Yamaha SZ is the new 150cc motorcycles class line-up from Yamaha. Yamaha SZ 150 powered by 4-stroke, SOCH, single cylinder, and air cooled. As entry level bike, Yamaha created this bike with more extra power in the low to medium speed range, why? Yamaha said that it's perfect for Indian roads. Yamaha SZ is not global product from Yamaha, and i just found this bike at Yamaha India. Is Yamaha SZ will comes to Europe or US? well let see together.

Yamaha SZ seat, suspension, side cover : Comfortable riding with wide seat size.
Yamaha SZ instrument, speedometer, fuel display and you can see there is Eco-Zone(30-50km/h) speed range display !! great features !!
Yamaha SZ looks interesting for me, I know that Yamaha has another bike with 150cc and better features and better design, but you have to know that the prices of Yamaha SZ is cheaper than another 150cc bikes from Yamaha. If you looking for daily ride vehicle, Yamaha SZ is smart choice for you, it's simple, but comes with lot of features. There is no disc brakes, and no mono-shock suspension system, but still okay for me. There is another SZ series from Yamaha, it's Yamaha SZ-X, you can read here (Yamaha SZ-X). Good luck.
