A note from our friend, Mr Norick, has tipped us about the upcoming presence of the Yamaha YZF-R25 which is planned for CKD production on first quarter of 2015. This can be a great leap taken by HLYM since it has been a very long time we haven’t seen any 250cc bike from Yamaha in Malaysia. If this is true, YZF-R25 will fight against the popular Kawasaki Ninja 250 which is also a 250cc bike equipped with inline-two engine. Yamaha YZF-R25 is a very interesting bike since it features a powerful engine in its class for a 2-cylinder 4-stroke engine with a styling that looks Japanese enough. The bike can produce 35.5hp at 12,000RPM and 22.1Nm at 10,000RPM. Based on this information, we can see that this engine is a high-revving engine and because of that it can gives a nice growl when it get revs high.
On a other note, we have now the specific date of the launch of the 2014 CBR250R dual headlight that is on 27th. That is just 2 days away (on Friday). We are hoping to see this bike soon and very eager to know the price. We have estimated the price earlier at RM16,500 but that doesn’t seem possible. Maybe it will be price the same with current model that is at RM18,799.00 for the non-ABS and RM21,799.00 for ABS variant. Still, we are hoping Boon Siew Honda to announce a lower price.
Thanks to bro Norick!
