Reasons to Buy 2019 Yamaha FZ25: Yamaha recently launched the new FZ25 ABS in India with a price tag of INR 1,33,680 (ex-showroom). The motorcycle shares some of the components with the 149cc FZ series while most of the visual parts are new on the FZ25. It has been launched in Matt Black, Dark Matt Blue and Cyan Blue shades. Here are 7 reasons to buy the 2019 Yamaha FZ25 over any other bike in its segment.

2019 Yamaha FZ25 Street Fighter

7 Reasons to Buy 2019 Yamaha FZ25

1) It’s a Yamaha

Yamaha motorcycles are known for their excellent built quality and FZ25 is no different in those terms. It uses premium parts like 41 mm front forks, wider tyres and first in class features like instantaneous fuel efficiency and LED headlight. Apart from that, the after-sales service and part availability have never been an issue with the company. The charm created by the first ever FZ could be repeated through the quarter-litre machine.

2) High on Torque

The 249cc, fuel injected, oil cooled engine is good for 20 Nm of torque at just 6000 rpm. This makes it better for everyday riding as no other bike around the price tag of INR 1.33 lakh has such magic in its engine. Others like Apache RTR 200, Pulsar RS200 and KTM 200 Duke deliver their maximum torque at around 7000-8000 rpm while even then the torque output value is lower as compared to the FZ25. It’s not built for top speed as the core belief of the engine is crisp acceleration and powerful drive.

3) Dual-Channel ABS

The disc brakes on the new FZ25 support 2-channel ABS for additional safety of the rider. Most products around this price segment are available with single channel ABS and saving money on the FZ25 by removing the ABS sensor from the rear disc was never on the plans of Yamaha India. The front brake measures 282mm while the rear is 220mm.

4) Lightweight & Excellent Mileage

Yamaha FZ25 weighs just 152 kg and that too with a fuel tank that has 14 litres of capacity. This helps in delivering the excellent 43 kmpl of Yamaha claimed mileage. Other bikes that carry a quarter litre engine mostly weigh between 155-165 kg in the Indian market.  The tank extensions are aerodynamic and the overall design facilitates a powerful presence. Yamaha’s Blue Core technology helps in keeping performance high and expenses low.

5) Full Digital Console

The instrument console on the motorcycle is crystal clear and offers a single screen that holds the tachometer, speedometer, odometer, two trip-meters and values like average as well as instantaneous fuel efficiency. The fuel gauge is even digital on the FZ25. The portion that is finished in Gloss Black holds the LED indicator lights for the other functions on the motorcycle.

6) Looks & Style

Undoubtedly, this section will have different views from different users. The fuel tank section of the motorcycle is massive and carries all-new extensions that are much sharper than former FZ models. Headlight and taillight design is highly inspired by the MT series. Shades have been perfectly distributed on the body parts as few elements are finished in Matt Black while others include body specific colours like Cyan, Matte Blue and Gloss Black.  The all-LED headlight looks very futuristic, but on the downside, the illumination is poor in comparison to other bikes of this segment.

7) Value for Money

When considering a price tag of INR 1,33,680 in India, it cannot be said that it falls in the easy to buy segment for average buyers. Still, no other manufacturer offers a 249cc, fuel injected engine in this price range and that too with LED lights and such premium finish. The nearest quarter-litre machine is Honda CBR250R (INR 1.64 lakh) while the closest in terms of competition is KTM 250 Duke (INR 1.81 lakh).

Yamaha FZ25 ABS has been launched in India for INR 1.33 lakh (ex-showroom). The most popular motorcycle of its segment, FZ25 is seen with dual channel ABS and gets a price hike of INR 14,000. Along with the FZ25, Fazer 25 ABS has also been launched for INR 1.43 lakh. Both the bikes are similar in terms of performance, with Fazer adding value for money touring parts like the fairing. The price difference between FZ25 and Fazer 25 is still INR 10,000.

Unlike the second generation FZ with just INR 7,000 of difference and twin headlights on the Fazer, the 250cc variant comes with fairing around the single LED headlight. Yamaha has also launched the new FZ V3 ABS for INR 95,000. Both the 150cc FZ options are available with single channel ABS. The FZ25 ABS is powered by a 249cc engine, producing 20.9 HP of maximum power and 20 Nm of torque. The bike weighs just 148 kg and rivals KTM 250 Duke in India.

Yamaha Fazer 25 ABS
Yamaha Fazer 25 ABS Launched in India @ INR 1,43,000 (Ex-Showroom)

Fazer 25 is an exclusive product for this segment, offering performance comparable to the INR 1.94 lakh worth CBR250R for just INR 1.43 lakh. Still, the fan following for FZ25 is stronger than the touring version. Yamaha has already updated the entire FZ-series in India, leaving just the R15-S, Fazer 150 and SZ-RR V2 without ABS. The single channel unit can make its way into all three of them or Yamaha could choose to bring dual-channel ABS into the R15-S for exclusivity.

Yamaha FZ25 is powered by a 249cc, fuel injected engine, which is good for 20.69 BHP at 8,000 rpm and 20 NM at 6,000 rpm. The engine comes mated to a 5-speed gearbox and the bike weighs just 148 kg. FZ25 is one of the most exciting products by Yamaha and it is also the most-affordable 250cc motorcycle you can buy in India. Here is the complete list of the pros and cons of the 250cc Yamaha FZ street fighter.

Pros of Yamaha FZ25

1) Most Affordable 250cc Bike in India

This typical Yamaha carries the tag of the most affordable motorcycle in the quarter-litre segment. FZ25 comes with a smaller price tag than other motorcycles around the engine segment. The only motorcycles that falls under its price tag is Apache RTR 200, and Pulsar NS200 and both of them carries a smaller engine. Pulsar RS200, KTM 200 Duke and even the CBR250R are highly priced in comparison. FZ25 is available for INR 1,19,335 (ex-showroom Delhi).

2) Excellent Mileage @ 43 kmpl

Yamaha FZ25 claims an excellent mileage of 43 kmpl. All others around the segment are not even into the 40+ league as maximum of them return close to 35 kmpl of mileage from their engines. This will keep the overall cost of running low and let the user enjoy ample power within the accessible range. The powerful engine is even delivering class-leading torque in its price segment.

3) Good Build Quality

FZ250 is a Yamaha by birth and this makes it entitled to the best quality components available across Indian motorcycle industry. It shares most of its components with the younger FZ version 2.0, promising a high-quality product that will perform better on everyday roads. The tried and tested formula even builds more trust within the existing and new customers for Yamaha Motor India.

4) Lightweight

Yamaha has built the bike in such a way that it weighs just 148 kg with a full fuel tank and all fluids in the engine. A motorcycle that carries 14 liters of petrol, 1.55 liters of engine oil and few other liquid components weighs quite low when compared to others around the performance segment. This makes it easy for riders to control the FZ250 in heavy traffic and even handling it around the bends at certain speeds.

5) All-Digital Instrument Console

The instrument console on the new FZ25 is really impressive, presenting new features like dual trip-meter, instantaneous and average mileage as well as a digital clock. The regular values like tachometer, speedometer and odometer are also placed in a nice manner, making values easily visible while driving.

6) Macho Design

The design of Yamaha FZ25 looks inspired from other members of the FZ family, carrying the Macho character for enhanced street bike appeal. The fuel tank is even chiseled for maximum attitude while extended cowls are totally new in design. The headlight flaunts fearless styling while lighter tail end adds the sporty bit into the overall design. It even looks mature with its independent tyre hugger.

7) Comfortable Seat Height

Yamaha FZ25 comes with a seat height of 795 mm, making it lower than most other street fighters in the price segment. This makes it easy for riders with average height to control the bike and drive with an easy hand. Along with that, The seating posture of the FZ25 is said to be typical street bike style, improving over the position that is available on the other FZ series bikes. Straight back can even reduce fatigue during extended rides on the FZ25.

8) High Torque

The 249 cc, fuel injected engine produces 20 NM of torque at just 6,000 rpm. The high torque promises excellent riding comfort and easy drive on all types of terrains. The engine is relaxed and pushing the rider for high revving is not in its nature. The mature riding style may not be suitable for those who love revving the bike hard but could impress audience which needs a bike with ample power and powerful presence.

9) Availability

Yamaha FZ25 is available pan India from the first day of its launch. Unlike TVS and Bajaj, Yamaha usually starts the deliveries across every small and large city of India at the same time. Not just that, Yamaha is expanding its dealership network in such a way that every Indian motorcycle lover can buy one around his town.

10) Attractive Shades

Yamaha FZ25 is offered in three attractive shades namely Warrior White, Ballistic Blue, and Knight Black. The dual tone shades offer Gloss Black as second shade on the Blue and Black while Grey/Matte Black can be seen on most of the panels of Warrior White. The shades are really attractive and customer can select any one out of all at the same price tag of INR 1,19,335. Yamaha misses out the typical race Blue from the FZ series.

11) Low Power But Very Quick!

The power output of Yamaha FZ25 is 20.69 BHP at 8000 rpm. The value seems low when compared to the output of Bajaj Pulsar NS200 (23.17 BHP), Pulsar RS200 (24.2 BHP) and KTM 200 Duke (24.6 BHP). All other produce the peak power at 9500-10000 rpm while the Yamaha FZ25 needs just 8000 rpm for the same. Yamaha FZ25 is one of the quickest bikes in India in this price range.

Cons of Yamaha FZ25

1) No ABS

Yamaha FZ25 lacks ABS as an option as most other bikes around the segment are offered with optional ABS. Yamaha will introduce the ABS model in the coming weeks but it could have simply been kept as standard at the time of launch.

2) Lack of 6th Gear

The motorcycle comes with a 5-speed gearbox, this could be a cost cutting factor as Yamaha FZ series never experienced the 6-speed gearbox from its time of launch. Although, the R15S has a 150cc engine and uses a 6-speed gearbox, claiming a price tag that is nearly equal to the 250cc FZ. Yamaha must have shared the 5-speed unit with the FZS V2 itself.

3) No Liquid Cooling

FZ25 carries an air+oil cooled engine that can also be a cost-cutting fact from Yamaha’s side, as the engine used in FZ250 has been carried over from the Fazer 250 sold in Brazil. Liquid cooling could have increased the overall cost of the bike and even was not that necessary for its naked design. The air cooling factor is great as Yamaha engines are good performers without the need for a complicated system for the same.

4) Poor LED Headlamp

Yamaha FZ25 comes with an aggressive-looking full LED headlight, improving the style quotient of the motorcycle in every way. But as per most of the owners, the LED headlight is a poor performer. So, in case you are planning to buy the FZ25, we would recommend you to replace the stock LED bulbs with high-intensity after-market options.

KTM 125 Duke vs Yamaha FZ25: The 250cc Yamaha FZ is a segment leader at INR 1.19 lakh, not just impressing everyone with its pricing but also producing unmatchable power in comparison to other bikes around this price segment. The launch of KTM 125 Duke at INR 1.18 lakh placed it right against the flagship street machine from Yamaha, offering benefits of premium parts for the Orange machine and unbeatable power for the Blue team. KTM 125 Duke is available with upside down front forks, single-channel ABS and better instrument console in comparison to the Yamaha FZ25. The 125cc engine is liquid cooled for higher levels of refinement within city riding conditions.

Yamaha FZ25 measures double in terms of displacement, producing 8 Nm of excess torque in comparison to the 125cc Duke. The power figure also comes with a gap of 6.4 PS between both the rivals. However, the weight is exactly similar due to the use of premium performance-spec components on both the bikes. The six-speed gearbox is exclusive to KTM 125 Duke while Yamaha offers a relaxed riding 5-speed gearbox with maximum power and torque availability at a much lower point. Along with the brakes and suspension components, tyres are also better on KTM 125 Duke.

Yamaha FZ25 vs KTM 250 Duke: FZ25 is priced at INR 1,19,000 while its closest competitor, 250cc Duke is available for INR 1,80,000. The price difference of INR 61,000 is large enough to fit a perfect Indian commuter in between them.

Here is a detailed comparison based on all the factors that a buyer considers before going for his/her perfect quarter liter machine.

Yamaha FZ25 vs KTM 250 Duke – Detailed Comparison & Verdict

# Engine

Yamaha FZ25 is powered by a 249 cc, air+oil cooled and fuel injected engine that is good for 20.69 BHP at 8000 rpm and 20 Nm at 6000 rpm. The engine comes mated to a 5-speed gearbox and comes with relaxed riding yet very aggressive character. KTM 250 Duke carries a 248.8 cc, liquid cooled and fuel injected engine producing 29.58 BHP at 9000 rpm and 24 Nm at 7500 rpm. This engine uses a 6-speed manual gearbox with slipper clutch for more efficiency. Yamaha produces maximum power at a lower point while KTM claims higher revs for excellent performance.

# Performance

Yamaha FZ25 vs KTM 250 Duke

KTM 250 Duke presents 0-60 kmph in 3.44 seconds while its 0-100 kmph takes just 8.64 secs. The performance is decent for a quarter liter motorcycle but KTM fans were expecting even more from the highly tuned engine. Yamaha FZ25 surprisingly comes out to be faster at 0-60 kmph in just 3.37 seconds and takes the same gap to 0-100 kmph in 8.58 seconds. The top speed for the KTM 250 Duke was marginally better at 137.7 kmph while Yamaha FZ25 took the rider to 134 kmph of top speed. The values given here are V-Box tested by PowerDrift.

# Kerb Weight

Yamaha FZ25 is one of the most efficient motorcycle in its class, carrying a wet weight of just 148 kg.

The fuel tank on offer on the KTM 250 Duke is 13.5 liters while the Yamaha FZ25 comes with slightly bigger 14 liter fuel tank.

# Headlight

KTM 250 Duke gets a sharp headlight that is basically Halogen equipped and carries LED bull horn style daytime running lights in the surrounding. The size of the headlamp is large and the aggressive design is partially inspired from 1290 Super Duke R. Yamaha FZ25 gets a MT style, small headlight unit that comes with LED high and low beam. The headlight is brighter than the halogen unit and uses lesser power than the same too. Both the bikes are offered with auto/all-time headlight on (AHO) feature.

# Brakes & Suspension

Yamaha FZ25 vs KTM 250 Duke

KTM 250 Duke comes with USD forks that measure 43 mm in diameter. The WP sourced suspension is sport tuned and claims excellent handling capabilities on the motorcycle. The front and rear suspension allows 150 mm of wheel travel while the high 185 mm of ground clearance makes it better than Yamaha claimed 160 mm for the FZ25.

The rival uses everyday telescopic forks that are actually sourced from the younger FZ16. It is actually good for everyday use and lesser expensive than the 250 Duke’s suspension setup. Yamaha FZ25 comes with 282 mm (2-piston caliper) front and 220 mm (1-piston caliper) rear disc brake. On the other hand, KTM 250 Duke is offered with 300 mm (4-piston caliper) front and 230 mm (1-piston caliper) rear disc brake. Both the bikes are offered without ABS and there is not even an optional ABS variant on any out of them.

# Design

KTM 250 Duke is carrying a class leading design with an all new frame on offer. The sub-frame on the 250 Duke is painted Orange while the front frame is left in Black shade itself. The alloy wheels on offer on the KTM 250 Duke are also finished in Black. It comes with a typically sharp fuel tank extensions and high seat for commanding ride position. Yamaha FZ25 carries a MT series inspired design language with average body dimensions and focus on performance. The headlight is smaller but better in design than any other FZ series model on sale in India.

# Price & Value for Money

Yamaha FZ25 vs KTM 250 Duke

Yamaha FZ25 comes with a price tag of INR 1,19,000 while the KTM 250 Duke costs INR 1,80,000. Both the prices are ex-showroom Delhi and would attract other charges like insurance and registration. Yamaha FZ25 is more of a value for money product as it offers more practical features for a comfortable everyday riding experience. KTM 250 Duke should have provided the dual channel ABS from the bigger Duke and then would have came out as a better option than FZ25.
