Its official, the naked sibling of R25 is coming and it will be called the MT-25. The name will be borrowed from its seniors in the lineup; the MT-07 and MT-09. Codenamed as B04, the MT-25 is believed to be introduced in Indonesia within a matter of few months, rumoured to be launched after Eid (which takes place in the 3rd week of July-2015).
The MT-25 would carry over its engine from the R25.
Because of this spyshot imparted by Iwanbanaran.com, we have an affirmation that the street fighter that was every now and again seen on-tests in Indonesia will get the ‘MT-25′ moniker. The head light cluster, not at all like the greater MTs, looks somewhat changed. It gets LED pilot lights just over the head lights. The front suspension forks, which are believed to be upside down, are darkened like the ones in MT-07.
The launch of Yamaha R25 & MT-25 has not yet been confirmed for India.
The MT logo will be present alongside the displacement figure on tank extensions like the other MT bikes. It likewise gets a small visor for helping against the wind blast. The report further expresses that Yamaha is relied upon to launch both the ABS and additionally non-ABS variations in the meantime. The motorcycle will basically be the same twin chamber 249 cc motor which delivers 36 PS of force and 22.6 Nm of torque on the R25. We are not certain if there will be any detuning but we highly doubt that Yamaha will be tinkering with it.
We are still waiting for the R25 to reach here, let alone its naked sibling but you never know what Yamaha may have in store for us.
