Weight(with oil & a full fuel tank)
The silhouette of FZ FI has been given a forward lean to create a “Forward Massive Form” design that expresses a sense of hidden power. This was achieved by harmonizing the fuel tank design with its pushed forward look, the compact tail assembly, the short muffler and other elements.
Front Disc with Bosch Anti-Lock Braking System (ABS) helps in achieving improved braking performance by providing better stability and control at all speeds. Rear Disc brake augments more quality to the long legacy of FZ braking system.
The new FZ-FI model mounts an air-cooled 4-stroke 149cc SOHC, 2-valve, single-cylinder fuel-injected “BLUE CORE” engine, and engine’s settings were optimized to further polish the feeling of superior acceleration from stops and exhilarating feeling when overtaking. The ignition timing and injection maps for the fuel injection system were completely redone so that riders get a good feeling of acceleration while still enjoying the laidback, upright riding position.
An A&S (assist and slipper) clutch is adopted to reduce the weight of the clutch pull and provide low-stress shifting during deceleration. The A&S helps to reduce fatigue for the rider. This also prevents excessive engine braking, thus reducing it’s effects on chassis behavior. The A&S clutch makes for smooth, enjoyable downshifts.
The Negative LCD instrument cluster panel has a black background and white lettering. Digital speedometer, bar-style tachometer above, and a fuel gauge are constantly displayed, along with ABS warning lamp while the odometer, Trip 1, Trip 2, F Trip, clock and others can be selected for display. There is also an ECO indicator to enable more fuel-efficient riding.
The two-level seat has an excellent feeling of fit and cushioning that works well with an upright, relaxed riding position. The cushioning material has a suitable degree of firmness and is paired with a seat material that offers superb fit to provide a steady ride and comfort for both the rider and pillion rider. The pillion seat has a 16% larger seating surface area, is 26 mm wider in the hip area and is 5 mm thicker for added comfort.
It provides an excellent shock-absorbing performance and a good feeling of stability during braking. The rear suspension is a lightweight Monocross suspension unit that contributes to mass centralization and provides 120mm of wheel travel, which is tuned for good balance between the spring rate and damping force.
