This could be the production spec Yamaha YZF-R25

Added in: News


We reported in detail when the new Yamaha R25 concept was unveiled at last year’s Tokyo Motor Show in November  2013. The latest concept from Yamaha basically previews the production spec model of the Japanese bike maker’s upcoming production spec 250cc contender.

While it is true that the R25 concept is in the process of spawning the production model, the manufacturer has so far refrained from revealing any details of its soon to be launched model. However, it seems like Yamaha hasn’t been very successful with hiding its upcoming baby from the prying eyes of auto hacks and bike aficionados and if a Japanese two-wheeler magazine, Young Machine, is to be believed, the pics you see here could very well be of the real deal!


The upcoming bike, which would go on sale under the YZF-R25 moniker, could look much like the concept we saw earlier, with the only major difference being the inclusion of a pair of headlights and of course, a typical Yamaha red, white and black livery.

Powering the upcoming Yamaha YZF-R25 coudl be an all new liquid-cooled, four-stroke, 250cc, in-line two-cylinder, fuel-injected motor that is expected to have segment leading performance figures. The engine is likely to come mated to a 6-speed manual gearbox.

Quite obviously, the upcoming Yamaha YZF-R25 will battle it out with the Kawasaki Ninja 250 and even the Kawasaki Ninja 300 in markets like that of our country. 

It may be noted that Yamaha have left many of us with high hopes by previewing the Yamaha YZF-R25 concept. However, it would be interesting if the Japanese bike maker will be a tad too late with coming up with an entry level 250cc contender. What do you feel?

    It’s great that you’re comparing the Yamaha with Mahindra? Well, there are pros & cons of every bike maker. Yamaha is no doubt the best, along with Kawasaki, Honda, Suzuki. They are never comparing themselves to Bajaj, Mahindra or any other bike maker.
    If you don’t know what I meant. Google Yamaha R1, M1, R6. Rest it’s your opinion after all.

    Yamaha is too late to wake up. They should have launched this bike more than two years ago. Their plan in India is baffled. No proper bikes in many segments. Like they are yet to launch an attractive bike in 100 and 125 CC category . Too late and too lazy that’s why taking years to establish. Look at Mahindra! How quick they are.
