We all know that the current Fz 16 bike can be plonked with a bigger engine. The current Fz 16 chassis is underexploited to a large extent by putting a puny 150cc engine. It can cope the forces of a single cylinder 250cc engine with ease.
With the existing fazer 250cc engine, i don't think its a good idea for Yamaha to launch the vehicle because of the similar figures of pulsar 220 (a little more for yammie though). Then Yamaha have to change the rear brake to disc for better stopping power. They have to change the existing Chinese toy look alike console of Fz 16 to a better one. They can otherwise take the console from R 15. As it is touted as a semi tourer than outright street bike, they have to increase the wheel base. Now the Yamaha Fz 25 can hit the road.

Ride safe, wear helmet.
