Yamaha to roll out FZ25 in Nepal soon

- Post Report, Kathmandu

Aug 11, 2017-Morang Auto Works (MAW) Enterprises, the authorised distributor of Yamaha two-wheelers in Nepal, will be launching the new Yamaha FZ25 in Nepal soon. It is the first 250cc motorcycle in Yamaha’s stable.

Launched with the slogan ‘Naked Street Fighter’, FZ25 was launched in the Indian market earlier this year. The bike is known as the cheapest motorcycle in the 250cc segment in India. It is expected that the price of FZ25 will be comparatively low in Nepal as well.

The new FZ25 will bring more excitement in the FZ line up in Nepal as the latest motorcycle from Yamaha will have a big 250cc engine, more style and feature, according to a press statement issued by MAW.

Yamaha manufactured the new FZ25 keeping in mind, the road conditions of Nepal and India. The motorcycle has a wheelbase of 1360mm and ground clearance of 160mm. Although Yamaha has said FZ25 was manufactured “for city touring”, the ground clearance offered by the bike makes it ideal for off-road rides. The high ground clearance also suits the roads of Nepal, which is filled with potholes.

One of the most attractive features of the motorcycle is its fuel tank, which draws inspiration from Yamaha MT-03. 

The tank gives the FZ25 a big motorcycle look and feel, reads the press statement. Fill the 14 litre tank up and you can set off on your journey without worrying about running out of fuel. Despite having a big engine, Yamaha claims the motorcycle can cover a distance of 43 km on every litre of fuel. 

Powering the FZ25 is a 249cc single cylinder, oil cooled, fuel injected engine which produces 20.06bhp at 8000rpm and 20nm torque in 6000rpm. It has a 5 speed gear box. It also has a 282mm disk brake at the font and 257mm disk brake at the back.

The motorcycle, which weighs 147 kg, is also suitable for vertically challenged people, as it has a low seating position of 795mm. With a length of 2015mm, width of 770mm and height of 1075mm, it is an accommodating motorcycle for everyone. The FZ25 has a turning radius of 2.5 metres, reads the press statement.

Sharing parts is part of the reason why the FZ25 is able to be priced aggressively. The FZ25 uses the same tried and tested diamond tube frame seen on previous FZ motorcycles. The headlight gives it a bold look while its wide handle bar allows the rider to be seated comfortably. Other notable features of the FZ25 is its split seat, aluminium grab bar, midship exhaust and fully digital instrument cluster.

The fully digital instrument cluster shows a wide array of information such as two trip metres, fuel reserve trip metre, real time fuel economy, average fuel economy and time. The motorcycle also has the latest  automatic headlight on feature, reads the press statement.
