The new trademark hints that the company might be planning a new model in its famous FZ lineup. However, it is yet no clear whether the company is planning a new model or just a variant with the FZ-X nameplate.

If rumours are to be considered, the company might be planning an Adventure Tourer motorcycle which will be based on the popular FZ 25 platform. Seeing the rising demand for entry-level adventure motorcycles in India, it won't be a surprise if Yamaha in fact comes out with a small ADV based on the FZ 25 platform.

For the record, the FZ 25 range features a BS 6-compliant 249 cc, air-cooled, SOHC, single-cylinder engine which develops 20.5 bhp of maximum power at 8000 rpm and 20.1 Nm of peak torque at 6000 rpm. The transmission option includes a 5-speed gearbox.

If at all Yamaha is working on the motorcycle, FZ25 based adventure bike may receive features such as a tall windscreen, taller suspension, knuckle guards (as on FSZ 25), wider seats, front set footpegs, and more ADV inspired bits.
