Yamaha Fazer 250 rendering based on the new FZ25
Based on the new FZ25, Yamaha India will be launching Fazer 250. Here is a digital rendering.
Yamaha India launched their most powerful made-in-India motorcycle last month in the form of new FZ25. This new motorcycle is powered by a 250 cc single cylinder SOHC FI engine that generates 20.9 PS power at 8,000 rpm and 20 Nm torque at 6,000 rpm.
When asked whether this engine will be used to power any more models from Yamaha, the company stated that the next logical step is to launch a Fazer 250. Yes. Yamaha India has confirmed that the Fazer 250 is on its way. Sadly, they did not reveal launch timeline. Based on this info, a new rendering of the Fazer 250 has been digitally created.
The render of Fazer 250 created by Shoeb Kalania, continues with the same front semi-fairing design. Tank designed is new, same as that of FZ25 while seats too are of FZ25. To give it a more of a touring stance, the render comes with accessories like luggage kit and more convenient pillion grab rails.

Speaking about the existing Fazer series, India Yamaha Motor discontinued carbureted versions of Fazer and the FZ-S from their line-up last year. The reason both have been discontinued is to make way for newer and more updated products. Yamaha India had played a similar move by discontinuing SZ-S, YBR 125, YBR 110, SZ-RR, and SS 125.
Both Yamaha Fazer and its semi-faired version, FZ-S were powered by the same 153 cc engine. This carbureted engine was capable of generating 14 PS power and 13.6 Nm of torque via a five-speed gearbox. The price of these bikes ranged from INR 75-80,000, ex-showroom.
Another reason for the discontinuation of these bikes was declining sales. Ever since Yamaha India launched the FI versions of both Fazer and FZ-S, sales of the carbureted versions started to decline. This was because FI versions were not only more efficient they also had a much more responsive system thanks to Yamaha’s new Blue Core technology.
Surprisingly, the old Yamaha FZ with carbureted engine is still on sale. The reason being it is the most affordable in the FZ series and continues to bring in a reasonable number of sales each month.
This means Yamaha Saluto and Yamaha FZ are the only motorcycles in company line-up which are not available with FI. Yamaha India domestic motorcycle line-up includes – R3, R15 V2, R15 S, Fazer FI, FZ-S FI, FZ-FI, FZ, FZ25, SZ-RR V2, and Saluto.
