Yamaha Fazer 25 launched in India at Rs. 1.28 lakh
Yamaha India has launched the Fazer 25 in India at a price of Rs. 1.28 lakh (ex-showroom, Mumbai). Interestingly, the Fazer 25 will be available only in a single variant. With this launch, the new Yamaha bike will be competing against the likes of the KTM RC390, Bajaj Pulsar RS200 and the Honda CBR 250R.
The Fazer 25 is essentially a partially faired version of the Yamaha FZ25, which was launched in India last year. While the rear is a straight lift from the naked street fighter, the front get a new partial fairing, a headlamp surround cowl, a prominent windshield and new fuel tank extensions. Similarly, the side profile reveals a visually heavier look on the front half, thanks to the plastic fairing extending around the fuel tank area.
On the other hand, various elements have been carried forward from the FZ25 onto the Fazer 25 without any alterations. These include the single section LED headlamp, front and rear tyres, rear view mirrors, handlebars, fuel tank, instrument cluster, and exhaust setup.
Powering the 2017 Yamaha Fazer 25 is a 249 cc, single-cylinder, air-cooled engine that comes with electronic fuel injection (EFI). This block is capable of generating 20.6 bhp @ 8,600 rpm and 20 Nm of torque @ 6,000 rpm. Transmission duties are handled by a 5-speed gearbox, though there is no slipper clutch on offer.
Thanks to the additional fairing, the Fazer 25 is 6 kgs heavier than the FZ25 and thus tips the weighing scales at 154 kg. With its 14-litre fuel tank, the partially faired bike is capable of covering a range of around 600 km, thanks to its claimed mileage of 43 km/l.
