The new Yamaha Fazer25 is equipped with same 250cc oil cooled single cylinder engine, churning out 21 Ps of power output at 8000 Rpm and 20.5 Nm or torque at 6000 Rpm. Similar to the power mill the new Fazer25 is featured with same brakes as its naked sibling, the front is equipped with 282mm single disc brake whereas the rear has got 220mm single disc brake setup. The new Fazer 25 is also suspended on the same setup- the front telescopic suspension and rear adjustable monoshock.
The additional front fairing at the new Yamaha Fazer25 adds few kgs more to the bike as compared to the FZ25 but the aerodynamic advantage it provides to the rider makes it a worthy contender for those who are looking for a budget tourer. Tall single handlebar and the fairing mounted large windscreen adds to the persona of touring motorcycle, however it will only be determined after a through test ride whether it is going to be true to its name.
The bike comes in two dual tone color options, Soulful Cyan and Rhythmic Red opposite to its streetfighter naked sibling- FZ25. Yamaha has priced the new Fazer25 at INR 1.28 Lakhs (Ex- Showroom, India).
