Yamaha FZ25 review
The Yamaha FZ25 is an affordable 250cc segment motorcycle available in the market with an availability of full faired sibling, the Fazer 250. The presence of 250cc segment made by the Yamaha is one step ahead in the Indian motorcycle scenario. Yamaha has kept the looks of the FZ25 close to the FZ16 with a very decent level.
Yamaha still retains its reputation and decent level of sales in FZ 16 models and expected to proceed in the same manner, in case of FZ 250. Finally, the all new 250 cc class street fighter, the Yamaha FZ 25 is launched at an attractive price of ₹ 1,20,000 recently.

Yamaha keeps FZ250 reminiscing about the younger version FZ 16.

The front fender, fuel tank, air shrouds, side mount mid-ship exhaust are typical characters of the FZ 16.
But, the rear tyre hugger and the headlamp appear fresh and neat. Yamaha is keeping the genes of FZ250 to have the same, which can be claimed as a bigger FZ 16, than having the identical appearance of the 150 cc FZ.
