Yamaha Fazer 25 Overview
Yamaha has launched the Fazer 25 or calls it Fazer 250, a bike that will not only satisfy speed freaks but also give an adrenaline rush through touring and street. This new Fazer has the looks of both a naked and a fully-faired motorcycle with a LED-positioned headlamp. The Fazer 25 has been given the tag of a Sports Tourer and is available in two colours: Soulful Cyan (Grey and Blue) and Rhythmic Red. At an ex-showroom price of Rs. 1.28 L (Mumbai), it is the most affordable fully-faired motorcycle in the country.
Yamaha Fazer 25 Engine & Transmission
The Fazer 25 comes with the same engine as the FZ-25, carrying a 249 cc, fuel-4injected engine producing 20.69 bhp of power at 8000 rpm and 20 Nm of torque at 6000 rpm. The engine comes mated to a 5-speed gearbox; however, a 6-speed gearbox would have been preferred for that extra bit of smoothness. The engine is both air and oil cooled, and the gear box type is a constant mesh with a multi-disc wet clutch. There has been a hike in the weight, which makes the bike now stand at 154 kg.
Yamaha Fazer 25 Mileage
Despite the increase in weight, the efficiency is still at 43 kmpl with a fuel tank capacity of 14 L, which gives a range of over 600 km. The sad part is that we miss the ABS on this whereas the competition Pulsar RS200 comes with a single channel ABS. The LCD screen is the same as the FZ-25, also displaying real-time fuel efficiency. The looks of the bike make it stand out but Yamaha claims that this has to do more with function than just the form.
Yamaha Fazer 25 Performance and Handling
The Yamaha FZ-25 had a 0-100 kmph time of under 10 seconds and a top speed of 140 kmph, and since the Fazer 25 is based on a similar platform with the same engine, it should have the same speed and acceleration figures. The braking duties are taken care of by a 282 mm hydraulic disc up front and a 220 mm hydraulic disc for the rear, and if you love weekend touring, there is no good match to this new Fazer 25.
