    Hmm.. that is disappointing. But i guess you cant have everything!!! And worst case, will I be able to replace them with better ones? ( I dont even know whether we have such wide rims in the market )

    Yeah.. I think i was getting a bit nervous . Now that u mention fazer, I dont think anything has changed other than the looks ? I did like the looks but from some angles the front fairing looks awkward.. Doesnt seem to jell well with the rest of the bike. But then again its my opinion.

    Default Overall - no problemo, but no to anti theft system

    1. Has anyone faced any problems yet in FZ for not having a kick start ? If I install an anti-theft device will it impair battery performance ?

    No problems so far, but dude, do not install the anti theft system. not a smart thing to do. but then again the service centre guy or any local mechanic would be able to give you a better advice.
    Cheers,

    Thumbs up Finally bought it!

    Hey Guys!

    Sorry for being inactive for such a long time! Finally bought my FZ16 black last week. Thanks to all you guys for helping me take that decision! I have some things to discuss which I guess will be more appropriate to have in the ownership thread.

    Thanks again guys!

    @Leodanin or @All - Any idea why Anti-theft is not recommended? I am planning to install one on my CL350, any disadvantages in it?

    Well, there isnt much of an issue with an anti theft!

    However, at times these devices go kaput at extremely low temperatures or in Rain. Not a very often case but this would be the last thing one wants to face at a very unfriendly altitude or place.

    However, while installation, make sure the guy does not tamper the stock wiring and you ask him the quickest and the easiest way of uninstalling the device. You never know when you may need to uninstall it!

    Default Best buy ever.

    I would reccomend FZ16 to anyone who uses it mostly for city purposes. It's low and middle grunt makes it perfect for the streets (and its not named lord of the streets for nothing!). If you are a tourer, i wouln't completly reccomend it. It sucks with a pillion on the highway. But, if your going solo, its good. If your not a power freak and you would like a bike with medium power, good looks and awsome handling, THIS IS THE STUFF.

    If you dont mind the looks and the brand value, go for Apache. Its a very nice bike and all. But according to me, it lacks class.
    It's not what you ride, it's your attitude that counts.
