Japanese two-wheeler manufacturer Yamaha is all set to introduce the new Fazer 250 in India. The automaker has sent an invite for an event on August 21, 2017, which is likely to be the launch of the fully-faired quarter-litre motorcycle.
The event is said to be the unfolding of a new chapter in Yamaha's journey in India. Yamaha has not revealed any information regarding the Fazer 250, but it is likely to be a launch event.
The Fazer 250 has been spotted several times, and the motorcycle was fully revealed in the latest spy images. The motorcycle is based on its naked sibling, the FZ25.
The fully-faired quarter-litre motorcycle features muscular fairing, LED head lamp, LED DRLs, split seats and wide tubeless tyres. The digital instrument cluster, suspension and frame are identical to the FZ25.
The Fazer 250 draws power from the existing 249cc air-cooled, fuel injected engine producing 20.6bhp and 20Nm of torque. The engine is coupled to a 5-speed gearbox. The motorcycle is likely to gain 10kg to 15kg with the addition of fairing.
Similar to the FZ25, the Fazer 250 is unlikely to get ABS. The rest of the design elements are similar to the naked motorcycle. The fully-faired avatar of the FZ25 is expected to carry a price tag of around Rs 1.3 lakh ex-showroom (Delhi).
Yamaha is relaunching the Fazer in India, but with a full fairing and quarter-litre engine. The motorcycle gets an all-new design and will rival the likes of Honda CBR 250R, KTM RC200, Bajaj Pulsar RS200 and the yet to be launched TVS Apache RR 310S.
