The new FZ 25 stands on a new diamond type frame with a sporty seating position and shorter handlebar, as against the FZ. The rider hip position is also 30 mm forward, while the ride height of the bike is at 160 mm. The looks are convincingly muscular and charming, with sharper-looking headlamp, matte-black front fender and side panels, split seats, and a uni-directional, beefy exhaust pipe. Light-weight construction means that the bike is just over 148 kgs.
Powered by a 249 cc single-cylinder fuel-injected, oil-cooler engine, the FZ 25 makes 20.9 PS power at 8,000 rpm and 20 Nm of torque at peak 6,000 rpm. The engine with the brand’s ‘Blue-core technology’ is paired to a 5-speed gearbox. Featuring telescopic suspension up front and a mono-shock rear suspension, the new bike comes with 282 mm front and 220 mm rear disc brakes.
Other features in the new FZ 25 includes an all-digital LCD instrumentation cluster, and LED-powered headlamp and tail lamp. Yamaha is targeting the competitive sport commuter segment, which is witnessing numerous new product launches in the recent times. The FZ 25 will take on the likes of the new 2017 KTM Duke 200, Bajaj Pulsar NS 200, Honda CBR250R, Suzuki Gixxer 250, and the TVS Apache RTR 200 4V.
