The superhero industry, particularly Marvel has a huge potential and several other industries don’t miss out on any chance of tapping into it. The automotive industry seems to have acquired a taste of Marvel as Yamaha has launched the FZ 25 clad in Marvel superhero liveries. Sadly, it seems like the limited edition streetfighter motorcycles are going to be limited to Brazil only as the Japanese bikemaker has rolled them out to celebrate Yamaha’s 50th anniversary in Brazil. It was first displayed at an auto show in 2019 and marks the first partnership with Marvel.
Although Yamaha displayed the models inspired by Iron Man, Spider-Man, Thor, and other Marvel heroes then, only Black Panther and Captain Marvel-inspired FZ 25 have managed to make the cut.
Not only this but Yamaha has also launched a Captain America-inspired Lander 250. Cosmetically, both the editions look spectacular and manage to stand apart from the sea of streetfighters available in the market today. For a Marvel fanboy, they would serve as the perfect addition to the garage. The Black Panther livery, as one might have guessed, features a glossy black and silver paint job with purple accents.
What makes it even more aesthetically pleasing are the inclusion of intricate details seen on the Wakandan hero’s suit. If you love the blonde-haired Captain Marvel, Yamaha has got your back! While the Black Panther edition of the Yamaha FZ25 looks stealthy, the Captain Marvel edition looks lively with a glossy navy blue and bright red paint job. It gets flashy graphics complete with the Star of Hala on the faux air intakes and the front fender. Both the editions remain the same mechanically.
Specs and price
While we have already received the updated version of the Yamaha FZ25, Brazil still has to make do with the pre-facelift version. The FZ25 is powered by the same 249cc, air-cooled single-cylinder engine producing 20.8PS and 20.1Nm. It also features dual-channel ABS and LED illumination. Talking about its pricing, Yamaha FZ25 Avengers Edition has been priced at 18,090 Brazilian Real which roughly translates to INR 2.45 lakh and is Rs 4200 cheaper than the standard model. On the other hand, the Lander 250 is retailed at 19,290 Brazilian Real, which is around INR 2.62 lakh.
