Yamaha R25 250cc bike production version leaked?

on

The Yamaha R25 concept motorcycle was revealed at last year’s Tokyo Motor Show and ever since, many renders on how the production version of the 250cc motorcycle will look like have been released. Young Magazine from Japan is carrying an image of the Yamaha R25 on its cover and the magazine claims that the bike pictured is the production version of the Yamaha R25.

According to the picture, the bike shows off twin headlamps, a full fairing, twin seats and an upswept exhaust. On the whole, the bike looks like a grown up Yamaha R15 Version 2.0 and no we are not complaining. Things get more exciting under the skin as the fairing encloses a 250cc twin cylinder four stroke engine. Since the Yamaha R25 will square off with the Kawasaki Ninja 250R and the Honda CBR 250R, expect power and torque outputs in excess of 25 Bhp and 22 Nm at the very least.

The Yamaha R25 will ditch the Deltabox frame for a tubular frame, the kind of frame that is found on the Ninja 250R and CBR 250R. The tubular frame will allow Yamaha to cut costs and make the R25 more price competitive. Fuel injection, liquid cooling for the engine, a 6 speed manual gearbox and a monoshock suspension at the rear are the other major components on the Yamaha R25.

If Yamaha wants to save its reputation as a high performance motorcycle maker in the Indian market, it will have to launch the R25 at the earliest as Yamaha loyalists have been waiting for a larger capacity bike for a long time. Yamaha is making India a major export base. Therefore, manufacturing the R25 here makes sense if the brand wants to price the bike well within Rs. 3 lakhs. The bike will be a global model built for emerging as well as developed markets.

    if u want it to be cheap as fk dont expect a dual cylinder …u’ll only get single cylinder…price must be around 2.5-3 lakh with dual cylinder (Y) so it is limited to people atleast who know what a cylinder is will buy….

    I think we can still hope the bike is priced under 2 lakhs because it has tubular frame which can cut of costs and one more main reason is duke 390 abs is only priced 212000rs only (on road) and the upcoming pulsar 375 is also priced around 1.7 – 2.0 lakhs so the Yamaha should lunch the bike at 2 lakhs because even the CBR 250 is also at 1.7 lakhs and even the ninja is around the same price tag so it will be within 2.2 lakhs because of the dual cilinder.even because of the delay it will price resonabaly. Gyz don’t worry it will not make you cry (price). Just believed it
