While Yamaha has remained tight-lipped about the launch date of the Fazer 250, YouTube channel wheels world has got a walkaround video of the upcoming quarter-litre motorcycle. The new Fazer 250, as reported earlier, is scheduled to arrive just ahead of the festive season. We expect to hear official announcement in the coming days. While we wait for that, check out the Fazer 250 through the walkaround video below:
The motorcycle, as seen previously too, will drop the dual headlight setup for an LED illuminator which it will share with the FZ25. The front of the motorcycle looks different from anything that we’ve seen in the recent past, something alien. The wing style LED pilot lamps sit near the lower part of the LED headlight. The headlight is surrounded by faux vents. The quarter-litre motorcycle receives a full fairing. We would’ve preferred the typical Fazer style, dual headlight setup with LED illuminator for the quarter-litre model.
Apart from the fairing, the Fazer 250 will share its design and hardware with the FZ25. It’d feature the same, all-digital instrument cluster and flat, single-piece handlebar as the FZ25. The addition of the fairing should offer solace against windblasts which would result in lesser fatigue during long distance rides, although it’s marginally add to the weight as well.
Mechanically, the specification are not likely to change from the FZ25 either. So powering duties would be provided by the same single cylinder 249cc air-cooled, 4-stroke, SOHC, 2-valve, fuel injected motor tuned to deliver 20.9 PS @ 8,000 rpm and 20 Nm of peak torque @ 6,000 rpm. The engine would come mated to a five-speed transmission.
