Yamaha unveiled the BS6 FZ 25 in February and the new motorcycle was scheduled to be launched in the country in April. However, that did not happen thanks to the Covid-19 pandemic. Now, as some form of normalcy is restored in the nation, Yamaha has finally launched the more eco-friendly FZ 25.

The BS6 Yamaha FZ 25 captured in the video is black. The new motorcycle is also available in one more colour option called the Racing Blue. The updated headlight assembly of the new FZ 25 looks fantastic. It imparts a much more aggressive and menacing style to the bike.

Some of the other key features of the BS6 Yamaha FZ 25 are:
- Engine cowl
