Autonews #2

Yamaha’s FZ series in India enjoys a strong fan following, credits to its minimalistic design cues & ultra-refined torquey engines. These bikes are amateur friendly owing to its light weight & the low end torque present in the engines which make city rides an absolute delight & the weekend rides enjoyable too. Quite a few months back, Yamaha’s quarter-litre siblings FZ 25 & Fazer 25 (BS4 variants) went into hibernation, only to surprise us with their BS6 avatar & Boy they did so! The BS6 FZ 250 & FZS 250 have their specs updated today & we see a revamped LED bi-functional headlight design along with LED DRLs. These BS6 machines also carry an updated instrument cluster which actually is a nice upgrade from the old LCD panel & also features a side-stand engine cut-off switch feature.

 

Mechanically the bikes are still similar to the older versions with dual channel ABS as standard. Both will have the same 14-litre fuel tank which looks muscular & complements the design elements of the bikes. The FZ25 will be offered in two body colours – Metallic Black and Racing Blue. Whereas in FZS25 you will have three shades to opt for  – Platina Green, Dark Matt Blue and White Vermillion. The BS6 versions have gained about 5-6 kilos of extra muscle due to the catalytic converter upgrade & some additional accessories on the bike.

The new BS6 250cc Yamahas will have a game on against the straight rivals Suzuki Gixxer 250 and the newly launched Bajaj Dominar 250 in the quarter-litre segment. Head to Yamaha’s India website to know more details about these bikes. (Still there’s no update about the 3rd sibling Fazer 250, but we hope to get it soon. Fingers crossed !!) For now we can say for FZ “The Game is ON!”
