Back in May 2009 we discovered the Yamaha FZ16 at Motorpasión Moto, and at that time we were wondering how long it would take to see motorcycles of this type in our country. Almost three years later, in the midst of the current economic situation, I have rediscovered through a promotional video of Yamaha Motor Indonesia This little bike with the look of a giant killer that seems to be selling quite well in the other half of the world.

Underneath its plastics a motor hides 153 cc single cylinder that gives 13.7 hp at 7,500 rpm and 13.6 Nm at 6,000 rpm. Modest features, but more than enough for what is intended with a motorcycle this utilitarian, which does not have to be ugly, or badly finished. We have already seen the China Mash Seventy 125 cc option imported in France, and today I wonder again why these bikes do not come to Europe now that the market is as it is. If we continue with gasoline prices rising every moment, with less and less money in our pockets, a motorcycle like that for 1,700 euros (to change) would be great. How do brands expect us to spend nine, ten or twelve thousand euros to buy a motorcycle from the upper-middle range of their catalog?
