Yamaha Fazer 25 (FZ25 based) India launch price INR 1.28 lakh
Yamaha has launched the much awaited Fazer 25 in India. It is based on the FZ25.
At the time of launch of the new FZ25, Yamaha India had stated that the new engine will spawn onto newer models in the future. And by future, Yamaha India meant this year itself. Yes. The next bike to get the FZ25’s 250cc single cylinder engine is Fazer 25, which was officially launched in India today.
Yamaha Fazer 25 is based on the naked FZ25, which was launched earlier this year at a starting price of INR 1.2 lakh, ex-showroom. Based on this motorcycle, Yamaha India has launched Fazer 25, which will take on the likes of Bajaj Pulsar RS 200, Honda CBR250R, Mahindra Mojo, KTM RC 200, upcoming TVS Apache 310 and more.
In terms of design, new Fazer 25 is a more sporty looking bike with a muscular fairing in the front, split seats, LED taillights at the rear, alloy wheels, disc brakes, and wider tubeless tyres for extra grip, among other things.
To be available in dual tone colours, the loud fairing design is the highlight. The bike in the images has a matte red fairing with bits of black and gold on it. There is also the FAZER 25 lettering. In fact, there is enough hint of gold shade in the bike, which makes it fit to be a three tone colour scheme, rather than a dual tone. The headlight unit is underlined by strip of LEDs. The number plate is housed on the fairing, which also provides slot for rear view mirrors. The fairing also houses LED turn indicators on its sides.
Powering the new Yamaha Fazer 250 will be a 250cc single cylinder engine, the same engine, which powers FZ25 in India. This fuel injected, air-cooled engine is mated to a five speed gearbox, and delivers peak power of 20.9 PS / 8000 rpm, and a peak torque of 20 Nm at 6000 rpm.
Most of the parts remain same as seen on FZ25 (suspension, tyres, alloys, brakes, instrument cluster, etc). Just like FZ25, ABS is not on offer. Two colour options are on offer – Soulful Cyan and Rhythmic Red. Price starts from INR 1.28 lakh, ex-Mumbai and INR 1.29 lakh, ex-Delhi.
