The BS6 iteration produces 0.8PS less power but 0.5Nm more torque. Since the RPM has been reduced by a margin, the performance should feel punchier than the last BS4 iteration.

Nevertheless, all Yamaha BS6 motorcycles have a slight reduction in power train figures.

Yamaha FZS v3.0 competes with Suzuki Gixxer 155, TVS Apache RTR 160 4V ABS, and Bajaj Pulsar 160 ABS.

Yamaha Nepal is at the unfortunate end of the recent two-wheeler tax hike. Add that with the already customary BS6 price hike, and it is a complete recipe for criticism.
