With the triple macho concept projecting the Muscular silhouette, muscular body parts and muscular chassis, FZ 16 bike boasts of a 153cc air-cooled, 4-stroke, single-cylinder high torque engine for active & aggressive city riding. A negative pressure type Φ26mm carburetor with Throttle Position Sensor (TPS) contributes to outstanding engine response on the FZ16. The placement of this model's 'MidShip Muffler' is toward the center of the machine to achieve good concentration of mass, exhaust efficiency and handling. While 5-speed transmission provides a smooth operational touch, the gear ratios are set to provide optimum performance and agility in city riding.
A monocross suspension ensures agile running performance and handling. At the same time it inhibits machine bottoming while riding with a tandem passenger and provides a very comfortable ride, as claimed by the company. The front suspension is 41 mm thick, besides good absorption of shocks from the road; this suspension also provides good damping characteristics during acceleration and braking.
FZ 16 also has India's first '140/60-17' size rear radial with a 60 per cent aspect ratio contributes to better grip and handling stability. To achieve sufficient cooling effect, the cylinder head on the FZ16 engine is designed with especially large fins as well as a shroud (air intake cowl) to effectively direct airflow to the engine.
