Rule The Road Rule the Highway
Yamaha FZ16 has got the best pickup in the 150CC category. The power increases in a smooth fashion as the power is distributed in the lower and mid torque range. It does not have the raw power like that of pulsar or Apache to give jerks or jolts of acceleration as mentioned by Amod. This bike too handles superbly due to large handlebar which makes it more flickable in the traffic and monoshock adds to better cornering and leaning ability. For the city riding it is the best bike. It is not suitable for highway due to very low top end performance and uncomfortable ride.
Suzuki GS150R is typical Unicorn with some extra weight. The engine seems to be very smooth but less than unicorn. It feels heavy at lower speeds and yes there are no vibrations at a speed of 80kmph but the engine sound began to change. The engine is not as refined as Unicorn but has digital instrumentation and gear change
indicator. The instrument panels looks very good. It does’nt have a monoshock but handles the potholes easily. The initial pickup is more than unicorn and less than FZ16. While turning the bike it feels slighty heavy and the leaning angle is less due to the absence of monoshock. The comfort level is really good due to broader seat. The gear shifting is smooth.
