Yamaha today rolled out its second model in the quatter-litre segment, Yamaha FZ 25. The naked bike carries sticker price of Rs 1.19 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi) and can be pre-booked for a token amount of Rs 10,000. In the quarter-litre segment, it joins the YZF-R3 from Yamaha and goes up against some credible models in this space. Bike enthusiast and popular Bollywood actor John Abraham was also present at the launch event. John is known for owing a range of highly acclaimed motorcycles including few models from Yamaha. Now that the naked bike is available for retail, here are some interesting facts about the motorcycle.
Styled aggressively, the Yamaha FZ 25 shares design cues with FZ version 2.0 and M-Slaz. It gets compact fairing in front and equips full-LED headlamps for an assertive look.
Built on the diamond-type frame, the bike sports street bike elements like the upright riding position, small rear foot pegs and single piece handlebar.
Features on the new Yamaha FZ 25 include LED headlamp, compact front fairing, sculpted fuel tank, LED tail-lamp, split seats, stubby exhaust covered with silver-finished plastic casing and LED instrument cluster with speedometer.
The naked streetfighter is available with three colour options-Knight Black, Ballistic Blue and Warrior White.
Power on the Yamaha FZ 25 comes from the 249cc, 4-stroke, oil-cooled SOHC, fuel injected engine borrowed from the Brazilian-spec Fazer 250. Complied with BSIV emission standards, the 249cc engine uses a 5-speed gearbox for transmitting power.
Suspension set up comprises 41mm telescopic forks at front and monoshock absorbers at rear. Stopping power on the naked streetfighter comes from the 280mm units in front and 220mm rear disc brakes.
In the naked streetfighter segment, this new entry-level performance bike will face competition from rivals including KTM Duke 200 and Honda CBR 250R.
