The Yamaha FZ16, also called Yamaha Byson in Indonesia, is a standard motorcycle manufactured by Yamaha. Inspired by the naked bike concept,[citation needed] the FZ16 is modeled after its larger counterpart the FZ1 with a scaled down engine capacity.

In March 2009, Yamaha has also launched the FZ-S, a variant of the FZ16 with a front visor.[2] The FZ16 is also available in faired version called Fazer 160.

The FZ16 is primarily sold in India, and other markets such as Indonesia, Colombia and Argentina.

In June 2014, Yamaha introduced the fuel injected version of the FZ16, dubbed FZ FI (v2.0) in India. Its engine displacement lowered to 149 cc (9.09 cu in) from 153 cc (9.34 cu in), resulting in less power and torque from the carburetted version, but has lower fuel consumption.[3] The carburetted version still remained sold there.

Yamaha also launched the Byson FI in Indonesia in June 2015.[4] According to Yamaha, the bike has 91 different components from the one that sold in India.[5]

On 24th January 2017, Yamaha launched the FZ25, a 250cc motorcycle which is based on the FZ platform. It too uses an air-cooled, 2-valve, fuel-injected engine and is priced at Rs. 1.19 lakhs (ex-showroom, Delhi). Yamaha states that the FZ25 is aimed squarely at existing Yamaha owners and the bike is the torquiest in its segment. MotorBeam tested the FZ25 and found it to offer smooth performance with excellent engine refinement.[6]
