The Yamaha Fazer 250 ABS has been launched in Brazil, carries the same design of the Asia-spec FZ25.
Yamaha has taken the design of the Asian FZ25 and launched it in Brazil as the Fazer 250. However, the Brazilian Fazer 250 gets standard ABS and more power. The Fazer 250 in Brazil is priced at 14,990/- Brazilian Real (approximately Rs. 2.97 lakhs).
The Yamaha Fazer 250 ABS is powered by the same 249.5cc single-cylinder motor that powers the Asian FZ25. However, the Fazer 250’s engine is tuned to produce more power and torque. The 249.5cc powerplant belts out 21.6 PS of power and 20.6 Nm of torque as opposed to 20.6 PS of power and 20 Nm of torque that the Asian FZ25 makes. The mill is paired to a 5-speed gearbox.
The Yamaha Fazer 250 ABS gets standard telescopic forks up front and monoshock at the rear. Braking is via discs at both the ends but unlike the Asian FZ25, the Brazilian Fazer 250 gets dual-channel ABS as standard. The Asia-spec FZ25 does not even get ABS as an option. Yamaha has hinted that ABS will be offered on its motorcycles only when it becomes mandatory. The Yamaha Fazer 250 is available in Racing Blue, Matt Red, Eclipse Black and White Crystal colours.
The R15 maker has been selling the Fazer 250 in the naked street-fighter form since the last decade or so and have finally launched the third generation model (after seven odd years) which carries over the design of the Asia-spec FZ25. Luckily for Brazilian bike enthusiasts, they don’t get the Fazer 25 which gets the design of the year award! (sarcasm alert).
