Did we just here you all go shouting Yippie? and yes that might just be a correct reaction to this. The Yamaha Indonesia has started teasing the date June 6th in Indonesia and the word from our friends at Indonesia is a happy one, and that is Yamaha is indeed launching the hugely awaited naked sibling of the spectacularly successful Yamaha YZF-R25.
Expected to be based on the design footprints of the stunning MT-125 naked's, the MT-25 will see the heart of the R25 doing duty on it meaning that the 250cc parallel tin will have lesser weight and more naked awesomeness to throw around for some serious hooliganism around streets. It will fight opposite the Honda CB300F and the Suzuki GW250F in the naked quarter liter segment of the Indonesian market.
As of now, it is not sure if, just like the R3 coming out from the R25 there will also be a MT-03 or not, though we reckon there might just be one, however, R3's main market US of A has never been a naked friendly (only in bikes that is ;) ) market. However, speculations aside, most of the clarifications will only come on June 6th when the MT-25 debuts at Indonesia.
CLoser home, Yamaha India is still unsure what to launch here among the R25 and the R3 thus expecting the MT-25 or the MT-03 (if and when it launches Internationally) to launch in india anytime soon seems to be just wishful thinking as of now. We hope Yamaha steps up its love for the Indian market a few notches soon enough. Hey we are also a Big market Yamaha, dont keep us waiting ;)
