Yamaha’s Fazer 250iE – Raising Brows in International Market


Raising eyebrows was the South American market 250cc Fazer 250iE that has a strong naked bike look and at least from the rear looks somewhat like the Indian Fazer. Using an air cooled 250cc single it develops 21PS of power at 7500rpm and 20.6Nm of torque at 6500rpm and tips the scales at 137kg. It uses conventional forks up front but a monoshock at the rear. There are no Indian plans for now and Yamaha would only look at producing the bike if it could be made for under a lakh rupees.Also raising eyebrows was the 250cc Fazer 250iE which is sold in South American markets. There are no production plans as of now for this bike and Yamaha is looking at feasibility to manufacture this bike in India for under a lakh of rupees. Of course the naked styling theme will have to be worked upon.
