25 Speculative Render Speculation: Yamaha R25 to take on the Honda CBR250R?

2011 Yamaha R15 Speculative Render

Now, this is a big, big story if it turns out to be true. And one of ICB’s readers Dileep Anirudh gave us the heads up. What we’re about to publish might warm many a Indian motorcycle enthusaist’s heart. Yamaha, apparently is all set to take on the likes of the Honda CBR250R and the Kawasaki Ninja 250R with an all new 250cc motorcycle called the R250.

While VisorDown is carrying an image of what appears to be the “facelifted R15″ that was spotted testing in India a while ago, we aren’t yet sure about whether this motorcycle indeed is the 250cc Yamaha R25 since we have no official information from Yamaha regarding the same. That said, Yamaha should want to enter the 250cc motorcycle space in the market, as displayed by the Honda CBr250R is huge to say the least.

Now, Honda India plans to sell about 30,000 units per year. On the other hand, the R15, though being cheaper and a smaller motorcycle sells in a smaller quantity than Honda projects for the CBR250R. All said, we’re waiting with bated breath if Yamaha indeed is planning a 250cc motorcycle for the Indian as well as the global motorcycle market. Until then, you would be well advised to take this piece of news with a fistful of salt.
