We have been constantly updating our readers on the upcoming and highly anticipated Yamaha YZF-R25. The bike has been caught several times, sometimes testing on the streets of Indonesia or through spy pictures cropping up on Indonesian websites. Now the wait for fans and enthusiasts will finally be over as Yamaha has announced the release date on the bikeâ€™s Facebook page.
The R25 will be unveiled on May 20 and the page also carries a teaser image showing the bike behind a half shut garage door waiting to come out.
The YZF-R25 will be getting split headlamps, sports fairing and web design alloy wheels. The instrument cluster has a combination of analog tachometer and digital readouts in white backlight similar to the R15. A tubular chassis will likely house a 250cc, liquid cooled, four- stroke, two cylinder engine generating about 35-37PS of power. Exact details are not yet revealed but we also feel that Yamaha may a single cylinder unit instead of two. The engine will be mated to a six-speed transmission.
The bike will be brought to India as Completely Knocked Down (CKD) unit and will jostle for sales with the Kawasaki Ninja 300, Honda CBR250R and the upcoming KTM RC390.
