Yamaha Fazer 25 spotted testing in India


After launching the FZ25 earlier this year, Yamaha seems to now be working on its faired sibling. A semi-faired motorcycle has recently been spotted testing, which appears to be based on the FZ25. The bike is expected to be called the Fazer 25 and will likely be launched by the end of this year.

The fuel tank and rear profile of the bike appears to be similar to that of the FZ25. The exhaust and rear tyre hugger also seem to be borrowed from the streetfighter. The front gets a semi-fairing, while the presence of higher-placed handlebars and a large windscreen points towards the fact that the bike will likely be tuned for touring needs.

The Fazer 25 is expected to be powered by the same 249 cc, single cylinder, air cooled fuel-injection engine that is found in the FZ25. Under the naked motorcycle, this engine develops 20.6 BHP @ 8,000 rpm and 20 Nm of peak torque at 6,000 rpm.

The Fazer 25 is also expected to feature LED headlamps, LCD instrumentation and disc brakes on both wheels. The bike will be equipped with telescopic forks at the front and monoshock at the rear.
