yzf-r25_main

In 1998, Yamaha Motor launched its new flagship supersport model YZF-R1 (1,000cc), which won acclaim for its exciting performance on winding roads, thanks to the combination of its high-performance engine and lightweight frame. Since then, Yamaha Motor continued its expansion of the YZF-R series through the launch of YZF-R6 (600cc) and YZF-R7 (750cc). And in 2008, YZF-R15 (150cc) and YZF-R125 (125cc) were introduced to India and Europe respectively. The new YZF-R25 is developed not only for the Indonesian market where the popularity of sports models has been increasing, but also as a 250cc supersports model to cater for the global market.  Continue reading “Gallery: 2014 Yamaha YZF-R25 – a superbike you can ride everyday”

2014 Yamaha YZF-R25 Officially Unveiled in Indonesia – 2-inline DOHC 8-valve 36PS 250cc power – Rp 53million (RM14,893.00)

YZF-R25-tmcblog1

2014 Yamaha YZF-R25 has been unveiled officially in Indonesia for its world premiere. It is a very interesting bike and focuses on the performance which is exactly what Yamaha should do and they do deliver. It comes in 3 colour choices that is Diablo Red, Racing Blue and Predator Black. That Racing Blue version really reminds me of the livery of the YZR-M1 that is being used currently in MotoGP 2014.

As I told you earlier this is an interesting bike. I love this bike as soon as I know the official specs. It delivers 36PS (35.5hp, 26.5kW) at 12,000RPM with torque rated at 22.1Nm at 10,000RPM. This is definitely one of the highest power rating for a 250cc bike compared to currently available in the market. As a comparison, look at these numbers: 2011 Kawasaki Ninja 250 2-cylinder is at 32hp, 2011 Naza Blade 250 V-Twin 2-cylinder at 28.8hp and YZF-R25 only lower than 1998 Kawasaki ZX250R 4-inline at 45hp (this one higher la cause 4-inline, I put here to compare only la bro).  Continue reading “2014 Yamaha YZF-R25 Officially Unveiled in Indonesia – 2-inline DOHC 8-valve 36PS 250cc power – Rp 53million (RM14,893.00)”
