    My friend bought his SZ-X couple of days ago, on-road (Chennai) is Rs.59,580/-, the same day I picked my FZ. I happened to do test ride on his bike, I should the quality of ride was amazing. I'm not sure if I'lll like the riding posture after using FZ, but the engine and ride quality were best to none. For 60k, I think this is the bes bike in terms of style, comfort, performance & mileage.

    I'm planning to do a small photoshoot of our bikes, I can probably post his SZ-X pictures here in a day or two. Anyone looking for budget-specific Yamaha bike but FZ isn't your choice, you should opt for SZ-X!

    Cheers

    Till now i have done 350 kms ..yes as you said there is a change in the smoothness.. i hope it will be good @ 1500 km both gear shifts & smoothness...

    DO i have to change oil @ 500 km ? because those service center person asked me to bring @ 1000 km or 25 days...

    I can change the oil tomorrow if its recommended.. please tell me how to clean the oil filter?

    @all

    Change the oil according to the manual & NOT according to what any xbhp member says or as any SC person says.

    ok madhav... will wait for 1000 kms as mentioned in the manual...


    Just crossed 500 km .. Smoothness & gear shift easeness is increased.. i can feel the differences ...!

    am just curious about mileage.. lets see how szx responses ...

    i have travelled some 160 km today with 60 - 40 kmph varying the speed constantly ... driving in that speed for that much distance will cause any effect in mileage during engine break in period ??

    congrats for your bike..

    it would have been better if they had it in stock.. well, i dont think there will be much adverse effect on your bike because of that.. it is just advised to change oil filter in first service as the engine was in a run in period.. however, make sure to change it in your next oil change.. good luck

    I am planning to get a new bike and my budget was 60k. I considered sz-x as one of my options but the following points made me to avoid this bike

    1) TVS tyres - This is the worst part of this bike. TVS tyres lets you down easily if you are not good in braking.

    2) It seems the front drum brakes are dumb. The stopping power from 70 - 0 is not good it seems so (read about this in some reviews of this bike)

    A 150cc (which can touch 70 - 80 easily) which cannot stop when you want it to stop that too with the TVS tyres there are lots of chances of getting into bad situations.

    No offence meant here. I am posting here just my opinions

    Bubbly'jee ,
    Base your buying decision on hands-on usage experience and not hearsay .

    1) I have driven on TVS and other tyres ( Indian ) and not found it inferior in any way . Infact my current mrf nylogrip has less grip on wet roads than my previous TVS tyre , while the nylogrip-c on my rx-135 is better .
    2) There is more difference in braking-distance between manufacturers than between drum and disc brakes . During heavy rains , I have not found front disc brakes to be any better . While I HAVE found that there is a great difference in braking between 110mm , 130mm , 150mm drums .
    I would say a rear 130mm and front 150mm drum brakes would be perfect
    for a bike of this size and weight . Even better if the rear was 150mm too .
    I like even braking on both wheels .
    Happy diwali .
