Yamaha FZ25 and FZS 25 compete against other naked quarter liter bikes like Bajaj Pulsar N250 and Suzuki Gixxer 250
2021 was a busy year for Yamaha with the all-important launch of the fourth generation R15. The company also launched its first maxi scooter in India in the form of Aerox 155. Yamaha’s next big launch is expected to be the next-generation version of MT-15, the naked streetfighter iteration of R15. For that, they updated FZS25.
Yamaha continues to provide regular updates on its product range to keep potential buyers interested. The Japanese motorcycle manufacturer has added two new color options to its bare quarter liter offering: FZS25 for 2022. The new shades added to the palette include Matte Copper and Matte Black.
2022 Yamaha FZS25 – New Color Options
Yamaha has updated both the FZS25 and FZ25. While the former is priced at Rs 1,43,300, the latter is pegged at a price tag of Rs 1,38,800 (both ex-showroom prices). FZ25 will be offered with Racing Blue and Metallic Black color options, while new Matte Copper and Matte Black colors will be offered with FZS25.
Aside from new color options, nothing has changed in the naked quarter-litre streetfighter. Both two-tone color options enhance the bike’s sporting appeal. To complement the overall aesthetic, both color options come with copper alloy wheels that look a bit flashy. The standard variant is also offered with a MotoGP-inspired livery.
Engine Specifications, Hardware and Features
The FZ25 is powered by a 249cc, air-cooled SOHC single-cylinder engine that generates 20.5 horsepower at 8,000 rpm and peak torque of 20.1 Nm at 6,000 rpm. This engine is coupled to a 5-speed gearbox. The suspension is provided by telescopic forks at the front and a monoshock at the rear.
Anchoring is handled by disc brakes (282mm front and 220mm rear) at both ends, aided by dual-channel ABS. The motorcycle rides on 17-inch alloy wheels on both ends that are shod with 100 sections at the front and 140 sections at the rear.
Features such as full LED lighting, negative LCD instrument cluster, under hood and sidestand with engine shut-off switch are offered as standard in both variants. The top-spec S variant benefits from additional hardware such as a long visor, brush guards on the handles and gold alloy wheels.
Yamaha recently updated the smaller FZ25 a few weeks ago. The 2022 FZ Fi and FZS Fi have received a new LED headlight. With this update, the FZ range of bikes will get full LED lighting as standard. The Japanese motorcycle manufacturer has also updated the color palette on the street naked bike with new options to choose from.
