India Yamaha Motors is planning to launch higher capacity Fazer motorcycle in India, to take on the newly launched Bajaj Pulsar 220 DTSi.
The new bike is expected to have a 250cc four stroke engine and is expected to dethrone Pulsar 220 as the Fastest Indian.
Mr. Sanjay Tripathi, department head (Product Planning & Strategy) of India Yamaha Motor said, “We will have the fastest bike in India and the riding experience is something Indian consumers have never experienced before.”
While the engine configuration and other information is not yet available, India Yamaha Motors is expected to turn to its global portfolio for this launch, where it has a 250cc 4st street motorcycle, known as Fazer/YBR 250 and is currently being sold in several countries.
Fazer/YBR 250 is a fuel injected 250cc four stroke motorcycle, which produces 21bhp @ 8000rpm and 20.70Nm of torque @ 6500 rpm. While we are not quite sure how many changes the Fazer 250 would go through before it is launched in India, we sincerely hope it is as potent as its global counterparts, which in turn would make it the next performance king in India.
