The Japanese motomaker, Yamaha, debuted the concept of its much­wanted 250cc motorcycle, R25, at Tokyo Motor Show last month. The debut of the R25 exhilarated the motorcycle enthusiasts across the globe, however the company did not share a word over its introduction in the market. Interestingly, a Japanese motorcycle magazine, Young Machine, recently came up with an spy image of the production version of R25. Being a concept, the showcased model featured an air intake at the place of headlamp along with the Akrapovic exhaust setup. Both these concept specified features are replaced on the published image with the iconic twin headlamps and standard exhaust that looks similar to that of R15, make the claim undeniable.

 

The reveal of the model has also shown the possibility of R25 in the near future in international markets, though Indian market might get the bike on a later stage. The sharp and compact design language of Yamaha is also prominent on the R25 which is inspired from its eldest sibling, YZF­ R1. The dynamic quarter­litre motorcycle will be powered by a parellel­twin cylinder 250cc unit, expected to produce around 35 BHP. To keep the overall weight down, Yamaha has employed a tubular chassis frame instead of pressed steel perimeter frame. Telescopic front shock and mono cross suspension at rear carry out the road handling duties on R25. The bike will be equipped with the disc brake at both the ends but ABS is not certain yet.

Yamaha's R­series motorcycles have been 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. On the other hand, the tough competition from the segment players like Honda CBR 250R, Kawasaki Ninja 300 and Duke 390 will make it a tough bite to eat for Yamaha. However,we may get a chance to witness the presence of R25 in our country soon as company is likely to showcase the model at upcoming 2014 AutoExpo India.
