Here is what our experts feel about Fazer 25
The India Yamaha Motor company launched the Fazer 25 in the first half of 2017. It’s a 250cc variant of Yamaha’s popular FS series which has already proved to be a fine blend of everyday usability and performance. Conforming to the company’s tradition, a half-faired version of the bike was expected to follow. And it did. The vehicle retains the naming reserved for chopped-off semi-fairings. But the design is not exactly compliant to that philosophy. The Fazer 25, however, is the first Yamaha bike that carries the FZ branding but has a full fairing. It could be the company’s attempt to break tradition.
The Yamaha Fazer 25 not only satisfies speed freaks but also gives an adrenaline shot while touring and street driving. The vehicle, with a kerb weight of 148kg, looks a naked and full-faired bike with LED-positioned headlamp. Notwithstanding the increase in weight, the bike still manages to return 43kmpl in fuel efficiency and comes with a 14-litre petrol tank. It can approximately run 600km in a single fill.
The FZ25 has been lent a ‘Sports Tourer’ tag. The bike is available in two colour options: Rhythmic Red, and Soulful Cyan (Blue and Grey). Priced at ?1.29 lakhs (ex-showroom), the Fazer 25 is among the most economically priced fully-faired bikes in India. The Bajaj Pulsar NS200, Honda CBR 250R, Bajaj Dominar 400, Honda CB Hornet 160R, and the KTM 250 Duke are its closest competitors.
The styling of the Yamaha Fazer 25 may appear unattractive to fully-faired biking enthusiasts. The looks are unusual considering the handsome designs the company has always offered. Yamaha has tried to mould the front apron of the bike and the windscreen around the LED headlights. But it looks incomplete. The RZ25 has a mass-forward design when looked from the side. The twin-colour paint scheme is used well. The FZ25 gets extra LED DRLs on its fairing. The LED tail lamps on the rear are like its elder sibling. The fully digital instrument console is more than legible, with all basic readouts.
The Yamaha Fazer 25 is equipped with the same 249cc engine found in the FZ25. The fuel-4 injected motor produces 20.69bhp at 8000rpm with 20Nm torque at 6000rpm. A five-speed gearbox is paired to the engine. However, a six-speed gearbox would have lent more smoothness in running. The engine is both oil-cooled and air-cooled with a constant mesh gearbox having wet multi-disc clutch. The gearshift action has a tight feel, making it a tad difficult to reach neutral.
The braking duties are handled by a 282mm Bybre-powered front disc brakes and 220mm Nissan-powered disc brakes at the back. The front brake has adequate stopping power but lacks the feel and requires a big squeeze to forge a proper bite. The rear brake requires a big stomp to get any reaction. The Fazer 25, courtesy its added weight, covers a bigger distance before attaining 0kmph. On the handling side, the bike achieves 0-100kmph in less than 10 seconds, delivering a top speed of 140kmph. Like the FZ, the Fazer 25 quickly tips into corners but picks up soon to negotiate one turn into another. While driving on city roads, the additional weight of the bike is barely noticeable, with the short turning radius. The Fazer 25 riding position is like that of the FZ25, with a wide and relatively flat handlebar and rear-set footrests that offer a straight and comfortable posture for longer rides.
ABS is not available on the Fazer 25, not even as an option. The bike is fitted with 41mm forks in the front and mono-shock at the rear that are slightly on the stiffer side. The biker would feel the potholes and bumps while riding through. But that doesn’t upset the vehicle’s orientation. The 100/80 tyres in the front and 140/70 tyres at the back are just about average. The non-radial tyres add good on-road grip. There’s no feedback while leaning over and the tyres fine for everyday biking and occasional highway cruise. The split seats offer sufficient padding which makes long hours of riding a breeze. The pillion comfort is great with the big rear seat quite accommodative. The other ergonomics and mechanical components are solid. The fairing adds extra weight to the bike and that impacts the performance, albeit marginally.
