Yamaha FZ25 250cc FZ is available in India at a starting price of INR 1,19,335 (ex-showroom Delhi). The motorcycle shares some of the components with second generation of fuel injected, 149 cc FZ series while most of the visual parts are all new on the FZ25. It is available in Warrior White, Knight Black and Ballistic Blue shades presently. Here are 7 quick reasons why you should buy Yamaha FZ25:
(1) Solid Build Quality
Yamaha motorcycles are known for their excellent built quality and FZ25 would be no different in those terms. It uses premium parts like 41 mm front forks, wider tyres and first in class features like instantaneous fuel efficiency and LED headlight. Apart from that, the after sales service and part availability has never been an issue with the company. The charm created by the first ever FZ could be repeated through the quarter liter machine.
(2) High on Torque
The 249cc, fuel injected and oil cooled motor is good for 20 Nm of torque at just 6000 rpm. This makes it better for everyday riding as no other bike around the price tag of INR 1.20 lakh has such magic in its engine.
Others like Apache RTR 200, Pulsar RS200 and KTM 200 Duke deliver their maximum torque at around 7000-8000 rpm while even then the torque output value is lower as compared to the FZ25. It’s not built for top speed as the core belief of the engine is crisp acceleration and powerful drive.
(3) Full LED Headlight
The first in class, full LED headlight offers better illumination and lesser power usage than a conventional bulb. The three part headlight also features auto-on function. LED headlights offer more visibility in every driving condition and the front fascia of the FZ25 looks pretty aggressive from the side angle. However, it is more inspired from the facial expressions of MT series bikes than the FZ series. The tail even says the same story.
(4) Lightweight & Excellent Mileage
Yamaha FZ25 weighs just 148 kg and that too with a fuel tank that has 14 liters of capacity. Other bikes that carry a quarter liter engine mostly weight between 155-165 kg in the Indian market. This helps in delivering the excellent 43 kmpl of Yamaha claimed mileage.
The tank extensions are aerodynamic and the overall design facilitates a powerful presence. Yamaha’s Blue Core technology helps in keeping performance high and expenses low.
The instrument console on the motorcycle is crystal clear and offers single screen that holds the tachometer, speedometer, odometer, two trip-meters and values like average as well as instantaneous fuel efficiency. The fuel gauge is even digital on the FZ25. The portion that is finished in Gloss Black holds the LED indicator lights for other functions on the motorcycle.
(6) Looks & Style
Undoubtedly, this section will have different views from different users. The fuel tank section of the motorcycle is massive and carries all new extensions that are much sharper than former FZ models. Headlight and taillight design is highly inspired from the MT series. Shades have been perfectly distributed on the body parts as few elements are finished in Matt Black while others include body specific colors like Blue, White and Gloss Black.
(7) Value for Money
When considering a price tag of INR 1,19,335 in India, it cannot be said that it falls in the easy to buy segment for average buyers. Still, no other manufacturer offers a 249cc, fuel injected engine on this price bracket and that too with LED lights and such premium finish.
The nearest quarter liter machine is Honda CBR250R (INR 1.64 lakh) while the closest in terms of competition is Benelli TNT 25 (INR 1.84 lakh) and KTM Duke 250 @ INR 1.78 Lakh.
