The 2013 Yamaha Fazer8 ABS offers a great mix between comfort and practicality and is packed with a lot of modern features that help it tackle anything you’ll throw at it.
At the heart of the motorcycle lies a high-tech 779 cc inline 4-cylinder engine that cranks out 78.1 kW (106.2PS) at 10,000 rpm and 82.0 Nm (8.4 kg-m) of torque at 8,000 rpm. The engine is brought to life by an electric starter and is kept in leash by a modern constant mesh transmission.
The motorcycle is built on a supersportstyle lightweight aluminum Deltabox frame which is combined with an upside-down telescopic fork and a rear monoshock with spring preload adjustment.
You also get Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) as standard equipment. This system helps you prevent front and rear wheel lock up while braking on slippery surfaces.

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.

Yamaha has just released the new promotional video for the Fazer series. The sport-touring two-wheelers look right in their element on twisted mountain roads because Yamaha engineered these models for pure performance and comfort, while the design is as aggressive as you can get in this class.
The video shows a motorcycle pack (coworkers, to be quite honest) choosing to skip work in order to ride more their…Fazers and spend some quality time together. So I guess that in this case, riding is some sort of team building activity.
