Yamaha YXF-R400 and Yamaha YZF-R650

Already news about Yamaha developing a quarter litre bike has already been available over the cyber space over sometime from now. The latest report from Yamaha Indonesia had confirmed that Yamaha was already developing the quarter litre bike whose launch is expected to take place before the end of 2013.

Apart from this, Yamaha is rumored to be working on 400cc and 650cc sports bike which is expected to compete the likes of Kawasaki Ninja ER-6 and Honda CBR500R as per the information obtained by a Japanese Magazine, Young Machines. From the fact of Yamaha recently showcasing a new twin cylinder engine to the journalists might actually prove ideal to power these two bikes. The new twin-cylinder engine might directly power the 650cc sports bike or even could be brought down to power the 400cc bikes in some markets.

However, if the 650cc sports bike is launched then the rumored Yamaha YZF-R650 would be placed below the R6 rather than replacing it. Further information regarding details and specifications of these bikes is yet not available. We at BharathAutos would keep you updated as more details regarding this rumored bike rolls out.
