Associated Motorways Private Limited, Yamaha’s authorised distributor, set up the stall.

Yamaha’s authorised distributor in Sri Lanka, Associated Motorways Private Limited, showcased the bike. It employs a 249cc SOHC single cylinder engine with fuel injection. The power plant puts out 20.9 PS of power at 8,000 rpm and 20 Nm of torque at 6,000 rpm. The engine works in tandem with a 5-speed transmission. The Bluecore technology increases combustion and cooling efficiency, and reduces power loss. Fuel injection helps in easier cold starts, reduced emission and improved throttle input.

The diamond type frame is suspended by telescopic forks at the front and a monocross at the rear. The bike comes to a halt using 282 mm front disc and a 220 mm rear disc. The brakes miss out on ABS. The headlamp and tail light are LED units, and the bike comes with a fully digital instrument cluster. The 17-inch alloy wheels roll on 100-section front and 140-section rear tubeless tyres. The fuel tank capacity is 14 litres, and the bike weighs 148 kg, kerb.

In India, Yamaha launched the touring iteration of the bike, the Fazer 25 this day. The Fazer gains 6 kg over this motorcycle due to the addition of the fairing. The mechanical underpinnings of the bike are the same as the FZ25.
