Although we are still to get the taste of Yamaha’s highly anticipated quarter-litre sportsbike, the R25, people in Indonesia are already readying themselves for receiving the delivery of the product. Yamaha has also released a television commercial of the R25 in Indonesia.
The video begins with a man walking towards his Yamaha R25 when he sees other men suffering from daily problems in life. But after reaching his motorcycle, he zooms past the city refusing to fall prey to his daily chores and goes to a place where he will have control of his own life. The video ends with a tag: YZF R25 – Revs Your Ego.
The Yamaha R25 is the latest addition to the Japanese manufacturer’s sports class YZF family. It will be powered by a new 249cc twin-cylinder liquid-cooled engine that would produce 35 bhp and 22.6Nm of torque. Power would be transferred to the tarmac through a six-speed gearbox. The bike comes with new high-compression (11.6:1) engine which uses Yamaha’s DiASil (Die casting Aluminum-Silicon) cylinders for better heat dissipation and lighter weight.
Yamaha will have price its R25 smartly to stand stiff competition from KTM’s RC390 and Honda CBR250R. Also, local manufacturers like Bajaj and Hero MotoCorp are on the verge of introducing their 400cc and 250cc motorcycles respectively and will have home ground advantage.
