India Yamaha Motor is currently testing the Fazer 250, a semi-faired version of the FZ25, which was launched in the country in February 2017. The new Yamaha Fazer 250 will be powered by the FZ-25’s engine, a 249 cc single-cylinder, air-cooled unit that creates a maximum power of 20.6-hp at 8,000-rpm and churns out a highest torque of 20-Nm at 6,000-rpm. The engine is paired to a 5-speed transmission. The upcoming Fazer-250 will take design cues from its naked sibling and will be equipped with a twin LED headlights as well as split LED tail lamp. The Yamaha FZ-25 doesn’t get Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) even as an option, however, considering the upcoming legislations set to make ABS compulsory, Yamaha might offer ABS as standard on the Fazer 250.

With the addition of the fairing on the Fazer-250, it can be located as a tourer motorbike. The two-wheeler creator will also offer the new Yamaha Fazer-250 with a monoshock back suspension, all-digital instrument console, dual disc brakes and Automatic Headlamp on (AHO) function, all of which will be shared with the FZ25. Yamaha already sells the Fazer-250 in global markets and when launched in India, the company might re-badge the motorcycle to FZ-250. The new Yamaha Fazer-250 is expected to be priced higher than the FZ-25 and is expected to be launched at around Rs.1.30 lakh, ex-showroom. The forthcoming motorbike is expected to be launched in the country around June, 2017.
