Q. My budget is 1.65 lakhs. Which bike should I prefer? I have FZ 25 on my mind. Will it be a good choice?
  • The Yamaha FZ25 is a good option for someone looking for a daily commuter. Being a Yamaha, the FZ25 will prove to be reliable in the long run, looks smart and is a lot more frugal in the city. The 249cc oil-cooled and fuel-injected single-cylinder engine that produces 20.9PS and 20Nm of torque. Yamaha claims a fuel efficiency figure of 43kmpl for the bike. The low sticker price and accessible power make it a good upgrade over your 150/160cc bike. Moreover, if you want a more powerful bike, then you may opt for the Bajaj Pulsar RS200. It is a well-rounded package with a good balance of performance and handling without compromising on comfort. What sweetens the deal further is the added safety net of ABS, the fresh design update, and the competitive pricing. In order to know which bike would be a more suitable companion, we'd recommend taking a test ride.

  • I own FZ25 2017, it is very good motorcycle, i have been to Kullu twice and did about 14 long trips on it other than daily riding. It is fantastic bike for daily riding as well as touring. Mileage varies from 32kmpl to 52kmpl. To get 52kmpl, you will not enjoy this bike. I like its quick pick up and powerful sound, maximum i have driven it is at 135 kmph. It is good bike to enjoy life.
  • If you need power + handling + daily commuting go for Dominor. If you are mileage concern go for FZ25 but it's less power than Dominor .
