Yamaha Fazer 25 – Everything you need to know!
Yamaha India is a bike maker who hasn’t been delivering any best selling bikes in the Indian market, but is still sustaining the competition through the limited number of products on offer in its portfolio. The company had introduced a quarter-litre naked motorcycle named the Yamaha FZ25 last year and has received satisfactory response for the same. The Japanese bike maker has now brought in a partially faired version of the bike – the 2017 Yamaha Fazer 25.
Built on the same diamond frame chassis that is used under the FZ25, the Fazer 25 is around 6 kg heavier than the naked. However, power outputs haven’t been fiddled with. As a result, it continues to be powered by a 249 cc, single-cylinder engine rated at 20.6 bhp and 20 Nm. The said engine comes coupled with a 5-speed gearbox.
The overall design of the bike gives it a sports tourer-like appeal. The front gets a single LED headlamp, a prominent headlight cowl, and a lengthened windshield. The side profile reveals heavy fairing around the front fender and fuel tank. However, the seat area, fuel tank and rear section is a straight lift from the FZ25, so is the digital instrument cluster, handlebars, and rear mirrors.
Yamaha Fazer 25 Price in India
Yamaha has introduced the Fazer 25 in a single variant. There are no plans of introducing other variants in the lineup in the near future. The Fazer 25 price in India is pegged at Rs. 1.29 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi).
|Ex-showroom, Delhi||Rs. 1.29 lakh|
|Ex-showroom, Mumbai||Rs. 1.28 lakh|
Yamaha Fazer 25 mileage
Yamaha claims that the new Fazer 25 can deliver a fuel economy of 43 km/l in standard conditions. However, for day to day usage, we expect the faired motorcycle to extract around 35 km/l in the city and around 40 km/l on the highways.
|Official (ARAI certified)||43 km/l|
Yamaha Fazer 25 suspension and brakes
Suspension setup on offer with the Yamaha Fazer 25 includes 41mm telescopic forks at the front and a monoshock at the rear. There are no preload adjustments on offer on either of the suspension components.
Meanwhile, the braking duties are handled by 282 mm disc at the front and 220 mm disc at the rear. However, Yamaha isn’t offering anti-lock braking system (ABS) on the Fazer 25, not even as an option. This makes it an inferior package in the safety department, especially against competitors like the Yamaha YZF-R3 and KTM RC390.
Yamaha Fazer 250 Design
The fully faired commuter bike shares its diamond frame chassis with the naked Fazer 25.It gets a sportier look due to the fairing. There is also an increase in the kerb weight by 4-5 kg due to this extra flairing. It would come with a telescopic fork front suspension and monoshock rear suspension. The brake system would include hydraulic single disc brakes and the bike could also get an ABS system. It would have an LCD instrument cluster with speedometer precision. The F250 would include LED infused dual front headlamps and rear lamps with LED units.
