The Pulsar 150 was the 150 cc king and it still sells well thanks to the brand that it has become. It is a good motorcycle, but it's rivals have caught up and surpassed it in terms of overall performance. It has been around for a long time now and looks like the rest of the Pulsar family, so you are unlikely to get second looks wherever you go. It comes with a digital speedo which incorporates the fuel gauge, trip and odometer functions. Also available are backlit switches and an LED tail light which the FZ does without. The FZ is miles ahead of the Pulsar when it comes to dynamic behaviour. Both ride and handling are superior to the Pulsar's thanks to the beefy cycle parts and stiff chassis. The Pulsar rides well, but high speed handling is not a patch on that of the FZ. At city speeds though, you will have nothing to complain about; the Pulsar steers quickly and precisely into gaps. If you want a value for money commuter, the Pulsar still makes sense. If you want the better bike, go for the FZ.

hey all m guneet from new delhi.. iv been riding fz16 from 16th june 2009 till now.. & i must say.. yamaha jus rocked man.. i beat pulsar 150 2008 model,new pulsar 180 2009 on a straight road of around 1 km.. i even covered up karizma’s single rider vs ma fz with a pillion rider one day… the maximum speed id reached was around 117-118 kmph which is sufficient for a 150cc bike guy.. i dun really care abt the average as i always keep on revving up ma baby but if i ride it very softly on an economic speed then it gives me around 42kmpl & if i ride as i always do like mostly around 70-80kmph & abuv.. it gived me average around 36kmpl…. even ma friends who have pulsars loves to ride ma bike. & they themselves admit dat yamaha really knw how to make bikes..:P.. & if u shift the gear in a proper rpm ratio like i do.. then ull definitely get a grunt out of that beautiful low-end torgue engine.. & cruising on this bike in a raining season is jus very pleasureful without much caring abt sl

I took a ride in Yamaha FZ good pick-up but bad ergonomics.. Sitting position @ bac seat sucks. Its pinful . Poor user Experience . Can si on bike more than 10 minutes. ur Ass will start paining, trust me. Poor suspension . When applied break person sitting back cant resist the momentum as the leg rest position could have been more at better position. Good bike if u r riding alone. Else ur GF will run away & sit on others Pulsar seat :D

Considering the price band, FZ16 should be compared with Pulsar 220 DTSI and not with much cheaper 150.
