Fazer 25 deliveries are in full-swing but what levels will it settle down at?
Yamaha Fazer 25 opened to bumper criticism. The faired quarter liter, which is now Yamaha’s flagship motorcycle in the affordable range, has been criticised for its controversial looks and many say that Yamaha has overdone its styling. However, in person, at its launch in August, Fazer 25 looked fairly proportionate and well-rounded big-looking machine to us.
Yamaha promised commencement of bookings from this month onwards and the motorcycle is now already on the roads. Most of the dealerships in major cities of India have commenced deliveries from middle of this month. Pictured on this page are delivery images of the motorcycle from various Yamaha dealerships of India in Chennai, Kolkata etc.
We have already written in our pre-launch article “Fazer 250 Receives 2014 Karizma-Like Negative Comments; But is it Too Early?” about the negative hype which killed the 2014 Karizma range before even hitting the roads. It remains to be seen how will it impact sales of Yamaha’s entry 250. Will Yamaha be able to attain its target of 4000-4500 unit sales monthly or the sibling FZ25 will continue to be the more favoured choice, despite the fact that there is hardly a difference of 8000-10000 between these two bikes on the ex-showroom prices.

Yamaha has not made the Fazer 25 available to the media yet so we are unsure what difference has the new fairing made to the 250 cc’s behaviour. However, you can read our detailed review of the FZ25 considering the basic underpinning is the same.
