The Yamaha FZ25 was launched in the country on the 16th of this month; at an introductory price of NPR 3,44,900. It comes in three colour options – Ballistic Blue, Warrior White and Knight Black.

The powerplant produces a maximum power of 20.9 PS at 8,000 rpm and a peak torque of 20 Nm at 6,000 rpm. Yamaha has fine-tuned and optimized the engine for the Nepalese traffic environment; primarily at the intake, exhaust, and the ignition system. The powerplant nestles inside a diamond type frame, and pairs with a 5-speed transmission.
For suspension, the bike uses telescopic fork at the front and a monocross unit at the rear. The headlight and tail light are LED units and the fuel tank capacity stands at 14 litres. The motorcycle features a fully digital instrument cluster with fuel consumption indicator.
The wet weight of the bike is 148 Kg, and the seat height is 795 mm. The motorcycle rolls on 17-inch alloy wheels that are shod with a 100-section front and a 140-section rear tubeless tyres. Yamaha has targeted the motorcycle at biking enthusiasts in the age group of 20s to mid-30s.
