When the test mules of the now revealed version 2.0 of the R15 were undergoing tests, there were wild rumours that said that this was the new 250cc Yamaha. However, despite those rumours having turned out to be untrue, new speculation about Yamaha launching a 250cc motorcycle in the Indian market has yet again come to the fore. Some websites seem to believe that Yamaha will launch the Fazer 250 to take on the Kawasaki Ninja 250R, the Honda CBR250R and the soon to launched Hyosung GT 250. While we are at it we wonder what happened to Suzuki’s plans of launching the GW250. Will the Auto Expo provide the answers? We certainly hope so.
