    Of course. Just make sure the engine oil level is on the upper mark, don't give full throttle, and change gears before redline always. Change to 6th gear as soon as possible, without engine lugging.

    Well, FZ-s as well as FZ25 don't have 6th gear

    Sorry buddy. I meant 5th. Overdrive. And even 6th gear, liquid cooled, low compression engines like CBR 250 will get worn out faster if you redline often. Stay 2000 rpm below redline, and you will be fine, is the rule I follow for my bike.

    From what I've heard, the FZ25 is way better fun with 5 gears, it's more tractable. It can pull from 50 to 140 kmph in 5th gear.
    Cbr250 needs minimum 60kmph to pull in 6th. For smooth riding, guys shift to 6th only after 75.

    So is it possible to take it for long rides say 600-800 kms?
    Yes, you can. We did Hyderabad - Goa - Hyderabad with pillion on a Gixer, which is 150cc machine. I think Fz V2 could easily do 800 KM's.

    800 Kms for a weekend trip? Woah!

    You can do that even on a 150 cc bike. In 2011 I have been to Goa which is roughly 600 Kms from my place on a pulsar 150 as well, so don't worry.
    And now I go on my KTM and of course, the fatigue that you face in a higher cc bike for such rides is much lesser.

    Hmm yeah 800kms on a day wud be overkill I guess. I normally travel by bus whenever I need to cover 800 kms in a day. Otherwise Car is a better option I guess. The only problem witb car is tht mine is an old one and I dont know when it will break down.

    But yeah better to opt for bus i guess.

    ----consecutive posts auto-merged-----

    But 600 kms definitely I might do
