Yamaha FZ25 Expert Opinion

  • Good Things

    • Great in the city and highways
    • Has oodles of torque
    • Comfortable riding position
  • Could be Better

    • There's engine vibrations at higher revs
    • 5-speed gearbox is clunky

BikeWale's Take

The FZ25 is for those upgrading from 150-200cc commuter motorcycles. While the power output isn't incredible for a 250cc bike, it works well in the city and on highways. It is also a very reliable and offers good fuel efficiency.

Yamaha FZ25 Review

Yamaha's entrant to the 250cc bracket is a scaled-up version of the ever-popular FZ16. Will it succeed in the same way that the 150cc has? We find out.

What is it?

Why I would buy the Yamaha FZ25

It is a perfect upgrade for someone who has outgrown the performance of the premium 150-200cc commuter motorcycles but doesn't want to let go of the low commuter maintenance costs.

Why I would avoid the Yamaha FZ25

The rough edges like the engine vibrations are very unlike Yamaha. Plus, it doesn't stand out in a crowd like its price-point peers do. 

Yamaha’s bigger, more expensive FZ is its answer to the expanding premium motorcycle segment that everyone is eyeing, based on the numbers that Royal Enfield sells. The space here is getting quite crowded – besides the standard Bullet 350 and the Classic 350, there’s the KTM 200 Duke, Bajaj Dominar 400, Bajaj RS200, Honda CBR150R and Yamaha’s very own R15. The Japanese manufacturer saw a gap in the price range for a commuter motorcycle and decided on making a bigger version of its very popular FZ16, which clocks segment-leading numbers even now. 

How does it ride?

Surprisingly stiffly. The FZ16 offers a cossetting ride, but the FZ25 needs a little more suspension travel at the front. Even with our heavy road testers (who we like to call ‘load testers’) the ride was stiff – of course, this translates to some great feedback, especially considering the chassis is a Yamaha, so cornering on the FZ25 is a hoot. The engine is derived from an old design, so there’s a two-valve head and an unimpressive 20bhp power figure. The torque has an identical 20Nm figure, and it is spread well over the rev range. We must mention here that anything that displaces 250cc and yet manages to generate less power than a Pulsar 220 and the same as a Karizma ZMR won’t win any spec comparisons. However, in real life, it means that getting ahead involves a mere twist of the wrist. There’s no downshifting business required with this motorcycle. The gearbox is a smooth, positive unit but has only five speeds. The brakes on the FZ have no ABS but are full of feel and feedback. An option of specifying it with ABS would have been a great idea – we expect this will happen when the equivalent Fazer launches.

 

The switch from the FZ16’s radials to a regular nylon crossply set has made the FZ a better handler on smooth roads, but it exhibits some old-school behavior like the handlebar twitching in your hands when you try to cross an expansion joint at too shallow an angle. That said, it is a hoot to commute on, with enough power to outrun most things on the highway as well, and keep up with all but one or two motorcycles at the price point. With the wide handlebar, surprisingly rearset footpegs (for a commuter) and a chassis, suspension and brake setup that is willing to play, the FZ25 will be a good choice for a jaunt down twisty roads. 

Anything else I should know?

The engine is based on a ten-year old design, so it will be indestructible. It also has the vibrations of a motor engineered that long ago, which is a bit of a shock if you’re used to the silky refinement of the FZ16. It more than makes up for all its negative points with a real-world fuel efficiency figure of nearly 42kpl – 150cc owners would be happy with a figure like that! The FZ25 also feels like a small motorcycle – great for most regular-sized Indians, but when you sit on competition like the Bajaj Dominar, you get a sense of how cramped the Yam actually is.

 

While the instrument cluster displays a lot of information, it is a very small screen. We’re slowly but surely moving to displays that have a strong sense of style; reverse LCDs and colour screens with Bluetooth and whatnot – the FZ25’s screen feels like a digital screen designed a while ago. 

Should I buy one?

If you’re an FZ16 owner, yes. If you’re a premium 150cc owner and wants to upgrade but don’t want the extremes that are available at the price point – KTM 200 Duke, Royal Enfield Classic 350, Bajaj Dominar 400 – and want to stick to the style of motorcycle that you’re comfortable with, then yes, you should. The fuel efficiency and maintenance costs will keep you happy, the performance will keep you smiling, and it will be dead reliable. 

Where does it fit in?

At Rs 1.18 lakh ex-showroom, the Yamaha FZ25 has a surprising number of motorcycles that can be considered competition – at the low end there is the Bajaj Pulsar 220F (Rs 89,000), an old favourite that offers the best horsepower-to-price ratio in the business. A more modern set of alternatives lies in the Bajaj Pulsar NS200 (Rs 94,000), TVS Apache RTR 200 4V FI (Rs 1 lakh), Bajaj Pulsar RS200 (Rs 1.22 lakh) and KTM 200 Duke (Rs 1.45 lakh). Left-field alternatives to the FZ25 are the Bajaj Dominar 400 non-ABS (Rs 1.4 lakh) and the Royal Enfield Classic 350 (Rs 1.36 lakh). Much further up the price chain are similar format, similar displacement models like the KTM 250 Duke (Rs 1.75 lakh) and Benelli TNT25 (Rs 1.71 lakh). 

Gear check

1. Nuvo 'Foul Plugs' helmet Not on sale for a while now, this helmet meets ECER22-05 ratings and has a double-D ring strap all at a very affordable price. Not to mention a very neat little cartoon story as well. Price: (approx) ₹ 6000

2. Alpinestars T-GP R Air A textile jacket that is a good middle ground between the protection of a textile jacket with the cooling of a mesh jacket thanks to the well-designed airflow, the T-GP Plus is one of the better jackets for an Indian summer. Price:  16,500 (T-GP Plus Air)

3. Cortech by Tour Master Injector gloves These full-length gloves are a cross between a touring glove and a racing glove. This pair has moulded plastic for knuckle protection, a leather back and perforated leather in between the fingers for ventilation. A fleece liner will keep you warm during the winter - but is surprisingly good during the summer as well. Price:  8700 before shipping and duties (Impulse RR)

4. Joe Rocket Phoenix 2.0 pants Mesh is a wonderful thing in our heat, and the Joe Rocket Phoenix mesh pants manage an ideal combination of protection via the removable armour and airflow. Price: ₹ 9600 (Phoenix Ion)

5. Royal Enfield long riding boots With a little inspiration from both off-road boots and touring boots, the RE long riding boots are comfortable and yet protective. Price: ₹ 11,000

    I have been using this bike for 3 years now and this is my honest opinion of it. Firstly the most important aspect of this bike is it's value for money proposition. It is not just the cheapest 250cc bike but also very pocket friendly in terms of service and maintenance.

About FZ25

The Yamaha FZ25 is powered by 249cc BS6 engine which develops a power of 20.51 bhp and a torque of 20.1 Nm. With both front and rear disc brakes, Yamaha FZ25 comes up with anti-locking braking system. This FZ25 bike weighs 153 kg and has a fuel tank capacity of 14 liters.

Yamaha has updated its quarter-litre naked roadster motorcycle, the FZ 25 to comply with the BS6 emission norms. Unlike its predecessor, the FZ 25 is now available in two variants – standard and S. The FZ 25 is priced at Rs 1,52,100 while the FZS 25 will be available for Rs 1,57,100 (ex-showroom Delhi).

The underpinnings, engine and hardware are identical on both variants of the FZ 25 series. The updated model range is powered by a BS6-compliant 249cc, air-cooled, SOHC, single-cylinder engine that produces 20.5bhp of power at 8,000rpm and 20.1Nm of torque at 6,000rpm.

The new Yamaha FZ25 MotoGP edition, which will be available for a limited period, gets a YZR-M1-inspired livery. This includes a black base paint with highlights of blue on the headlight mask and the tank shrouds. The design, on the other hand, remain identical to the standard FZ25. The mechanical specifications, too, remain similar to the standard motorcycle.

Standard features on models include LED day time running lamp, LED headlight, negative LCD instrument cluster, under cowling and side stand with engine cut-off switch. The FZS 25 further benefits from additional hardware like a long visor, brush guards on the handle grips and golden alloy wheels.

The motor comes mated to a five-speed gearbox. The suspension is taken care of by telescopic forks for the front and a mono-shock at the rear while braking is done by single discs at both ends along with a dual-channel ABS.

The FZ 25 is designed targets the buyers who want a quick commuter that is refined and can sit comfortably at 100kmph all day long. The FZ 25 rivals the likes of Suzuki Gixxer 250 and the Bajaj Dominar 250 in the Indian market.
