gear shift problem(automatically shifts from 1st to neutral)

    Finally if you want good bike go for any bike other than CBZ. It sucks….
    Shame on hero honda

    better would be unicorn…

    Hey …

    I have Yamaha FZ…. and I made it reached to 125 km/hr……and those who are talking abt pick up….then let me tell you its totally depends upon the combination of gear/clutch/acceleration…….if you change gear too fast by applying clutch and without accelerating then how the hell you will get pick up………

    FZ is best…….F**K the rest…….

    i wanna tell some really unbiased thing.
    because i have both the bikes.

    The feeling u get when u r riding FZ16 is gr8,
    gr8 balance, gr8 ride, gr8 handling, and i have touched 117 km top speed on highways.
    as far as looks concerned…. it is literally “LORD OF STREET”
    looks like all those who r writing here against FZ are really jealous of the LORD OF STREET.
    please take a test ride of FZ16 once and chnage ur opinions

  • By Lets race!, March 17, 2010 @ 1:57 pm

    Are you all nuts those bikes are as good as hell on their goal. I have fz-s and my father cbz x(2008 variant). Look at the torque and also at stroke and bore which are not listed. Yamahas torque is higher at lower rpm than cbz x and even that of apacha 160.
    Bore and stroke is also higher than both bikes. Yamaha mainly focused its torque on low mid. Its pickup is higher at 0-60 but after 60 both fz and cbz are same. Even both bike have also almost same top speed. I did 129 on fz and 126 on cbz x. But mind it fz is designed for street(ofcourse crowded one) not for highway thats why it came with broad handle and macho rear tyre. I handle traffic with ease but in long drive i feel uneasy with my hand and back. I think thats for low ground clearance. But cbz xtreme does not bother a lil on long way. And thus those two bike is on their goal. Cbz is total comfort and yamaha total handling. Thats why i drove mine 60 at shap turn at ease and at 45 in cbz x.
    But its true fz outperform cbz x in looks. Its just charming. But for long drive i will choose cbz x. And stop crying abt mileage. If you want that then remove your tyres(specially for fz) from both bike and put spelendor or some bicycle tyre on them!
    Yeah power depends on torque, stroke,bore.
    Top speed trully at your skill.

  • By aashis shrestha, March 19, 2010 @ 7:47 pm

    its totally depends on you which one better. some one says cbz is good . but they dont mind in look . if u want sporty bike and nice looking . and defferent in street . that yamaha is best

    hi…..i checked the comments….speed is good bt what i consider is power and milage.and LOOK also…The cbz xtreme provides alla these…so i am going to buy one soon…..How can a decent company executive ride such a monster like FZ…i disagree…

    Nice post, thanks for writing!

  • By kamal, May 10, 2010 @ 1:10 am

    Well cbz-xtreme is for heighted guys and shorted too…..
    I m 6 feet tall and i owns cbz-x its gr8 bike yaar…..
    It gives me milage around 45-50 kmpl…
    I have drived fz-16 seriously it’s not for longer guys yaar…..
    It’s too small and u have to lean forward to drive it so it’s not good for comfort…

  • By kamal, May 10, 2010 @ 1:15 am

    if u r tourer then go for cbz….
    I have ride it at 120 km/hr this is its topspeed, if other r getting more then it may be meters error…..
    I had driven fz-16 at 110km/hr but it may do even more…..
    I was bit afraid at 90 to 110km/hr…..

  • By chin2, May 27, 2010 @ 11:18 am

    hey guys fz is the best rest is bakwas………………n look at cbz …sali uncles wali bike hai………youngsters should nt ride that shit lukin bike….n people who r sayin milege of fz is less these people shud go for patina,passion etc…u all deserve these bikes only…..

  • By chin2, May 27, 2010 @ 11:23 am

    i myself own a fz for the past 8 months now……….n i hve nt having a single prob till now………givin average of 40-42 n u all know looks are vry attractive……so go for fz plz…..fz looks like a devil on roads n every other bike on road…..cbz olso….fz’s best….go for it….n offcourse the name yahama attached is itself a point dat why u shud buy fz….

  • By chin2, May 27, 2010 @ 11:28 am

    @kamal : dude im myself 6 feet 2 inches n im nt facing any problem in driving fz in terms of height…….i hve also took cbz for a drive n i found fz to be more comfortable…..n the sitting posture is much much better then cbz…..

  • By prateek, June 8, 2010 @ 2:14 am

    guys wait for a second who says that cbz is better than fz in pickup
    its a crap when compared to fz
    if you go for a drag only pulsar 220 and apache rtr180 remain ahead of fz and that also after achiving the speed of 80 kmph
    fz has the fastest pickup(0-80) in the 150 – 180cc
    you dont need more than 80 in city and i dont think you need any of this on highway while touring and all.
    getting to mileage there are people who are getting 52+ and some as low as 25
    and belive me i know them both
    I too own a fz-s that i bought on 3-7-2010
    and im getting mileage of 43+ at present its the electric blue colour and im personally in love with it
    what you gonna look at faster
    (0-60) or (0-80 ).
    anybody who thinks that fz lags in anything come to my city faizabad or i think tell me yours and lets have a race
    just try racing with a good or experinced rider any know the difference.
    i dont say that you should not go for the bike that you like
    but comparing performance wise fz
    still rules
    and literally im the lord of the streets
    i have ridden everything you can think of when bikes are the subject

  • By Akshay Harlikar, June 29, 2010 @ 9:05 pm

    I was in troble of getting this two bike but when i compared this bike i found that fz give 40 mileage and xtreme gives 60.performence of xtreme is good than fz.and parts of fz are costly.if you want bike on indian road then go for cbz xreme live of the edge.

  • By Anubhav, August 17, 2010 @ 4:57 am

    Hey guys I have red all the above mentioned comments which are being posted since year’s ago abt the bikes, I have Karizma R. All the guys are debating for FZ & cbzx but let me tell u the story coz all my frnds having the two bikes & fz’s owner is facing lot of problm right now like – milege (27km/l),misfire,battery & servicing, also the spare parts are too costly & not available freely in the market. The Fz sucs after 70/80 km/hr & it is only16 mont’s older ( 17000 km). The owner got back pain problem also thts why he avoid to ride on a long distance with fz.
    But the cbzx is 22 months (25000km) giving a milege of 44-48 km/l, still having a good pick up with a top speed of 118 km/hr. So with all the aspects now U guys just decide which one is tthe best for long term purpose,..,,.,.!!!!

  • By desmond, August 28, 2010 @ 7:19 am

    fzzzz-16………who no 150cc bik can beat fz on pickup……….superb feature,,ie can be moved frm rest in 1st,2nd ,3rd ,4th n 5th gear……………just try it out……………also has most stylish loooks……..

  • By anil kumar, September 17, 2010 @ 2:43 am

  • By vivek, September 24, 2010 @ 7:09 am

    ALL OF U WHO ARE READING ALL THESE ARTICLES…….PLZ NOTE…….
    ……”IF U GO FOR THE THE LOOKS,THEN YOU SHOULD GO FOR OTHER BIKES.” ……BUT IF U WANNA GO FOR QUALITY,COMFORT,POWER,BETTER MILAGE AND DEFINITELY FOR GOOD LOOKS THEN U MUST PREFER CBZ EXTREME IS THE BEST ONE FOR YOU”…….
    BE AN INDIAN……DON’T FOLLOW THOSE FOOLISH RIDERS FOLLOWING OTHER COUNTRIES….
    PLZ DON’T MIND YAMAHA FZ,R15 ARE SUPERB BIKES…… I LIKE THEM TOO YAAR…BUT ONE SHOULD THINK FOR SPARE PARTS,,,,,SERVICING,,,,,AND TO RIDE ON INDIAN ROADS……AND MOST OF ALL FOR OUR COUNTRY…….BEST OF LUCK GUYS…..GO FOR THE BEST …BUT DO NOT GO FOR SPEED ……BE CAREFUL ABOUT YOUR RIDING….
