High on style and power these scorchers will set the Indian roads on fire.

Yamaha FZ1

Yamaha FZ1 is a 1000cc sports bike and it is rightly called 'Brutal Beauty' because of its looks. The design is quite macho and aggressive. Its edge headlight with twin pilot lamps and tiny side indicators give it a very heavy look.

FZ1's black colour engine cover looks really cool. Its split seats and a masculine fuel tank gives it a sporty look.

Yamaha FZ1 is powered by a four cylinder, liquid-cooled 998cc engine. This engine gives out massive power of 148bhp at 11000rpm. Because of this, you can reach a speed of 100 km/hr in just 3.5 seconds.

There seems no limit to this bike as it can reach a top speed of 273.6 kmph. Its mileage is around 15 km/l in the long run. A bike with this kind of top speed certainly needs an efficient braking system and it is equipped with one.

The FZ1 will cost you around Rs 990,000.
