YoungMachine Magazine has, time and again, presented some really appealing artistic renders of next-generation motorcycles and their latest work is equally stunning. This time, they’ve imagined the next-generation Yamaha YZF-R25 which, as you already know, is identical to the YZF-R3 that is sold in select markets. The render is a major step-up over the current generation Yamaha YZF-R3 and we really hope that the actual, production spec motorcycle looks equally radical. The rest of the Yamaha YZF portfolio, including the new 2018 YZF-R15 V3.0, has received a complete makeover.
The design, as digitally imagined, will draw styling cues from the new generation Yamaha YZF family. Upfront, the rendered motorcycle features a pair of full-LED headlight which are somewhat identical to the illuminator on the new 2018 Yamaha YZF-R15 V3.0. The LED headlights are placed on either side of the faux RAM air intake. The fairing is also imagined to have revised-design with sharper cuts. The fuel tank design in the render has been revised too and so has been the rear panel. The new rear panel draws inspiration from the new generation YZF-R15 V3.0. Other noticeable feature is an upside-down telescopic front fork instead of the conventional unit on the current generation YZF-R3. The new generation YZF-R15 gets upside down telescopic front forks in the international market and thus it wouldn’t be completely incorrect to expect the same setup in the next generation YZF-R3.
We wouldn’t let our imagination wander too far in terms of mechanical specifications and would expect to see near identical performance numbers (if not marginally higher output) as the current YZF-R3 on the next generation model. So, expect the 321 cc liquid cooled, twin cylinder engine to continue to deliver 41 bhp of maximum power and 30 Nm of peak torque. The engine will continue to use the six-speed transmission.
