The Yamaha FZ16 launch in 2008 was a game changer in the Indian motorcycle industry . It proved what a 150 cc bike can offer in a segment that was quite stale with the likes of only the Pulsar 150 ruling it. The FZ 16 had a powerful engine, superior handling and more importantly, class-redefining style. In the year 2014, the v2.0 of the FZ 16, the FZ-S Fi was launched. It was born with the strength of the original bike and was powered by a massively refined fuel-injected 149cc engine. The engine pumps out 13.2hp of peak power and 12.8Nm of peak torque.This is marginally less than that of the FZ16. However, the bike makes up with a lighter kerb weight of 132kg. The Yamaha FZ-S Fi is quick and agile. The bike has a good road presence and is completely worth it’s cost.

This is the second Bajaj bike on our list of top 5 bikes in India under 1 lakh. This bike might come as a surprise to many, but believe us, the list would have been incomplete without the Pulsar 200 NS. Bajaj Auto is very good at manufacturing bikes that offer phenomenal value for money. The Pulsar 200NS is a great example of this. The bike was discontinued for a while. But now the 200NS has been brought back as a BS-IV model. It is powered by the same single-cylinder,199.5cc, liquid-cooled engine which is derived from the KTM 200 Duke. The difference between the KTM and the Pulsar engine is that the Pulsar’s motor is fed through a carburetor. The Pulsar 200 NS features Bajaj’s patented triple-sparkplug technology which makes the bike very fuel efficient. However, it is slightly low on power when compared to the KTM. The Pulsar 200 has a superior acceleration. It has great handling which makes it more fun to ride in almost all conditions. Be it in the city, highway or a twisty mountain road. The Pulsar offers a great mix of power and performance. It would be almost impossible for any sub 200 cc motorcycle to beat the Pulsar 200 NS in terms of performance.
Power: 23.5hp at 9,500rpm
Torque: 18.3Nm at 8,000rpm
Price: Rs 96,749 (ex-showroom Delhi)
