Japanese two-wheeler manufacturer Yamaha has been testing the Fazer 250 on the Indian roads for quite some time. Now, new images of the motorcycle have been posted on the internet and WhatsApp groups.
The new images reveal the production avatar of the quarter-litre Fazer. The fairing design on the Fazer 250 is based on the Fazer 650 and Fazer 1000 sold in the global markets.
The overall design of the fairing is muscular with new air intakes on either side of the headlight. But it appears to be only a cosmetic treatment and serves no functional purpose. Apart from that the motorcycle features split seats, LED tail light and wider tubeless tyres.
Apart from the fairing rest of the design elements in based on the recently launched FZ25. The spotted motorcycle is finished with matte red colour with bits of black and gold. The graphics are kept simple with Fazer 250 lettering.
The Fazer 250 will draw power from the existing 249cc fuel injected, air-cooled engine producing 20.9bhp and 20Nm of torque. The engine is mated to a 5-speed gearbox. The Fazer 250 might gain 10kg to 15kg of weight due to the fairing.
The Fazer 250 sports the same digital instrument cluster which is seen on the FZ25. And similar to its naked sibling, ABS is unlikely to be offered. But overall the motorcycle looks aggressive thanks to the new muscular fairing.
The Yamaha Fazer 250 will rival the likes of Honda CBR 250R, KTM RC 200, Bajaj Pulsar RS200 and the upcoming TVS Apache RR 310S. Expect the motorcycle to carry a price tag of around 1.4 lakh to 1.5 lakh. Yamaha is likely to launch the Fazer 250 in the coming months.
