Yamaha likely to launch R25 soon

Already being tested on Indian shores.

Recently, the R3, a larger-capacity motorcycle with the same ‘R’ DNA was spotted testing in India. And interestingly, the differences between R25 and the R3 are minor. What is being developed at Yamaha’s drawing board remains unclear at the moment, but it’s likely that either of the two bikes will make its way to India. Yamaha fans can surely look forward to experiencing Yamaha’s state-of-the-art engineering.

Yamaha YZF-R25: The bike was launched in the Indonesian market last year in May. The styling cues seem to be derived from the R6S, with dual headlights and fairing-mounted mirrors. The bike has a 250cc, four-stroke, liquid-cooled and parallel-twin cylinder engine mated to a six-speed gearbox. The eight-valve and DOHC motor produces 35.5bhp and 2.25kgm of torque. The R25 has a kerbweight of 166kg, and uses telescopic front forks and a monoshock at the rear. A single disc brake is seen up front and at the rear wheel too.

Yamaha YZF-R3: The R3 has the same exterior at the R25 but is equipped with a more powerful 320cc, four-stroke, two-cylinder engine mated to a six-speed gearbox. This advanced engine uses an eight-valve DOHC motor producing a maximum power of 41.4bhp and 3kgm of torque. The bike has a kerbweight of just 169kg. For suspension duty, it uses conventional telescopic forks up front and a monoshock at the rear. For stopping power, Yamaha provides the R3 with a single disc brake up front and at the rear.

There are no more details available at the moment.
