These clear spyshots from Indonesia fully reveal the production ready Yamaha YZF-R25.
According to the Indonesian media, the R25 is due to be announced later this month or early next month. In markets like Indonesia and India, the R25 will be sold as a top-performance sportsbike, while in developed locations in Europe and Japan, the R25 will become Yamaha’s entry-level sportsbike.
The concept R25 was revealed in November last year at the Tokyo Motor Show, while an Indian debut occurred at the Auto Expo in February this year. Yamaha said that the R25 will be powered by a newly-developed, liquid-cooled, four-stroke, 250cc, in-line two-cylinder, fuel-injected engine mated to a 6-speed gearbox. The Japanese manufacturer declined to disclose the power and torque outputs of this new engine.
Since the concept R25 measured 2,000 mm in length, 720 mm in width and 1,140 mm in height, the production model is expected to measure along these lines. More details of the R25 are expected in the coming days.
