    Very disappointed with the design (looks). I hope this type of design does not come to India…..R15 v2 is far more better than this in design.
    Yamaha always rocks and really really hope they don’t make fool of themselves by launching such type of design in India and hope they price it appropriately.

    I hope Yamaha considers the R3, 300cc 42bhp over this R25 for India.

    35.5 bhp from a 250cc twin, now that is called performance engineering. Kudos to Yamaha.

      At what MPG? This is not going to be a fuel sipper but rather a guzzler.
