Yamaha FZ250 is said to be one of motorcycles that Yamaha Indonesia once considered could replace their existing Yamaha Scorpio 225cc. Nobody knows why this plan never been realized.
Not too long ago there was a rumor telling that in this year Yamaha India will start to produce it’s upgraded version. This new FZ250 will be equipped with an air cooled DOHC 250cc engine. With Yamaha fuel injection system, this engine could throw up its power up to 24bhp (the old FZ is 21bhp) that could take this motorcycle into 160kph with reasonable mileage (around 25kpl).
Since FZ250 never been imported to Indonesia I only could see from its photo, shows how the old FZ250 looks too skinny (like the old Yamaha Scorpio) and doesn’t represent its breed as a derivative of the mighty Yamaha FZ1. That’s why there is estimation that the new model will comes with series of FZ signatures like big tank, muscle forks and swing arms and big tire.

What are the odds this bike to be imported to Indonesia?
As we know, until now Yamaha Indonesia doesn’t have their naked version of 250cc motorcycles, while Kawasaki by now have theirs naked Z250, and Suzuki had launched their very own naked GW250 bike.
Off course, Indonesian naked bike enthusiasts desperately need a 250cc motorsport, a bigger version of the existing Yamaha Byson FZ16 150cc. I think this up-graded version of FZ250 will be the perfect candidate to reincarnate as the new Yamaha Byson 250.
But, if it is true that Yamaha FZ250 will be released in India right on this year, it seems like there is little chance for hoping that Yamaha Indonesia will release it here soon. In my prediction in next year Yamaha Indonesia still will be occupied by theirs new boys toy, a brand new 250cc motorsport to hold the sales of Kawasaki Ninja 250 and Honda CBR250R. So, Byson 250 still be questionable.
