The motorcycle has been spied multiple times in the past couple of months, suggesting the launch is just around the corner. The new Yamaha Fazer 250 has been once again spotted without camouflage in India by Rushlane.com. The images show that the upcoming motorcycle will get dual tone shades, full-fairing and will share most of its components and design with the FZ25. The Fazer 250 will be powered by the FZ25's 249cc fuel-injected single cylinder, air-cooled, four-stroke engine. This unit generates 20.6 hp of power at 8,000 rpm and 20 Nm of peak torque at 6,000 rpm and will be paired to a five-speed gearbox.The Yamaha Fazer 250 will use the diamond frame chassis, on which the FS25 is also based.

The motorcycle will get a hydraulic single disc brake at both ends as well as telescopic fork up front and monocross swing-arm with adjustable preload at the rear. The upcoming Yamaha Fazer 250 will also feature LED headlamp and tail lamp, and digital instrumentation with fuel, clock, speedometer and fuel consumption display.

The two-wheeler manufacturer will also equip the Fazer 250 with split seats, alloy wheels, silver inserts on the exhaust and a single-piece handlebar. The safety features will consist of an optional ABS (Anti-lock Braking System) as most of its competitors are equipped with ABS. With the addition of fairing, it is expected the overall weight of the Fazer 250 will be more than the FZ25 by about 10 - 15 kilograms.

 

The new Yamaha Fazer 250 will be positioned in the premium segment in the company's model line-up. It will compete with the likes of the Bajaj Pulsar 220, Kawasaki Z250 and the KTM 250 Duke. The company will price the motorcycle slightly higher than the FZ25 at around Rs 1.30 lakh, ex-showroom.
