Yamaha R25 250cc Machine Debuts At 2013 Tokyo Motor Show

Yamaha has kept us waiting really long for its quarter litre machine, but at last it has revealed at least something. At the 2013 Tokyo Motor Show, Yamaha has revealed the Yamaha R25, which all motorcyclists have been eagerly waiting for. The most interesting thing about the R25 is that the looks have been derived from Yamaha’s MotoGP machine, the M1.

Another fact about the R25 is that it is a concept as of now, but yes, the production version would arrive soon. As far as the M1 inspired styling goes, the R25 has to be the most beautiful quarter litre motorcycle I have seen in a long time. Though there is the sharper Kawasaki Ninja 300 or the subtle Honda CBR300R, the R25 is simply brilliant in terms of design and there is no reason why it wouldn’t turn your head.

Performance figures of the Yamaha R25 have not been disclosed yet but going by the rumours and speculations, this 250 cc, fuel injected, liquid cooled machine will have enough potential to give cut throat competition to the 300 cc machines from Honda and Kawasaki.

In Yamaha’s words: “A superbike you can ride every day is the development concept behind the R25, a 250cc sport bike mounting a newly developed in-line 2-cylinder engine on a lightweight, slim and compact chassis that shares its look with the YZR-M1 MotoGP machine. It boasts a powerful and sporty ride in the high rpm range while being easy to handle. The R25 is positioned and offered as an entry-model in the sport bike category for developed markets like Japan and Europe, and as a top performance sport bike for emerging markets, primarily throughout Asia.”

Yamaha has confirmed that initially the motorcycle will be launched in Japan first, followed by Europe and then eventually coming to emerging markets like India.
