Yamaha to launch bigger Fazer

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.

  3. Surajit I have been an active participant of online communities and motorcycling world for over 6 years now and never get bored/tired of these. Plus the Fazer 250 is one bike, that I might just actually buy.

  4. well the bike is one of the old designs by yamaha they r not going to bring this baby out soon. all the lovely stoaries of these big type machines have gone down. untill and unless they dont come out from the company in reall we should think that they r in the pipeline maybe after good couple of headaches to the comanies boss then they will surely bring the babys out of there whole.

    I wish them all the very best. and good luck.

  7. Go for LUNA, Suits your requirement.
    Both the above bikes are for not for mileage.

  8. Punter,

    Nice joke. I actually burst out laughing on ur advice to Vaibhav. Seems you want to push him back 10 the good ol’ 80s, huh? Don’t push him to LUNA. He might become LUNAR.

  9. i really wating 4 dis bike
    bt plz confrm when dis bike wiill b launche

  10. Guys,

    I love cruisers. Am trying out a friend’s 750 cc single Cruiser classic with gearbox on right like Enfield. Same British styling.

    Other than that: Yamaha 1100 Cruiser twin is my dream…the beats…..

    The Fazer 250 is Ok. looks good, better than the Honda 250cc or at least looks so.

    The TVS 250 Apache from its pre-launch specs is a winner due to its Racing Proto offered in 650cc and upwards only overseas. Plus it’s got 30 Horses more than the entry Honda, Yamaha, Hyosung carb and others.

    The winner seems to be price and India is always value and price driven. TVS has got this right looks like it. They just need Robin Uthappa to ride it and the rest as they say is over the ropes…..call it the great Indian rope trick.

    Thanks for reading.
