A teaser from iwantyamahar25.com has shown the date for the launch of the awaited Yamaha R25 which follows the supersports of Yamaha R series. The date is 20th May 2014 and looking at this launch date, this could be the world premiere of the launch of the R25. We know nothing about the engine specs of the bike but most speculates that R25 will have 32-35ps of horsepower that comes from 2-cylinder engine. It could also just be 1-cylinder engine since many manufacturer are pushing for fuel-efficiency. At least now, we know how long we have to wait before knowing everything about the R25.

The MT-125 are targeted as the learners bike for those who are looking for a streetfighter style ride but easy to handle for beginners. It got all the aura of its bigger brother, the 2-inline 689cc MT-07 and 3-inline 850cc MT-09 for that street-cred that some might be looking for. If you still remember, the ‘Dark’ trend started with the MT-09 ‘Discover Your Dark Side’ and then followed with MT-07 with ‘Rise Up Your Darkness’. Now it is seemingly correct to tag this MT-125 ‘Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark’ that can be related to the easy handling and more manageable power of the 125cc engine.   (more…)
