Yamaha Fazer 250 spied again, reveals more details

Yamaha’s upcoming quarter litre sport tourer, the Yamaha Fazer 250 has been spied once again in India. Wheels World have taken a walk-around video of the bike and it reveals some interesting details.
Yamaha has borrowed the LED headlamp from the FZ 25. Air intakes flank the headlamp on both sides. It also gets LED pilot lamps which bridges the headlamp and the fairing. The fairing extends to the top of the headlamp into a big flyscreen. It should help reduce wind-buffeting and ensure fatigue-free long distance riding. The instrument cluster, handlebars and the switchgear are all from the FZ25. The front bulb-type indicators are mounted on the fairing.
The fairing covers the engine only partially and ends with a differently coloured engine cowl. Going by the looks, the footpeg position seem to be the same as the one found in the FZ25 and so is the design of the tail-section, rear wheel and exhaust. The rear tyre hugger and saree guard have also been borrowed from its naked cousin.
The Fazer 250 will employ the same engine as found in the FZ25. The 249cc SOHC engine with oil-cooler punches out 20.9 PS of power at 8,000 rpm and 20 Nm of torque at 6,000 rpm. Fuel injector feeds the fuel to the engine, and a 5-speed gearbox takes care of the transmission duty. The fuel tank can hold 14 litres of juice. The test mule lacks ABS. Expect the fairing to add a few kilos and the bike will be heavier than the 148 kg (kerb) FZ25.
