Yamaha FZ25 First Ride Review

2008! Some year that was, for Yamaha. Back to back launches of the R15 and the FZ16 brought in lot of success and adulation for Yamaha. But instead of going on the offensive, the company was content in keeping to the 150cc segment. It did not bother to go beyond that until the launch of the R3 in 2015. But that too bombed, despite being a great motorcycle. It was just too expensive to make sense to the Indian enthusiast. Lessons were learnt, we believe, and Yamaha launched the FZ25, the company's first ever 250cc bike in India at a compelling sticker price of ₹ 1,19,500 (ex-showroom, Delhi). And so here we are, riding the motorcycle in the serene locales of Goa. Here are the first impressions of the all-new Yamaha FZ25 fresh from a beach shack in Goa.No matter how many times one goes to Goa, one can never get tired of it. It is just so beautiful. And also, the food! Goa is home to some of the best seafood that you can.... Apologies for getting carried away! It is rather difficult for my mind to register that I was sent here for an assignment and not a holiday. Right then, getting on to the task at hand!
