Yamaha Fazer 250 sold internationally for representation purpose
Yamaha Fazer 25 or the 2017 Fazer 250 has been spied without camouflage in India for the first time. The upcoming motorcycle will be powered by a 249 cc single cylinder, oil-cooled, fuel-injected engine that will produce 20.9 hp of power at 8,000 rpm and 20 Nm of peak torque at 6,000 rpm.
The unit will comply with BSIV emission norms and will be paired to a 5-speed constant mesh manual transmission. It seems that the manufacturer will not offer the ABS (Anti-lock Braking System), but we expect the production model to get ABS as optional. The Yamaha Fazer 25 will weigh around 148 kg.
The Fazer 25 will share design cues with the FZ25 and as per the images, the semi-faired motorcycle will get a diamond-type frame, LED headlamp with AHO (Automatic Headlamp On) unit, LED tail lamp, LCD instrument cluster, split seats, exhaust with a silver finish as well as front and rear disc brakes. The two-wheeler maker will also equip the Fazer 25 with a telescopic fork at the front and a rear monoshock suspension with adjustable preload. The handlebars are upright and will offer a better riding position and comfort.
The images also suggest that the upcoming Yamaha Fazer 25 is close to its production stage and is expected to be priced higher than the current Yamaha FZ25 in the country by around Rs 1.5 lakh and Rs 2 lakh, ex-showroom. The motorcycle is likely to be launched by the middle of this year and will compete with the likes of the Honda CBR250R and KTM 200 Duke in the quarter-litre segment. Once launched, it is expected that the two-wheeler manufacturer will export the Fazer 25 to international markets. It is still not clear whether the company will name the upcoming motorcycle as the Fazer 25 or the Fazer 250 and the same will be announced only during the time of its launch.
