Yamaha FZX 250 Zeal (export version)

The Yamaha FZX 250 Zeal was first introduced in 1991 and remained in Yamaha's lineup until 1999. Initially, the motorcycle was intended for the domestic Japanese market, but for some time the model was available in other countries - the export version was distinguished by the presence of a front fairing and double headlights. In 1992, the Yamaha FZX 250 Zeal underwent a slight restyling, which affected some elements of the motorcycle (a significant difference from the old version - chrome mufflers) and introduced new colors. 1999 was the last year of production of the model, after which it was finally discontinued and did not receive further development. Subsequently, all Japanese motorcycle manufacturers abandoned the concept of small-capacity 4-cylinder motorcycles, making a bias towards cheaper, simpler and more reliable one- or two-cylinder engines.

The Yamaha Zeal 250 is based on the Genesis concept inline 4 engine from the sports version Yamaha FZR 250. It was reconfigured and derated, but it still remained high-revving - maximum power of 40 hp. reached at 12,000 rpm. The exhaust system was different from the sports versions of Yamaha at the time - 4-2-2, without the EXUP system.

Other features of the Yamaha FZX250 Zeal include an aluminum diagonal frame, disc brakes at the front and rear, simple suspensions in the form of a conventional telescopic fork at the front and a double shock absorber at the rear, a 6-speed gearbox, a 15-liter fuel tank and 164 kg of curb weight.
