A Japanese motorcycle magazine, Young Machine, recently revealed a spy image of production version of the Yamaha R25. Yamaha showcased the concept of R25 for the first time at Tokyo Motor Show last month. The debut of the R25 boosted the enthusiam among motorcycle enthusiasts across the globe, however the company has not shared a word till now over its introduction. Interestingly, the showcased model featured an air intake at the place of headlamp along with the Akrapovic exhaust setup. While the model that has been publicized in the image sport the iconic twin headlamps and standard exhaust that looks similar to that of R15, make the claim undeniable.



The reveal of the R25 has also shown the possibility that company might introduce the model in near future for foreign markets, though India is supposed to get the motorcycle on a later stage. The sharp and crisp styling of Yamaha is prominent on the R25 that seems inspired from its eldest sibling, YZF­ R1. This quarter­litre motorcycle will be powered by a parellel twin-cylinder 250cc unit, expected to generate nearly 35 BHP. Yamaha has employed a tubular chassis frame rather than using the pressed steel perimeter frame construction for better overall weight of the motorcycle. The telescopic shockers at front and mono cross suspension at rear will do the suspension duties on roads. The motorcycle will feature the disc brake at both the ends but ABS is not confirmed yet.

The R-­series motorcycles from Yamaha have been very well-known for the outstanding riding dynamics of them and no doubt R25 would also be a great performer in its segment. But above all, the price factor majorly drives the success of a product in the Indian market where company will have to play cleverly. However, the motorcycxle will have to contend heavily with other segment players like Honda CBR 250R, Kawasaki Ninja 300 and Duke 390. But the fan following of Yamaha is commendable that will help the company to grow in the segment.
