Yamaha launched the new Yamaha Fazer 25 in India at Rs 1,29,335 (Ex-showroom, Delhi). The Yamaha Fazer 25 is the touring version of the Yamaha FZ25 street bike. Unlike the Yamaha Fazer 150cc motorcycle which employs a quarter fairing, the new Fazer 25 is a fully-faired motorcycle and competes against the Bajaj Pulsar RS200 and the soon to be relaunched Honda CBR250R. The new motorcycle features the same LED headlight as seen on its street bike sibling but it also features a large windscreen to protect the rider from wind blast at high speeds. Talking about price, the new 250cc Yamaha is priced at a premium of Rs 10,000 over the FZ25 and retail for Rs 1.29 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi).
The relaxed 250cc engine should make the Fazer 25 a good option for someone looking for an easy to ride and reliable touring motorcycle. Underneath the fairing sits the same 250cc, fuel-injected motor sourced from the FZ25. The Fazer 25 continues to produce the similar figures as the FZ25, which is 20.9PS of maximum power and 20Nm of peak torque. The engine is mated to a five-speed gearbox. The new Yamaha Fazer 25 shares its underpinnings with the FZ25. Suspension duties are handled by telescopic forks at the front and a monoshock at the rear. Braking prowess is offered by a 282mm disc with a 2-pot calliper at the front and a 220mm disc with a single-pot calliper at the rear. The Fazer 25 also doesn't feature ABS as an optional extra.
The Fazer 25 is a tourer based on the FZ 25. The Fazer 25 uses the FZ 25’s underpinnings and bodywork with the addition of a full fairing. The new fairing is well-integrated into the body work and looks good when viewed from the side though the front could have been designed better. The bike gets two two-tone colour options. The feature list is similar to the FZ 25 though the Fazer gets an extra horn. It gets LED headlamp with DRL’s integrated into the fairing, fully digital instrument console and a floating flyscreen.
The Fazer 25 carries forward the same underpinnings of the FZ 25. Power is courtesy a 249cc air and oil-cooled fuel-injected single-cylinder motor. Output is 20.9PS at 8000rpm and 20Nm of torque at 6000rpm. Performance and dynamics is expected to be slightly duller than the FZ 25 as the Fazer 25 weighs 6kgs more. Nevertheless we expect the bike to perform well at low revs thanks to the short gearing. The motor is refined though the engine would feel strained at touring speeds due to its shorter gearing. Suspension includes telescopic front forks and linked rear monoshock. Braking is via disc brakes at the front and rear.
Bajaj Pulsar RS 200: The Pulsar RS 200 is a 200cc faired sports bike. Its sportiness comes in the form of a perimeter frame and gas charged rear monoshock that makes the RS 200 a hoot around corners. The bike gets twin projector headlamps and LED tail lamps and indicators. Power comes courtesy a 199.5cc liquid cooled and fuel injected single that makes 24.5PS at 9750rpm and 18.6Nm of torque at 8000rpm. The RS 200 is priced at Rs 1,21,894 (ex-showroom Delhi). The ABS version retails for RS 1.33.747.
The Yamaha Fazer 25 fills in the shoes of the now discontinued Hero Karizma series. It serves up as a good alternative for those looking for a substantially large bike without spending a bomb on it. The Fazer 25 should be comfortable and perform well in the city though the short gearing makes it unsuitable for touring. The Pulsar RS 200 offers better value though, offering more kit for Rs 8,000 less.
