Yamaha has minutely updated the FZ 25 range with a few visual revisions and new colour options. Positioned above the 150cc FZS and FZX motorcycles, the new Yamaha FZS25 is now on sale with immediate effect across all the authorized dealer outlets in India.
Variants and Prices
The new Yamaha FZ 25 range now includes two models – FZ 25 and FZS 25. While the FZ 25 is priced at Rs 1,38,800, the new FZS 25 variant is priced at Rs 1,43,300, thus carrying a small premium of Rs 4,500 (all prices ex-showroom, India).
While there are no changes to the standard FZ 25, the new FZS 25 comes with a slew of changes. First, the variant now comes with golden alloy wheels, which the standard FZ 25 comes in a theme of black. The FZS 25 also comes with a long visor above the headlamp and handlebar crash guards, which make it look different from the standard version. The more premium variant now comes in two new colour options of Matte Copper and Matte Black. The standard FZ 25, meanwhile, continues to be offered in three colour options Metallic Black, Racing Blue and Monster Energy Yamaha MotoGP edition.
The new versions of the Yamaha FZ 25 range continue to have the same muscular design, with a front fascia comprising of an LED projector headlamp and daytime running LED above it. This front fascia was introduced in the previous update of the motorcycle. The muscular fuel tank with shrouds, split seats, engine cowl, split pillion grab rails, LED tail lamp and the fully-digital negative LCD instrument console too remains the same. The instrument console gets a speedometer, tachometer, odometer, trip meters, fuel gauge, clock and fuel consumption indicator.
The Yamaha FZ 25 range continues to get the four-stroke, single-cylinder, air-cooled, 249cc engine, which produces 20.8 PS of power and 20.1 Nm of torque, which is coupled to a 5-speed gearbox. Both the variants get the same suspension setup of 41mm hydraulic telescopic forks at the front and a 7-step adjustable mono-shock at the back. The motorcycle is equipped with 100/80-17 tyre and 282mm disc at the front and 140/70-17 tyre and 220mm disc at the back. The motorcycle is equipped with a dual-channel ABS as standard.
Like before, the new Yamaha FZ 25 range will compete with Bajaj Pulsar N250, Honda Hornet 2.0 and Suzuki Gixxer 250. It is also priced similar to the slightly more powerful and performance-oriented motorcycles like Bajaj Pulsar NS 200, TVS Apache RTR 200 4V and Yamaha’s MT-15.
