Yamaha has unvield their adventure bike a few months back. The FZ 25 was bought to the market as a premium 250cc commuter but looking at the shift in the market the company has deciede to give it certain cosmetic changes which keeps it up-to-date with the current trends as well as push it towards the community of the adventure troureres. Lets take at look at the BS6 Yamaha FZ-S 25 and its price.
BS6 Yamaha FZ-S 25 is the special variant and it is priced at Rs 1.57 lakhs. This is however only Rs 5,000 more than the FZ25 which does not come with the few touring add-ons. The BS6 model of the bike does become overall 15,000 more expensive but that does translate into more than just a BS6 engine upgrade.
The bike that is seen in the above image is the FZ 25 which is a slightly lower variant.
What are the Changes?
