Popular Japanese motorcycle manufacturer Yamaha has a range of motorcycles in the country. One of the most popular motorcycle from the brand is the YZF R15 V3.0. It recently got the BS6 update along with the naked MT-15 and other automatic 125 cc scooters. Yamaha is now preparing to launch the BS6 version of the naked street motorcycle FZ-S 25 and the FZ25. Yamaha has recently released a teaser image that confirms the same. The Yamaha FZ25 competes with motorcycles like KTM Duke 250, Gixxer 250 and recently launched Bajaj Dominar 250 in the segment.
The FZ-S 25 and FZ25 is Yamaha’s first ever motorcycle in the 250-cc segment and was launched in the country couple of years ago. The 250-cc version of the motorcycle are based on the 150-cc FZ motorcycle that has been on sale in the country for quite some time. According to the teaser image released by Yamaha, the upcoming or soon to be launched FZ 25 and FZ-S 25 motorcycle will see a couple of changes in comparison to the outgoing BS4 version.
The changes start from the headlamp. Both FZ25 and FZ-S 25 will be getting a revised headlamp that looks a lot like the unit that we have seen in the MT-15 motorcycle. Apart from that pretty much everything looks same as before on the FZ 25. The FZ-S 25 which is more of a sportier iteration of the regular FZ has couple of more add ons. The FZ-S 25 gets a knuckle guard that is not seen on the regular FZ 25 and the colour of the alloy wheel is also different on both the motorcycles. The FZ-S 25 gets a golden colour alloys both at the front and the rear whereas the FZ 25 gets regular black colour alloy wheels.
The main update on both motorcycle however is the engine itself. Even though it is powered by the same engine, it is now tuned in a way to meet the new BS6 emission norms. The FZ25 and FZ-S 25 will be powered by a 249-cc, single cylinder, fuel injected, oil cooled engine that generates 20.4 Bhp and 20 Nm of peak torque. With all these cosmetic updates and the BS6 compliant engine, price for the FZ25 and FZ-S 25 is likely to go up. It is likely to go on sale once the nationwide lockdown due to Corona virus is lifted. The bike is one of the smoothest 250cc, sports commuter bikes on sale in the Indian market. High refinement and quality levels are its strengths.
