    After using the bike for around 6 months on hilly terrains of kashmir i will list out the pros and cons of the bike.Pros: refinement of yamaha engine its butter smooth. Good power at low end good for driving in the hills.Dual channel abs for better safety. Mileage of 36 to 40 km depending on your riding style. Most comfortable seat among all 250cc bikes next to honda cbr 250.Pillion seat is comfortable too. Handling is great and looks too.Now coming to the cons.The shifting of gears is a bit difficult sometimes as shifting is not smooth sometimes.The headlights are just terrible at night. Instrument cluster not feature loaded atleast should have a gear shift indicator. Side view mirrors not wide enough.Being light in weight bike is not stable after crossing 100km/hr speed.

    I have driven it to kullu from chandigarh, and regularly to sundernagar on uphill drives very comfortable and power packed bike. I have also driven it to jalandhar and back really confidence given bike, throttle response is quick which saves and helps in instant overtaking of trailor or long vehicles. I have got 38 kmpl on regular driving which includes fast driving, highway and city driving. Bike looks stunning, high on performance, needs little to no maintenance. I love it overall. I do not like the dashboard looks, although it has plenty of information trip 1 and 2, odo, time, average, driving fluctuations in average, digital speed and rpm reading with fuel indicator. But i will like clock and average to appear with odo reading and it should be visible during day. But not a big issue. If you drive it between 45 to 70kmph at stable speed fuel consumption will drop i have generated average of 52 kmpl too and normally 42 kmpl without much effort. Lovely bike from yamaha.

    Yamaha has one of the most understanding and imperial salesperson with them. One of them at green yamaha - faridabad , gave me a complete overview of the bike fz25 without asking for the details , generally you've to ask for the details for the bike.Riding posture is fantastic on this machine , its power giving it a perfect start and a wonderful push all over the ride and its magnificent looks could turn anyone on. Eye-catcher , that's what it is.Basic service under a minimal cost , low maintenance and a glide to ride on....Pros-Led headlamp Aho Disc breaks High fuel efficiency And many more...Cons- abs could knock out every bike around it.

    This review is totally made after doing the test drive of yamaha fz25. Let me talk about the pro's first:

    1. Overall look is superb.

    2. Engine is smooth.

    3. Bike is handy (in terms of weight)

    4. Affordable price range

    5. Yamaha's common broad tire size

    6. Riding comfort is good.

    7. Pillion seat is comparatively in a normal height

    Cons:

    1. Rear tire cover (like fz ver 2) missing which can cause person on the pillion seat affected with dirt during rain.

    2. The front tire mudguard can be a bit more lengthier downwards (rain water will throw to the engine) and cleaning will be a daily routine to you during rainy season.

    3. Lack of crash guards.

    3. The driving seat is broader which will affect the stopping of vehicle in case of emergency.

    3.Engine power is not visibly felt (even if we are riding a 250cc, we didn't feel even the power of a pulsar 180). Hence performance wise 3/5.

    4. As similar to yamaha's fz, it don't have a visor in front which will affect the rider as he will be a resistance against wind/weather conditions.

    5. Chain looks so lean (similar to fz ver 2). Worried whether a 250cc can deliver the power through it.

    In total,

    The price is competent to others.

    Performance wise fz25 is not a big deal.

    Riding comfort is better than other similar range bikes.

    The bike can be used even by a novice driver.

    Beast mode when you are on it. Absolute killer in this segment. I just love the pickup and the rush it creates when the throttle gets opened. One of the finest machine i have seen so far. Mileage: 30 (due to my riding style: most of the time i will be riding it in 80's or 90's) pickup: try yourself to understand the behavior of the beast. Maintenance: pocket-friendly compared to re (owned it before with the hole in the pocket). Negative: service center guys need to be aware of rectifying the problem and fixing the same. Not necessary to bring yamaha engineers to fix the minor problem. I am definitely not a yamaha guy or a sales executive to promote this. It's my personal opinion based on my experience on this bike.

    pros: 1) value for money product 2) excellent low and mid range power and torque band for outstanding city commute 3) good road presence 4) vibrations are very few and ideal for touring as well 5) stable at highway speeds doesn't affected by the crosswinds 6)Apt for short rider's cons: 1) very very poor headlight's as it doesn't throw the lights far and broad so it's a mandatory to have aux lights 2)tank looks beefy but 14ltr is less compared to it's looks should have offered bigger to get more tank range 3) instrument cluster is too small and bit outdated compared to R15V3 cluster and you can't view all details at d same time like avg economy,time, trip. only one thing you can view at a time 4) Indicator's should have been LEDs 5) Should have come with liquid cooling 6) only few showrooms provide good service others don't do justice.

    Bought the yamaha fz 25 abs model in february 2019. Considering the highly rated reviews on youtube and feedback given by other riders on various blogs about this particular motorcycle, my expectations were high however within 3 months of use i can safely conclude that the yamaha fz 25 is a piece of junk at rupees 1.55 lakh on road price. There was already a clicking sound from the tappets of the engine within 1 month of use. I assure readers of this review that i have been a rider for almost 25 years and well aware of the restrictions of the initial run in period. I have not exceeded the mandated speed limits during the first 1000 kms run-in period. My first experience of yamaha service center was pathetic since the (so claimed) well trained service engineers at the yamaha authorized centers were not even able to open the tappet covers on the engine and instead damaged them during the process by not using the correct t tools. After a third visit to the yamaha authorized service center the yamaha engineers claimed to have fixed the tappet sounds but it still exists. There is also a clunky cluttering sound which starts emanating from the engine once you have reached the 45 - 60 kmph which is completely unexpected from a brand new bike. As per yamaha authorized service engineers this sound of clanking and clicking is a natural sound of the engine and they actually made me drive another very old rickety fz 25 just to prove their point. (honestly this is a nightmare and a pathetic joke). I read articles where people claim a top speed of 130 -- 140 kmph on this bike but i have my doubts since the engine on this bike starts rattling and their are serious vibrations once you reach 80 - 90 kmph. A new problem which started recently was the ignition key getting stuck when you try to withdraw it after locking the bike. Again yamaha engineers said it will be fine if we put some oil in it which did not happen. Since the bike is under warranty i asked them to replace the ignition lock set which they flatly refused. Overall if you can live with clattering and clicking highly irritating sound coming from the engine everyday that you this bike then go ahead and buy this motorcycle. The gear shifts during downshifting are inaccurate, hard and a real pain due to lack of a slipper clutch which is expected from a motorcycle in this price range. The front headlights which are led are an absolute joke and visibility is extremely poor (god knows what yamaha designers were thinking when designing this motorcycle). Good powerful headlights are extremely crucial on a motorcycle for riders overall safety specially at night. The only positive about this motorcycle is the amazing torque which comes at just 6000 rpm and gives you that sheer adrenaline rush which i understand is the top selling point of this motorcycle. A water cooled engine would have been an icing on the cake but as of now you have a air-cooled engine thanks to the cost cutting techniques from yamaha. The dual abs in the new 2019 model does a fantastic job at braking but the rear wheel braking definitely needs more more teeth and aggression. In terms of colour options you just get a very limited choice out of which the 2 matt finish are definitely not appealing and feels very cheap due to the all round matt finish plastic. When buying a new fz 25 abs you just don't get the feel of taking home a spanking shiny brand new bike if you have chosen the matt finish colour option. I think yamaha is trying to cut cost in the paint division too by restricting the colour options. Both the riding position,rider seat and also the pillion seat is broad and very comfortable unlike many other bikes and job well done by yamaha. The instrument cluster is basic and outdated and shows limited options on screen, you need to make multiple clicks on the switch to get additional information. It also does not have a gear indicator on the instrument console and with just 5 gears it may not be too confusing but definitely would have been more easier for riders when driving in heavy traffic. If you look around and understand the term value for money, then there are definitely other better options available in the market. You just need to do some r&d and maybe shell out some more cash but in the long run you won't regret your decision and the riding pleasure will nullify your pain of spending the extra... Ride safe and always wear your helmet..

    Riding experience is awesome . Comfort & looks are excellent. Pickup is also good in its segment . Worth to buy this machine . I rode this bikes initial version in 2013 & really riding experience was first class . Now overall bike has been upgraded . Soon going to take test ride . Fz 25 bhp seems less as compared to its sibling fz 125 cc.
