A new, lighter frame is said to be stiffer, with 4.5 mm thicker frame members providing increased ride stability at speed. Suspension on the Y16ZR is done with conventional telescopic forks that are 10 mm taller in front and a preload-adjustable mono shock at the back.
Inside the cockpit, an LCD panel displays all the necessary information, and a shift indicator is provided as well as tachometer and gear indicator. On the handlebar pods, the Y16ZR comes with a kill switch on the right and passing light on the left and a 12-Volt charging socket is located inside the front cowl.
Fuel capacity for the Y16ZR is now 5.4-litres, compared to the 4.2-litres of the Y15ZR. Weight is listed at 119 kg and seat height is set at 795 mm while LED lighting is used throughout.
