The motorcycle is seen without an ABS ring and now clearly shows its side fairing. The same is linked to a raised Black front fascia that holds the single headlight unit of the motorcycle.
In order to keep the costs under check, Yamaha is expected to skip the twin headlight setup and use the same headlight as the FZ25 on the Fazer 250. The motorcycle was spotted by Instagram user Malkeet2017 and uses most of the parts from the FZ25 itself.

Yamaha Fazer 250 Spotted While Testing in DelhiThe bike was seen wrapped in Grey shade while the fairing has been kept away from the engine bay. The sitting position seemed quite right on the Fazer 250. It it yet to be seen from the front as no decision on its fascia can be made through these images. It might get a single headlamp design like the Gixxer SF but we would love to see twin-LED headlights like the Yamaha R15 V3.0 or 2017 Honda CBR150R.

Yamaha hinted at the existence of a faired motorcycle some time back while this recently surfaced image confirms the presence of a FZ25 based motorcycle. The bike was seen running on a highway and only rear three quarter view for the same was captured. The bike looks amazing in this livery as Matt Grey suits the body design of the mature Fazer 250. The fairing looks simply amazing from this view and ignites the hope for an even better front fascia. Some reports even claim that it may not carry the Fazer moniker and gets the Yamaha FZ25R name for the Indian market. The motorcycle will most probably carry the same engine tune as smaller 150cc counterparts also share the same engine with exactly same output values. This makes the 249cc, oil cooled engine good for 20.9 PS and 20 Nm of torque. It will use the same 5-speed gearbox and could claim a better top speed as well as fuel efficiency due to improved aerodynamics. Fazer 250 will most probably carry a dual headlight setup.

Yamaha will keep the cost under check by sharing most parts with the FZ25. The rear end, exhaust, fuel tank and even the tyres are same as FZ25 while the front face will clearly differentiate both the cousins.
The motorcycle is expected to launch with a starting price of INR 1.29 lakh while Yamaha may launch the ABS version later for the Indian market. The cost of ABS could fall between INR 10,000-14,000. Yamaha Fazer 250 is expected to be launched in India around the festive season of 2017.
