The bike was also recently spotted getting tested on the Indian roads hinting that Yamaha is seriously mulling over the launch of the XSR 250. The bike is expected to hit the showrooms by the festive season of 2021. It will be a direct rival to the likes of the Husqvarna Svartpilen 250, Vitpilen 250 and KTM 250 Duke. As far as pricing goes, expect it to range somewhere between 1.60 lakh to 1.70 lakh (ex-showroom).

Goes without saying, in order to keep the pricing competitive, the XSR 250 could share some of the key components such as the suspension, powertrain, and other elements with the present FZ25 bikes. The wheels, the box-section swingarm, as well as the telescopic fork are most likely to be borrowed from the existing 250 cc Yamaha motorcycle.

Expect it to sport the same 249cc air/oil-cooled engine from the FZ25. It is a fuel-injected single-cylinder engine that is good enough to churn out the same 20.5 bhp of maximum power and 20.1 Nm of peak torque. The transmission option is likely to be a five-speed gearbox. The engine may or may not be tuned specifically for the XSR 250.
