Yamaha's seems all geared to introduce the all-new Fazer 250 that has been spotted testing multiple times in the country. The faired version of the FZ25 has now again been spotted in a video that clearly shows its design, instrument cluster and other features that will be equipped on the new Fazer 250. Going by the latest video, the Yamaha Fazer 250 will be available with the same Ballistic Blue body colour seen on the FZ25 along with new colour options. One of the striking things about the design is the way the turn signals are linked to the headlamp and the fairing. In the video, the fairing seems to be made up of three parts, which should lead to easier maintenance and lower replacement cost in case of a crash. Some of the design cues that the Yamaha Fazer 250 will share with the FZ25 include the tail lamp, handlebar, switchgear, rear tyre hugger, saree guard and the instrument cluster with fuel, clock, speedometer and fuel consumption display. The motorcycle will also get features such as LED headlamp with LED pilot lamps and air-intakes on each side of the fairing. As seen in the video, the Fazer 250 will get split seats, alloy wheels and an aluminium-finished exhaust shield.
The new Fazer 250 will be based on the FZ25's diamond frame chassis and will be powered by the FZ25's 249cc fuel-injected single cylinder, air-cooled, four-stroke engine. The engine develops 20.6 hp of maximum power at 8,000 rpm and 20 Nm of peak torque at 6,000 rpm and will be mated to a five-speed gearbox. The front and rear wheels will get a single hydraulic disc brake and telescopic fork up front and a monocross swingarm at the rear end.

Similar to the Yamaha FZ25, the Fazer 250 might miss out on ABS (Antilock Braking System) as standard fitment but the company might offer it as an option as most of its competitors are equipped with ABS. Other details of the new Yamaha Fazer 250 includes a seat height of 795 mm, fuel tank capacity of 14 litres and a ground clearance of 160 mm.
With the addition of fairing on the Fazer 250, it is expected that the weight of the motorcycle will be more than the FZ25 by around 10 kg. When launched, the upcoming Fazer 250 will compete with the likes of the Bajaj Pulsar 220, Kawasaki Z250 and the KTM 250 Duke. It is expected to be priced around Rs 1.35 lakh, ex-showroom.
