Yamaha FZ250 Launched in India
Japanese bike giant, Yamaha has launched the latest iteration in the FZ series- the FZ250 at a price tag of Rs. 1.2 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi).
John Abraham was present at the bike’s launch event in Delhi and as always, he has been a hardcore Yamaha fan. The bike gets compact fairing upfront, full LED headlamp and LED taillamp, LCD instrument cluster and a big fuel tank. Powering the new FZ25 is a 249cc, oil-cooled, single-cylinder engine boosted with fuel injection and Yamaha’s Blue Core technology. It is mated to a 5-speed transmission which churns out 20.6 bhp of power along with 20 Nm of torque.Safety wise, the FZ 250 misses out on ABS which should have been a standard safety feature. Yamaha also has plans to launch the new RS version 3.0 later this year. It has been rumored to have more power and revised styling.
