I booked it at Pacer, Hebbal last weekend and was told 20 days waiting. To my surprise, got a call yesterday that the bike was ready. Making the full payment tomorrow and getting the bike delivered Saturday.
Is the tax increase in Karnataka really coming into effect 1-Apr?

Many congratulations skyliner34 . The FZ25 looks smashing in white. So what is the final on-road price? Also could you please share the break-up of the price? I would say 15-20 days waiting is pretty decent given that this is a new launch.

Many congratulations to you as well nma83. Looks like Yamaha has pumped in sufficient inventory at their dealers. Good planning for a new launch. Otherwise what is the point in launching a product and making the customers wait endlessly in the market.

Congrats nma. I booked mine at Laxmi international (arekere), regarding tax I was told if the billing is before April 1st then the tax is ~13% post which it will be around 18%, so you should fall in 13% bracket, inquire.

Thanks AI. Final on-road price given to me was 1,44,xxx INR, but SA informed there might be an increase of ~5000 INR due to road tax increase post April 1st.
I will post the detail breakup in sometime as I don't have the bill in front of me now.

Congrats skyliner34 and nma83 on your picks, welcome to the FZ Club guys

Seems like the White shade is the most sort after, and quite honestly I think this particular shade has lot more presence than the other 2.

When are we doing an 'All FZ25 Owners Meet' folks?

You know even for Dominar, white is the most sought after colour. As I have know from different sources and showroom, about 80℅ bikes out there are in white.

My current price is with 13% tax, but ideally I wanted to take delivery in Apr due to other reasons and was told the tax increase will come into effect on 1-Apr. While elsewhere in this forum it was mentioned that the increase has not yet been formalised, just proposed.

very soon Vik.
Another thing, showroom guys told KA RTO is yet to approve FZ25 and till then no registration happens, true? Did you get permanent registration number for your bike or still temp plates?
I won't be surprised if they approve post 1-April so they can make more money from increased road tax

Yep, the KA RTO has apparently not "OK"ed the FZ25.

I got my FZ25 delivered on 6 March and was running without even as much as a TR for nearly 2 weeks

I only got my TR number last weekend, which is valid for 30 days. So hopefully I get my permanent registration in the next 2 weeks.

Thumbs up Re: Yamaha teases new naked motorcycle. EDIT: FZ25 launched at Rs. 1.20 lakh

Got my bike yesterday evening. I am extremely pleased with its smoothness and ride quality. A thouroughly enjoyable bike for those who fall between liking the rawness of REs and the madness of KTMs .
I just wish that Yamaha could have come up with a better console design.

Congrats nma
Wishing you a lot of happy miles.
Totally agree on the console part, I say it's plain ugly and doesn't suit the bike at all. My Gixxer console was 10 times better looking though it lacked certain features compared to this.
What about registration? Still the same reason from RTO?

Thanks skyliner. I did not get the temp registration even, will get the day after due to Ugadi holiday. The registration proper is supposed to start only on first week of Apr. No idea why such a long hold up

Still the same RTO, guess we will be charged 18% road tax instead of 13
I'm supposed to get my bike in 1 weeks time, hopefully by then things would have been sorted.
How are the gear shifts? All test bikes I tested had terrible hardness associated with gears, hopefully not the case with new customer bikes.

Congrats once again nma83 and wish you a happy & safe biking

Couldn't agree more with you on the bike's intended segment. It is not as sophisticated as the Austrian Fireball, but surely not as primitive as the Indian REs either.

If I could compare these bikes with their 4 wheeled counterparts:

KTM 250/390 (Duke & 390) = Abarth Punto - Scarily Quick

Bajaj Pulsar NS 200/RS 200/Dominor 400 = GT TSI/TDI - Emphasis on the Performance

Yamaha FZ25 - Figo 1.5 TDCI - Deceivingly Quick

If I may answer your question here skyliner34, the gear shifts are still notchy, but I am noticing a stark improvement from the time I first rode the bike home.

The upshifts are very smooth, but the downshift is where it gets a bit bad at times. Ironically, I have to get to the N from the 2nd gear at times, as the bike seldom slots into the N from the 1st gear

But this also seems to be improving and at ~500Kms on the ODO, either I am understanding the bike or it seems to be smoothing out.

What I was told was; as long as I made the full payment before end of month, 13% tax applies. Remember even I was told a waiting of 20 days just a little more than a week back, which would have taken delivery into April.

To add to what Vik said, gear shifts are slick for me, both upshift and downshift. It would definitely get smoother after a couple of thousand KMs.
