Yamaha FZ25 vs Fazer 250 – COMPARED!

2

Yamaha India launched the FZ25 earlier this year and now, speculations are rife that it’s about to launch the full-fairing version of this streetnaked. Expected to be called the Fazer 250, the upcoming 250cc bike from Yamaha could launch in coming months. The Fazer 250 will be essentially a FZ25 with a fairing and hence, is likely to be marketed as a sports-tourer. Going by the FZ25’s pricing, the Fazer 250 is likely to come at a competitive price point. While it might be a bit early to comment, we feel that the Fazer 250 will become a worthy contender for tourers willing to upgrade from, say, a Bajaj Pulsar 220. We’ve come up with a comparison between the Yamaha FZ25 and the Yamaha Fazer 250 in our post here. So read on for Yamaha FZ25 vs Fazer 250.yamaha fz25 vs fazer 250

Akin to the international-spec Yamaha Fazer 250 that you see above, the upcoming motorcycle will have a front fairing. However, for the upcoming India-spec model, the fairing will be more elaborate and hence, the Fazer 250 for India should look sportier. This fact has been confirmed by the few spy images that you will see on this page.

Yamaha FZ25 vs Fazer 250 Price Comparison

Model Price (ex-showroom)
Yamaha FZ25 Rs 1,19,500
Yamaha Fazer 250 Rs 1,30,000*

*expected

Quite obviously, the Fazer 250 will be costlier than the FZ25. This will be thanks to the front fairing and possibly a slight increase in power. While the FZ25 has been on sale for a price of Rs 1.19 Lakh (ex-showroom), the Fazer 250 is likely to have a sticker price of Rs 1.30 lakh (ex-showroom). In all probability, the full fairing and the re-tuned engine will justify this increase in power.

Yamaha FZ25 vs Fazer 250 Specifications Comparison

Specs Yamaha FZ25 Yamaha Fazer 250
Engine 249cc, Fuel-injected 249cc, Fuel-injected
No. of Cylinders 1 1
Max. Power 20.9 PS 21.5 PS*
Peak Torque 20 Nm 21 Nm*
Gearbox 5-speed Manual 5-speed Manual

*expected

In terms of specifications, there will be little difference between the two bikes we have here. The Fazer 250 will have the same 249cc single-cylinder engine that powers the FZ 25. In all likelihood, it will even get the same 5-speed Manual Transmission. For the FZ, this engine outputs a max. power of 20.9 PS @ 8,000 RPM and a peak torque of 20 Nm at 6,000 RPM. Thanks to the addition of a fairing, the Fazer 250 will weigh slightly more. However, for the upcoming 250cc Yamaha motorcycle, the manufacturer could re-tune the engine to output slightly more power. This will compensate for the increase in weight. It’s not for sure if ABS will be available on the 250cc Fazer.
