Yamaha Fazer 2520 – Full design revealed through new spy shots
A set of new spy shots surfaced on the Internet have completely revealed the 2017 Yamaha Fazer 250. The quarter-litre bike is expected to be launched in the country around the festive season of this year.
The new Yamaha Fazer 250 is essentially a faired version of the FZ25, which is already on sale in India. Launched earlier this year, the FZ25 has been attracting a satisfactory amount of interest from prospective customers. This is a big deal for Yamaha, especially since the FZ25 goes against the likes of the Bajaj Pulsar NS 200, the TVS Apache RTR 200 and the KTM Duke 200. As a result, the company is now planning to expand the FZ25’s appeal and target audience by introducing a faired sibling in the Indian market.
The fresh undisguised spy shots of the Fazer 250 reveal the bike without any disguise. According to these images, the new Fazer will come with a partial fairing which will include fuel tank extensions and lower fenders. However, the engine casing has been left open to aid cooling. The fairing also gets ‘Fazer 250’ badges, thus confirming the bike’s name.
The headlight design has been copied from the FZ25, though it is surrounded by an all-new cowl and a larger windscreen. The single headlamp assembly is surrounded by neatly integrated pilot lamps that will most likely feature the AHO lights. The fuel tank, seats, alloy wheels and the tail area are a straight lift from the FZ25.
Powering the Fazer 250 will be a 249 cc, single-cylinder, air-cooled engine that will be mated to a 5-speed gearbox. This is the same block that supplies 20 bhp and 20 Nm of torque under the FZ25. It is worth noting that the spotted Fazer 250 doesn’t have ABS. It will be sad if Yamaha misses this safety feature on the Fazer 250 as well, since the biggest grouse from the FZ25 is the lack of ABS.
Production of the Fazer 250 is expected to commence from August 2017. An official launch announcement is expected to be made in the following month.
