Yamaha has not officially confirmed the Yamaha R25 facelift.
A new rendering of the 2017 Yamaha R25 has appeared on the Young Machine, the Japanese motorcycle magazine revealing how the production version might look.
The rendering of the bike follows the design language of the R6 as well as the livery seen in the 2017 Yamaha R3 sold in the United States. The Yamaha R25, manufactured in Indonesia, primarily sells in South-East Asia.
The Yamaha R25 facelift is expected to emerge in a sportier avatar with upside down forks up front and possibly a sportier riding position. Headlamps are expected to be LEDs. Moreover, with the Yamaha R15 v3.0 getting a slipper clutch and R25 aiming to emerge as a sportier motorcycle, it might get that feature as well.
The 249 cc in-line liquid cooled, fuel injected mill works in tandem with a six-speed gearbox. The engine is capable of producing 36 PS of maximum power at 12,000 rpm and 22.6 Nm of peak torque at 10,000 rpm.
