The wide speculations finally made it to the much awaited grand launch today at the Pullman Hotel, New Delhi as Bollywood heartthrob John Abraham revealed the new model to public applause and delight. The FZ25 will be available at across all authorised Yamaha dealerships in three exciting colour schemes – “Ballistic Blue”, “Warrior White” and “Knight Black”.

Building on the reputation, the new model has been developed with Yamaha’s New Generation Engine Development Ideal – ‘Blue Core’ featuring overall improved performance including fuel efficiency, acceleration and environmental friendliness.

With its maximum power output of 20.9 PS at 8,000 rpm and maximum torque of 20 N*m at 6,000 rpm, the new 249 cc model also offers an impressive array of new features including the LED headlight (First 250 cc model in India*) and an LCD instrument cluster with a high-quality look evoking a sense of innovation, a mudguard that moves with the swing arm, wheels with a spoke design like that of MT Series bikes and racing style footpads (rear seats) making it an irresistible option as the top-end model of the FZ Series. At the same time, it offers the nimbleness and easy-to-use character for daily use as well as riding excitement in a variety of usage scenes.

Speaking on the occasion,Mr Masaki Asano, Managing Director, Yamaha Motor India Sales Pvt. Ltdsaid, “The FZ series has been a great performer ever since its launch in 2008.
