Cov­eted Ride

Bike India - - OUR BIKES - — Ravi Chandnani

The Yamaha FZ25 is a scin­til­lat­ing new ma­chine that should have been launched a long time ago. How­ever, it’s bet­ter late than never. I was re­ally look­ing for­ward to the FZ25 as my longterm bike, for three of my col­leagues — Harket, Anosh, and Sau­rabh — had praised this bike quite a lot. And it did not take me long to know why they were in love with this bike.

The FZ25 has an en­gine that is smooth and packs a de­cent punch. Its han­dling is in­cred­i­ble and the sus­pen­sion has been set up just right for our con­di­tions. It is in­deed a nice light­tour­ing ma­chine that han­dles well and is com­fort­able.

I have been rid­ing the bike ev­ery day for nearly 50 kilo­me­tres and I am look­ing for­ward to tak­ing it on a long ride soon. One more thing, the fuel-ef­fi­ciency of this bike is also good for its per­for­mance: it de­liv­ers close to 30 km/l in city and I am cer­tain that it can do bet­ter on the high­way with min­i­mal use of brakes and gearshifts. Un­til next time, ride hard and be safe.
