Yamaha SZ-RR Overview
The RR usually is used for Racing Replica, it's a misnomer here as this 150 commuter from Yamaha does not actually have racing pedigree. However, it is a great entry in the executive commuter segment. The build quality, fit and finish is good. The engine is smooth and the gearbox works seamlessly with it. It is an ideal choice for somebody upgrading from a 100-125cc commuter segment to something more beefier and stylish. The version 2.0 of the SZ-RR does not get a fuel injection, but comes with Blue Core.
Yamaha SZ-RR Engine & Transmission
The 153cc engine is good enough to push out 12bhp of power and 12.8Nm of peak torque. These numbers might not look too impressive, but this a bigger commuter than a tiny sports bike. The transmission has 5 speeds with a smooth shift and works effortlessly in and around the city. The power is adequate and the gearbox makes the best out of it.
Yamaha SZ-RR Mileage
The Yamaha SZ returns around 55kmpl in a combined urban and highway cycle. Good enough and very much on par, if not a little better, with the competition. Almost every bike with a 150cc engine is a competition and depending on your budget there are a lot of options against the RR. Since fuel injection did not make it to the Version 2.0, efficiency stays the same for both the models.
Yamaha SZ-RR Performance and Handling
The SZ-RR pulls cleanly without any jerks, and rides true and straight. Since it is a Yamaha, everything is smooth and the corners are taken with stability. Even with two people riding, it is capable of cruising at decent speeds throughout the day. The chassis keeps it stable and quite maneuverable through tight bends.
