Yamaha India today announced the launch of the 2022 Yamaha FZS 250. The 2022 variant will be available in all-new Matte Copper and Matte Black colors, while the FZ 25 variant will continue to be sold in Racing Blue and Metallic Black colors. Yamaha FZS 25 2022 is priced at Rs. 1,38,800 (Ex-showroom, Delhi). This is just a cosmetic change and on the mechanical side, it remains the same.
Mr. Eishin Chihana, Chairman, Yamaha Motor India group of companies said,” Since its launch, the FZ 25 model range has gained immense popularity in the premium segment, as it offers the perfect balance of urban commuting and touring. In line with Yamaha’s commitment to consistently excite its customers, we have launched the new color schemes for the FZS 25 model variant, to further build on its popularity. Going forward, under ‘The Call of the Blue’ brand strategy, the company will continue to offer more excitement to its target audience as a part of its commitment in India.”
In terms of performance, motorcycles continue to be powered by the same 249cc, single-cylinder, fuel-injected engine which has been updated to meet the upcoming BS6 emission norms. It generates a maximum power of 20.8PS at 8,000rpm and a peak torque of 20.1 Nm at 6,000rpm. The power and torque figures are exactly the same as their BS4 counterparts while the engine remains mated to a 5-speed transmission. The bikes continue to be equipped with telescopic forks at the front and a mono-shock absorber at the rear end. The braking duties are handled by disc brakes at either side which is further mated to a dual-channel ABS unit as standard.
The fuel tank capacity, seat height, and tire size remain identical to the BSIV FZ25 that endured a decent success in the Indian market unlike its faired sibling, the Fazer 25. FZS 25 will feature a bi-functional, Class D-type LED headlamp which has a single unit for both high and low beams. LED Daytime Running Lights are common but the FZS 25 gets noteworthy additions such as a taller windshield and knuckle guards. In addition to that, the bike features a negative LCD display for the instrument console, an underbelly cowl, and a side-stand engine cut-off switch.
