Very rarely do you see a bike like the Yamaha FZS get described as "macho," but all that notwithstanding, this one does come with sporty good looks and an eye-catching design. Put one and one together and you have a product that just speaks to you.

The first great design from the FZS comes from the lower naked part of the bike, particularly in the chain and engine, which have no covers. From there, you can take a good look at the bike’s Liquid Crystal Display (LCD) console, which comes with a plethora of high-tech features, including a digital speedometer, a tachometer, a trip meter, a fuel gauge, and other indicators. While the LCD dashboard is similar to what Yamaha FZ-16 has, one noticeable difference between the two is that the FZS looks a lot bigger, thanks in part to its front fairing. Moreover, the logo of Yamaha has been pasted on the airscoops while the bike logo is done the same on the tank.

Finally, the Yamaha FZS is powered by 150cc engine that produces in excess of 14 horsepower and 13.6 Nm (10 lb-ft) of torque.

The Yamaha Raptor 700R comes with boatloads of power, but its true appeal lies in the details, specifically all the elements that make this ATV quite a catch in its segment.

Aesthetically, the Raptor 700R is dressed to impress - and a whole lot more - with a new styling that pays true homage to the ATV’s menacing looks. Proudly assembled in the US, the Raptor 700R also has a hybrid steel aluminum frame and Controlled-Fill aluminum sub-frame and cast aluminum swing arm, all of which combine to produce a super strong structure to make the raptor 700R the lightest ATV in its class. Another bonus is a thick and comfortable seat provides great comfort to the rider, as does the adjustable suspension and the sport-tuned piggyback shocks that provide excellent ride-ability. Dual counterbalancers, electric starting, and reverse keep things nice and in order for the rider.

At the heart of the Raptor 700R is an engine that’s absolutely no joke, a 686cc engine that’s both light and strong, efficient and hard-hitting, quick-revving and performance enhancing. The engine can rev all the way to 9,000 rpm and, when combined with Yamaha’s very own YFI fuel injection system, is a powertrain that offers excellent engine performance in a wide range of conditions, elevations, and temperatures.

Then there’s the matter of handling, which the Raptor 700R draws from its YFZ inspired set-up. Thanks in large part to the ATV’s 9.1" of front travel and 10.1" out back, the state-of-the-art steel front section chassis with an aluminum rear section and detachable subframe, and the new twin piston rear brake caliper along with the twin aluminum-piston front disc brakes, combine to make sure the Raptor 700R is primed and ready for all kinds of action.

If you said that the Yamaha YZF R15 is the best looking bike in India, you wouldn’t be entirely wrong. Taken from the DNA of the global Yamaha YZF R1 series, the YZF R15 looks the part of a beast on two wheels. The front portion of the bike is exactly fully-covered while the rear portion continues to be naked.

The cowl on the bike looks stylish with two eyes serving the purpose of twin headlamps. Furthermore, the windscreen on the top of the cowl also looks impressive while the black rear view mirrors are accompanied by the large airscoops. A nice long shape and a sparking body color really catch our attention.

The bike’s design was also done to provide enough space for the rider and contribute a lot to the looks of the machine. The only visible part of the engine’s exterior can be seen from the side view while the other parts are covered in front fairing. Enough space for seating is left for one person. On the other hand, the nice rear grab bars are placed at the top of the rear portion.
