The world of digital automobile designers is brimming with talent. People keep coming up with all sorts of unique design concepts for popular bikes.
If there ever is a Yamaha FZ 400 concept, it would most certainly look something like this. Yamaha has loyal fans in India who are looking for performance-oriented motorcycles at relatively affordable prices. The R15 series achieves just that and enjoys instant success among the biking community. The FZ 25 is something more relatable to an FZ 400. It is a much more powerful bike with sporty dynamics with the comfort of a touring bike. This concept version of the Yamaha FZ 400 borrows a lot of elements from the FZ 25.
Yamaha FZ 400 Concept
The front fascia of the bike looks very sporty with an aggressive and compact headlamp unit, naked body type, sculpted fuel tank, subtle body graphics, all-black side profile with plastic underbelly and engine protectors, a short but sporty exhaust pipe, large brake discs at the front, broad tyres for enhanced grip, split-seat setup, sleek tail-end with LED taillamps and short grab handles, etc. There is no front visor and the handlebars are slim as well. There are two colours in this bike, the sporty iconic blue that we have seen on other Yamaha bikes and a green. Abin_Designs_511 has come up with these iterations.
For reference, the FZ 25 comes with a 249-cc single-cylinder air-cooled engine that produces a healthy 20.8 PS and 20.1 Nm of peak power and torque respectively. It comes mated to a 5-speed manual gearbox. The suspension duties are carried by telescopic forks at the front and a monoshock absorber at the rear. Both the tyres get disc brakes with a dual-channel ABS as standard. The FZ 25 ranges in the region of Rs 1.36 lakh to Rs 1.38 lakh, ex-showroom. The Bajaj Dominar 250 and Suzuki Gixxer 250 are the closest rivals to it. We will have to wait and see if Yamaha ever thinks of bringing something like an FZ 400 to the market. If it does, how will the customers take it?
