Design and Style

Yamaha YZF-R25 borrows some design clues from its bigger siblings R1 and R6. The borrowings include the reverse-slant twin headlights along with the pilot light in between that imparts a sharper look. An air duct present in between the lights is reminiscent of the M1 Moto GP, a racer bike. While the LED rear lights and shift indicator are perfectly identical to those found in the Yamaha YZF-R1. The bike uses the tubular diamond frame that offers easy to use ergonomics. A multi-fold wraparound full fairing gives the R25 a muscular profile. The edgy design of the fuel tank carries forward the R-series language and subtle knee recess. The bike looks bulkier than it is in reality and can be easily mistaken as 600cc motorcycle. The stubby muffler and Y-spoke alloy wheels gives the R25, a unique look. The overall look of R25 is quite impressive and pleasant that turns heads of many masses.

Instrument Panel

Yamaha YZF-R25 comes with a LCD instrument console that features a digital speedometer, digital dual trip meter, digital fuel-gauge, odometer and indicators for pass-light, low fuel and low oil. It has a white based, analogue tachometer along with an illuminating red colored needle. The panel also features a revv limiter light for better illumination.

Dimensions and Fuel Tank Capacity

The R25 comes with a length of 2090 mm, width of 720 mm and a height of 1135 mm as its dimensions. It weighs around 166 Kg. The bike features a chunky fuel tank with a capacity of 14.3-litres.

Engine and Gearbox

Yamaha YZF-R25 is powered by a 249cc, liquid-cooled engine which pumps out a maximum power of 35.5 bhp at 12000 rpm and a maximum torque of 22.1 Nm at 10000 rpm. This 2-cylinder, 8-valve, 4-stroke, DOHC engine is mated to a six speed manual transmission and a wet, multi-plate clutch system. It has a bore and stroke of 60 and 44.1 respectively.

Brakes and Suspension

The R25 has 298 mm front disc and 220 mm rear disc brakes for effective braking. The telescopic suspensions at the front and swing-arm at the back makes the R25 perfect for uneven roads.

Ride and Handling

The bike has wonderful handling characteristics that offers you a fun ride. The extended wheelbase of 1380 mm gives you a perfect stable and safe ride. The high ground clearance of 160 mm exerts awesome off road capabilities. The flawless suspensions works smoothly and efficiently. The perfectly placed handlebar delivers more responsive handling qualities that makes it a rider.


Yamaha YZF-R25 is available in three attractive shades that are Racing Blue, Predator Black and Diablo Red.


The R25 is expected to be available at a price tag of 2.50-2.75 lakhs (ex-showroom, Delhi) may vary. The main rivals of Yamaha YZF-R25 will be the Kawasaki Ninja 300, Honda CBR250R and the KTM RC 390.

Verdict and Comparison

Overall, Yamaha R25 looks like a formidable competitor with its attractive design, advanced features, powerful engine and economic price. Once launched, Yamaha R25 will compete with the likes of Honda CBR250R, Hyosung GT250R, Kawasaki Ninja 300, Suzuki GSR250S (yet to be launched in India) and KTM RC 200/RC 390.

Out of all these entry-level sport bikes, the main rivals of R25 are Honda CBR250R and Ninja 300. Honda CBR250R is powered by a 249.6cc engine, which generates maximum power of 25 BHP at 8500 rpm and 23 NM at 7000 rpm. The engine is mated to a six-speed transmission. Kawasaki Ninja 300 is powered by a 296cc engine, which develops max power and max torque of 39 BHP and 27 NM respectively. The engine of Ninja 300 is also coupled to six-speed transmission.

The price of Honda CBR250R ABS is INR 1.87 lakhs and Kawasaki Ninja 300 is available for INR 3.65 lakhs (ex-showroom, New Delhi, may vary). There is no word on the price of Yamaha R25, but rumours are that it would be priced in the region of 2.50 lakhs to 2.75 lakh rupees. If Yamaha manages to keep the ex-showroom price of R25 around INR 2.5 lakhs, then one thing is for sure, it is going to be a sure-shot hit and will set the sales charts on fire. It will be easily the best selling premium 250cc sport bike in India.

Even for a two cylinder bike this seems to be a little overpriced! An ideal price for the R25 should be 2.5lakhs.

I already inquired about the R25 at the Yamaha authorized dealer in Mumbai and their response was that it's not slated for India but only in Indonesia and Malaysia. So well we'll have to make do with either Ninja300R / KTM RC390 or Honda CBR250R - 300R
