Over the past ten years, many different improvements have been made to the Yamaha FZ16. The motorcycle’s big front forks and broad back tyre enhance its honest support for all body types. The stock frame of this modified motorbike has a ribbed standard seat that more closely resembles the XSR series seat from the international Yamaha lineup. Every time the right lever is pulled, the frame slides, raising the bike’s rear end and giving the passenger a rough ride. The frame has an LED brake light strip that gives it a futuristic air and provides a respectable level of safety.
To get this clean engine look, the side panels from the FZ were removed. A custom panel bearing the name Madras Customs and having a dual tone finish completes the design beautifully. The gasoline tank appears to have been taken from a commuter, and the simple design language is further enhanced by the silver finish. For best traction, dual purpose tyres are used at both ends of the vehicle in place of the front headlamp portion. For this free flow black unit with a chrome external ring, the factory exhaust was removed. To shield other motorcyclists from the mudslide, the back fender is lifted.
The console and gasoline switch on the left side of the vehicle make the FZ Scrambler’s first generation model quite evident. The company converted to fuel injection and installed a regular screen with red lighting in place of the distinctive interface. There are 13.8 BHP and 13.6 Nm available from the 153cc engine. The original weight of this Scrambler by Madras Customs was 135 kg, yet it appears lot lighter in comparison. Only Yamaha has reduced power and torque for the second generation model in order to increase the motorcycle’s total mileage. However, the weight decrease of 3 kg made up for the diminished performance.
