The Yamaha R25 has already created enough stir in the motorcycle fraternity- one for the high expectations built around the bike based on the benchmarks created by the R15. Second- a great move by Yamaha to feature the nine time MotoGP World Champion Valentino Rossi alongside the motorcycle.

And once again “The Doctor” and the Yamaha R25 unite in a new video that’s more of a promotional testament from the champion himself. Rossi exclaims “I’ve ridden it for a few hours- but I will never forget the excitement of the test ride. The high performance engine, the smooth handling, light body and the ‘R’ DNA design. The New “R”. The R25!
