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

Test rode the FZ25 at Monarch Yamaha, Pune. Some observations :

+ Not sharp, but a sweet handler.
+ Refinement levels are excellent.
+ The torque curve is impressive, I could instantly connect with this motorcycle.
+ The seats are wide and comfortable.
+ Priced aggressively for a 250cc motorcycle.

- No ABS is a downer.
- No 6th gear as well.
- Lacklustre attitude of Yamaha India towards the FZ25 so far.


The FZ25 retails for 1.36 Lakhs OTR Pune.

Thank you //M for sharing your views.

I have mentioned this before and I will again, FZ25 just does not feel like the real Yamaha for me. Somehow, it does not seem as entertaining, enticing or exiting as the FZ was during its launch.

+100 to this buddy

The biggest reason for me to book the D250 from KTM stable.

I approached Raj Yamaha since they have been Yamaha dealer for a number of years and was put off by their general attitude (had a great TR experience for D400 with Jai Bajaj, actually). Was planning to visit JMB or Paras, will check with Samyuktha. Thanks.

As of now no dealer in Chennai is allowing test ride of the bike. I checked with Samyuktha, Paras, Jain, Sri Motors and one more dealer at Greams Road. The video review from "Dino's vault" has been uploaded on YouTube.

That review is a fairly balanced review but I am hoping to see one from our own forum at the earliest :-)

One of my speed-crazy brothers did a test ride of fz25, and surprisingly felt satisfied with the acceleration(he owns an R3). He told me it will be a perfect city bike and has the acceleration of CBR 250R till 100 kmph.

I am going to do a test ride tomorrow. Will post my thoughts.

Will try to compile a riding impression whenever I get time. Have done 220kms as of now.

I am impressed with its ride, handling & brakes. Lights need to be alingned which the local garage failed to, will go again today.

89 kmph @ 5,900 revs. 90 comes up at 6,000 revs. Didn't go further.

Oil & filters, nothing is available, heck, I haven't checked the manual as well. But it does turn heads.

Woah Sheel you have got the FZ25 and done over 200 Kms already, and I am struggling to even get a first look of the bike in Bangalore

Congrats man on your latest acquisition. Awaiting your report eagerly

I got the bike on Tuesday with 3 kms on the odo. This bike was purchased from Global Motors, Siliguri. I got help in sourcing the bike from Suman & Santanu, xkmph, Siliguri guys.

Bike's instrumentation has information regarding its speed, distance, clock and trip meters, average fuel economy & instaneous fuel economy. Sadly, you can toggle between each. For instance you can't have trip 1 and clock visible at the same time. In fact, the clock looks like the odo reading, have a look:

The front brakes are by Bybre & rear ones by Nissin. Tires are by MRF. FI activation is louder than the CBR 250R but shorter.

Will update further..

Congrats Sheel on acquiring the mean looking beauty.

You already did 1k km within two days of delivery

Enjoy your ride.

Congrats.

Handling was always the forte of the FZ package and I'm not surprised that you are impressed. Earlier one was like a leech around corners too!

But is this gearing for the top gear? Sounds a bit short geared, with hundred coming up around 7000rpm? Looks like the bike is crossing the max power band at around 110 kmph. Anything above should feel stressed if the engine is similar to the '16.

Saw one on the roads in Bangalore. Noticed only because of the brilliant LED lamp. Was thinking its a Dominar approaching and then realized its the Yamaha.

However, from other angles, without the LED lamps- it's hardly noticeable in a crowd of regular FZs.

Like he mentioned, that's not the odo but the time.

Btw, congrats on the bike Sheel. Wish you many happy miles. Good choice.

Is the tail alignment off? Or is it the angle of the shot.

Edit :- Sorry! The reply from the teambhp app isn't showing the image :(

It's due to the angle of the shot. Tail alignment is fine. The shot is taken slightly from the left side and not the center of the rear, hence it looks like its off.
By the way, Congratulations Sheel. The bike looks great, a worthy upgrade from 100/150cc bikes.

Congrats on the new acquisition Sheel! Waiting for a review thread from you. When you say the ride & brakes are good, they are better than your CBR?
