The FZ25 has garnered mixed responses, thanks in part to its rather simple-looking spec sheet. While it is upmarket in some ways, the FZ is surprisingly simple. The all-LED lights intend to dazzle the buyer with coolness. The FZ25 is powered by an air-cooled, 249cc, single-cylinder mill that makes 20.9PS of power and 20Nm of torque. Acceleration is punchy and the FZ25 is quick to get off the line thanks to the strong bottom end grunt. Fuel injection makes for a crisp throttle response and the FZ25 is quick to respond to inputs, which should help when slicing through traffic. On the whole, this is a likeable motorcycle, with its performance putting initial concerns of the FZ25 being a tad underpowered to rest. The handling package had a familiar feel, and in more ways than one, the FZ25 felt like its younger sibling. If you are looking for a 250cc naked motorcycle that’s not only good-looking and fun to ride but is also well-built and reliable, the Yamaha FZ25 should certainly be on your list.
After making its enthusiasts wait for a long time, Yamaha finally rode in a bigger displacement streetbike in the form of the new FZ25. The 250cc displacement motorcycle is the most powerful motorcycle to be built by the Japanese two-wheeler giant in India. The Yamaha FZ25 has been priced at Rs 1,19,500 ex-showroom Delhi. The styling of the bike is reminiscent of the FZ series but understandably has larger dimensions. The chiselled and muscular styling of the Yamaha FZ25 will entice the youngsters who are the target audience for the new motorcycle. It is also the first offering from Yamaha India to be equipped with LED headlight. Watch our first look video of the new Yamaha FZ25 for more details about the new 250cc bike.
