In 2011, Yamaha India made some serious waves in the Indian motorcycle market with the release of the FZ16, FZS, Fazer, and YZF R15. Following the remarkable release of some of the best bikes to enter the market, Yamaha is upping the ante with the launch of the Fazer 250cc. The bike, for all intents and purposes, is Yamaha’s next step in reaching for the success of the 250cc segment.
The all new Yamaha Fazer 250cc is expected to be powered by a newly designed 153cc air-cooled, 4-stroke, SOHC, single-cylinder, 2-valve engine. The engine is capable of producing 14 horsepower and a max torque of 13.6 Nm (10 lb-ft).
Just like the FZ16 and FZ-S, the Yamaha Fazer carries the Monocross suspension, a technology that ensures agile running performance and handling. The placement of this model’s ‘MidShip Muffler’ toward the center of the machine provides the right kind of weight balance that makes for an efficient ride. Add that to the bike’s “140/60-17” size rear radial tire with a 60% aspect ratio and it all makes for a bike that comes with enough power, better grip, and handling stability.
