The main reason for the Raider winning the race is its weight advantage. For a bike of 125 cc segment, Raider has some impressive power output figures. In the case of the FZ16, the power output figures for a bike of 150 cc segment is not all that great. It is rather average. However, the heavy body and wider tyres mean that the performance of the bike takes a hit. Also, with the upgrade to BS6, it has lost some power to keep the emissions in check.
