Both the 2020 Yamaha FZ 25 and the FZS 25 draw power from the same 249 cc, air-cooled, SOHC, single-cylinder engine with fuel injection.

The 2020 Yamaha FZ 25 gets styling revisions including the reworked headlamp cluster with bi-functional LED lighting, new negative LCD instrument console, underbelly cowl and a side-stand engine cut-off switch. The muscular stance, bulbous fuel tank, flat handlebar and split seats have been carried over from the older model.
The new Yamaha FZS 25 distinguishes itself from the standard model with the addition of a long visor, gold-finished alloy wheels, and brush guards on the handle grips. It also gets three new colour options - Patina Green, White-Vermillion and Dark Matte Blue. In contrast, the standard FZ 25 comes in Metallic Black and Racing Blue.
The 2020 Yamaha FZ 25 and the FZS 25 share the same hardware comprising telescopic forks at the front and a monoshock at the rear. Braking duties are performed by 282 mm disc at the front and a 220 mm disc at the rear. Dual-channel ABS is offered as standard on the motorcycle. The 250 cc segment has a handful of offerings and the Yamaha FZ 25 competes against the Suzuki Gixxer 250 as well as the Bajaj Dominar 250 in this space.
